Measurement of orbital volume was conducted in 10 patients with blow-out fractures as well as in 20 controls. A bony orbital volume increase of up to 13.4+ +/- 6.0% was noted in the preoperative measurements. Proper reconstruction of the bony orbit in four patients reversed the volume change observed and achieved a satisfactory outcome. In the surgical techniques, we stress the importance of posterior floor restoration. Judicious analysis of the image and volume changes using computed… CONTINUE READING
