  • Reconstructing a Traumatic Empty Orbit: Principles, Difficulties of Treatment, and Literature Review. [Review]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Stable reconstruction of the maxillo-ethmoidal buttress is of great importance in patients with comminuted injuries. This strut determines the appropriate orbital volume and defines the position of the eye in space. Patients with insufficient restoration of the buttress are always at risk of developing enophthalmos. To replicate the contour of the S-shape of the orbital floor and the slope of the medial wall, the authors support the use of thin implants with rigid fixation on the bony orbit as the most suitable materials to achieve this. Thick implants can be rather difficult to bend, and when this is attempted several times they are more prone to fractures. Conversely, very thin and flexible implants can always be dislodged and cause late enophthalmos.
  • Serum Metal Levels in Maxillofacial Reconstructive Surgery Patients: A Pilot Study. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first study to report on the release of metal into the bloodstream in patients with different maxillofacial implanted metallic objects. The results raise questions regarding the types and magnitude of metal released from maxillofacial reconstruction devices and their potential long-term local and systemic effects. Future large-scale prospective studies involving serial measurements in homogeneous groups of patients could further elucidate the impact of these findings.
