Title: Tomographic analysis of the temporomandibular joint in patients with arthritis: a case of disease translation in Yucatan, Mexico.

Abstract:

Computed tomography imaging of the temporomandibular joint was carried out in 22 previously-diagnosed arthritis patients (3 men, 19 women). This descriptive, cross-sectional observational, qualitative study allowed to characterize the type of condylar morphology condition, the space between temporomandibular joint, the erosion of the cortical and osteophytes formation. The joint characteristics found were cortical erosion, osteophytes and decrease of joint space, which reveals, for the first time in the literature, a correlation between arthritis and temporomandibular joint disease.
