The keystone for successful reconstruction of the medial canthal area is adequate positioning of the medial canthal complex to maintain proper intercanthal distance and apposition of the lids to the globe. This requires an understanding of the dynamics of the tripartite insertion of the MCT and its relationship to the medial orbital wall. We have previously described a technique for transnasal wiring based on anatomic studies that is anatomically and physiologically precise and that is applicable to a variety of clinical situations. Soft-tissue problems need to be dealt with on an individual basis weith grafts, flaps, or a combination of these modalities.
