Abstract

Background and aim:researcher aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of Resorbable Plates and Titanium Plates treatments in ZMC fractures. Due to the high aesthetic importance of ZMC fractures and also due to the characteristics of zygoma, this study increases the importance of this study.Therefore the aim of present study was Compare Resorbable Plates with Titanium Plates for the Fixation of Zygomatic Fractures, Taking into Account Postoperative Complications.

Method: Databases of PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, EBSCO and Embase were searched for systematic literature between 2010 to August 2021.  For Data extraction, two reviewers blind and independently extracted data from abstract and full text of studies that included.95% confidence interval for odds ratio with fixed effect model and Mantel-Haenszel method were calculated. To deal with potential heterogeneity, random effects were used and I2 showed heterogeneity. Meta-analysis was performed using Stata/MP v.16 software (The fastest version of Stata).

Result: In the initial review, duplicate studies were eliminated and abstracts of 155 studies were reviewed, the full text of 21studies was reviewed by two authors, finally, eight studies were selected.  Odds ratio of Plate removal between Resorbable and titanium group was -1.21 (OR, -1.21 95% CI -3.27, 0.84). Odds ratio of chance of dehiscencebetween Resorbable and titanium group was 0.08 (OR, 0.08 95% CI 0.02, 0.1).

Conclusion: Based on the findings of the present meta-analysis, no significant differences were observed among Postoperative Complications (occurrence of infection, diplopia, or paresthesia) between Resorbable Plates and Titanium Plates for the Fixation of Zygomatic Fractures.
