Prosthetic rehabilitation of surgically treated orbital defects - evisceration, enucleation, and exenteration: A case series

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

The rehabilitation of a patient who has suffered the psychological trauma due to loss of an eye requires a prosthesis that will provide the optimum cosmetic and functional result. The mode of rehabilitation varies based on the type of defect and surgical approach being adopted. A case series of prosthetic rehabilitation of three types of orbital defects - evisceration, enucleation and exenteration have been reported in this article. The clinical relevance of surgical approaches highlights the preservation of remaining anatomic structures creating a negative space or concavity to aid in future prosthetic rehabilitation. A multidisciplinary management and team approach is essential in providing esthetics and to regain the confidence. Follow-up care for the patient is mandatory.

Mentions: A prefabricated eye shell was selected that perfectly matches the contralateral eye. Selective grinding of the eye shell was performed followed by minimal acrylic relining. The intraocular prosthesis was then inserted to the socket [Figure 2].
