Özet

For placement of a temporomandibular joint prosthesis, preauricular and retromandibular approaches are used. The main complication of the retromandibular approach is marginal mandibular nerve damage. In this technical study, the retromandibular subparotideomasseteric fascial approach is introduced as an alternative to avoid the complications of the conventional retromandibular approach.
