The aim of this study on the mandibles of minipigs was to compare the biomechanical stability of different methods of osteosynthesis that are used in the operative treatment of fractures of the base of the condyle. Ten different systems of osteosynthesis were used to fix 164 fractures, which were tested by a two-point bending test after repositioning and fixing. This stress test was applied in four directions: lateral to medial, anterior to distal, distal to anterior, and medial to lateral. The… CONTINUE READING
