Etiology and Pattern of Zygomatic Complex Fractures: PATIENTS AND METHODS

Over a six-year period (January 1997 to January 2003), 134 patients with fractures of the zygomatic complex were retrospectively studied at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Benin City, and the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTH), lie Ife—both in Southern Nigeria. These patients were selected from a pool of 960 patients who sustained maxillofacial fracture during the period under review. Data documented were the patients’ age, sex and etiology of the fracture. Other data recorded were the site of fracture (zygomatic bone or arch), associated maxillofacial injuries, clinical presentation, radiographic findings, treatment, duration of follow-up and complications. Descriptive statistics and statistical analysis for significance were performed with the SPSS version 6.0, Chicago, IL. Statistical testing was done with the Chi-squared test. P values less than 0.05 were regarded as significant. Cialis Jelly
