PMID:  3864954     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Reported cases of dislocation of the mandibular condyle into the middle cranial fossa have been rare, and treatment modalities have varied. The case presented represents an instance of successful closed reduction. Numerous factors should be considered when determining the technique of reduction. Primary goals in selecting the method of treatment are stabilization of the neurologic status, control of the bone fragments in the brain, reduction of the occlusion, maintenance of ramus height for facial symmetry, preservation of growth potential, and assurance of satisfactory long-term function of the mandible.
