A method of Craniofacial suspension of the fractured middle third of facial skeleton through a cranial arch bar


ABSTRACT : Fractures of the middle third of the facial skeleton which associated with the fractured zygomatic process of the frontal bone and or fractured zygomatic arch are happened . And in these cases it was difficult to use frontal or zygomatic suspension for fixation . A technique is described which enables the majority of these fractures to be fixed by maxillary or mandibular suspension to the cranial arch bar implanted inside a plaster of Paris head cap . The plaster head cap can be done in the clinic or in the ward and the only thing you need to do in the theater is reduction and suspension . The benefits of the patient and the hospital are highlighted .
