The Results of Balanced Orbital Volume Increase Surgery With Porous Polyethylene (Medpor) Implants After Post-Traumatic Enophthalmos: Case Reports


Figure 1.
Figure 1. (a) A 38-year-old male patient. Preoperative ptosis, enophthalmos, inferior palpebral retraction with inferior fatty tissue atrophy (arrow) can be observed in the right eye. (b) Image in the post-operative year 1 after enophthalmos surgery, treatment of ptosis and inferior palpebra reconstruction with ear cartilage (slight scleral show is observed). (c) CT image of Medpor implants in the post-operative month 6 (yellow arrow: inferior, blue arrow: lateral). Volume enlargement in the orbital walls is obvious. (d) CT scan for soft tissue examination (yellow arrow: two Medpor implants may be seen in the lower orbita; blue arrow: inferior rectus muscle).
Figure 2.
Figure 2. (a) A 32-year-old female patient with enophthalmos in the right eye. (b) Image in post-operative month 1 after enophthalmos and ptosis surgery. (c) Medpor implant can be observed on the inferior orbital wall perioperatively. (d) CT image in the post-operative month 3 after enophthalmos surgery (yellow arrow: inferior implant; blue arrow: inferior rectus muscle). The patient had intraorbital fat tissue atrophy, but no enlargement in the orbital bone volume.
