We have introduced a less invasive, simple, and effective method for zygomatic fractures using percutaneous reduction with a Steinmann pin (S-pin) and temporary external suspension with a Kirschner wire (K-wire).For 2 years, 51 patients underwent first percutaneous reductions and then fixations, which is a method that we developed. After the S-pin no. 1 was percutaneously inserted at the most prominent point of the zygoma, closed reduction was first attempted using lever movement and temporary… CONTINUE READING
