S02.40E is a non-billable ICD-10 code for Zygomatic fracture, right side.
Fracture of the zygomatic bone is a common fracture of the facial skeleton; the zygomatic bone forms the most anterolateral projection one on each side of the middle face. The zygomatic bone is attached to the maxilla at the zygomaticomaxillary (ZM) suture and alveolus forming the zygomaticomaxillary buttress.

Fractures of the ZMC or zygomatic arch can often lead to unsightly malar depression, which should be corrected to restore a normal facial contour. ZMC fractures can also cause significant functional issues, including trismus, enophthalmos and/or diplopia, and paresthesias of the infraorbital nerve.
In anatomy, the zygomatic arch, or cheek bone, is a part of the skull formed by the zygomatic process of the temporal bone (a bone extending forward from the side of the skull, over the opening of the ear) and the temporal process of the zygomatic bone (the side of the cheekbone), the two being united by an oblique ...
zygomatic arch, bridge of bone extending from the temporal bone at the side of the head around to the maxilla (upper jawbone) in front and including the zygomatic (cheek) bone as a major portion.
The zygomatic bone articulates with the sphenoid bone, maxilla, frontal bone, and temporal bone to form the lateral wall of the floor of the orbit, part of the temporal and infratemporal fossa, and the prominence of the cheek.
Probably the most common facial fracture is the tripod or zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture, so called because it involves separation of all three major attachments of the zygoma to the rest of the face.
ZMC fractures can be diagnosed based on history of ocular trauma and by radiologic confirmation, most commonly a non contrast maxillofacial CT scan. Other associated facial fractures occur in ~25% of patients who sustain ZMC fractures. Step-offs around the zygomatic arch are strong clinical indicators for ZMC fracture.
The zygomatic bone (zygoma) is an irregularly shaped bone of the skull. It is often referred to as the cheekbone, and it comprises the prominence just below the lateral side of the orbit.
Following fractures of the nasal bone, zygomatic fractures are the second most common fractures of the face and predominantly occur in males during their twenties and thirties. The zygomatic bone, in particular the malar eminence, plays an important part in the appearance of our faces.
After the nasal bones, the mandible is the most common site of facial fractures; mandibular fractures often require open reduction.
