The present case report describes an external auditory canal injury following extraction of the lower molar. The external auditory canal was torn in the same fashion that occurs in an anterior tympanic plate fracture. This case demonstrates one of the rare complications associated with dental extractions.

The microscopic structure and function of the vascular retrodiscal pad of the human temporomandibular joint.
Histological features and position within the joint suggest that the retrodiscal pad may function differently from other human joints due to: (1) the large amount of distraction it undergoes relative to its size and (2) its location anterior to the ear. Expand
