Fractures of the midface and internal orbit occur isolated or in combination with other injuries. Frequently, the patients are first seen in emergency rooms responsible for the coordination of initial diagnostic procedures, followed by the transfer to specialties for further treatment. It is, therefore, important for all physicians treating facial trauma patients to understand the basic principles of injuries to the midface. Thus, this article aims to describe the anatomy and the current classification systems in use, the related clinical symptoms, and the essential diagnostic measures to obtain precise information about the injury pattern...

Orbital roof fractures are relatively uncommon in craniofacial surgery but present a management challenge due to their anatomy and potential associated injuries. Currently, neither a classification system nor treatment algorithm exists for orbital roof fractures, which this article aims to provide. This article provides a literature review and clinical experience of a tertiary trauma center in Australia. All cases admitted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with orbital roof fractures between January 2011 and July 2013 were reviewed regarding patient characteristics, mechanism, imaging (computed tomography), and management...

The rectus extraocular muscles (EOMs) and inferior oblique muscle have paths through the orbit constrained by connective tissue pulleys. These pulleys shift position during contraction and relaxation of the EOMs, dynamically changing the biomechanics of force transfer from the tendon onto the globe. The paths of the EOMs are tightly conserved in normal patients and disorders in the location and/or stability of the pulleys can create patterns of incomitant strabismus that may mimic oblique muscle dysfunction and cranial nerve paresis...

In Christchurch Hospital, rapid prototyping (RP) and intraoperative imaging are the standard of care in orbital trauma and has been used since February 2013. RP allows the fabrication of an anatomical model to visualize complex anatomical structures which is dimensionally accurate and cost effective. This assists diagnosis, planning, and preoperative implant adaptation for orbital reconstruction. Intraoperative imaging involves a computed tomography scan during surgery to evaluate surgical implants and restored anatomy and allows the clinician to correct errors in implant positioning that may occur during the same procedure...

Due to its similarity to humans, the pig has proven to be a suitable biomodel for both research purposes and for training medical professionals, particularly in surgical specializations. For example, new implant materials have been tested on pig jaws and pigs have also been used in the development of new surgical techniques. For optimizing the effectiveness of such research or training, detailed data on the anatomy of their particular features are needed. At present, however, only limited information related to surgical and imaging anatomy of the facial and orbital areas of the pig and its comparison to human structures from the experimental surgery point of view is available in the literature...

Ophthalmologists perform a wide array of interventions on the orbital contents. The surgical treatment of glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, and ocular trauma or malignancy results in alteration of the standard anatomy, which is often readily evident at radiologic examinations. The ability to accurately recognize the various imaging manifestations after orbital surgery is critical for radiologists to avoid misdiagnosis. Of particular importance is familiarity with the numerous types of implanted devices, such as glaucoma drainage devices, orbital implants, and eyelid weights...

The severity of midfacial and orbital injuries depends on the one hand on cause, force vector, load point, or area and on the other hand on the bony and soft tissue resistance as well as individual anatomy. These variables result in a variety of possible injuries of the midfacial and orbital complex. The time critical choice of an adequate imaging modality of these injuries is influenced by the possible severity of concomitant injuries. Besides the confirmation of a clinical diagnosis, the need for high-resolution three-dimensional imaging for preoperative planning of facial reconstruction using intraoperative navigation has become more and more important in the past years...

We present a modification of the classic lateral canthal approach by means of which the anatomy of the lateral palpebral edges will remain unscathed, with the incision beginning 2 mm lateral to the external canthus. We have used this technique in 76 patients at 3 major trauma centers in Bogota, Colombia, from January 2006 to January 2012. The approach provided excellent access to the frontozygomatic area, lateral wall of the orbit, and malar body. This method avoids important anatomic structures and offers outstanding cosmetic results, especially in adult patients...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: A myriad of surgical approaches to the craniomaxillofacial skeleton exist. Depending on the purpose of the procedure and the anatomic area to be addressed, classically used approaches include coronal approach, midfacial degloving, eyelid incisions, and other cutaneous incisions. Over the last decade, endoscopic approaches have become more popular. Whether external, transoral, or endoscopic, a detailed knowledge of the indications, anatomy, limitations, and potential complications is critical to the successful employment of these approaches...

Traumatic ocular injuries are a significant cause of blindness and visual deficits. In the setting of acute orbital trauma, urgent ophthalmologic evaluation and intervention are critical in preserving vision. However, in the acute trauma setting, clinical evaluation of the globe may be difficult in the presence of surrounding periorbital soft-tissue swelling and other associated injuries, and patient cooperation may be limited because of unresponsiveness, altered mentation, or sedation. Often, rapid access to imaging is part of the initial diagnostic evaluation, and radiologists may be the first to identify traumatic injuries of the globe...

The literature-reported incidence of ophthalmic injuries occurring with facial fracture ranges widely from 0.8% to 30%. Ocular trauma necessitating enucleation or evisceration is less common, but it is not rare. The trauma and physical disability related to removal of the eye are extreme. Moreover, the loss of an eye causes severe changes to the anatomy and physiology of the orbit, resulting in deformities that affect the relationship between the socket and the prosthesis. Here, the authors present their own experience of 8 consecutive cases of trauma injuries with globe loss and emphasize the importance of accurate, early bone reconstruction involving evisceration and immediate socket restoration...

Closed head injuries vary from the very minor to the catastrophic. It is often difficult to differentiate the severity at initial presentation. Serial assessment is very valuable. Awareness of facial injuries is aided by familiarity with facial bone anatomy and the clinical presentation of orbital, zygomatic, maxillary, and mandibular fracture. Functional injury such as concussion may coexist with other injuries. This article will discuss closed head trauma and outline specific injuries to the face, brain, skull, and its surroundings...
