  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

The posttraumatic enophthalmus is caused by fractures of the orbital walls involving the lateral and inferior lateral walls as wellas the orbital floor. In the majority of cases this condition was caused by fractures of mixed or multiple type, i.e., when more than one osseous component orbital walls were involved. The enophthalmus is usually accom-panied by facial deformity, dislocation of theeyeball and diplopia as troublesome symptoms.

The treatment consists of reconstruction of the fractured walls involving first the zygo-ma and the maxilla and, secondarily, the orb-ital floor.
