Orbital fractures with conspicious enophthalmos or continuous diplopia should be repaired surgically. From June 1984 to March 1991, 22 patients with orbital fracture were repaired with silastic sheets. Of the 22 patients, there were 12 cases of inferior wall fracture, 4 cases of medial wall fracture, 5 cases of inferior and medial wall fracture, and 1 case of lateral wall fracture. The age ranged from 7 to 41 years (average 20 years). Seventeen were males and five were females. The duration from receving trauma to operation was from one day to six months (average 37 days). After the follow'up period of 6 to 74 months (average 18.8 months), most of the patients showed improvement of diplopia and decreased enophthalmos (average 1.4mm) with good cosmesis, except in the 2 severe fracture cases of the posterior portion of the orbital floor without serious complications.
