Abstract

Fractures of the orbital floor represent a common yet difficult to manage sequelae of craniomaxillofacial trauma. Repair of these injuries should be carried out with the goal of restoring normal orbital volume, facial contour, and ocular motility. Precise surgical repair is imperative to reduce the risk of long-term debilitating morbidity. This article aims to review concepts on the management of orbital floor fractures in the hope of further elucidating perioperative evaluation and decision-making regarding operative intervention.
