The aim of this study is to report a case series of blowout fractures of the medial orbital wall that were treated endoscopically. Isolated fractures of the medial orbital wall are uncommon and can be asymptomatic. Various surgical methods for repairing medial orbital wall fractures have been described. The standard approach for the treatment of medial orbital wall fractures is the transcutaneous approach or the transconjunctival with retrocaruncular approach. In the last years, the attention on the use of minimally invasive techniques such as transnasal endoscopic approach is growing. This was a retrospective study of six cases completely managed endoscopically. In the presented case series, the endoscopic endonasal approach represented a safe and effective procedure for the reduction of medial wall orbital fractures.
