Abstract


Orbital fractures accounts for 10-25% of all facial fractures. Orbital floor and rim fractures can be managed by transconjunctival and
transcutaneous approaches. Transcutaneous approaches are subciliary, subtarsal and infraorbital approaches. In our unit, we used the subtarsal
approach for orbital floor and rim fractures and analysed the benefits and outcome.
