AUTHOR(S): Mohd Younis Bhat, Samah Bashir and Irshad Ahmed
ABSTRACT:Among trauma cases, maxillofacial injuries have a very high incidence. Data suggests that the leading causes of maxillofacial fractures in developed countries are falling and insult, on the other hand road traffic accidents is the main reason in case of developing nations. For mandibular or midface fractures, various treatment modalities can be employed. One of them is closed reduction via intermaxillary fixation (IMF).
Materials and Methods: This study was conducted in the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, from 1st July 2020 to 30th September 2021. This study comprised patients of all ages and both. All patients were aged 15-50 years and had a BMI of 18-30 kg/m2. We included only the patients whom undergone 4 weeks of IMF and excluded patients who had any systemic problems such as diabetes, kidney or heart diseases.
Results: A total of 80 patients were included in this study (56 male and 24 female) with an age average of 28 years. In this study, the mean of TC of patients at the start point of the study was 157.6mg/dl which ended up 149. mg/dl after the 4 weeks of IMF period .The HDL of the serum of the patients before the treatment had a mean of 54.1 mg/dl. After the IMF period, the mean decreased about 1.1 mg/dl and reached 53.0. The average of LDL was 86.4 mg/dl, which also decreased during the IMF period about 3.3 mg/dl and reached 83.1 mg/dl.
Conclusion: We could show according to patients lipid indexes treatment with IMF can result in decrease in total cholesterol levels as the diet is restricted.
