Post-traumatic orbital floor reconstruction with nasoseptal cartilage in children


, : Post-traumatic orbital floor reconstruction with nasoseptal cartilage in children. International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology 64(3): 187-192, 9 July

Objective: Repair of orbital floor fractures may require the placement of a graft or implant. Both autogenous and alloplastic materials have been used for this purpose. This article reports the use of nasal septal cartilage for the repair of orbital floor defect secondary to blunt facial trauma in children. Methods: Three children with disruption of the orbital floor after facial trauma were included in this prospective review. All children underwent open reduction with rigid fixation of the facial fractures and reconstruction of the orbital floor with nasoseptal cartilage. Results: All of the cases were successfully treated by restoration of the orbital floor continuity. On follow-up clinical examination, one patient had persistent mild enophthalmus. Conclusions: Nasal septal cartilage is a readily accessible autogenous material with minimal donor site morbidity, and should be considered when an autogenous orbital implant is needed for the repair of a traumatic orbital floor defect.
