Utilization of the superficial temporoparietal fascia in reconstructive plastic surgery. A clinical case.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 1989 ;5(4):274-6

Institute of Plastic Surgery, Medical School, University of Padova, Italy.

Reconstruction of the orbit can at times be difficult when tumors of this region are resected. We describe a new surgical procedure to reconstruct the outer canthus of the orbital region, including lateral portions of the upper and lower lids. The techniques that were used until now are often limited in repairing this anatomical area, and the results we obtained with this case encourage us to utilize the superficial temporal fascia.
