Abstract

It is difficult to fit an ocular prosthesis and correct periorbital depression deformity in a patient who has undergone radiotherapy after enucleation of the eye for retinoblastoma during infancy. Simultaneously, developmental disturbances of the eyelids and severe periorbital depression deformities develop. However, due to recent advances in microvascular surgery, free flap transplantation is increasingly used for eye socket reconstruction because of its good circulatory effects with enough volume to augment large periorbital tissue defects. In the present study, we report on our success in using a free groin flap, scapular flaps and parascapular flaps simultaneously for reconstruction of eye sockets and correction of depressed deformities.
