Abstract
The orbitozygomatic area occupies a key anatomic position in midface, is prone to

injury, and plays a prominent role in facial aesthetics. So the facial appearance orbital

shape can be altered by complications of orbitozygomatic fractures. Most possible initial

complications include blindness, hyphema, retinal detatchment, and paralysis or

entrapment of extraocular muscles. Long term sequelaes include infraorbital nerve

dysfunction, loss of malar projection, enophthalmos, and dystopia. Accurate anatomic

reduction and rigid fixation is essential for management of orbitozygomatic fractures to

minumize those late sequelaes. Conventional fixation devices to fix displaced fracture of

facial bone are interosseous wire and miniplate. But interosseous wirings are unstable

for primary bone healing and time consuming Miniplates have great deal in rigid

fixation but their profile and palpability are main complaints in many patients, especially

in orbital rim area, In this article, we reviewed the 30 cases of zygomamaxilla complex

fractures with orbital rim fracture fixed with microplates, and discussed the stability of

microplate and superiorities in final aesthetic result. The of microplates in these area

permits enough stability of fracture segment with ease of procedures and superiorities in

final results without palpability.
