Results: Sixty - three patients were treated with rehabilitation, 24 patients were treated with arthro-
scopy, and 25 were treated with a minimally invasive "hybrid technique" that included the lysis of intra- articular and extra-articular adhesion, the follow-up duration was 3 to 72 months, with a mean of 18.
All the patients were treated surgically by temporalis fascia flap interpositional arthro-
A number of surgical techniques have been de- veloped for correction of TMJ ankylosis but the most widely accepted technique is interpositional arthro-
plasty followed by reconstruction with autogeneous costochondral graft (CCG).

plasty, a variety of materials including skin grafts, temporalis muscle, temporalis fascia, homologous car- tilage, and silastic, silicone or acrylic implants have been used as interpositioning materials.
