sup][7],[13],[14] These problems can in turn cause new trauma responses of the fracture area, extend the inflammation period, stimulate large amounts of inflammation, stimulate blood vessel reactions, increase the local blood supply, induce vascularization, enhance intramembranous ossification and endochondral bone, and promote fracture healing.

Previous research which focused on the study of development of the symphysis and condyle (29) found that the cartilage of the mandibular condyle allows the endochondral bone to grow, thus exerting an adaptive role in the growing site, being this growth determined by genetic and epigenetic factors (30); but it can also be influenced by cytokines, hormones, vitamins and mechanical stimuli (31,32).
