PURPOSE Spontaneous enophthalmos and hypoglobus, in the absence of other symptoms and unrelated to trauma or surgery, may be alarming to both physician and patient. The authors describe the clinicopathologic features of a benign syndrome ("silent sinus syndrome") with this constellation of features and discuss the possible pathophysiology. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVE To correlate the clinicopathologic and radiographic features characteristic of orbital solitary fibrous tumor (SFT). METHODS The diagnostic features and clinical outcome of seven adults with orbital SFT are retrospectively outlined. Orbital imaging was performed by ultrasonography, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging. Some cases(More)
PURPOSE To review cases of spontaneous enophthalmos erroneously diagnosed as silent sinus syndrome to identify other inflammatory disorders with a similar clinical presentation. METHODS Retrospective observational case series. Chart reviews were performed covering encounters over a 5-year period, searching for patients referred to two physicians with an(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize and evaluate treatment options for medial rectus muscle (MR) injury associated with functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). DESIGN Retrospective interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS A total of 30 cases were gathered from 10 centers. METHODS Cases of orbital MR injury associated with FESS surgery were solicited from(More)
PURPOSE To better understand wound healing after glaucoma filtration surgery by measuring the production of type I and type III collagen in cultured Tenon's fibroblasts and determine the effect of ascorbic acid on collagen subtype production. METHODS An ELISA-type dot blot assay was used to directly measure the production of types I and III collagen by(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the technique and success of using monitored anesthesia care instead of general anesthesia for ocular enucleation and evisceration surgeries. DESIGN Retrospective, noncomparative interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Twelve enucleated patients (Soparkar and Patrinely) and 146 eviscerated patients (Kulwin and Kersten). METHODS(More)
OBJECT Partial resection of the orbital bones is not uncommon during the excision of anterior and anterolateral skull base tumors. Controversy exists regarding the need for and extent of reconstruction after this procedure. The authors studied this factor in a series of patients. METHODS The authors conducted a retrospective review of 56 patients in whom(More)
