Abstract

The authors present their experience with a new crossed condylar and osteotomy plate, which is innovative because of the features of its design, and the instrumentation used for its application, as compared to the traditional AO blade plate. The plate is called "fork-shaped" because there are 2 prongs in place of the blade with a "U" profile, and it involves the use of more accurate and less traumatic instrumentation to implant it. The results of a study conducted on a group of 20 patients, who were homogeneous for pathology and surgery, treated by a fork-shaped osteotomy plate, compared with an equal number of patients treated by a blade plate, are reported. The results were better in the group treated with a fork plate because there was a more accurate correspondence with the preoperative planning, and because there were fewer intraoperative complications, and time required for surgery was shorter.
