Orbital reconstruction of a patient with esthesioneuroblastoma: A case report
Faranak Vakili, Pooya Jannati
Maxillofacial rehabilitation, a combination of art and science, has always been challenging. The eyes are vital organs not only for vision but also for facial expression. Facial disfigurement due to the loss of an eye and the associated structures may cause physical and psychological distress to the patient. Providing artificial substitutes to restore the form and functions is mandatory to elevate the psychological status of such patients. Retention, stability, and marginal gap due to excessive bone loss following surgery are the major rehabilitation problems in orbital defects with adhesive retained orbital prostheses. Rehabilitating apatient with a removable orbital prosthesis is an economical and patient-friendly procedure that restores the patient's social situation.
