Purpose: Orbital floor Fractures are the most common fractures involving the facial skeleton and usually occurs after traumatic events. The reconstruction of the orbital floor can be performed with different biocompatible materials. The aim of our retrospective study is to analyze the short- and long-term outcomes of surgically treated patients based on the material used to repair the orbital floor. Methods: We enrolled 146 patients hospitalized for orbital floor fractures in the Maxillofacial Surgery Unit of the Federico II University of Naples from 1 to 2010 to July 2020. All the fractured orbital floors were reconstructed with non-resorbable (Titanium Mesh, SynPor, SuPor and MedPor implants) or resorbable (collagen membrane, bovinum pericardium membrane, autologous bone graft) materials. Results: We utilized non-resorbable materials in 56% (82 cases) and resorbable implants in 44% (64 cases). An improvement of the preoperative symptomatology and an aesthetical good outcome was achieved in most cases. Conclusions: Data obtained supports that both resorbable and non-resorbable materials for orbital floor reconstruction are a safe and effective alternatives and offer satisfactory results in functional and aesthetic evaluations.

Abstract

Purpose: Orbital floor Fractures are the most common fractures involving the facial skeleton and usually occurs after traumatic events. The reconstruction of the orbital floor can be performed with different biocompatible materials. The aim of our retrospective study is to analyze the short- and long-term outcomes of surgically treated patients based on the material used to repair the orbital floor. Methods: We enrolled 146 patients hospitalized for orbital floor fractures in the Maxillofacial Surgery Unit of the Federico II University of Naples from 1 to 2010 to July 2020. All the fractured orbital floors were reconstructed with non-resorbable (Titanium Mesh, SynPor, SuPor and MedPor implants) or resorbable (collagen membrane, bovinum pericardium membrane, autologous bone graft) materials. Results: We utilized non-resorbable materials in 56% (82 cases) and resorbable implants in 44% (64 cases). An improvement of the preoperative symptomatology and an aesthetical good outcome was achieved in most cases. Conclusions: Data obtained supports that both resorbable and non-resorbable materials for orbital floor reconstruction are a safe and effective alternatives and offer satisfactory results in functional and aesthetic evaluations.
