Application of 2.0 mm Titanium Plates in Rigid Internal Fixation of Mandibular Angle Fractures.


ABSTRACT: PURPOSE: The present study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and stability of 2.0 mm Titanium plates in treatment of mandibular angle fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A randomized, prospective study was carried out on 17 patients treated by ORIF with 2.0 mm titanium plates. Operative handling of the plate and clinical stability were qualitatively analyzed. RESULTS: The 2.0 mm plate showed good intra-operative handling and adequate clinical stability with follow up of 6 months showing good soft tissue healing. CONCLUSION: A single 2.0 mm titanium plate provides easy handling and adequate occlusal stability in the post-operative phase as compared to the traditional 2.5 mm plate without post-operative MMF. ELECTRONIC SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL: The online version of this article (doi:10.1007/s12663-010-0128-2) contains supplementary material, which is available to authorized users.
