Abstract

In a 6-year period, six bilateral and five unilateral compact aluminium oxide ceramic condyle fixed with titanium screws were implanted. During the years following the operation, it was not necessary to remove any ceramic condyle. In only one case (rheumatic polyarthritis) was it necessary to reoperate on the patient because of bilateral reankylosis. Ceramics can be recommended in a wide field application because of the simplicity, uniformity, durability, and good tissue-enduring ability. The danger of postoperative ankylosis occurs only in patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
