Parestesi pada fraktur kompleks zigomatikomaksilaris Paresthesia in zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures
Head trauma cases can involve os.zygoma and maxilla. Injury to the nerves is one of the complications that can beencountered as a result of the fracture fragments shift. This paper reported one case of n.infraorbitalis paresthesiafollowing zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture. A 30 years old man was referred to the Department of Oral Surgery,Dr.Sardjito Hospital with a history of traffic accident two weeks before admission. The patient complained of rightcheek area feels numbness, bite changed and there was a protrusion of bone under his right eye. Clinical examinationfound paresthesias of right n.infraorbitalis, left posterior open bite, and bone displace at right infraorbital rim. At theWater's x-ray and 3D CT scan visualized fractures involving the right maxillary and infraorbital rim. Open reductioninternal fixation (ORIF) zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture, with miniplate supported by arch bar as a device toachieve individually normal occlusions, was performed under general anesthesia. Postoperative follow up indicateparesthesia symptoms gradually decreased and totally recover within 5 months. Prognosis for this case was bonam. Itwas concluded that ORIF with miniplate, combined with mounting arch bar can support paresthesia correction due tothe displacing of fracture fragment zygomaticomaxillary complex.
