When the parameters associated with anterior cruciate ligament injury were included in the analysis, there was an independent association between anterior cruciate ligament and contusion of lateral femoral condyle, medial femoral condyle, and lateral tibial plateau (Table 4).

The degradation occurring in the condyle due to friction increases the level of change occurring in the medial plicae.
(11) In our case, the etiological factor leading to the development of DA of the ICA was facial trauma presenting as mandibular condyle and Le Fort I maxillary fractures, which is in line with published literature.
When the ACL is torn, anterior translation of the tibia leads to abnormal contact of the lateral femoral condyle and lateral tibial plateau.
Plain X-rays may show a radiolucent lesion with a surrounding sclerotic halo, together with subtle flattening of the involved femoral condyle. In advanced cases with significant subchondral collapse, secondary degenerative changes may be evident along with loss of joint space, sclerosis in the MT, and osteophyte formation.
11 - 15), that reaches about 50% of the distance from the occipital condyle and the pes pterygoidei in C.
Mandibular injuries are not uncommon and a number of factors influence the pattern of injury including age, gender, occupation, socio-economic status and direction and impact of force.1 Condylar fractures are the most common among mandibular fractures constituting up to 29-56%.2 Higher incidence of condylar fracture is due to different biomechanical factors such as variation in bone density and different anatomical structures which result in weakening of certain areas.3,4 Impact forces are indirectly transmitted and directed towards condyle because of the joint between highly rigid ramus of mandible and less rigid condyle.
The role of discal ligaments is to prevent divergence of the disc and condyle head; hence, discal ligaments were modeled through fixing the distance between some nodes on the disc and condyle head.
The aim of the study was to determine, in retrospective, which of the methods of bite registration gives a better guarantee to guide the mandibular condyle into a centric position, in the mandibular fossa.
Computed tomography (CT) imaging showed vasogenic edema in the left temporal lobe secondary to intracranial displacement of the left mandibular condyle through a 1.3 x 0.7 cm defect of the glenoid fossa of the temporal bone.
