The range of mandibular movements has been correlated with arthrographic findings of the temporomandibular joint in 205 patients. Abnormalities of meniscus position and function have been found to influence mandibular movements in characteristic patterns. However, altered mandibular movements alone are insufficient for a definitive clinical diagnosis of the specific type of internal derangement of the temporomandibular joint.
