Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has enabled the accomplishment of a more effective diagnostics of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). The sample included 40 patients with clinical symptoms of disc displacement (DD) of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and 25 subjects included in our study were asymptomatic. DD were diagnosed by clinical examinations which were subsequently confirmed by MRI. DD was found in 18% of the TMJs of the asymptomatic patients. The highest prevalence of total DD without reduction was found in 44.1% of the patients' joints subsequently followed by total DD with reduction comprising 34.9% of the TMJs and by partial DD with reduction comprising 21% of the TMJs. This study may help us clarify the complicated relationship which exists between the radiographic and clinical findings of TMJ disorders.

STUDIJA O MORFOLOGIJI ČELJUSNOG ZGLOBA POMOĆU MAGNETSKE REZONANCIJE ----- Magnetska rezonancija omogućila je veću učinkovitost dijagnostike specifičnih poremećaja čeljusnog zgloba. U našem istraživanju je sudjelovalo 40 pacijenata s kliničkim dijagnozama pomaka zglobne pločice, te 25 asimptomatskih osoba. Nalazom magnetske rezonancije potvrđen je kliničkim pregledom utvrđen pomak zglobne pločice. Utvrđen je pomak zglobne pločice kod 18% zglobova asimptomatskih ispitanika. Kod pacijenata s pomakom zglobne pločice najveća učestalost potpunog pomaka pločice bez repozicije je u 44,1% zglobova, potpunog pomaka pločice s repozicijom u 34,9% zglobova te djelomičnog pomaka zglobne pločice s repozicijom u 21% zglobova. Ovo istraživanje pomaže boljem objašnjenju povezanosti radioloških i kliničkih znakova artrogenih poremećaja čeljusnog zgloba.
