Anatomy of the human orbit

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The contents of the human orbit develop from all embryonic germinal layers to form diverse and specialized interconnected structures, whose unified function is that of providing sight. A thorough knowledge of these structures and their inter-relationships is imperative for the head and neck surgeon. This article will discuss the structures contained within the orbit from a surgical perspective in the hope of expanding the head and neck surgeon's knowledge and comfort when treatment indication necessitates entry into this space.
