What surgical approach has the lowest risk of the lower lid complications in the treatment of orbital floor and periorbital fractures? A frequentist network meta-analysis.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 21;46(12):2164-2175. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Freelance Researcher, Yemen.

Purpose: Evidence on the best surgical approach with the lowest lower lid complications (LLCs) in the treatment of orbital floor (OF) and periorbital fractures (POFs) is limited because of the absence of head-to-head studies.
