Abstract

The medial wall and floor of the bony orbit are frequently fractured because of the delicate anatomy. To optimize functional and aesthetic results, reconstructive surgeons should understand the anatomy and pathophysiology of orbital fractures. Appropriate treatment involves optimal timing of intervention, proper indications for operative repair, incision and dissection, release of herniated tissue, implant material and placement, and wound closure. The following review will discuss the management of orbital floor fractures, with the operative method preferred by the author. Special considerations in operation technique and the complication are also present in this article.
