Monocular Diplopia and Nondisplaced Inferior Rectus Muscle on Computed Tomography in a Pediatric Pure Orbital-Floor Fracture.

Trapdoor fractures are common in children because of elastic nature of the pediatric bone. Clinical signs and radiological evidence in these cases may be minimal.This study involves a 14-year-old girl...

Predictors of enophthalmos among adult patients with pure orbital blowout fractures.

The aim of this study was to determine the predictors of post-traumatic enophthalmos (PE) in relation to the internal orbital changes following pure orbital blowout fractures. The design was a 10-year...

Orbital Floor and Rim Reconstruction With a Titanium Orbital Implant and Acellular Dermis.

Reconstruction of the orbital rim and floor following tumor excision is traditionally performed with bone grafts, vascularized grafts, or free flaps. The authors describe a case of an osteosarcoma of ...

Early Experience With Nonporous Polyethylene Barrier Sheet in Orbital Fracture Repair.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the nonporous polyethylene barrier sheet as an alternative for nylon foil (SupraFOIL) implants in repair of orbital fractures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

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)

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.
