Figure 7: (Case 4) (a-c) Fibreoptic assisted nasoendotracheal intubation. (d-j) Bilateral temporomandibular joint ankylosis release by osteoarthrectomy and temporalis muscle pedicled flap placement. (k and l) Vertical distractors placed bilaterally at angle regions, oriented parallel to the posterior border of the ramii, to achieve increase in vertical ramal height. (m-o) Radiographs showing the vertical distractors in situ, and vertical elongation of ramii in progress as evidenced by the partially extended distraction cylinders
