Recently, facial traumas are increasing due to expansion of motor vehicles and complexity of social life pattern. The zygoma bone is a prominent part of the midface and prone to be traumatized. Numerous approaches for reduction and fixation of zygomatic fractures have been described. Each reduction method has its advantages and disadvantages. The authors employed the external wire traction with fluoroscopy in cases of non-comminuted zygomatic arch fracture. The advantages of this method are a more accurate reduction under direct vision and takes a very short time. This procedure also can reduce the pain and edema after postoperation and possible under local anesthesia. With such method, we obtained satisfactory results cosmetically and functionally.
