Abstract: BackgroundFor proper recovery from craniofacial fracture, it is necessary to establish guidelines based on trends. This study aimed to analyze the patterns and causes of craniofacial fractures.MethodsThis retrospective study analyzed patients who underwent surgery for craniofacial fractures between 2010 and 2017 at a single center. Several parameters, including time of injury, region and cause of fracture, alcohol intoxication, time from injury to surgery, hospitalization period, and postoperative complication… Show more

“…Zygomatic bone fractures were found in the highest proportion in the 20-29 age group, in accordance with the in vivo 34: 2049-2055 (2020) results from other studies (3,4,9,(13)(14)(15)(16)(17)(18)(19). This is due to the fact that during this period of life, individuals are more socially, culturally, and physically active, making them more exposed to risks factors through their actions (13)(14)(15)(16)(17)(18)(19). Another favoring factor, which cannot be neglected and is specific to this age group, is alcohol consumption (20).…”

“…In contrast, zygomatic bone fractures due to road traffic accidents are predominant in other regions: Saudi Arabia (11,12), Malaysia (23), South Korea (16), India (17), China (4), Iran (19), Nigeria (44), Uganda (45). Road traffic accidents are predominant in developing countries where there are no well-defined traffic rules, such as the obligation of wearing a seatbelt, special equipment for motorcycles or a helmet for bicycles (11,(13)(14)(15)(16)(17)(44)(45)(46)(47). However, road traffic accidents are also predominant in developed countries with a high population density and a great number of vehicles, leading to a statistically higher risk of road traffic accidents (4,16,17,44,45).…”

“…Their causes and frequency vary from region to region [1][2][3][4], and result from the socio-economic status of patients, their education, and cultural and environmental factors, as well as alcohol consumption [5][6][7]. According to the World Health Organization, maxillofacial injuries are most frequently caused by road collisions, violence, or sports injuries [2,4,7]. These may result in injuries to the soft tissues of the face and mouth, the teeth, and fractures of the craniofacial bones [1,3,4].…”
