PURPOSE To assess the internal fixation requirements for combined mandibular angle and contralateral body or symphysis fractures of the mandible. PATIENTS AND METHODS Two sample groups of patients treated for combined angle and body/symphysis fractures were compared for the development of major complications, defined as a need for another surgical intervention. The groups were divided based on whether they were treated with rigid or nonrigid fixation of the body or symphysis fracture… CONTINUE READING
