Abstract

DE MORAES, Paulo Hemerson et al. TMJ Total Joint Prosthesis for Condylar Fracture Malunion. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2012, vol.6, n.2, pp.241-244. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2012000200020.

In the international literatura exist some information related to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) involvement in condylar fracture malunion; the treatment is variated being executed with a bone reconstruction, ramus vertical osteotomy or condilar plate. This case demonstrates that TMJ replacement with prosthetic joint is technically possible and appropriate in the case of malunion of condylar fracture.

Keywords : condylar fracture; malunion bone; TMJ prostheses.
