Abstract

Mandible fractures represent a common sequela of craniomaxillofacial trauma encountered by reconstructive surgeons. Management of complex mandibular fractures, and reestablishment of the occlusal relationship, represents a challenging reconstructive endeavor for even the most skilled surgeon. In this article, the authors review the treatment options for particularly complex presentations of this injury pattern.
