Abstract

Sagittal fractures of the maxilla and palate are infrequent and can demonstrate significant instability with conventional methods of treatment. They require that rigid, horizontal stability of the dentition be obtained, as well as restoration of midface projection and height. The most effective and precise management has utilized a combination of open reduction and internal fixation at the piriform aperture and zygomatic buttress and posterior palate, use of a maxillary arch bar as a tension band, and utilization of a palatal splint.
