Purpose: To describe a modified peri-angular approach to address subcondylar and condylar neck fractures.Materials and Methods: A modified peri-angular incision is used to approach a fractured condyle through the anteroparotid transmasseteric approach.Results: In the authors’ experience, this method provides quick and clean exposure to the fractured condylar base and neck fractures for open reduction and internal fixation.Conclusion: Although the peri-angular approach has been discussed in the literature, the authors’ modi-fication lessens the chance of complications, such as marginal nerve injury and parotid fistula formation,because the nerve is visualized and kept isolated throughout
