Special instruments for the endoscopic restoration of fractures of the temporomandibular joint
Temporomandibular joint surgery has received major changes in the past 20 years. For example, functionally stable osteosynthesis techniques, such as the mini-plate and the tension screw, have been introduced. Depending on the localization of the fracture - diacapitular fractures, joint neck fractures and joint base fractures - the developed access methods are continuously advanced further. The support of endoscopes is gaining increased importance in this area. The access techniques are becoming minimally invasive and at the same time safer for the patient, but they are becoming more elaborate and technically demanding for the surgeon. The specifically developed instruments of the Endo-Condyle Unit offer a number of options for repositioning the dislocated fragment of the temporomandibular joint. In combination with our osteosynthesis plates, they round off our portfolio for the restoration of temporomandibular fractures.
