Ethmoidal approach

The ethmoidal approach allows for excellent visibility in the area of the medial canthus. Unfortunately, it commonly results in a very obvious scar contraction band (web) in the medial canthal area.

This medial canthal band is particularly obvious in younger patients. Therefore, we do not recommend the use of this approach except in circumstances where the other common approaches are inadequate.
