Traumatic intracranial intrusions of the mandibular condyle are a rare injury pattern that carries significant morbid outcomes due to potential for neurological, otological, temporomandibular joint damage, or joint ankylosis. Treatment modalities involve either closed reduction, open approaches via transcranial or subtemporal approaches, or delayed total joint replacement. This paper presents a clinical report of a traumatic intracranial intrusion of the mandibular condyle treated with an endoscopically assisted preauricular approach to reconstruct the middle cranial fossa and temporomandibular articular disc...

With increasing clinical evidence, the replacement of the temporomandibular joint with alloplastic joints is being increasingly accepted in severe degenerative diseases. There remains a risk of infection and a possibility of a failure of not just these prostheses but any alloplastic joint prosthesis post-operatively. Therefore, an extra precaution and additional coverage to the joint using partial thickness myo-temporalis rotation flap could be a useful option to minimize post-operative joint failure.

Fibrocartilage is found in the knee meniscus, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc, the pubic symphysis, the annulus fibrosus of intervertebral disc, tendons, and ligaments. These tissues are notoriously difficult to repair due to their avascularity, and limited clinical repair and replacement options exist. Tissue engineering has been proposed as a route to repair and replace fibrocartilages. Using the knee meniscus and TMJ disc as examples, this review describes how fibrocartilages can be engineered toward translation to clinical use...

BACKGROUND: Synovial chondromatosis (SC) of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) occupies 3% SC cases. In other joints like hip and knee which were composed hyaline cartilage (HC), loose bodies (LBs) were reported to be a HC feature. However, condyle surface and disc in TMJ are fibrous cartilage (FC). Therefore, we proposed a different pathogenesis of TMJSC. METHODS: LBs and synovium were collected from seven TMJSC patients, and histological and immunohistological examinations were performed...

PURPOSE: Idiopathic condylar resorption (ICR) is a relatively uncommon condition. Its diagnosis, etiology, and management options are controversial. Furthermore, it is difficult for 1 provider to collect a large cohort of ICR patients to develop a statistically significant study of these concerns. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to survey experienced temporomandibular joint (TMJ) surgeons who have managed ICR cases relative to these concerns, as well as review the management outcome literature...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine the long-term outcomes following TMJ replacement using the stock Zimmer-Biomet TMJ device. In particular, investigated whether the titanium condylar implant and number of screws used to fixate it to the mandibular ramus had any impact on outcomes. METHODS: Subjects who underwent surgical implantation of a stock Zimmer-Biomet TMJ prosthesis were identified for this retrospective study. All patients received a titanium condylar component secured with four or five screws and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fossa with no metal reinforcement...

Young females with retruded and hyperdivergent mandibles, class II openbite malocclusions, and steep occlusal planes with or without TMJ symptoms are at higher risk for Idiopathic Condylar Resorption (ICR). Such patients undergoing orthodontic and /or surgical treatment should be informed of possible relapse due to ICR. Orthognathic Surgery with Total joint replacement or Orthognathic surgery alone may both be acceptable options for management of the facial deformity and the malocclusion that ensues from ICR...

Prosthetic total temporomandibular joint (TMJ) replacement (TJR) is well established in the United Kingdom, with clear guidelines for indications and nationally published outcomes. CAD/CAM technology has made it possible to push the boundaries of custom-made TJR to include extended versions (eTJR), which may replace segmental mandibular defects or defects in the skull base with extended components for the ramus and fossa, respectively. Such prostheses are uncommon, and published reports are restricted to isolated cases and series of cases...

Tissue engineering (TE) may provide effective alternative treatment for challenging temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pathologies associated with disc malpositioning or degeneration and leading to severe masticatory dysfunction. Aim of this study was to evaluate the potential of chitosan/alginate (Ch/Alg) scaffolds to promote fibro/chondrogenic differentiation of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) and production of fibrocartilage tissue, serving as a replacement of the natural TMJ disc. Ch/Alg scaffolds were fabricated by crosslinking with CaCl2 combined or not with glutaraldehyde, resulting in two scaffold types that were physicochemically characterized, seeded with DPSCs or human nucleus pulposus cells (hNPCs) used as control and evaluated for cell attachment, viability, and proliferation...

OBJECTIVES: Patients suffering from osteoarthritis, ankylosis (e.g. post-trauma or tumour) in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can present with symptoms such as severely restricted mouth opening, pain or other dynamic restrictions of the mandible. To alleviate the symptoms, a total joint prosthesis can be indicated, such as the Groningen TMJ prosthesis. This was developed as a stock device with a lowered centre of rotation for improved translational and opening capacity. This study aimed to improve the design of the prosthesis, and produce a workflow for a customized Groningen TMJ prosthesis, in order to make it more accurate and predictable...

Treatment of patients with bilateral temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis in a single-stage procedure can be challenging. The implementation of intraoperative navigation has proved beneficial by enabling faster and safer excision by providing real-time identification of vital structures. Navigation also can be used to verify site preparation for custom joint prostheses. This article seeks to establish a protocol, based on the use of intermaxillary fixation screws, to produce accurate and repeatable outcomes for the correction of bilateral TMJ ankylosis with total joint replacement in a single-stage procedure...

Reconstruction of degenerated temporomandibular joint (TMJ) structures remains a clinical challenge. Tissue engineering (TE) is a promising alternative to current treatment options, where the TMJ is either left without functional components, or replaced with autogenous, allogeneic, or synthetic grafts. The objective of this systematic review was to answer the focused question: in experimental animal models, does the implantation of biomaterial scaffolds loaded with cells and/or growth factors (GFs) enhance regeneration of the discal or osteochondral TMJ tissues, compared with scaffolds alone, without cells, or GFs? Following PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analysis) guidelines, electronic databases were searched for relevant controlled preclinical in vivo studies...
