Closed technique for naso-orbito-ethmoid fracture management: Technical note.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg.

Abstract

Trauma to the naso-orbito-ethmoid region invariably results in detachment of medial canthal tendon. The shape of medial canthus is of important esthetic and functional concern. Accurate reposition of the medial canthus is important to achieve normal form and function. The various available techniques advocate open approach leaving an obvious scar in the esthetically prominent region. This technique intends to address these fractures through a closed approach with the possibility to make finer adjustments as and when required. We report the experience of treating 4 naso-orbito-ethmoid fractures with a new innovative technique with predictable results.
