Integrated orbital implants

Adv Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 1990;8:75-81.

Abstract

Newer trends in enucleation surgery have included placement of the orbital implant deep within the muscle cone. The use of homologous or autologous tissue to wrap the implant has aided in decreasing extrusion. Newer implant materials show promise in reducing extrusion and in creating an integrated motility implant.
