Summary of "Management of unpredictable outcomes of costochondral grafts."

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is a debilitating mandibular hypomobility disorder that may be associated with serious functional and aesthetic deformities including limited mouth opening, impaired mastication and disturbances of facial and mandibular growth. The ultimate treatment goal of TMJ ankylosis is to restore altered joint mechanics, correct associated dentofacial deformities and prevent reankylosis.
