Carls, F R; Engelke, W; Locher, M C; Sailer, H F (1996). Complications following arthroscopy of the temporomandibular joint: analysis covering a 10-year period (451 arthroscopies). Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, 21(1):12-15.

Abstract

451 arthroscopies of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) have been performed on 373 patients during 10 years of clinical experience. The complication rate was low (1.77%). Most complications were transient, consisting mainly of temporary deficits of the 5th and 7th cranial nerves. No patient required arthrotomy because of complications, but one patient had to undergo angiography and embolization of a traumatic aneurysm of the superficial temporal artery secondary to arthroscopy.
