“…20 In this study, we observed the highest percentage of fracture occurred in the mid-face, followed by a lower third of the face. The higher prevalence of the midface fracture is also reported in studies 5,11 in contrast to other studies where more incidence of fracture in lower facial third is reported. 2,4,13,16 This higher prevalence of the midfacial injury may be attributed to the wider face and prominent malar bone of Asian people.…”
