Fractures of the zygomaticomaxillary complex are among the most common and challenging of the facial skeleton. The zygomatic bone is a key component in the formation of the lateral orbit and orbital floor. Malar position and projection are a key determinant in facial symmetry. The following teaching modules will illustrate the principles required for the proper management of the moderately displaced zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture along with a specialized situation when concomitant cranial fracture may hinder traditional repair. It is the goal of the following teaching cases to stimulate discussion among faculty and their trainees to develop a biomechanically sound guide for repair.
