BASSI, Ana Paula Farnezi et al. Radiographic and Clinical Evaluations of the Zygomatico-maxillary Complex Fractures Treated by 2.0 Miniplates System. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1, pp.77-83. ISSN 0718-381X.

The zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) is the second highly incidental of facial fractures. According to the anatomical complexity, there are many reports in the literature about this trauma, mainly related to treatment for these fractures. With the purpose of evaluating clinically and radiographically the stability of unilateral zygomatic fractures treated by surgical reduction and fixed in two points by stable internal fixation, this research was proposed. Twenty patients with zygomatic fractures were evaluated and compared with twenty nonfractured patients. The results showed that there were no statistically significant differences among the obtained data, perimeter and area, of the treated and contra-lateral sides of the experimental group. When compared to the control group the differences were not statistically significant. We also performed a comparison of the distance between the nasal bone and zygomatic prominence in all groups the results were also satisfactory.

Palabras clave : zygomaticomaxillary fractures; stable fixation internal; facial injuries.
