Screw Wire Osteosynthesis for Mandibular Fractures

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1998;124(11):1271. doi:10-1001/pubs.Arch Otolaryngol. Head Neck Surg.-ISSN-0886-4470-124-11-olt1198

A recent article in the ARCHIVES by Wang et al1 was informative and very practical for those who treat large numbers of mandibular fractures. The technique is particularly useful in the mandibular angle where access is limited for intraoral open reduction and fixation. I have successfully used this technique both as a method of temporary alignment and as a definitive treatment procedure.
