Abstract

A case is presented in which a unilateral "orbital decompression" had been previously performed, down-fracturing the orbital floor and in-fracturing the medial orbital wall. Because of persistent bilateral exophthalmos, a four-wall orbital expansion was performed. Orbital volume determinations were made before and after the second procedure, making it possible to compare the effects of the two operations.
