The most commonly used methods for fixation of mandibular fractures are Intermaxillary fixation, non-compression plates, Compression plates and Transosseous wiring. Only few studies are reported in the literature regarding Lag Screw fixation for the treatment of mandibular anterior fractures, & in most studies authors have used cortical screws (screws having threads all over the length of screw). The present study was undertaken to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of true lag screws (screws having threads at only terminal end) in the management of mandibular anterior fractures.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
1) To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of lag screws having threads at only...
