Closed Reduction of the Mandibular Fracture

by Meredith Blitz, Kurt Notarnicola
Atlas of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics of North America ()


The search for the ideal method of treatment for mandibular fractures has continued for thousands of years. These injuries have unique and problematic features for adequate reliable wound healing. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons must learn and master several techniques for mandibular fracture treatment. The age-old successful management of these injuries using closed reduction techniques always should be considered when mandibular trauma presents. The closed reduction remains a mainstay of mandibular fracture treatment. An adequate knowledge of anatomy, multiple closed reduction techniques, and the physiology of fracture healing must be adequately understood and technically mastered by the oral and maxillofacial surgical team for the present and future of mandibular fracture management. ?? 2009 Elsevier Inc.
