Severity of arthroscopically observed pathology and levels of inflammatory cytokines in the synovial fluid before and after visually guided temporomandibular joint irrigation correlated with the clinical outcome in patients with chronic closed lock.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the severity of arthroscopically observed pathologies and the levels of a set of inflammatory cytokines in aspirated synovial fluid (A-SF) in patients with chronic closed lock (CCL) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) before and after visually guided TMJ irrigation (VGIR). Furthermore, the findings were correlated… (More)
