Overview

The embedded mobile hydrogel methylmethacrylate („HYDRON“ Spofa) orbital implants introduced in the beginning of 70th years of 20th century was a new method to get good cosmetic effects after enucleation. At the Dept. of Ophthalmology of the Comenius University, Bratislava, the rejection rate of this type of orbital implants in the first years after enucleation (1971–1974) was only 16.8%. This technique was applied in patients after enucleation due to traumatic phtisis of the eye globe. Authors submit a case report of a female patient from the group of implanted mobile orbital implant HYDRON implanted in 1984. They analyze clinical features and histopathological findings after surgical removement 25 years after implantation.

Key words:
mobile orbital implants after enucleation, embedded mobile orbital implant from methylmethacrylate
