Abstract

Orbital wall defects occur because of trauma and secondary to oncologic surgery. Reconstruction of orbital bones is of most importance to ensure normal eye functions and cosmesis. Acrylic resin materials can be used instead of a bone in orbital wall defects that are secondary to the resection of tumors invading the orbita. Polymethyl methacrylate is one of the acrylic resin materials. In this study, the orbital wall reconstruction technique with bone cement after maxillectomy and results are reported.
