The last one presented a nasal and oroantral communication by postmaxillectomy sequelae. All patients were treated with zygomatic implants.

In two patients quad zygomatic implants technique was used and in the other two zygomatic implants associated to standard implants were performed. The patients were followed up for a period of 5 years.
