When confronted with facial injury, the pattern of palpation is as follows: supraorbital and lateral orbital rims
, infraorbital rims, malar eminences, zygomatic arches, nasal bones, maxilla and mandible.
An immediate CT was obtained, and it showed a new fracture line in the superomedial orbital rim
A sudden increase in pressure around the circumference of the orbital rim
can result in a 'blow out fracture' in which there is damage to an orbital wall.
In this article, we report a case of dentigerous cyst of the maxilla and maxillary sinus that caused the ectopic displacement of an unerupted tooth into the orbital rim
With more force, the fracture progresses to involve the thick glabellar bone, the frontal sinuses, and the medial and inferior orbital rims
The lateral nasal wall was removed endoscopically from the inferior orbital rim
to the inferior turbinate to expose the lateral portion of the maxillary sinus.
Using a reciprocating saw, osteotomy of the outer table of the frontal bone and superior orbital rim
was performed as close as possible to the lateral sinus margins.
The tarsal-strip procedure is designed to correct lid laxity by shortening the lower canthus and suspending it from the medial surface of the lateral orbital rim
These procedures include lateral orbitotomy, (8) transconjunctival cryoextraction, (9) medial orbitotomy, (10) gamma-knife radiosurgery, (11) and anterior orbital rim
The patient underwent a complete excision of the mass followed by immediate reconstruction of the zygomnaxillary buttress and the orbital rim
Finally, the surgeon should be most careful not to point the trocar toward the orbit because this could result in blindness; it might be helpful to palpate the inferior orbital rim
during the procedure to reinforce the limit of positioning.
Injections delivered outside the orbital rim
have the shortest duration of action and the least effect, but they also cause the fewest side effects.
