ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the rear end collision, the most potential to cause injury to the carniomandibular/temporomandibular/cervical complex. The resulting hemorrhage in the joint caused by the injury initiates changes to the synovial fluids, lining and membranes and alters the synovial fluid content and function. The sequence of the injury is often complicated by angular forces, with a concomitant increase in the magnitude of the injury. There is no direct injury between the severity of the injury to the patient and the amount of damage to the vehicle.

    Background: Dislocation of the mandibular condyle into the middle cranial fossa is rare in clinics. It often occurs when the mouth is open wide during the injury. It causes restriction of mandibular motion, lower facial asymmetry, pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), etc. Objective: To...

    Fall is the third commonest cause of mandibular fracture throughout the world while in Pakistan and India it is considered to be the second most common cause. Mandible fracture resulting from fall is of great concern particularly in children because it has been found that in children majority of...

    Background: Early full weight-bearing after an acute osteochondral injury avoids problems associated with immobility but may also be harmful by amplifying the inflammatory response. To investigate these effects, we developed an in vivo model of subchondral trauma. Methods: After an impact injury...

    The interpretation of biotic changes in the geological past relies on the assumption that samples from different time intervals represent an equivalent suite of natural sampling conditions. As a result, detailed investigations of taphonomic regimes during intervals of major biotic upheaval, such...
