In the case of mandibular angle fractures, a two miniplate fixation technique in which one plate is applied ventral to the oblique line and a second plate at the inferior border of the buccal cortex was used to stabilize the fracture. In this paper, the stability of the two miniplate fixation technique was tested in a three-dimensional in vitro model. The results of this study showed that in cases of angle fractures this fixation technique provides stable fixation under functional loading.
