Deepak G Krishnan, DDS
Assistant Professor of Surgery, Department of Surgery
University of Cincinnati
Cincinnati, OH

Synopsis

Fractures involving the orbital skeleton in either isolation or in concomitance with other injuries present challenges in diagnosis, and management to the oral & maxillofacial surgeon. This presentation will provide an understanding of the patterns of orbital injury, the interpretation of current imaging technology, the parameters for surgical intervention, the surgical approaches to the orbital skeleton, and a discussion of the various materials available for orbital reconstruction. The use of intra-operative navigation surgery, endoscopic surgical options, and secondary repair is discussed.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss the principles in the management of orbital fractures, including pertinent anatomy, patterns of injury, surgical approaches, and various materials utilized in their reconstruction.
  2. Discuss the principles in the management of orbital fractures, including pertinent anatomy, patterns of injury, surgical approaches, and various materials utilized in their reconstruction
  3. Discuss new technological advances such as newer materials, use of intra-operative CT scanning, navigation surgery and 3-D modeling for primary and secondary repair of the fractures of orbital skeleton
