Abstract

A 66-year-old man with silent sinus syndrome, resulting in progressive enophthalmos and subclinical chronic maxillary sinusitis, presented after several failed attempts at reconstruction with conventional methods. A free fibula osteoseptocutaneous flap was used to recreate the orbital floor, obliterate the maxillary sinus, and augment the periorbital contour deformity in a single stage. This is a novel approach for the treatment of Silent Sinus Syndrome in a single stage.
