  Purpose

Purpose to compare the orbital fracture size measured by orbital CT scan and compare it to the actual orbital fracture size intraoperatively in patients who needed surgical intervention to correct the fracture.

Hypothesis: there is difference between the CT measure fracture size and the actual intraoperative size.


Condition Intervention
Orbital Fractures
Procedure: operative fracture size vs CT fracture size
Procedure: orbital fracture intraoperative measurement

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Patients with orbital fractures that require surgical repair will have their fracture"s" size measured intraoperatively by a ruler and/or a caliper in millimeters and compare it to the size measured by the CT scan. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Patients with orbital fractures that need to be operated. Their intraoperative fracture size will be measured by the orbital surgeon by a ruler or/and a caliper in millimeters. Size on CT scan is determined by counting the number of slides that show the fracture (for anteropsterior fracture we measure the number of coronal sections that show the fracture multiply X1-each section is 1millimeter thickness, and so on for mediolateral fractures we measure saggital sections number and for superoinferior fractures the axial sections that show the fracture.


Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: December 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: orbital fractures size
patients who undergo surgical repair of orbital fracture with measuring the fracture size intraoperatively and had available orbital Ct scan preoperatively.
Procedure: operative fracture size vs CT fracture size
comparing actual intraoperative fracture size to the CT fracture size
Procedure: orbital fracture intraoperative measurement
comparing intraoperative fracture size to the CT orbital fracture size
