AbstractPurpose: To evaluate morphologic differences in isolated inferior medial orbital wall fractures (OWF) based on computed tomography scans.Methods: This was a retrospective observational case study of 22 patients with an isolated inferior OWF and 32 patients with an isolated medial fracture between January 2008 and August 2010. We analyzed patient demographics and bony radiologic characteristics on CT scans, including the length and height of the lamina papyracea, the number of ethmoid air cell septa, the length of the anterior and posterior border of the orbital floor, the thickness of the orbital floor maxillary bone, and the axial length of the eyeball.Results: There were no significant differences in sex, laterality, or concomitant intraocular injury between the two groups. The anteroposterior length (p = 0.391), the number of ethmoid septa (p = 0.869), and the thickness of the orbital floor (p = 0.419) did not differ significantly. The anterior (p < 0.001) or posterior (p = 0.014) height of the...

Purpose: To compare inferior orbital wall morphology between isolated inferior and medial orbital wall fracture patients. Methods: The morphologic properties of patients with isolated blow-out fractures involving the medial wall or inferior wall treated from August 2004 to August 2009 were reviewed. The cross-sectional area, thickness, gradient, and curvature of the inferior wall were measured via orbital CT in the opposite non-traumatized eye. Results: Patients with isolated inferior wall fract...

Purpose: Volume measurements calculated from axial and coronal CT scans were compared to determine which method more accurately determines orbital volume. Methods: Thirty facial CT scans were used to measure 30 normal orbits using an image analysis program (Dextroscope, Singapore). The 3-dimensional volumes determined from axial scans and coronal scans were analyzed. The coronal scan volume measurements were further subdivided based on anterior limit criteria (termed C1 and C2). Three novel ceph...

PURPOSE. This study compares medial orbital wall supporting structures in patients with isolated inferior and medial wall fractures. METHODS. The morphologic properties in all consecutive patients with periocular trauma who underwent orbital computed tomography (CT) scans from January 2004 to March 2006 were reviewed. On CT scans, the size of the fracture, the number of ethmoid air cell septa, and the length and height of the lamina papyracea were measured. RESULTS. In 118 patients without orbit...

Abstract The size of the eyeball has been the subject of a few studies. None of them used stereological methods to estimate the volume. In the current study, we estimated the volume of eyeball in normal men and women using the stereological methods. Eyeball volume (EV) was estimated using the Cavalieri principle as a combination of point-counting and planimetry techniques. We used computed tomography scans taken from 36 participants (15 men and 21 women) to estimate the EV. The mean (SD) EV valu...

Since the first description of orbital blowout fractures, there has been much confusion as to their etiology. Two principal mechanisms have been proposed to explain their production, the buckling and the hydraulic mechanisms caused, respectively, by trauma to the orbital rim and the globe of the eye. The aim of this study was to evaluate both mechanisms qualitatively and quantitatively. Our protocol used intact cadavers, quantifiable intraocular pressure, variable and quantifiable force, and qua...

Aims: To establish a reliable method for measuring the axial length of the eye with incomplete filling of silicone oil in the vitreous cavity in order to determine the IOL power before executing combined cataract surgery and silicone oil removal. Methods: 12 eyes of 12 patients undergoing combined cataract extraction and silicone oil removal between October 1998 and June 2000 were entered prospectively into this study. All eyes were examined using an x ray computed tomography (CT) scanner. Each ...

Abstract A cogent update of orbital blowout history, anatomy, and management are included with a retrospective study of 59 pure orbital blowout fractures which occurred between 1994 and 1998. Our goal is to provide a better understanding of this frequently encountered entity and to help augment the confidence of nonophthalmologists who will often evaluate patients with suspected orbital blowout fractures. (Am J Emerg Med 2001;19:147-154. This is a US Government work. There are no restrictions on...

Abstract For over a century, since the first description of an orbital ‘blowout’ fracture, there has been debate and confusion regarding the mechanism of production of these fractures. An orbital blowout fracture throughout this paper refers to fractures exhibiting displacement of the orbital floor or walls without an associated fracture of the orbital rim. These are the so called ‘pure’ blowout fractures as described by Converse. Involvement of the orbit in a variety of facial fracture patterns...

The stiffness and length of the orbital walls are proportionally dependent on the anatomical structures which support and strengthen these walls from the opposite side. The medial wall is therefore strong due to the support of ethmoid cells. The floor is stronger the less surface there is and the more supported it is by trabeculae of the maxillar sinus. The strength of the upper and lateral walls are proportional to their thickness. The orbital floor is on the average the weakest, followed by th...

The most effective treatment for orbital fractures is still under debate and different strategies are proposed in the literature. All such strategies focus on reconstruction of the orbital structure, neglecting the main function of the medial and inferior walls, these latter being constructed so as to break during high energy trauma. The aim of the authors is to highlight the difference between different reconstructive techniques in an orbital fracture restoration, being inclined to favor repair...

Nowadays the development of diagnostic imaging, surgical techniques, alloplastic materials, and surgical instruments has made possible a more accurate management of orbital fractures. The aim of the present study was the management of orbital fractures and the solution of particular cases. The use of high-resolution computed tomography makes possible to gain a better understanding of the complex orbit anatomical structure. Also endoscopy is a valid alternative for medial orbital wall fractures t...

Abstract Purpose The aim of this study was to measure orbital and optic canal volumes by means of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) of human skulls as a prerequisite for estimating alterations of this bony region by this method. Materials and methods A total of 200 orbits of 100 adult individuals were investigated. These patients had no history of orbital trauma, dysplasia, or other diseases with a putative effect on orbital growth (female/male = 50/50; age: 20–70 years). Each 10 individuals ...
