5Placement of additional plates

Properly adapted orbital rim plate

Placement of third plate

When looking through the lower eyelid incision, the orbital rim plate should be properly adapted. Use a minimum of a 5-hole plate with the extra hole spanning the fracture line. Reconfirm that the lateral orbital wall, and other reference points have been properly reduced prior to placing this plate. A minimum of two screws should be placed on each side of the fracture.
