Management of orbital fractures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Fractures of the orbit are a very common injury, and are often treated by multiple facial subspecialties. Many fractures can be asymptomatic and do not require surgical therapy, but for those fractures where intervention is indicated, neglect, delay, or inappropriate technique can have permanent consequences on visual function and facial deformity. In this article, the indications and techniques of repair for specific fractures will be discussed, as well as possible risks and complications.
