Abstract

Minimally invasive oral and maxillofacial surgery is now being developed for virtually all minor and major oral and maxillofacial surgeries, and developments are now focused on facial trauma surgery. This article assesses the feasibility of reducing isolated zygomatic arch fractures using the intraoral lateral coronoid approach. The procedure is cost-effective and timesaving, as it can be performed under local anesthesia in an emergency department or similar clinical setting and does not need postoperative hospitalization if no other comorbidities are present.
