The aim of this study was to determine whether or not the use of the mandibular angle reduction forceps decreases the incidence of post-operative complications. Forty-six patients, who presented with mandibular angle fractures with a displacement or dislocation, were randomly divided into two treatment groups. Both groups underwent an open reduction with a single upper border miniplate and screw fixation. For 23 patients, the mandibular angle reduction forceps was used to aid in fracture reduction, and for 23 patients, the reduction of the fracture was achieved using IMF. The post-reduction radiographs showed that the reduction forceps group had a higher proportion of precise anatomic alignment of fracture than those in the IMF group. In addition, the former group showed a lower rate of post-operative complications, as compared to the latter group. This study found that the use of the mandibular angle reduction forceps is an important factor for decreasing the incidence of post-surgical complication.
