Abstract

Objective: To assess the pattern of presentation of mandibular parasymphysis fracture and its complications following open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF).

Setting: This study was conducted at oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Faculty of Dentistry, Liaquat University Hospital Hyderabad, Jamshoro from January 2017 to December 2018.

Methodology: 83 patients of either gender with age above 18 years having mandibular non comminuted parasymphysis fractures were included in the study. All the patients were treated with Open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) under general anesthesia with no maxillomandibular fixation. Postoperatively patients were assessed for complications like plate exposure, non union, malocclusion, wound infection and numbness.

Results: Males were affected more than females. Majority of patients encountered were in age range of 21 to 30 years (37.34%). Road traffic accident (55.42%) was main cause of trauma in this study followed by fall. Plate exposure was seen in 07 patients (8.43%), followed by wound infection in 5 patients (6.02%).

Conclusion: Open reduction with internal fixation offers better outcomes in the management of Parasymphysis fracture.
