OBJECTIVE To compare the removal rates of 8-hole angle strut plate and Champy line plate in repairing mandibular angle fractures. METHODS Retrospective chart review at a tertiary care academic center of adults who were at least 18 years old with at least 1 mandibular angle fracture of a traumatic origin who underwent open reduction and internal fixation by using single monocortical miniplate fixation in Champy line or by using 8-hole angle strut plate via transbuccal approach. The outcome… CONTINUE READING
