MOLINA MONTES, J. et al. Complications of self-tapping bone screws for maxillomandibular fixation in the treatment of jaw fracture. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2008, vol.30, n.4, pp.265-269. ISSN 2173-9161.

In the last decade, self-tapping bone screws have been used widely as a temporary maxillomandibular fixation method in the treatment of jaw fractures. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the complications of the technique and potential dental iatrogenesis over a period of 4 years. We reviewed a total of 62 patients and 272 screws. Although complications appeared, the complication rate was low.

Keywords : Maxillomandibular fixation; Jaw fracture; Complications; surgery.
