Magnetic resonance studies of the sagittal section of the lateral femoral condyle were described as an indirect finding if there was a 7 mm or greater anterior translocation of the tibia relative to the femur (25).
The pathogenesis of SONK of the medial femoral condyle remains unclear, although subchondral bone microfracture and local circulation disorders are widely accepted as common causes.
In our study using CBCT, we observed changes in the shape of the mandibular condyle from 25 days after MIA injection; the damage was most expressive 45 days after inducement, with a serious alteration in the shape.
Single midline approach allows better visualisation of fracture geometry of both tibial condyles and fracture reduction with low incidence of infection and wound complications if the surgery was done once the soft tissue condition improved.
Control processes in postnatal growth of mandibular condyle cartilage.
Mandibular fractures are quite common among facial fractures reaching up to 76%.5 Certain areas of mandible are relatively at more risk and fracture more frequently such as mandibular condyle 56.5%, symphysis 45%, mandibular body 25.5% and angle 16.5%.13 In this study males were the predominant gender with 74.67% of the total sample, which is in accordance with other studies.1,14,15 The greater number of males being affected by trauma is because of the fact that they are more exposed to the factors resulting in facial trauma such as motor vehicle driving, outdoor activities and interpersonal violence.1,6,7
The areas with the minimum principal stresses, which get low negative ratings in the articular disc, were observed in the anterior area of the surface of the articular disc facing the condyle in the FRD and screwed-FRD models.
