INTRODUCTION The management of post-traumatic deformity in the midface region poses challenges for the maxillofacial surgeon. Ensuring symmetry after zygomatic osteotomy can be difficult and precise positioning of the osteotomised bony fragments requires careful treatment planning. It may be necessary to use a coronal flap to allow the surgeon to compare the contralateral zygomatic bone to allow symmetrical reduction. The authors present a new technique for the positioning of osteotomised… CONTINUE READING
