Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy and stability of rectangular grid compression miniplate in displaced mandibular angle fracture.
Materials and methods: This prospective study was carried out in 10 patients using 2.0 mm three-dimensional (3D) rectangular grid compression miniplates and 8 mm multidirectional screws as a rigid internal fixation in 10 patients without postoperative intermaxillary fixation (IMF). Clinical evaluations were postoperatively performed at 15 and 30 days and 3 and 6 months, and the complications encountered were recorded and treated. Results: All fractures were healed with an absolute stability in postoperative period. None of the patient complained of postoperative problem in occlusion. Conclusion: Rectangular grid compression miniplate is rigid, reliable with low complication rates, easy handling, and easy adjustment, with a low cost and thus can be recommended for the treatment of mandibular angle fractures with sufficient interfragmentary contact.
