Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES
The postoperative cheek cyst with orbital involvement is a rare condition and the treatment of eroded orbital floor is controversial. This study evaluated the efficacy of endoscopic marsupialization for treating postoperative cheek cyst with orbital floor defect and assessed the requirements of a direct orbital approach for orbital reconstruction.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
The study involved a retrospective review of twelve patients with postoperative cheek cyst and orbital floor defect. Medical records were reviewed for details of previous surgery, presenting symptoms, surgical approach and the results of the operation. The maximum diameter of the involved orbital floor was calculated using the coronal imaging of paranasal sinus computed tomography (PNS CT).
RESULTS
All patients had previously undergone Caldwell-Luc procedures. The most common symptom was pressure on the cheek. According to PNS CT, the maximum diameter of the involved orbital floor ranged from 0.7 to 3.1 cm (mean 1.46 cm) and the involved orbital area ranged from 0.35 to 4.23 cm2 (mean 1.87 cm2). All patients underwent only endoscopic marsupialization without orbital reconstruction. Postoperatively, all patients showed no recurrence of symptoms or required revision surgery.
CONCLUSION
Endoscopic marsupialization without reconstruction of the orbital floor could be considered as a first treatment option for postoperative cheek cyst combined with orbital floor defect.
