Temporomandibular Joint Disorders
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome
A symptom complex consisting of pain, muscle tenderness, clicking in the joint, and limitation or alteration of mandibular movement. The symptoms are subjective and manifested primarily in the masticatory muscles rather than the temporomandibular joint itself. Etiologic factors are uncertain but include occlusal dysharmony and psychophysiologic factors.
Temporomandibular Joint Disk
A plate of fibrous tissue that divides the temporomandibular joint into an upper and lower cavity. The disk is attached to the articular capsule and moves forward with the condyle in free opening and protrusion. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p92)
Diseases or disorders of the muscles of the head and neck, with special reference to the masticatory muscles. The most notable examples are TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS and TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME.
Displacement of the femur bone from its normal position at the HIP JOINT.
ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: A dislocation of the temporomandibular joint represents three percent of all reported dislocated joints. The treatment entails reduction of the deformity and this can often be...
BACKGROUND: Several reconstruction procedures have been proposed to manage recurrent dislocation of the superior tibiofibular joint. HYPOTHESIS: Reconstruction of the superior tibiofibular joint using...
PURPOSE: This study was conducted to examine the risk factors for recurrent dislocation after total hip arthroplasty (THA) and test the hypothesis that late dislocations are associated with recurrence...
Bipolar clavicular dislocation rarely occurs. Although referred to by several different names (panclavicular dislocation, bifocal clavicle dislocation, traumatic floating clavicle, and periarticular c...

The purpose of this study is to compare non-operative treatment versus operative treatment in patients who suffer a complete, acute acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation. This study wil...
Glenohumeral joint dislocation is the most frequent joint dislocation with a prevalence of 1.7/100000 citizens/year. It is treated by reduction, under sedation or anaesthesia, followed by...
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJD) are a family of musculoskeletal disorders that represent the most common chronic orofacial pain condition. TMJD is associated with persistent pain...
Acromio-clavicular (AC) joint dislocation corresponds to 8.6% of all joint dislocations and represents a major injury to the shoulder girdle. The nature of the treatment is decided accordi...
Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is a widespread chronic pain condition. Successful psychosocial treatments for TMD have been developed, but the mechanisms by which these treatments achiev...
