Abstract

Purpose: To provide data on types of lesions that require orbital exenteration and discuss our experience with exenteration, emphasizing the eyelid-sparing technique. Methods. The records were reviewed on all patients who underwent orbital exenteration by the senior author and his colleagues. The underlying disease, method of exenteration, healing times, complications, cosmetic outcome, local tumor control, and patient survival were analyzed. Results: Of 56 orbital exenterations, 47 were done by eyelid-sparing technique and 9 by eyelid-sacrificing technique. The 9 tumors of eyelid origin that required exenteration included basal cell carcinoma (4), sebaceous gland carcinoma (3), squamous cell carcinoma (1), and melanoma (1). Four of theeyelid lesions were managed by the eyelid-sparing technique and 5 by the eyelid-sacrificing method. The 24 tumors of conjunctival origin included melanoma (20) and squamous cell carcinoma (4). The eyelid-sparing method was used in 22 of the 24 cases. The 10 primary orbital lesions included melanoma(3), malignant lacrimal gland tumor (3), a rhabdoid tumor, meningioma, Wegener's granulomatosis, and aspergillosis. The eyelid-sparing method was used in 8 of the 10 cases. Among intraocular tumors were uveal melanomas (10) and retinoblastoma (1). The eyelid sparing method was used in all 11. With the eyelid-sparing technique, the mean time from exenteration to wound healing and readiness for a prosthesis was 4 weeks (median, 2 weeks; range, 2 to 24 weeks). With the eyelid-sacrificing technique, the mean time was 68 weeks (median, 34 weeks; range, 2 to 340 weeks). Complications were few and cosmetic results were satisfactory. Local tumor control with exenteration was achieved in 53 of 56 cases, but metastasis occurred in 11 of 20 cases of conjunctival melanoma (55%) and in 6 of 10 patients with uveal melanoma (60%). Metastasis has developed in none of the 3 patients with malignant epithelial tumors of lacrimal gland origin. Conclusions. Orbital exenteration is an appropriate procedure for orbital involvement by unresectable malignant tumors of the eyelids, conjunctiva, intraocular structures, and orbit. In most of these cases, including about half of tumors originating in the eyelids, an eyelid-sparing exenteration can be used to achieve more rapid healing.
