Zygomatic bone is relatively small but structurally significant. It transmits the pressure applied to zygomatic region to three different areas the maxilla, the frontal, and the temporal bone. With the temporal bone it forms the arch. This is significant in maintaining the facial contour. Fracture of arch accounts for 5% of total facial fractures leads to insight appearance. The first description of a surgical reduction of a zygoma fracture by Duverney in 1751. May approaches have been tried, and transoral approach was introduced by Keen, later modified by Goldthwaite and Quinn.
