Delayed Reduction of Zygomatic Arch Fracture: Effectiveness of the Rowe Zygoma Elevator.
J Craniofac Surg. 2018 Oct; 29(7):e639-e640.JC

Abstract

The zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures are common fractures among the all facial fractures, and the zygomatic arch fracture accounts for approximately 10% of all facial fractures. Various routes (Gillies app, Direct cutaneous app, Bicoronal, intraoral) and devices (Foley's ballon catheter, Rowe zygoma elevator, Langenbach, deschamps needle holder, Bone hook) for a surgical intervention of the zygomatic arch have been introduced. However, no study exists that has described an effective method of surgery for zygomatic arch fractures that have been left untreated for a long period, or for unstable reduction that have not been reduced >1 month after surgery. The authors describe the case of a 53-year-old female patient who was diagnosed an unstable reduction of the zygomatic arch, 6 weeks after undergone open reduction and internal fixation for a zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture. The authors had successful outcome for delayed reduction of a zygomatic arch fracture using a Rowe zygoma elevator. And the authors suggest that the Rowe zygoma elevator is an easy and effective method for delayed reduction of a zygomatic arch fracture.
