Because the anatomic reduction appeared to preserve the intercanthal distance and the fractured segments, and given the preoperative stability of the medial canthus bilaterally, we felt that the medial canthus did not require a formal transnasal canthopexy.
During our intraoperative assessment, we used the contralateral medial canthus along with the anterior and posterior lacrimal crests, the frontoethmoid suture line, and the anterior ethmoid artery as our guide to the correct placement of our new canthus, thereby following commonly accepted techniques for transnasal canthopexy.
On postoperative day 5, a lateral canthopexy was performed to resuspend the lower lid, and the patient was sent home.
