Orbital fractures are frequently observed in maxillofacial trauma and can cause a wide range of functional impairments and esthetic deformities. Many approaches have been used for the repair of medial orbital wall fractures. It has been necessary to use grafts or splints in these approaches. We introduced a new technique to treat our patient with diplopia(More)
