Abstract

This report describes a pitfall of reconstruction for severe enophthalmos after time has passed following traumatic injury. In severe cases, hypoglobus may be refractory to reconstructive surgery. The posterior wall of the maxillary sinus is sometimes implicated in severe enophthalmos. Thus, we considered that reconstruction of this posterior wall is critical for improvement in hypoglobus. In addition, a satisfactory contour and improvement in hypoglobus were maintained postoperatively.
