Intermaxillary Fixation Techniques An EACMFS workbook on keying occlusion and restoring bony anatomy by intermaxillary fixation techniques. Editors. José M . Objective: Various techniques have been employed from time to time to achieve maxillomamdibular fixation. Although arch bars provide an. The utilization and technique of placement for Erich arch bars, Ivy loops, Ernst fixation;. Mandible fracture;. Intermaxillary fixation;. Ivy loops;. Ernst ligatures.
Inter-maxillary fixation IMF is an important contrivance in the treatment of maxillofacial fractures, and is usually applied by wiring together the fixed upper and lower arch bars techniquds Ivy eyelet [ 12 ]. Intermaxillary fixation with IMF screws is more efficacious compared to Erich arch bars in the treatment of mandibular fractures.
A New Simplified Technique for Intermaxillary Fixation by Loop-Designed Wire
Results of intraoral cortical bone screw fixation technique for mandibular fractures. Once all six wires are passed, then the upper and lower wire ends are twisted together to achieve IMF Fig. The disadvantage of this technique is that removal of the wires after completion of procedure is very difficult, as we cannot hold the wires for retrieval.

Loop of the wire can be held for easy and yechniques removal of wires. Then the wire is wound around the tip of the instrument four of five times.

Spiral Intermaxillary Fixation
The final positioning of spiral wires in maxilla. So, we have modified the technique by using loop wire.
This technique makes use of six evenly spaced spiraled wires three in each maxilla and mandible. The pearl steel wire: Received Nov 10; Accepted Mar However the introduction of intermaxillary fixation screws IMF has eliminated many of these issues of arch bars. Arthur Techniaues, Berardo N. Various techniques have been employed from time to time to achieve maxillomamdibular fixation. As less tcehniques of wires is used in this technique, hence the incidence of needle stick injury and gingival trauma also decreases as compared with arch bars.
