Manzoor Mohd Dar, Shamina Kosar, Sumera Gul , Nadeem Hassan , Abdul Latief Najar

ABSTRACT Background: Mandibular angle fractures represent the largest percentage of mandibular fractures. Two of the most common causes of mandibular angle fractures are motor vehicle collisions. Various techniques, including closed reduction, open reduction by non-rigid fixation with wire, and open reduction and rigid internal fixation with plates or lag screws, have been reported for the management of mandibular angle fractures. The present study was conducted to compare treatment modalities in the management of mandibular angle fractures. Materials & Methods: We planned the present study to compare mandibular fracture patients treated with various lines of treatment. A total of 90 patients were included in the present study. Complete demographic details about all the patients were obtained. Random division of all the patients was done into three study groups; group A, B and C included patients treated with locking plates, non-locking plates and bioresorbable plates respectively. All the complications were recorded and analyzed by SPSS software. Chi-square test was used for assessment of level of significance. Results: All the patients were broadly divided into three study groups with 30 patients in each group. Group A included patients who were treated with locking plates, group B included patients who were treated with non-locking plates while group C included patients who were treated with bioresorbable plating. We didnít observe any significant difference while comparing the number of complications in between various study groups. Conclusion: The authors didnít observe any significant difference while comparing the complications occurring in various lines of treatment in treating patients with mandibular angle fractures. Key words: Infection, Miniplates, Mandibular angle
