Endoscopic Assisted Combined Transantral and Subciliary Approach in Treatment of Orbital Floor Fracture: A Case Report
- 37 Downloads
Management of orbital floor fracture remains the most debated topic in maxillofacial field. There are many approaches to reconstruct orbital floor fractures and restore orbital position and function, but many have the drawback of incomplete visualization, especially of the posterior part of the orbit. Pain, diplopia and enophthalmos are the most common presenting symptoms in patients who sustained orbital blow out fracture. The main aim in treating orbital fracture is to reduce the prolapsed orbital tissue and reconstruct the floor which will improve diplopia and enophthalmos. As minimally invasive surgical techniques are gaining popularity, it is possible to reconstruct the orbital fracture defects using endoscopes. Endoscopic assisted combined transantral and subciliary technique provides better surgical access and outcome in the treatment of orbital floor fracture.
