  • OBJECTIVE To develop and evaluate a minimally invasive technique of lateral orbitotomy that provides improved orbital access with fewer complications. [...] Key Method We then evaluated the procedure in an outcome study of 30 consecutive patients. RESULTS The cadaver investigations demonstrated that a transconjunctival lateral retrocanthal approach is technically possible and provides improved direct access to the lateral orbit.Expand Abstract
