Orbital Fractures | Orbital Fractures Measurement: Intraoperative Versus Computed Tomography (CT) Scan

Orbital Fractures research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

Purpose to compare the orbital fracture size measured by orbital CT scan and compare it to the actual orbital fracture size intraoperatively in patients who needed surgical intervention to correct the fracture. Hypothesis: there is difference between the CT measure fracture size and the actual intraoperative size.

Who is eligible to participate?

Inclusion Criteria: - With orbital fracture (trauma) proved by CT scan and need operative repair. - Agree to participate. Exclusion Criteria: - Patients that refuse to be included in the study. - Under the age of 18 years. - CT not performed or not available. - Not qualified to sign the consent form.

Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?

Orbital Fractures

Study Interventions

Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.

Procedure:operative fracture size vs CT fracture sizecomparing actual intraoperative fracture size to the CT fracture size

Procedure:orbital fracture intraoperative measurementcomparing intraoperative fracture size to the CT orbital fracture size

Study Arms

Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.

Study Status

Unknown status

Start Date: December 2011

Completed Date: August 2017

Phase: N/A

Type: Interventional


Primary Outcome: Patients with orbital fractures that require surgical repair will have their fracture"s" size measured intraoperatively by a ruler and/or a caliper in millimeters and compare it to the size measured by the CT scan.
