Abstract

Orbital injuries from endoscopic sinus surgery are rare but potentially catastrophic. The most feared complications from sinus surgery include blindness and diplopia. Recent publications note that the rate of orbital complications has decreased when compared with the past, reflecting the use of endoscopes, better technology, and improved training. The sinus surgeon must have mastery over the procedure she or he plans to undertake and be aware of the specific potential for orbital injury given the patient's anatomy and disease. The sinus surgeon must also have expert knowledge of the appropriate and immediate medical and surgical management of orbital complications.
