Fracture de la paroi mediale de l'orbite. A propos de 4 observations. [Fracture of the medial wall of the orbit. Apropos of 4 cases]
Revue de Stomatologie et de Chirurgie Maxillo-Faciale
Fractures or the medial wall of the orbit are uncommon and clinical signs are often discreet. This report was focused on isolated fractures of the medial wall of the orbit. Blow-out trauma is usually the cause. In these cases the clinical signs ranged from simple ecchymosis to blindness by haematoma of the orbital cone. Computed tomography is a major tool for diagnosis and making therapeutic indications for these fractures. Treatment depends on the oculomotor involvements as measured by forced duction tests.
