Abstract

The nasal and zygoma bone are parts of frequently fracturing of facial bones because of anatomically protrusion. Of facial bone fractures, nasal bone is at the high level of incidence rate. But zygoma fracture that anatomical characteristics increase the incidence rate also is occupied considerable part of the facial bone fracture. The outline of face is decided by form of underlying skeletal structure, of that, zygoma plays an important role in. Zygoma is closely attached to surrounding anatomic structure as orbit, maxillary sinus. Aesthetic and functional disturbance are developed by zygoma fracture from trauma, complications, as facial asymmetry, trismus, sensory disturbance, epistaxis, periorbital hemorrhage, diplopia etc, are developed. The patterns of complications following displacement of fractured fragment of zygoma by trauma are slightly different.
