Does Intraoperative Computed Tomography Improve the Outcome in Zygomatico-Orbital Complex Fracture Reduction?

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2021 Jun 16;20(2):189-200. Epub 2020 Jul 16.

Department of Neurosurgery, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, 160012 India.

Purpose: Zygomatico-orbital (ZMO) fractures pose considerable difficulty in intraoperative assessment during open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), and this can be attributed to its three-dimensional complex anatomy and articulations. Recent advancements in the form of intraoperative imaging and navigation have led to an adequate assessment and correct reduction of these fractures minimizing chances of any revision surgery. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the advantage of intraoperative computerized tomography (CT) scan in the management of ZMO/isolated orbital complex fracture and further to develop a protocol for managing such fractures.

Orbital fractures may be accompanied with severe damage of the eye bulb and other intraorbital tissues. Early clinical findings can be very mild, therefore it is vital to actively seek not only for any damage done to the soft tissues of the orbit, but also for extraorbital complications such as liquorrhea or meningitis. We report a relatively rare case of blow-in fracture of orbital roof in eleven years old boy. Read More

Surgical Decompression of the Orbit due to Frontal Bone and Roof of the Orbit Fractures - A Case Report.

Ann Maxillofac Surg 2020 Jul-Dec;10(2):495-500. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

School of Dentistry, University Center of Patos de Minas, Patos de Minas, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Trauma in the face region has a very varied etiology and can be associated with several important structures. Isolated fractures in the orbit region correspond to about 4 to 16% of all facial fractures and this incidence increases to 30 to 55% if we take into account fractures that expand to extraorbital regions. The present clinical report aims to describe the case of a male patient, 21-years-old, victim of a motorcycle accident with facial trauma and traumatic brain injury due to frontal collision.

Br J Neurosurg 2021 Feb 28:1-5. Epub 2021 Feb 28.

Department of Neurosurgery and Brain Repair, University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, Tampa, FL, USA.

Purpose: Intraorbital encephalocele (OMEC) is a rare entity in adults, usually secondary to an orbital pathology or prior trauma, in particular orbital roof fractures. Treatment of the OMEC is warranted to alleviate the pulsating exophthalmos and prevent potential visual decline. OMEC and orbital roof fractures have been predominantly treated via a craniotomy with a reconstruction of the orbital roof using various implants. Read More

Department of Radiology, Dankook University Hospital, Dankook University College of Medicine, Cheonan, Republic of Korea,

Introduction: Traumatic oculomotor nerve injury is usually caused by severe head trauma and is generally associated with other neurological deficits such as basilar skull fracture, orbital injury, or subarachnoid hemorrhage. Isolated traumatic oculomotor nerve injury after minor head trauma and its MRI findings are rarely reported.

Case Presentation: We report a case of a 13-year-old girl with mydriasis, limited inferior and medial movement of the left eyeball, and left ptosis after a mild bump of the left forehead and eye into an electricity pole. Read More

Role of Plain Radiographs in Assessing Appropriate Placement of Orbital Implants for Repair of Floor Fractures.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2020 Sep 8;13(3):192-197. Epub 2020 Apr 8.

Department of Surgery, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

Intraoperative imaging is becoming increasingly common in repair of facial fractures. Many institutions do not have access to intraoperative advanced 3D imaging but have the capability of obtaining plain radiographs intraoperatively. At institutions where advanced 3D imaging is available, scout radiographs are usually obtained prior to a complete scan. Read More

Clinical Criteria for Selective Exploration of Orbital Floor in Zygomaticomaxillary Complex Fractures.

Craniomaxillofac Trauma Reconstr 2020 Sep 1;13(3):180-185. Epub 2020 May 1.

Department of Public Health Dentistry, SDM College of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara University, Dharwad, Karnataka, India.

Purpose: Exposing the orbital floor requires a surgical procedure that has its own challenges. Despite the meticulous clinical examination followed by sophisticated imaging modalities, orbital floor defects associated with zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures may evade diagnosis and appropriate management. If surgeons can decide about the need for orbital floor exploration in patients with ZMC fracture, the chance of a postoperative eyelid deformity can be prevented. Read More

Secondary Reconstruction of the Zygomaticomaxillary Complex.

Semin Plast Surg 2020 Nov 24;34(4):254-259. Epub 2020 Dec 24.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial, College of Dentistry, Texas A&M Health Science Center, Dallas, Texas.

Zygomaticomaxillary (ZMC) fractures are the second most common facial fractures after nasal bone fractures. The zygoma, with its location and multiple points of articulations, lends itself to both facial structure and esthetics. Secondary ZMC deformities are complications of inadequate primary correction, delayed repair, or lack of repair. Read More

Low-Cost, Three-Dimensionally-Printed, Anatomical Models for Optimization of Orbital Wall Reconstruction.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 01;147(1):162-166

From the Departments of Plastic Surgery and Radiology, University of Pittsburgh; the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Massachusetts Medical School-Baystate, Baystate Medical Center; and the Division of Otolaryngology, Yale School of Medicine.

Background: Orbital blowout fracture reconstruction often requires an implant, which must be shaped at the time of surgical intervention. This process is time-consuming and requires multiple placement trials, possibly risking complications. Three-dimensional printing technology has enabled health care facilities to generate custom anatomical models to which implants can be molded to precisely match orbital anatomy. Read More

Interrelation between facial soft tissue lessions, underlying fracture patterns and treatment of zygomatic bone trauma: a 10 year retrospective study.

Head Face Med 2020 Nov 26;16(1):30. Epub 2020 Nov 26.

Discipline of Oral Surgery, 2nd Department of Dental Medicine, "Victor Babeş" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 2 Eftimie Murgu Sq., 300041, Timisoara, Romania.

Background: The pattern of zygomatic bone fractures varies in the literature, their features being frequently masked by the presence of associated soft tissue lesions. In this context the clinical diagnosis and the therapeutic indications can be difficult. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical features of zygomatic bone fractures and their interrelation with concomitant overlying soft tissue injuries, as well as to assess the type of treatment methods applied depending on the fracture pattern and the results achieved depending on the incidence rate of postoperative complications.

Finite Element Analysis of 2- and 3-Point Internal Fixation Methods for the Treatment of Zygomaticomaxillary Complex Fracture.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Nov/Dec;31(8):2208-2212

Department of Ophthalmology, The Second Hospital of Dalian Medical University.

Open reduction followed by internal fixation (ORIF) has been regarded as the most effective technique for surgical repair of zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures. However, the ideal internal fixation method to achieve stable reduction remains controversial. This research aims to assess and compare the stability of the 2- and 3-point screw-plate fixation methods using finite element method (FEM). Read More

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Oct 12. Epub 2020 Oct 12.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Department of Biomedical Informatics, Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN.

Introduction: Radiographic assessment of facial fractures with computed tomography (CT) scanning has become standard of care. As imaging resolution has improved, findings such as herniation of extraocular muscles (EOM) have become a means of diagnosing conditions like orbital entrapment. However, the sensitivity and specificity of these findings has not been well-studied. Read More
