Endoscopic intranasal orbital decompression in the course of Graves’ orbitopathy
Thyroid Researchvolume 6, Article number: A66 (2013)
The authors present the endoscopic intranasal orbital decompression, one of the surgical techniques used for orbital decompression. It can be applied for various indications. The most common indications are: maxillo-facial trauma, orbital haemorrhage, subperiorbital abscess as the complication of sinusitis, optic neuropathy, thyroid-associated orbitopathy (Graves’ orbitopathy). The authors conclude that the endoscopic transnasal orbital decompression is a valuable and safe operational technique for patients requiring orbital decompression.
