Abstract

Fracture of mandibular condyle represent 25% to 30% of all mandibular fractures and are thus among the most common facial fractures. There are variable pattern of fracture that may occur anywhere along the line from the sigmoid notch to the mandibular angle. It is often accompanied by fractures in other sites of the mandible. They differ from mandibular body fractures because they are more difficult to diagnose clinically and radiologically. Because of the importance of the condyle as the growth centre of the mandible and for lower accessibility, an accurate diagnosis and treatment of condyle fractures are very important. This review literature discussed about the various classifications of mandibular condylar fracture, the management options such as conservative management, open reduction internal fixation and the various open reduction managements.

Keywords: Fracture; Mandibular Condyle; Facial Fractures; Mandibular Angle
