This books builds on the seminal works presented at the International Bone Research. Association’s symposium devoted entirely to this subject, which was held in Strasbourg, France in November 2007. Many preeminent experts in this field took part in the IBRA symposium. With this strong foundation, the book provides an excellent overview of current knowledge on the principles and strategies for treatment of condylar fractures The diagnosis and range of options available for treatment of fractures in the temporomandibular joint region are explained based on the anatomical, functional and biomechanical principles of the mandibular condyle. The latest findings of biomechanics research and their implications for treatment practice are portrayed in numerous illustrations and discussed in detail by the authors.
