A single 2.0mm mandible locking plate fixation as tension band for mandibular angle fracture

Objective: To evaluate the clinical effects of a single 2.0 mm mandible locking palate fixation as tension band for mandibular angle fracture.

Methods: All 58 cases use a single 2.0 mm mandible locking palate fixation as tension band for mandibular angle fracture. 3D CT of the mandible was taken for evaluation of bone healing.

Results: All 58 cases had bone healing. 2 cases (3.54%) had infection and second stage wound healing, 3 cases (5.17%) had malocclusion but recover to normal occlusion with the elastic fixation. All cases had no pain at 8 weeks after operation, and there were no recurrence fracture after removing the palate and screws.

Conclusion: The treatment with a single 2.0 mm mandible locking palateon the tension band fixation is a stable and reliable method for mandibular angle fracture.
