Endoscopically assisted surgical removal of osteoma from the condylar neck mandible – an experience

Jeremy JK Lee, Norma Jalil, Khairulzaman Adnan, Zul Izzi Nordin: Endoscopically assisted surgical removal of osteoma from the condylar neck mandible – an experience. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 2011; 9: 21–26.

Abstract: Removing a lesion arising from the condylar neck usually needs an extraoral preauricular incision for good access and visibility. However with the introduction of endoscopes the lesion in the condylar neck can be removed intraorally through a small incision. As the lesion is hidden behind the coronoid process a decision was made to do a coronoidectomy for better access and improve visibilty to the area to facilitate the cut and its removal.

We present a case whereby an osteoma arising from the condylar neck was removed intraorally assisted with endoscopes.
