Abstract

A perspective study of role of lateral tongue flap operation in cases with trismus due to oral submucous fibrosis has been carried out. This study includes pre and post-operative evaluation of 21 cases. The results of this procedure have been discussed. The findings of the present study can be summarised as follows :
  1. 1.

    In all 21 cases have been treated with follow-up of maximum 3 years and minimum 2 months.

     
  2. 2.

    Two types of lateral tongue flaps i.e. anteriorly based and posteriorly based are tried.

     
  3. 3.

    The relief of trisums in all cases was satisfactory.
