CARRASCO RUEDA, Carlos Alberto  and  VINITZKY BRENER, Ilan. Intraoral low condilectomy for the treatment of condylar hiperplasia. Case report. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2021, vol.43, n.3, pp.101-104.  Epub Oct 25, 2021. ISSN 2173-9161.

Condylar hyperplasia is a developmental malformation that causes abnormal growth of the mandibular condyle. It is a generic term that describes conditions that cause excessive growth and elongation of the mandibular condyle, altering the occlusion and indirectly affecting the maxilla. The usual treatment for this pathology consists of a condylectomy through an extraoral approach. The objective of this work is to present the case of an active unilateral condylar hyperplasia, which was treated by low condylectomy with an intraoral approach and orthognathic surgery. The intraoral approach to a condylectomy has been poorly documented; however it offers numerous advantages and can be performed safely.

Keywords : Condylectomy; intraoral; condylar hyperplasia; orthognatyc surgery.
