Abstract

The objective of this clinical study was to determine the relationship between condylar translation on plain tomographic radiographs and internal derangements assessed by a clinical and arthrographic evaluation. One hundred two joints in sixty-two patients were evaluated by linear tomography in closed versus opened positions and classified according to the type of internal derangement depicted by arthrotomography in sixty-two cases. A decrease in condylar translation was noted in patients diagnosed as having meniscus displacement without reduction. Patients who had meniscus displacement with reduction (painful clicking) were found to have hypermobility of the condyle on the symptomatic side. Meniscus displacement without reduction, which appears to be an advanced stage of internal derangement, is a serious sequela leading to marked restriction of condylar motion.
