Orbital reconstruction: a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating the role of patient-specific implants.

Oral Maxillofac Surg 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

The purpose of this study is to execute an evidence-based review answering the following question (PICO): "Do patient-specific implants (PSI), manufactured or designed using computer-assisted technology, improve outcomes (orbital volume change, enophthalmos, diplopia, and operative duration) compared to conventional methods in orbital reconstruction following traumatic orbital injury in the adult patient population?" We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis in accordance with PRISMA guidelines. Inclusion criteria included any comparative paper whereby computer-assisted technology was used in the prefabrication or design process of implants for use in post-traumatic orbital reconstruction. Paediatric patient populations were excluded. Read More

Reflections on a patient-centered approach to treatment of blow-out fractures: Why the wisdom of the pastmust guide our decision-making.

Paolo Scolozzi

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2022 Apr 25. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Head, Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva & University Hospitals of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland. Electronic address:

The management of blow-out orbital fractures (BOFs) continues to be controversial and regularly questioned. In recent years, treatment decision-making has shifted from a clinically dominated emphasis to a more objective data-based approach. This has come about through the refinement of imaging technologies that can more precisely define the fracture itself. Read More

Primary reconstruction of extensive orbital fractures using two-piece patient-specific implants: the Helsinki protocol.

Oral Maxillofac Surg 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Diseases, Helsinki University Hospital and University of Helsinki, Haartmaninkatu 4E, 00029 HUS, Helsinki, Finland.

Purpose: We present our experience of titanium-milled two-piece patient-specific implants (PSIs) for primary reconstructions of extensive orbital floor and medial wall fractures (EOFMFs) and evaluate their postoperative functional and aesthetic outcomes in relation to commercially available implants.

Methods: We included all patients with primary reconstructions (< 22 days from injury) of EOFMFs treated in our department between January 2011 and October 2020. Extensive orbital floor and medial wall fracture was defined as involvement of orbital floor, medial wall and maxilloethmoidal junction; a fracture defect 5 mm or more; defect size more than a third of both inferior and medial walls; and Jaquiéry classification III or more.

Secondary Correction of Posttraumatic Enophthalmos.

Facial Plast Surg 2022 May 11. Epub 2022 May 11.

Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Cincinnati, United States.

Posttraumatic enophthalmos (PE) arises when the ocular globe is displaced posteriorly and inferiorly in the orbital cavity due to a mismatch in orbital volume and orbital content. This most commonly happens after orbital fractures. The resulting disruptions to aesthetic form and ocular functions often necessitate surgical correction for reconstruction and restoration.

Orbital Fractures With Concomitant Ocular Nerve Palsy: An Insidious and Potentially Misleading Association in Surgical Decision-Making.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2022 Mar 25. Epub 2022 Mar 25.

Head, Neuro-Ophthalmology and Strabology Unit, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Division of Ophthalmology, University Hospital and Faculty of Medicine of Geneva, Genève, Switzerland.

Purpose: Orbital fractures (OFs) are common, but their association with concomitant traumatic ocular nerve palsy (TONP) is exceptional and may potentially cause confusing clinical pictures of oculomotor involvement. The purpose of the present study is to describe a series of patients with OFs and concomitant TONP following facial trauma and to evaluate clinical features, diagnostic pitfalls, and final functional outcome.

Methods: The investigators designed and implemented a retrospective case series and enrolled a sample of patients with OFs and concomitant TONP who had been managed at the University Hospitals of Geneva between 2013 and 2020. Read More

A new approach to categorization of ocular injury among U.S. Armed Forces.

MSMR 2022 02;29(2):8-14

This report describes a new approach to categorizing ocular injury using Military Health System data, the application of an algorithm to a dataset, and the verification of the results using an audit of clinical data. Based on health care encounter data, an algorithm was developed to systematically document the occurrence of specific complications and medical procedures in the 12 months following initial ocular injuries. The injuries were classified into 1 of 2 groups: "uncomplicated injury" with no complications or medical procedures and "complicated injury" with complications and/or medical procedures. Read More

Does Early Treatment of Paediatric Orbital Fracture Offer Any Advantage in Terms of Post-Operative Clinical Outcomes.

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2022 Mar 11;21(1):25-33. Epub 2021 Mar 11.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, 221005 India.

Background: Trapdoor fractures commonly occur in children below 6 years of age. The high resiliency of bone, pneumatisation of sinuses and other factors lead to entrapment of muscle and/or soft tissue which undergoes ischaemic changes leading to residual diplopia. The timing of intervention in children ranges from 24 h to greater than 2 weeks. Read More

Recurrent Retrobulbar Hemorrhage Associated With CPAP Use After Orbital Fracture Repair.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 Mar 30. Epub 2022 Mar 30.

Truhlsen Eye Institute, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.A.; and.

We present a patient who underwent orbital fracture repair complicated by retrobulbar hemorrhages twice within the first postoperative week. The suspected cause is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) use with inappropriate patient-modified settings. The most likely mechanism of action was venous congestion from the extrinsic positive pressure, similar to Valsalva maneuvers increasing orbital vasculature pressure. Read More

Mathematical analysis of fracture configuration in predicting outcome in complex anterior skull base trauma.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2021 Nov 16. Epub 2021 Nov 16.

Department of Anaesthesia, St Marys Hospital NHS Trust, UK.

Craniofacial trauma involving the anterior skull base produces a heterogenous injury with variance in fracture pattern, complexity and outcome. Variance is influenced by the biomechanical properties of the craniofacial construct and by the magnitude and vector of the impacting energy. Fractal dimension and other metrics applied to individual fracture patterns allows quantification of fracture complexity and severity, which can be used to correlate with neurological outcome.

Biocompatible Materials for Orbital Wall Reconstruction-An Overview.

Materials (Basel) 2022 Mar 16;15(6). Epub 2022 Mar 16.

Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, District 5, 020021 Bucharest, Romania.

The reconstruction of an orbit after complex craniofacial fractures can be extremely demanding. For satisfactory functional and aesthetic results, it is necessary to restore the orbital walls and the craniofacial skeleton using various types of materials. The reconstruction materials can be divided into autografts (bone or cartilage tissue) or allografts (metals, ceramics, or plastic materials, and combinations of these materials). Read More

Outcome Analysis of Surgical Timing in Pediatric Orbital Trapdoor Fracture with Different Entrapment Contents: A Retrospective Study.

Children (Basel) 2022 Mar 11;9(3). Epub 2022 Mar 11.

Division of Traumatic Plastic Surgery, Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Craniofacial Research Center, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital at LinKou, Chang Gung University College of Medicine, Taoyuan City 333, Taiwan.

Orbital trapdoor fracture occurs more commonly in pediatric patients, and previous studies suggested early intervention for a better outcome. However, there is no consensus on the appropriate timing of emergent intervention due to the insufficient cases reported. In the current retrospective study, we compared the outcomes of patient groups with different time intervals from injury to surgical intervention and entrapment content. Read More
