PURPOSE This study evaluated the treatment of mandibular angle fractures via a single biodegradable plate and addressed complications such as malocclusion, infection, soft tissue dehiscence, and nonunion in these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS This prospective study consisted of 19 fractures in 19 patients (18 males and 1 female) with unilateral fractures of the mandibular angle treated by open reduction and rigid internal fixation using 1 biodegradable plate through an intraoral incision… CONTINUE READING
