Abstract

Complications during sinuses diseases may affect locoregional structures, such as the orbit. FESS (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery) represents the primary approach of the sinuses so in some rare cases damage can appear involving the orbit or the eyeball. This paper aims to make a review of the management of the orbital trauma during medial meatotomy or anterior ethmoidotomy during FESS. FESS represents the main sinus approach. Due to close location, during the endoscopic procedure of the sinus, orbit trauma can occur. This can lead to bleeding, orbital inflammation, visual loss. The management of such complications should be rapid and effective in order to minimize the long-term impairments.
