Abstract

Introduction: Since there are no precise reports about maxillofacial fractures in Mashhad, we conducted a study to assess the pattern of maxillofacial fractures at Shahid Kamyab Centre during 17 months in Mashhad. Materials & Methods: In this cross sectional study, 495 patients of Mashhad Shahid Kamyab trauma center with maxillofacial trauma during 17 months were evaluated. Age, sex, site of fracture, etiology and treatment were recorded by observation and questions. Data were by analyzed with software SPSS 11.5. Result: Eighty point two percent of all 495 patients were male and 20 were female. The most frequent age was 21-30 years and the most frequent causes of maxillofacial fractures were motor vehicle accidents (75.4) and assaults (15.2). The average number of fractures was 1.8 and the most frequent site of fractures were mandible (27.3) and zygoma (20.9). Open reduction had been done for 2.6 of the cases.
