Abstract :

Zygoma is a major buttress of the midfacial skeleton, which is frequently injured because of its prominent location. Despite the high frequency of the zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures, there is no consensus among facial reconstructive surgeons regarding the best surgical management; thus, surgical choise for ZMC fractures is still challenging. 9 patients were treated with open reduction and internal fixation using two point fixation technique at frontozygomatic suture and zygomaticomaxillary buttress. Miniplate for fixation of fractured fragments are very useful. However, titanium plates, as they are easily adaptable. Two point fixation modality for displaced ZMC fractures is effective method in fixation and prevents postreduction rotation with significant lower cost.
