Abstract

We report here the successful removal of a retrobulbar metallic foreign body in a patient with penetrating ocular trauma by a transconjunctival approach and combination management with C-arm fluoroscopy and extraocular muscle severance. A 37-year-old man sustained a penetrating injury to the right eye while using an iron hammer. Initial slitlamp examination revealed a corneoscleral laceration, iridocele, anterior chamber collapse, and a traumatic cataract. Visual acuity in the right eye was limited to the perception of hand motion. Computed tomography revealed an orbital foreign body in the retrobulbar area. The patient underwent corneoscleral suturing, severance of extraocular muscles, removal of the foreign body with guidance by C-arm fluoroscopy, pars plana lensectomy, and pars plana vitrectomy. Combination management with C-arm fluoroscopy and extraocular muscle severance may thus be a suitable approach to the removal of a retrobulbar metallic foreign body.
