Right Orbital Floor and Medial Wall Fractures with Surgical Implant Repair
This exhibit depicts the surgical repair of right orbital floor and medial wall fractures. Pre-operatively, severe orbital floor and medial wall fractures can be seen obliterating the right ethmoid sinus. This causes extreme scarring and recession of the right eyeball into the orbit. The procedure begins with a transconjunctival incision and placement of a Medpor implant into the orbital floor. A second incision is then made through the plica semilunaris with scissors, allowing access to the medial wall of the orbit. Fracture fragments, scar tissue, and ethmoid sinus mucosa are removed. A second Medpor implant is placed over the medial wall, restoring the eyeball to normal anatomical position.
