Resumen

MARTINS-BUENO, Patricia et al. Extra-oral implants used for the rehabilitation of oculo-palpebral deformities in oncology patients. Retrospective study with 14 cases. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.2, pp.49-54. ISSN 2173-9161.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.maxilo.2017.06.002.

Objectives:

To evaluate the success rate of the implants and the survival rate of the eyelid prosthesis, as well as the quality of the peri-implant soft tissue.

Material and method:

A retrospective study was conducted, after approval of the Ethics Committee, using the medical records of all cancer patients with orbital deformities, and who received implants for rehabilitation with eyelid prosthesis, between the period 2003 to 2015. Two outcome variables were considered for the study: the success rate of the implants and the survival rate of the eyelid prosthesis. Data were analysed using the Kaplan-Meier test.

Results:

A total of 33 extra-oral implants were installed in 14 patients. The success rate of the implants was 96.9%, and the survival rate of the eyelid prosthesis was 92.3% at 2 years.

Conclusions:

The rehabilitation of the orbital region with extra-oral implants is a safe, reliable and predictable technique to restore the facial aesthetics of the patient and improve their quality of life.
