The aim of this study was to find the most common pattern of multiple mandibular fractures among patients referred to Taleghani hospital (Tehran) and educational hospitals of Ahwaz Jundishapur University. Subjects and Mehtods: In this retrospective study, 305 files of patients with multiple mandibular fractures during years 1998–2005 were selected and the data such as age, pattern and the cause of fractures were collected.
ResultsThis study showed that in 85.6 percent of patients suffered from two fracture lines in the lower jaw and the rest had more than two fracture lines. The most common pattern of fracture was parasymphysis and opposite condyle (19.5%). The second most common type was body and in opposite angle (15.3%).
