Present study also reported 3 cases of mandibular angle fracture with paraesthesia/anesthesia which was due to the inferior dental nerve damage or compression.8 This study also differs with the work of Ellis and Sinn who reported 32% cases of infection, 18.46 % of delayed union and only 1.53% of malunion which later caused malocclusion.9 In the study of Jennifer Lamphier of the 594 fractures 79 cases (13.30%) suffered from complications.
