A logarithmic approach for treatment of condylar hyperplasia

Objectives: In the present study we set our experience in treatment 10 cases of condylar hyperplasia, their ages ranged from 17 to 35 years with a mean of 26 years.

Methods: We performed a guide where various modalities in treatment of condylar hyperplasia discussed such as condylectomy, vertical subsigmoid osteotomy and genioplasty. Many variables were considered including patient’s age, degree of chin deviation, degree of occlusal canting and patient satisfaction. Evaluation of all patients was done by both clinical and radiological methods.

Results: All patients were operated upon and followed up for a period ranged from 6 months up to 1 year. Their results were satisfactory including adequate facial contour, facial symmetry, proper occlusal relationship and accepted facial esthetics without relapse.

Conclusion: Condylar hyperplasia must be treated surgically as soon as documented both radiologically and clinically to correct esthetics and function.

Key words: condylar hyperplasia; scintigraphy; orthognathic surgery
