Prospective Multicenter Trial to Compare Preformed vs Non Preformed Orbital Implants
Accuracy of posttraumatic orbital reconstruction of the meidal orbital wall and/or floor is better with preoperatively preformed orbital implants than with non-preformed orbital implants.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
A nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the ORBIT of the eye. It is usually composed of mature LYMPHOCYTES; PLASMA CELLS; MACROPHAGES; LEUKOCYTES with varying degrees of FIBROSIS. Orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (ORBITAL MYOSITIS) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (DACRYOADENITIS).
Inflammation of the extraocular muscle of the eye. It is characterized by swelling which can lead to ischemia, fibrosis, or ORBITAL PSEUDOTUMOR.
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
The purpose of this study is to gather information about a device used to help fix broken ribs. Hypothesis: Rib fracture repair with the U-plate system is clinically durable and safe for...
A retrospective review to assess the performance and clinical predictive value of a novel software program (Maxillo) designed to perform complex volumetric analysis with application in the...
The purpose of this study is to characterise the clinical features, histopathology and the treatment outcomes of patients with idiopathic orbital inflammation syndrome.
Hypothesis: Polycaprolactone / Tricalcium Phosphate Orbital (PCL / TCP) Implant is as effective in the reconstruction of the Orbital walls as Titanium Mesh implant. In this study we will...
Individuals with non-healing rib fractures may experience significant pain and disability. This is called rib fracture non-union, an unusual problem and one that most physicians have litt...
Several approaches are used to reconstruct orbital floor fractures and restore orbital position and function, but many have the drawback of incomplete visualization, especially of the posterior part o...
Purpose: To evaluate inferior oblique (IO) underaction related to orbital floor fracture and its management. Methods: We retrospectively assessed 137 patients with orbital floor fractures who ha...
Alloplastic orbital implants are commonly used by surgeons in the repair of orbital wall defects. They are generally well tolerated, but they may cause late-onset complications. The authors present th...
Orbital floor fractures are a serious consequence of craniofacial trauma and account for approximately 60%-70% of all orbital fractures. Unfortunately, the body's natural response to orbital floor def...
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 fractur...
