Abstract

Zygomaticomaxillary fractures account for approximately 25% of all facial fractures. They can be grouped into high-velocity and low-velocity injuries. A complete head and neck examination is critical for accurate clinical diagnosis. A thin-cut axial CT scan with sagittal, coronal, and 3-D reconstruction is important for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. A thorough understanding of bony tetrapod anatomy and fracture mechanics is critical to treatment planning. Treatment options include closed and open reduction with internal fixation. Computer-aided applications can reduce the need for open reduction and improve the accuracy of both closed and open repairs.
