The blocking intramedullary osteosynthesis is the "gold standard" in the osteosynthesis of diaphyseal fractures of long tubular bones (Jenny et al.
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, US), miniplate osteosynthesis holds technical advantages over intermaxillary fixation for allowing bone healing of fractures of the facial skeleton in that: plates are small and easily adapted, they are applied monocortically, the approach is intraoral, and the plates provide functional stability that is biomechanically balanced.
The methods have ranged from maxillomandibular fixation (MMF) to combinations of MMF and wire osteosynthesis, lag screw, and plate fixation.
Today, the most used method for fractured bone osteosynthesis is surgical internal fixations, because the heeling time is shorter and bone reduction is much better than with the other method.
