PURPOSE This study measured the strength to failure of the human temporomandibular joint (TMJ) lateral disc attachment (LDA) using a tension-compression machine. These data were correlated with the LDA location and its morphologic aspects, the age and sex of the subjects, and the amount of the lateral pterygoid muscle (LPM) inserted in the disc. METHODS Forty-two TMJs without any obvious internal damage were carefully dissected to preserve the LDA. The width of insertion of the lateral… CONTINUE READING
