The Connective Tissue Apparatus of the Human Orbit. What About It?
As a consequence of some ununderstood motility and vascular disturbances encountered by our Orbital Centre, before and after surgery of blow-out fractures, a new anatomical and embryological approach to the human orbit was developed. This new approach revealed unknown connective tissue septa inside the human orbit which are highly, organized. These connective tissue septa lie between the eyeball and the orbital walls and are arranged in a specific spatial architecture (Koornneef, 1977*) forming a complex and ingenious connective tissue apparatus. This apparatus plays an important role during eye movements. Literature data support this view.
