Abstract

Mandibular fractures are the third most frequents maxillo-facial fractures. Most frequent site is the subcondylar region. Different approaches to reach subcondylar region, have been described. In the study was evaluated the advantages of neuromuscular block during endoscopic surgery for subcondylar fractures. Twenty-five patients affected by subcondylar fractures were enrolled in this study and divided in 2 groups; group A: patients who received an intraoperative booster of curare during surgical procedure and group B patients who underwent surgery treated without the intraoperative booster of curare. All patients were treated successfully by endoscope-assisted transoral approach. The analysis of time required for surgery showed a reduction in group A comparing to group B. The mean time for surgery for the patients in group B with displacement between 08 and 458 was 170 minutes, and for 458 to 908 was 230 minutes. In group A, the mean time was 117.5 minutes for patients with condylar displacement between 08 and 458, and 147.5 minutes for the other group. In conclusion, deep neuromuscular block seems to improve the surgical conditions in patients undergoing subcondylar endoscopic assisted surgery, further study needs to assess this surgical technique in order to better define this surgical protocol.
