Autogenous Dermis-Fat Orbital Impant for Anophthalmic Socket

By Abdullah Al-Mujaini, Anuradha Ganesh and Sana Al-Zuhaibi

Abstract

To our knowledge, there is no report of dermis-fat graft (DFG) implant for orbital reconstruction from Oman. We hereby presented a case report of a 10-year-old boy with a blind and painful left eye secondary to penetrating eye injury presented with implant extrusion following evisceration with a polymethyl methacrylate implant. The evisceration procedure was converted to enucleation and a DFG orbital implant was then performed. Postoperatively, the graft was observed to be well integrated with the host orbital tissues and had good cosmetic and functional outcomes
