Zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures are extremely common in patients with facial trauma, due to the prominent position of the zygoma on the face.

1–3 Displaced ZMC fractures often require prompt surgical reduction at all articulation points to restore facial symmetry and prevent the development of enophthalmos.

Purpose: To improve the clinical evaluation of the symmetry of the zygomatic complex (ZMC), the authors developed a new method to measure the eminence and width of the ZMC using 3-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT).

The zygomatic bone is one of the most frequently fractured craniofacial bones because of its protruding position and therefore has a substantial effect on the esthetic appearance. 1, 2 The role of the zygomatic prominence has been reported to be essential for function and facial symmetry in prior studies.3, 4, 5 Although esthetic appearance is clearly affected by overlying soft tissues, in Cited by: 1.

The researchers establish a new classification system for zygomatic fractures based on computed tomography and mechanism of injury, which could be used to inform treatment options.

Patients treated for isolated zygomatic fracture at the Keio University Hospital between and were recruited for. - conventional tomography (A. Vallebona) - theoretical basis of CT (A.

The term “computed tomography”, or CT, refers to a computerized x-ray imaging procedure in which a narrow beam of x-rays is aimed at a patient and quickly rotated around the body, producing signals that are processed by the machine’s computer to generate cross-sectional images—or “slices”—of the body.

ABSTRACT. Considering the potential of tridimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) as a predictor of real bone dimensions, nine dried human skulls with maxillary edentulism were evaluated using images obtained by 3D-CT, prior to the installation of zygomatic implants, in.

Computed tomography definition is - radiography in which a three-dimensional image of a body structure is constructed by computer from a series of plane cross-sectional images made along an axis —called also computed axial tomography, computerized axial tomography, computerized tomography.

The purpose of this study was to analyze the use of midline references and landmarks to assess the position of the zygomatic complex relative to the cranial base, and to test the reliability of.

Ultrasonography vs computed tomography in imaging of zygomatic complex fractures zygomatic complex constitutes 45% of all midface fundus, globe position and eyeball mobility. Results. The heads, excluding the mandibles, were scanned by micro-computed tomography.

The topographic deviation of the bony surface was quantitatively assessed by a wire mesh fitting analysis. The actual displacement and significant differences were mapped and visualized in each x - y - and z -axis on the 3D craniofacial image. The recent widespread use of three-dimensional computed tomography (3D CT) made it easier to verify the position and displacement of the zygomatic body in vivo.

Consequently, less aggressive methods to obtain stability were developed [7,8].

• Zygomatic fractures can cause limitation of mandibular motion, especially when fractures are depressed. • Masseter muscle arises from zygomatic arch. • Coronoid process is located underneath the zygomatic arch.

• Zygomatic complex fractures: • ZMC fracture, trimalar fracture, malar eminence fracture. Computed tomography scanners can be divided into 2 different modalities: traditional computed axial tomography (also called fan beam CT) and digital volume tomography (also called cone beam CT).

Fan beam scanners use a collimator to generate a fan-shaped beam, providing “slices” that can be evaluated in 2 dimensions or combined to generate.

The zygomatic complex consists of zygomatic bone and parts of maxilla, frontal, temporal and sphenoid bone 4. Zygomatic complex fracture is the second most common fracture of facial region just behind isolated nasal fractures. Forty-five percent of trauma to the midface constitutes fractures of the zygomatic complex (3).

A 3-dimensional analysis of head and neck anatomy allows practitioners to plan appropriately, operate with confidence, and assess results post-operatively.

CBCT imaging has clear indications and limitations. Traditional facial radiographs have limited usefulness in the diagnosis of zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures. The submental-vertex view offers excellent resolution of the zygomatic arches; however, the Townes, anteroposterior.

Download figure: Standard image The introduction of CT revolutionised imaging in that it provided high resolution tomographic imaging (the production of images that represent slices of tissues). This also meant that the visualisation of anatomy presented challenges since most imaging previously had been projection based leading to overlying tissues appearing coincident on the final image.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare ultrasonography with CT scan and submentovertex films in the visualization of zygomatic arch fractures. Methods: 17 patients, 10 men and 7 women, with suspected fracture of the zygomatic arch were data from CT and plain films were compared with the ultrasonographic findings (Aloka (Tokyo, Japan) ultrasound equipment with a   Computed Tomography CT is the gold standard for evaluation of zygomatic Axial and coronal images are define fracture patterns, degree of displacement, and comminution 7.

Purpose: This study introduces a novel protocol for the placement of zygomatic implants utilizing presurgical planning with 3-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT)/cone-beam (CB)CT diagnostic technologies and advanced 3D printing through the development of a specific surgical als and Methods: The protocol relied on large field of view CT/CBCT for an accurate.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to establish and verify an examination protocol using CT to estimate the length of zygomatic implants, thus rendering the surgical process safer and more predictable, and exposing the patient to a minimal level of radiation.

Methods: Paracoronal CT scan was carried out on ten dry human crania (n = 20) and the zygomatic implant sites were measured (L CT. Computed tomography (CT) scanning revealed that the grafted fragments remained in place postoperatively.

[ 29 ] A study by van Hout et al of unilateral zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures indicated that in cases of comminuted fractures, treatment outcomes were worse than those for either incomplete or tetrapod fractures.

The most common zygomatico-maxillary complex (ZMC) fracture pattern involves fracture of the frontozygomatic suture (lateral orbital rim), the zygomatic arch, the lateral buttress (zygomatico-maxillary buttress), and the inferior orbital rim (Cummings ).The fractures through the lateral buttress and the inferior orbital rim are commonly connected by an anterior maxillary wall fracture.

Computed tomography is commonly used to evaluate patients with blunt facial trauma. With the high definition of the current scanners, even small fractures of the facial skeleton can be visualized.

In complex midface injuries, it can be difficult for the radiologist to know which fractures are important to point out to the surgeon. Introduction Intraoperative mobile Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) trends to develop for the management of complex facial fractures.

It allows a real-time imaging and surgical navigation. The TMJ structures can be viewed using panoramic and transcranial radiographs, conventional linear or complex motion tomography, computed tomography (CT), MRI and arthrography (5,6). Plain and panoramic radiographs, are good screening tools for gross bony changes.

Fractures of the orbit may be seen in different scenarios of direct and indirect trauma to the globe, orbital, facial, or cranial bones. The most common presentation of orbital fractures is associated with zygomatic complex fractures (i.e., involving the .Mandibular fracture, also known as fracture of the jaw, is a break through the mandibular about 60% of cases the break occurs in two places.

It may result in a decreased ability to fully open the mouth. Often the teeth will not feel properly aligned or there may be bleeding of the gums. Mandibular fractures occur most commonly among males in their 30s.
