The length of the mandibular notch was measured from the anterior surface of the head of the mandible to the posterior surface of the coronoid process
Compared to mainland, insular population has a higher coronoid process
that can favor the closure of the jaw in lever (Van Cakenberghe et al., 2002), and a slightly larger maxilla that can be used to chew more sclerotized and/or larger preys.
episcopus (internal 1) share the characters: present transpalatine process (character 34, condition 1); present emargination of the retrodorsal edge of the postorbital process (character 33, condition 1); conspicuous intercotilaris crest (character 30, condition 0); conspicuous coronoid process
(character 29, condition 1); short orbital process of the quadrate (character 20, condition 1); reduced ectethmoid body (character 11, condition 1); zygomatic process about 50% of the distance between its origin and the jugal bar (character 8, condition 1) and short postorbital process (character 5, condition 1).
Hyperplasia of the mandibular coronoid process
(HCP) is a rare condition, which is characterized by cell growth of a histologically normal bone, and whose symptoms increase gradually .
Infected cyst in the coronoid process
. Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol 1992;73:768.
suggested the possible cause for recurrence in the infratemporal region after segmental resection would be due to the retraction of pathologically weakened coronoid process
fragment during temporal dissection .
The findings revealed that an expansile lytic lesion of size 5.2 x 3.4 x 6.5 cm (AP x Trans x CC) with a largely preserved peripheral cortical rim (with few areas of dehiscence), and no matrix calcification was seen arising from the left mandibular ramus involving the coronoid process
but sparing the condyle (superior limit approximately 5 mm from the condyle).
Limited mandibular motion is the result of the seizing up of the coronoid process
to the displacing part of the zygomatic arch inward during opening of the mouth (3,4).
One of the more-common causes of this disability is a bone problem within the elbow joint called fragmented coronoid process
, or FCP.
Mandibular fracture occurs in common location like body (29%), condyle (26%), angle (25%), symphysis (17%), ramus (4%) and coronoid process
.  The management aims at restoration of anatomical form and function with particular care to re-establish the occlusion; can be achieved by both closed and open methods.
The surgeon and engineers must inspect the model to ensure that a sufficient gap has been created between the base of the skull and ramus and that sufficient amount of the coronoid process
has been removed (if necessary).
In the literature, ectopic tooth has been reported to occur in some unusual localization such as the palate, mandibular condyle, coronoid process
, orbita, and nasal cavity.
