Comparison of One Point Fixation Vs Two Point Fixation in the Treatment of Zygomatico Maxillary Complex Fractures.
Background: Zygomatic fractures constitute of 20-40% of all facial fractures, most common among the males between the second and fourth decades of life. The ratio of the incidence between females and male is 1: 4. The zygomatic bone occupying a prominent position in the face determines the facial width. It also acts as a major buttress for the mid face between the maxilla and cranium and it is this prominent location which makes it more prone to injury.
