Pooja Yadav, Balaji Sekher* and Sushil G. Jha

ABSTRACT

Background: The first ever inscription on mandibular fractures dates back to 1650 BC. Modern life is very fast which includes high speed travel and a violent, intolerant society making everyone susceptible to facial trauma. The facial area is one of the most frequently injured parts of the body and hence vulnerable to fracture. The presence of teeth in the mandible is the most important anatomical factor, which makes its fracture different from fractures elsewhere in the body Aims and Objectives: The aim of the study is to evaluate & compare the study on 30 cases of mandibular fracture with the existing literature on its etiology, pattern, gender and anatomical distribution. Materials and Method: The study was carried out on 30 cases of mandibular fracture cases who visited Otorhinolaryngology department of Sir. T. Hospital Government medical college, Bhavnagar. Results: In the study it was observed that Males are more commanly affected than females. Road Traffic Accident being the most common cause for the fracture mandible. Body of mandible was the most common site to be injured followed by angle and condyle. Ramus was the least common site of fracture. Conclusion: Thus we conclude that as the males are most commonly involed in the outdoor activities than the female so Males are more susceptible to mandible fracture with R.T.A. being the most common etiology for the fracture and Body of mandible is the most frequent site affected.
