MEDPOR Oculoplastic surgery

Overview

Since 1985, MEDPOR Porous Polyethylene Implants have provided surgeons with an expanding range of options for reconstruction and augmentation. MEDPOR is a biocompatible, porous polyethylene material. The interconnecting, omni-directional pore structure promotes fibrovascular in-growth and integration of the patient’s tissue.

Clinical evidence

Objective
To determine the safety and efficacy of using porous high-density polyethylene (PHDPE) in the repair of orbital defects.

Design
Retrospective case series.

Setting
Academic tertiary care trauma center. Patients One hundred seventy patients with orbital defects requiring surgical repair. Intervention Orbital defect repair with PHDPE. Main Outcome Measure Our review documents surgical results and complications associated with the use of PHDPE.

Results
There was a 6.4% complication rate associated with the use of PHDPE. The infection rate was 1.8%. The persistent orbital malposition rate was 3.5%. The extrusion rate was 0%.

Conclusions
This report represents the largest case series in the literature using PHDPE for orbital reconstructions. The use of PHDPE resulted in a low complication rate and excellent functional and cosmetic reconstructive results. Because of our success with the use of PHDPE, we have changed our clinical practice to minimize the use of autologous graft material, thereby eliminating donor site morbidity in cases involving orbital reconstruction.
