In the first instance, the TMJ was examined by viewing 0.5 mm axial slices; the coronal slices were selected from the axial views on which condylar process
is the widest in mediolateral dimension.
Comparative studies on these mechanical fixing methods have been carried out and characterized in hemi-mandibles that are fixed in the condylar process
, and the force is applied in the molar region (Ribeiro-Junior et al.; Pektas et al.).
It runs deep to the condylar process
. The nerve courses posterior to the condylar process
, pierces the parotid gland, and surfaces at the facial soft tissue.

(7) The present report shows a massive involvement of the body, angle, and ramus of the mandible extending to the coronoid and condylar process
. The present case shows multilocular expansile lesion, a displacement of tooth bud 37, and a thin inferior border of the mandible.
The inferior head comes from the lateral plate of the pterygoid process and inserts into the condylar process
of the mandible.
The fracture classification system of the condylar process
used was the system of Lindahl [sup] and Neff et al .,[sup] as shown in [Figure 1].
In the study of the Santler et al  two hundred and thirty four patients with fractures of the mandibular condylar process
were treated by Open or Closed methods.
There was mandibular hypoplasia with narrow right condylar process
, deepening of the right sigmoid notch, pseudoelongation of the ipsilateral condylar neck, thinner ramus and body, widened inferior alveolar canal, and enlarged mental foramen.
