AbstractBackground: Mandible is also known as lower jaw or jaw bone. It is the largest and the strongest bone of our facial skeleton. It also holds the lower row of teeth in oral cavity. It is the only movable skull bone.
Objectives: If the patient is very sick due to trauma or due to other way, we prefer to do IMF only. But if the patient is stable one then we do IMF followed by ORIF in the same case. Material and Methods: we observed the patients with mandible fractures admitted through emergency and opd PMCH, Patna. Study duration of Two Years. Our study is focussed on the patients with history of RTA or assault or fall down with facial injury involving subcondylar fracture of mandible. The aforesaid patients undergo either conservative or operative management on random selection basis. These patients usually come from Patna as well as all districts of Bihar.
Conclusion: When we talk about the conservative approach it is only partially reliable for fractures of sub condyle of mandible. If the fracture is displaced or with dislocated TM Joint of that side, we should approach via operative one, while in un displaced simple fractures conservative is enough.
