Treatment of habitual dislocation of the temporomandibular joint with subsynovial injection of sclerosant through arthroscope.

Abstract

Five patients with habitual dislocation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), failing in conservative therapy, were treated with subsynovial injections of sclerosant through an arthroscope, and this treatment was proved to be effective over the short-term. Compared with operation, this method is easily performed and produces less damage and no significant sequelae, but the long-term effects have yet to be observed.
