distance between the frontozygomatic suture and the base of the metoptic canal,
The average distances from the frontozygomatic suture, superior aspect of the superior orbital fissure, Whitnall's tubercle, superior aspect of the optic canal, and superior aspect of the supraorbital notch to the metoptic canal were 29.51 [+ or -] 11.20, 15.80 [+ or -] 4.26, 22.85 [+ or -] 9.95, 8.90 [+ or -] 2.74, and 40.62 [+ or -] 8.87 mm in the right side, respectively.
In the later, the approach is either done intraorally or extra orally depending upon the type and site of fracture and fixation technique.4 The most popular approach for buttress fixation is Keen's approach and for frontozygomatic suture
area is lateral eyebrow approach.
In the current study, epidermoid cysts had a comparable behavior, where 2 cases were related to frontozygomatic suture with hourglass configuration, while the rest of cases were either juxtasutural or confined to soft tissue.
Keene and coworkers stated that epidermoid cysts are more commonly located laterally in the diploe of the skull, fourth ventricle, and cerebellopontine angle in comparison to dermoid cysts that frequently appear near the midline or superotemporal site where they are related to the frontozygomatic suture [1,11].
Its center is approximately 4.0 cm superior to the zygomatic arch and 3.0-3.5 cm posterior to the frontozygomatic suture. (6)
PF: distance from the center of the pterion to the anterior aspect of the frontozygomatic suture.
In this study, the parameters studied were distance between the SOF or SON and the nasal midline, distance between the SOF or SON and the frontozygomatic suture, (Fig.
"1" indicates the distance from supraorbital notch/foramen to nasal midline and "2" indicates the distance from the supraorbital notch/foramen to frontozygomatic suture.
Further, inferior border of the frontal lobe is represented by an oblique line drawn from the frontozygomatic suture
to the pterion (Williams et al.).
Multipoint fixation at the frontozygomatic suture
with microplate: A technical note.
In patients with single processes fracture, the zygomatic buttress was most commonly involved accounting 23.5% followed by infra orbital rim 3% and frontozygomatic suture
