Treatment of orbital floor fracture is a subject of great interest in maxillofacial surgery. Many materials have been described for its reconstruction.In this article, the authors report a case of a patient who, 7 years from a previous orbital floor fracture and treatment with silastic sheet, presented herself to their clinic for the failure of the material used for its reconstruction and a skin fistula.Orbital floor repair with silastic sheet is an old method that no one uses anymore, but we still observe cases of late complications with this material. So a fine knowledge of silastic sheet complications is needed for young surgeons.The authors report the case and perform a literature review about the use of more modern biomaterials for orbital floor reconstruction. © 2013 by Mutaz B.
