A series of 168 maxillo facial fractures treated over a 24 month period was reviewed to show cause and location. The results revealed a high incidence of condylar and symphysis fractures of the mandible, and a frequent occurrence of falls as an etiological factor. Principles of management and the use of general versus local anesthesia are discussed.
