    By Thomas E. Johnson, MD
    Subspecialty Day 2012: Oculofacial Plastic Surgery

    In this presentation from the 2012 Annual Meeting, Dr. Thomas Johnson discusses a case of a man who was admitted to the ER with a large metallic foreign body inserted temporally in a proptotic right eye. Dr. Johnson discusses how to evaluate for cerebral vasculature and assess for intracranial bleeding in a transorbital intracranial injury, whether all orbital roof fractures require repair, and the most common complications in such injuries.
