Total prosthetic replacement of the temporomandibular joint: a rapid evidence assessment and economic analysis

This health technology assessment report has been produced in response to a request from Alberta Health (AH) as part of the Alberta Health Technologies Decision Process (AHTDP) to perform an evaluation of the scientific evidence on the safety and effectiveness of TMJ Concepts® and Biomet® Microfixation TMJ prostheses for adults who are indicated for total TMJ replacement.

The objectives for the economic analysis are to determine the cost effectiveness of total TMJ replacement surgery compared to no surgical intervention and to determine the budget impact of total TMJ replacement.
