Mandibular Condyle Fractures: 
Describing the fracture appropriately is important because there are different treatment implications. With a medial pole shear the height of the ramus/condyle complex is maintained as is at least some of the articular surface; with a subcondylar fracture the mandible is “shortened” on the affected side. In both cases the fracture sites are enveloped in a well vascularized soft tissue envelope and usually amenable to closed management, however when the ramus/condyle height is maintained, closed management is even more straightforward.
