Mandibular condylar fractures are relatively common fractures, accounting for 29 to 52% of all mandibular fractures. Recently, the debate between closed versus open treatment of the condylar fracture ...
The in vivo mechanoresponsive and lubricating changes of the mandibular condylar cartilage (MCC) associated with mandibular lateral shift (MLS) and recovery are poorly understood. Using growing rats, ...
The objectives of the study are to analyze volumetric differences of condylar volumes in patients with unilateral and bilateral JIA and to compare results with control condylar volumes.
Condylar fractures are the most common fractures of the mandible, and treatment of mandibular condylar fractures by maxillofacial surgeons is a very important procedure. However, the surgical approach...
In condylar fracture surgery, reduction is the most difficult step and the key factor which determined the postoperative outcome. Therefore, the aim of this study is to develop a new instr...

Of all the bones in the maxillofacial area, the condylar process is the most susceptible to fracture. The incidence of condylar fracture accounts for 25% to 50% of all mandibular fractures...
In the small and highly specialized field of TMJ surgical treatments, restriction of the mandibular condylar movement outside of the articular eminence is one of the treatment choices sugg...
Patients with mandibular sub-condylar fractures underwent either either open reduction with internal fixation (ORIF) or closed reduction with external fixation (CREF) and were followed up ...
Greatly exaggerated width of the mouth, resulting from failure of union of the maxillary and mandibular processes, with extension of the oral orifice toward the ear. The defect may be unilateral or bilateral. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Predicting the time of OVULATION can be achieved by measuring the preovulatory elevation of ESTRADIOL; LUTEINIZING HORMONE or other hormones in BLOOD or URINE. Accuracy of ovulation prediction depends on the completeness of the hormone profiles, and the ability to determine the preovulatory LH peak.
A complete denture replacing all the natural mandibular teeth and associated structures. It is completely supported by the oral tissue and underlying mandibular bone.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
