Abstract

To present our experience of removing middle to deep orbital tumors using a combination of minimally invasive soft tissue approaches, sometimes under local anesthesia. Methods. In this retrospective case series, 30 patients 13 males and 17 females underwent tumor removal through eyelid crease 17 eyes, conjunctival nine eyes, lateral canthal two eyes, and transcaruncular two eyes approaches. All tumors were located in the posterior half of the orbit. Six cases were removed under monitored anesthesia care with local block, and 24 were under general anesthesia. Results. The median range age and follow-up duration were 48.5 31–87 years old and 24.5 4–375 weeks, respectively. Visual acuity and ocular motility showed improvement or no significant change in all but one patient at the latest followup. Confirmed pathologies revealed cavernous hemangioma 15 cases, pleomorphic adenoma 5 cases, solitary fibrous tumor 4 cases, neurofibroma 2 cases, schwannoma 2 cases, and orbital varix 1 case. None of the patients experienced recurrence. Conclusions. Creating a bony marginotomy increases intraoperative exposure of the deep orbit but adds substantial time and morbidity. Benign orbital tumors can often be removed safely through small soft-tissue incisions, without bone removal and under local anesthesia.
