Treatment of condylar process fractures is a highly debated topic because available minimal scientific evidence is concerning outcomes comparing open and closed treatment. Decisions on treatment are therefore based more upon experience, training, and whim rather than upon outcome data. This article presents the author's open and closed techniques for treating condylar process fractures and briefly discusses considerations about which fractures deserve open treatment.
