The aim of this article is to present our experience treating fractures of the condylar base with a modification of the high submandibular approach (HSA). Between June 2012 and April 2015, 44 fractures of the condylar base were treated in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the Medical Hospital of Graz using the modified HSA. We did not observe any damage (even transient) to the facial nerve or any complication related to violation of the parotid capsule (such as a salivary fistula, Frey syndrome, or a sialocele). This approach provides good access to the condylar base, ensuring easier internal fixation, excellent protection of the facial nerve and parotid gland, and good cosmetic results.
