Abstract

Introduction:

The increased incidence of face trauma has resulted in the development of new methods for internal fixation, enhancements to plating systems, and innovations in the exposure of facial skeleton, all of which have fueled the fast adoption of internal fixation for the treatment of facial fractures. This study presents the efficacy of microplate in comparison to miniplate by evaluating 40 patients who had confirmed midfacial (Le Fort I and II) and mandibular fractures. The evaluation was done in order to compare the two types of plates in terms of load bearing capacity, stability at the fracture site, and postoperative palpability. The goals of this study are to determine whether or not microplates are more effective than miniplates in the treatment of maxillofacial injuries.

Materials and the Methods:

The study sample consisted of 40 patients, 20 from each of two groups clinically and radiographically diagnosed with either Group 1 (maxillary) or Group 2 (mandibular) fractures. These groups were further separated into 10 subjects each who were treated with miniplate and microplate, respectively. Following surgery, observations were made about the stability of the fracture, the biting force, the need for postop MMF, pain, infection, wound dehiscence, mouth opening, and occlusion, as well as palpability. Every patient has been clinically examined for a minimum of three months using a variety of measures in order to determine any potential postoperative problems.

Results: As a result of our research, we discovered that microplates had sufficient load bearing capability and sufficient stability. Postoperative palpability is reduced because to close adaptation and fewer pieces of hardware, but a bigger sample research with a longer-term follow-up is required before a conclusion can be drawn about its effectiveness in load-bearing fracture sites.

 Conclusion: Biting force efficiency, bite force devices, microplates, and miniplates are some of the keywords that may be found here.
