This technical note stresses the interest of the temporal articular tubercle osteosynthesis in zygomatic bone fractures. An impaction of the zygoma can lead to valgus of the temporal bone's zygomatic process with diastasis in the temporal articular tubercle. If the frontal and maxillary processes are comminuted, osteosynthesis of the temporal articular tubercle allows recovering the initial projection of the zygomatic bone. The adequate alignment of the sphenozygomatic suture is also reliable for an anatomical reduction of the fracture.
