Approximately 300 patients presenting orbital blow-out fracture will be enrolled prospectively in this registry. All patients, surgically and nonsurgically treated as per standard (routine) of care will be followed-up (FU) within the registry for a period of 6 months.

Official Title

International, Multicenter, Prospective Registry to Collect Data on Orbital Fractures (OFx), Their Primary and Secondary Treatment and Outcome


Approximately 300 patients presenting with a displaced orbital fracture (OFx) in the floor and/or medial wall (blow-out fracture) will be enrolled prospectively in this registry. All patients, surgically and nonsurgical treated will be followed-up (FU) within the registry. FU period for all patients will include assessments post-treatment at 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months as corresponding with the local standard (routine) visit schedule at each participating clinic.

Data collection includes patient and fracture details, treatment details, functional, clinical and patient-reported outcomes and anticipated or procedure- and implant-related adverse events (ie, complications). Computer Tomography (CT) scans or Cone Beam-CT (CBCT) scans taken as per standard of care will be collected within the registry.
