This study aims to provide patient characteristics and short-term clinical outcomes of Le Fort fractures. Using the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database from 2016 to 2019, cases involving Le Fort fractures on initial encounters were reviewed. 130 cases from 3293 facial fractures were identified. 70 cases were diagnosed with type I, 41 with type II, and 19 with type III. The male-to-female ratio was 4.9:1. Compared to geriatric patients (>65 years old), Le Fort fractures were more common among patients between the ages of 18 and 65 (P <.003). 5.4% of patients had in-hospital complications, including sepsis, superficial-deep incisional surgical site infection, and wound disruption. Two patients (1.5%) were readmitted, while three (2.3%) underwent reoperation. Type I fractures in adult males are the most common presentation. Overall complication rates for surgical repairs are low.
