Human anatomy is a marvelous creation of nature. A face that looks beautiful on the outside is made up of complicated network of bones, nerves, and muscles. Extreme care should be taken to protect the face from trauma because any facial trauma can cause complications. The most common feature of the face that is affected by trauma is the orbital area. Direct trauma to the orbital area can cause multiple problems.
The orbital area is comprised of seven different bones and any trauma to the orbital area can cause one or more of these bones to fracture. For evaluation of the trauma of the face, generally a full scope CT scan is the best approach to begin the treatment. The wall that acts as the separator between the air cavity and the orbit is called the medial wall. If the medial wall gets affected by trauma it can cause the muscle to get entrapped in the fractured bone and may cause double vision and pain in moving the eyes. Such orbital trauma cases require immediate care and treatment as the vision of the patient gets endangered. The bony wall that separates the maxillary sinus and the orbit is known as the orbital floor. If the orbital trauma is great enough to cause fracture of more than half of the orbital floor, then the patient should be taken for emergency trauma care and surgery because the eye may get pushed in to the fracture. Treatment and surgery will also be required in cases where more than a third of the orbital floor is cracked along with the medial wall. Extreme care needs to be taken in the treatment and surgery in orbital trauma because the numbness of the face may increase after the surgery has been performed. All cases of orbital trauma should only be handled by the best and most qualified super- specialist in India.
Orbital fractures of the lateral orbital wall need high intensity impact to occur. Generally, orbital trauma to this part also fractures the ZMC complex. The treatment and surgery of orbital wall is aimed at realigning the broken orbital bones and also reduce the facial tenderness. Orbital trauma may lead to problems in opening the mouth which also calls for immediate care and surgery. The change in the shape of the cheeks is also an indication for surgery.
If the trauma has caused the bones of the orbital rim to get displaced, surgery is generally performed to ensure that there is no loss in orbital volume. Trauma to the roof of the orbit can cause the roof to break but it occurs mostly in children. Care is taken while the treatment is going on but in most cases surgery is not performed for orbital roof repair. But quick care has to be taken of trauma if the eye muscles are trapped in the bones or the patients is experiencing decrease in the vision. Treatment by surgery can be put on hold by the health care providers if the globe is severely damaged.
Orbital trauma care in India:-
Mostly all cases orbital trauma can be repaired by quick treatment and good care. Generally, the treatment begins with stabilization of the orbital trauma followed by orbital surgery for which the incisions may be made inside the lid and on the corner of the eye. Treatment of the fractures of the orbital trauma may require an implant surgery. Though implant surgery is quite safe, in few cases a second orbital surgery may be required for removing the implants in case post- trauma lack of care causes complications.
It has been observed by some of the top doctors in India, that patients do not take the best care of the orbital trauma injuries after their surgery. Lack of post- trauma care may lead to very major complications. After the surgery, there can be bleeding and infection at the site of the orbital trauma. The surgery is performed with extreme care and precaution because if the surgery is not executed well vision loss may occur.
