PURPOSE It has been frequently stated that the orbital decompression, in patients with thyroid ophthalmopathy, does not usually improve extraocular muscles function and that after the operation there is often a deterioration of these functions. The purpose of this article is evaluation of extraocular muscles function after applying personal method of 3 wall(More)
Conservative therapy in cases of severe dysthyroid ophthalmopathy (DO) has not given satisfactory results. Since 1986, 51 patients (99 orbits) with marked DO have been treated by surgical decompression of the orbits. The procedure begins within the upper eyelid. The excision of the excessive skin and subcutaneous tissue is performed and eyelid fat is(More)
Masseter muscle hypertrophy (MMH) is most probably a congenital, genetically determined anomaly. Thus we should refer to it as hyperplasia rather than hypertrophy of the masseteric muscle. Excision of the internal layer of the masseter muscle and reduction of the thickened bone in the region of the mandibular angle, via an intraoral approach, is the(More)
Pericranial or osteopericranial flaps pedicled on the superficial temporal vessels were used in the correction of various facial deformities in 16 patients. In 5 patients orthognathic surgery was also performed. In all patients a significant aesthetic improvement was achieved. In order to achieve a satisfactory tissue volume and thickness it was necessary(More)
Experience gained in the treatment of 16 patients with refracture of untreated fractures of the zygomatic bone is presented. Refracture, repositioning and wire fixation is the method of choice in the correction of facial deformity after untreated displaced fractures of the zygomatic bone. If necessary, osteoplasty of the orbital floor and raising of the(More)
The present article deals with the surgical experience of treating 72 patients for posttraumatic enophthalmos. Patients were divided into the following 4 groups with respect to the type of injury and the time of surgery: Group 1, recent midfacial injuries with orbital floor fractures; Group 2, recent blow-out fractures; Group 3, neglected blow-out(More)
Experience gained in the treatment of 75 patients with orbital floor injuries is presented. These injuries occurred independently or in association with mid-face fractures. In fractures of the zygomatic bone and the zygomatic part of the orbit repositioning of the zygomatic bone by a traction hook is the simplest method. In recent multiple fractures of the(More)
Conservative therapy in cases of severe thyroid ophthalmopathy has not given satisfactory results. Because of this, surgical treatment, that is, orbital decompression, is now being used with increasing frequency. Since the end of 1986 until the end of 2006, 103 patients with severe thyroid ophthalmopathy have been treated by personal 3-wall orbital(More)
