Decrease in the vertical dimension of the surgical site, resulting in an open bite References:. Condylectomies are also usually followed by a reconstruction procedure. In terms of mandibular dynamics, an average of Hyperplasia of the mandibular condyle. From the functional point of view, the mandibular dynamic is maintained with no significant changes when the high condylectomy ckndylectomy performed [ 57 ].

Treatment of hemimandibular hiperplasia: The age was between 16 and 30 years old with 6 male and 8 female. Noise was observed in 3 patients and pain was observed in two patients with level 2 and 1 VAS score. It is made up of mandibular condyles, the articular surface of the temporal bone, an articular disc, a lateral pterygoid, a capsule, and ligaments. Introduction Condylar hyperplasia is a gmj pathology that frequently causes facial asymmetry [ 1 ]. As such, condylectlmy plays a key role in eating and speaking.

These disorders typically cause symptoms such as:. Facial asymmetry and condylar hyperplasia: The cndylectomy were assessed with 3 or more time after surgery and were considering condyelctomy mouth opening, right and left lateralities, presence of pain, noises, alterations in the facial nerve VII and esthetic alteration from the scar.

The condylar fragment was subsequently removed and the articular disc repositioned without suturing or capturing it. DocDoc has Asia’s largest healthcare physician network with 23, doctors, clinics and 55 hospitals from various specialties throughout the region.


One complication observed postoperatively is the decrease in the vertical dimension of the operated side of the mandible, which causes immediate premature contact in the ipsilateral molars, resulting in a contralateral open bite.

The diagnosis and treatment of the cases was based on the protocol previously published by Olate [ 6 ]. However, condylectomy is more effective in patients who suffer from organic TMJ disorders or those that are stress-related.

TMJ function after partial condylectomy in active mandibular condylar hyperplasia

The TMJ is a condylar joint and is the main joint of the jaw. The laterality was observed with 9.

Few investigations have studied post-condylectomy joint function, which limits comparison with our results [ 6 ]. Distribution of 14 patient with condilectomy and his situation in relation to function of mandible. Verified Doctors Our goal is to give you access to powerful and credible information that is not available anywhere else. However, some patients eventually require surgery if the disorders do not respond to treatment or if their conditions do not improve.

Cobdylectomy The patients were operated without complications.

Condylectomy for temporomandibular joint dysfunction. A survey of seventeen postoperative patients.

In our patients it was not possible to observe characteristics condyledtomy osteoarthritis, perhaps due to the short follow-up time, but we confirmed normal mandibular function in terms of dynamics and daily life conditioners. No limitations of zygomatic branch were observed at the time of evaluation Table 2.

The procedure is commonly performed on the lateral part of the joint. In a study involving condylecgomy patients, none of them had any pain during the follow-up visit. The surgical access was closed in layers up to skin level. Condylectomy is sometimes combined with other procedures, such as a caudal mandibulectomy.

Saridin [ 9 ] also reported that there condykectomy no depression-type changes in the patients after the condylectomy, which means the surgery carries no risk of causing depression in the postoperative stage.

Int J Clin Exp Med. The patients were operated without complications. Our results observed adequate mouth opening over 35 mm with no significant restrictions and adequate laterality. From a morphological ymj of view, a condyle with hyperplasia undergoes significant modifications including the condyle, the articular fossa and coronoid process being integrally affected by the disease and determining the growth of the entire mandible structure [ 10 ].

Comdylectomy a study performed on 17 patients who underwent condylectomy, 14 of them experienced relief from symptoms. The analysis was performed with the visual analog scale VAS and with a 7 cm metallic rule.
