Biomechanical Analysis of Implant plates for Mandibular Condyle fractures

Abstract [en]

In the field of maxillofacial surgery, the treatment for the recovery of the fracture at condyle region of the mandible has been carried out using Bio-metals

such as Titanium, Cobalt, Stainless-Steel because they were considered the standard materials for Implant plate devices for fracture fixation.

Using these materials have led to undesired disturbances where the patient must undergo secondary surgery after recovery leading to exposure of the fracture site to the surrounding,

metal-ion release into the human system, stress-shielding and interruption during imaging i.e. (Computerized tomography scans).

The healing of the mandible requires a delicate and stable fixation procedure for the bone structure to heal.

Bio-resorbable materials are the renovation for substituting metals for recovery of the fracture.

The main dis-advantage using resorbable plates is absence of mechanical strength and stability.

Bio-composites are the innovation for the treatment of the fractures the main study for this thesis is comparing the combination bio-ceramic and bio-resorbable materials using Finite Element Analysis software.
