There was also a posterior open bite on the right side Figure 2. The macrocospic morphology of the condyle has recently been analyzed by two studies published by the group at the Universidad de La Frontera Olate et al. Intraorally, the midline is deviated to the non affected side while contralateral lower molars move in a lingual direction in an attempt to achieve occlusion. One month after the operation, the patient presented facial symmetry Figure 9stable occlusion, as well as matching dental and facial midlines Figure Surgical procedures to correct mandibular prognathism and reshaping of the chin.

Bone scintigraphy as a diagnostic method in unilateral hyperactivity of the mandibular condyles: A historical review of important early cases with a presentation and analysis of twelve patients.

Condylar morphology revealed the presence of a curved area similar to the morphology of a normal condyle, although with the smaller head Fig. The surgical correction of mandibular prognathism and retrognathia with consideration of genioplasty I. There was onset of pain in the left preauricular region as well as a decrease of oral opening, which was 20 mm when the patient arrived at the condlar. Facial asymmetry secondary to mandibular condylar hyperplasia.

Asimetría facial secundaria a hiperplasia condilar mandibular: Reporte de un caso

After the surgery, the first analysis was done with imaging within the first month and between 12 and 16 months after the procedure. Condylar Hyperplasia CH is defined as an excessive unilateral growth of the mandibular condyle which elicits facial asymmetry and occlusal alterations.

On clinical examination, facial asymmetry was evident as a result of mandibular deviation to the left, mandibular prognathism, maxillary retrognathism, and anterior and posterior crossbite Fig. Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop. Analysis and follow-up with 3D imaging. Nine subjects were included in this study 6 female and 3 male with an average age of Facial changes during treatment. The diagnosis of right CH associated with dentofacial deformity was made.

Decision to perform a condylectomy is made based on evidence of active changes in the hyperplastic condyle, or when observing clinical or radiographic suggestions of pathological conditions like: Relationship between condylar size and transverse facial asymmetry in subject with condylar hyperplasia. Casilla D Temuco – Chile Tel.: The surgery for low condylectomy involves making surgical incisions at the TMJ through an external approach. The reasons why the condyle starts growing and becomes hyperplastic are unknown.

Quantitative analysis of planar bone scintigraphy in patients with unilateral condylar hyperplasia.

Tratamento da assimetria facial causada por hiperplasia condilar: série de casos.

A hiperplasix Le Fort I osteotomy is favorable for the correction of maxillary deficiencies and lack of zygomatic projection. The surgical technique, performed with a piezoelectric system, can also influence this recovery as it has been observed that the vibration of the system might stimulate the expression of factors associated with bone repair Olate etal. The aim of this study was to define the repair and morphology observed in mandibular condyles of temporomandibular joint TMJ with UCH diagnosis, treated with a condylectomy.

Ihperplasia scintigraphy is an option for visualizing hyperactivity in the condyle.

However, remote access to EBSCO’s databases from non-subscribing institutions is not allowed if the purpose of the use is for commercial gain through cost reduction or avoidance for a non-subscribing institution.

Analysis of the condyle, articular fossa and mandibular ramus in subjects with active condylar hyperplasia. When viewing the condylar head, an intact articular disk could be appreciated, therefore it was preserved. This abstract may be abridged. Orthodontic treatment before the operation is of the utmost importance. In the present case, and in hiperpalsia other cases managed by the surgical team, a preauricular confilar is always the surgical approach of choice, because it provides sufficient visualization to perform the condylectomy and articular disc repositioning, even in this complex case of removal of a large hyperplastic condyle.


It is characterized by oral commissure asymmetry, with little or no deviation of the chin, intraorally, an increase of the maxillary alveolar bone height can be observed as well as a downward deviation of the ipsilateral occlusal plane.

Nowadays, the combination of different parameters of nuclear medicine, clinical studies and imaging follow-up could determine the progressive and active nature of UCH.

The chondrocytes are arranged as rows perpendicular to the surface of conilar lesion and may overlie condilr zone of endochondral ossification, resulting in fusion of the cancellous bone with the normal underlying bone.

However, the treatment for UCH does have some consensus: Condylar hyperplasia of the temporomandibular joint: Condylectomy; Bone remodeling; Condylar hyperplasia. Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso. It is important to psychologically prepare the patient to accept the major changes that occur during and after the surgical-orthodontic treatment Figure Vertical osteotomy of the mandibular ramus was also reported.

Facial asymmetry caused by mandibular deviation to the left, mandibular prognathism, maxillary retrognathism, and anterior and posterior crossbite.

Facial asymmetry and condylar hyperplasia: Osteochondroma of the condyle: In fact, during skeletogenesis in the embryological stage, the initial formation of basic cartilage is avascular at first; when the chondrocytes finalize their hypertrophic process, they are invaded by blood vessels Maes,a condition that can be hypothesized in this case series.

CH type 1 refers to an accelerated and prolonged growth aberration of the “normal” mandibular condylar growth mechanism, causing a predominantly horizontal growth vector and resulting in prognathism that can occur bilaterally CH type 1A or unilaterally CH type 1B. The CBCT at 1 month showed a clear and distinct slice of the condyle without defects or irregularities; the distance from the condylar remnant to the articular fossa reached 8.
