Most condylar fractures of the mandible may be treated by closed reduction and appropriate physiotherapy. Some, however, absolutely should be opened and reduced anatomically; with others, good arguments for open reduction may be offered. This article reviews the possible indications for open reduction and presents an approach that conceals the scar.
