Abstract

Open reduction and internal fixation of mandibular fractures by intraosseous wiring in conjunction with intermaxillary fixation remains the mainstay of mandibular fracture treatment despite the availability of newer methods. The principles of treatment are reviewed, including indications for use of this technique and its advantages and disadvantages. Various surgical techniques are also reviewed and key points in their application emphasized.
