Orbital Wall Fractures

What is an Orbital Wall Fracture?

An Orbital Wall Fracture, or orbital blowout fracture, occurs when the delicate bones of the eye socket fracture due to significant force applied to the face. Such fractures can occur in different locations within the orbit, and their severity varies. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential to prevent complications and protect vision.

What happens during Orbital Wall Fractures surgery?

The surgical repair for Orbital Wall Fractures aims to realign the fractured bones, restore orbital volume, and protect the eye. Techniques may include: * Orbital Reconstruction with Implants: Here, specialized implants are used to reconstruct and stabilize the fractured orbital walls. * Endoscopic Repair: A minimally invasive technique involving small incisions and specialized instruments to repair the fracture.

Going home after Orbital Wall Fractures surgery

A recovery period is necessary after the repair, where specific instructions on post-operative care, including wound care, pain management, and activity restrictions are provided. Follow-up appointments are crucial to monitor the healing process and assess any complications.

Specific complications following Orbital Wall Fractures

Complications of orbital wall fracture repair can include infection, bleeding, damage to surrounding structures, persistent double vision, or changes in vision. Choosing an experienced ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon like Dr. Jamil Al Jamali minimizes these risks and ensures the best possible outcomes.
