Stuck temporomandibular joint disc

A stuck disc refers to a TMJ disc which does not translate anteriorly out of the mandibular fossa onto the articular eminence, but rather remains (thus "stuck") in the fossa. It is a form of TMJ dysfunction and is typically associated with restricted range of motion.

Treatment is with arthroscopic adhesionectomy.
