Exenteration, or removal of the globe with part or all of the surrounding orbital contents, is generally reserved for malignancy. The procedure may, however, be of value in the management of some benign orbital diseases. The indications for exenteration in management of benign orbital disease are threefold. Firstly, patients in whom diffuse disease, such as idiopathic inflammation, has resulted in an irretrievable situation of visual loss and clinically uncontrollable pain or disfigurement; in… 
Subtotal Exenteration of the Orbit for Benign Orbital Disease.
Case report of patient with long inflammation of the lacrimal pathway leading to orbital inflammation with eye globe destruction and partial exenteration with eyelids sparing technique was indicated, Basal cell carcinoma is the most frequent indication of orbital exEnteration.
Orbital Exenteration: A 23-year Report
Frequency of exenteration in an eye care center has increased in past 3 years and the majority of cases were eyelid basal cell carcinoma, so patient education considering periocular lesions can help in earlier diagnosis of malignant lesions and therefore reducing the number of exEnteration.
Orbital exenteration: indications, techniques and complications
Although a disfiguring procedure, orbital exenteration can provide a cure in certain locally invasive tumors including basal and squamous cell carcinoma, and conservative excision options such as globe-sparing orbital excisions are increasingly being considered.
Multicentred international review of orbital exenteration and reconstruction in oculoplastic and orbit practice
The majority of orbital exenterations performed in this series were secondary to periocular malignancies with unsuccessful/insufficient previous treatments, and were able to withstand radiation therapy without complications.
Orbital exenteration: a review of 429 cases
Spontaneous granulation proved to be a simple technique and produces cosmetically better results for patients not wearing prosthesis and carries out total or eyelid-sacrificing exenteration for lesions involving the eyelids and for recurrent/infiltrative malignant tumors.
Orbital Exenteration for Advanced Periocular Adnexal Malignancies: Curative Versus Palliative Surgical Intent
Exenteration confers a significant survival with advanced periocular malignancies, even in patients with uncontrollable systemic disease, or where the local disease is deemed incurable.
Orbital exenteration: a 13 year Manchester experience
This retrospective study reviewed operating department records via a computerised database to identify patients who had undergone exenteration of the orbit from 1 January 1991 to 1 April 2004 inclusive, at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, with the majority the result of BCCs.
Orbital Exenteration : a series of cases
The main cause of orbital exenteration was squamous cell carcinoma and the most frequent primary site was the eyelids, and extended exEnteration was necessary for the majority of cases, most of them with free margins.

Clinico-Pathological Patterns of Patients Who Underwent Orbital Exenteration in a Tertiary Eye Hospital of Nepal
The most common etiologies requiring orbital exenteration were retinoblastoma (in children and overall) and conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma ( in adults), both diseases that could be addressed with less invasive treatment modality if detected earlier in the disease process.


[Exenteration of the orbit].
The authors evaluate the number and results of exenterations of the orbit on account of malignant neoplasms originating in intraocular structures and penetrating into the orbit or malignant processes
The Surgical Management of Orbital Neurofibromatosis
Orbitofacial neurofibromatosis may cause severe soft-tissue deformity along with pulsating exophthalmos, and the eye in some cases may be functionally useless, immobile, displaced, and blind.
Orbital exenteration with eyelid sparing: indications, technique, and results.
It is concluded that the eyelid-sparing method is indicated mainly for advanced primary orbital malignancies and for certain secondary orbitalmalignancies such as orbital extension of uveal melanoma, conjunctival melanomas, and conjunctiv squamous cell carcinoma.

Orbital exenteration--simplified.
A simplified technique of orbital exenteration has been presented and full thickness skin provides better cushion for self-retaining prosthesis and skin with intact blood supply is much less likely to be rejected.
The Diagnosis and Management of Orbital Tumours
This book contains 16 chapters written by 27 authors, most of whom are American psychiatrists, and indicates that depression in groups of diseases such as cardiac, renal or endocrine disease may be more common than would be expected, given the chronic illness and disability.

Interestingly, orbital surgery that you really wait for now is coming. It's significant to wait for the representative and beneficial books to read. Every book that is provided in better way and
