Orbital Compartment Syndrome
Return to Session
Dr. Jennifer Renz, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (Presenter)
Orbital compartment syndrome is an ophthalmic emergency that can lead to irreversible vision loss, but may be effectively treated with prompt recognition and expedient lateral canthotomy and cantholysis. It is thus important to thoroughly know the signs and symptoms, understand the details of treatment, and facilitate a good working relationship with our Emergency Medicine colleagues, who are often the first to evaluate and treat these patients.
