When orbital floor fractures occur, its reduction is necessary in most cases to prevent ocular dystopia, diplopia and entrapment of the inferior rectus muscle, that leads to problems in upwardgaze. Closed and open techniques have been described, with a wide range of results. Without a doubt, open techniques are used more frequently, as they provide greater operational control and visibility. However, closed techniques are executed at a lower cost and with less postoperative sequelae. The aim of this article is to describe what the authors consider, the most conservative method to reduce orbital floor fractures, by using the catheter ballooning technique without performing the Caldwell Luc access or any other surgical approach than an inferior meatal antrostomy to insert a Foley catheter into the maxillary sinus and fill it with 10 - 15 mL of normal saline.[Full Text Article]
