Abstract

Fracture through the angle of the mandible is one of the most common maxillofacial injuries sustained in modern societies. Among issues related to the treatment of maxillofacial injuries, those concerning angle fractures are the most hotly debated, with the exception perhaps of those concerning the condylar process of the mandible. There are several reasons for this controversy about treatment of angle fractures, a controversy too often made up of arguments founded on emotion rather than on scientific information. This article discusses some of the controversies in the management of such fractures.
