Dual plating provides better stability, buttress effect for both the condyles and good alignment of the limb.
Mandibular injuries are not uncommon and a number of factors influence the pattern of injury including age, gender, occupation, socio-economic status and direction and impact of force.1 Condylar fractures are the most common among mandibular fractures constituting up to 29-56%.2 Higher incidence of condylar fracture is due to different biomechanical factors such as variation in bone density and different anatomical structures which result in weakening of certain areas.3,4 Impact forces are indirectly transmitted and directed towards condyle because of the joint between highly rigid ramus of mandible and less rigid condyle.
The rest of the parameters were expressed in ordinal scale (AI, DI, and VAS) or nominal scale (gender, condyles position in TMJ, and different pain types), and nonparametrical tests such as Mann-Whitney and Chi-squared tests with Yates correction were used.
Three days following admission, the patient was extubated without complication and plans were arranged for surgical repositioning of the mandibular condyle and skull base reconstruction.
These etiological factors involve abnormal biomechanical forces applied to the mandibular condyle, altering the shape and function of the articular structures [10, 11].
