Abstract: Reconstructive procedures were used on 14 patients who had undergone orbital exenteration and radiotherapy for malignant tumours. All patients were tumour free after a follow-up of between 5 and 18 years. Reconstruction was carried out in 3 stages. in the first operation the orbit was filled, in the second the orbital rims and eyelids were shaped, and in the third a cavity for a static eye prosthesis was created. Critical assessment of results showed that the first stage alone produced a marked improvement in appearance and occluded existing fistulae. the subsequent procedures improved aesthetic results further. Difficulties were encountered from retraction of the tissues and insufficient tissue mobility.
