Mandibular fractures in sports. Retrospective study of 48 cases



Mandibular fractures in sports. Retrospective study of 48 cases



Revue de Stomatologie et de Chirurgie Maxillo-Faciale 100(6): 306-310



We present a retrospective study of 48 isolated mandibular fractures related to athletic activities. We studied patient age, sex, sport involved, mandibular location of the fracture and the therapeutic implication. The sex ratio was 4/1 and mean age 24 years. Rugby and cross-country biking were the more frequently involved sports (79%). We recall preventive measures. Miniplate osteosynthesis was used as often as possible in order to avoid intermaxillary fixation (IMF) (40%) or to limit the duration of IMF. This allowed early return to sport activities.
