The medial part of the orbital region is a complex structure of several facial bones. It has attachments for support of the eye and lacrimal collecting system. In that, medial canthus is an important structure for esthetic and functional reasons. Medial canthal deformities can result from nasoethmoidal trauma, cancer resection, craniofacial exposure, congenital malposition, or age-related change. Various techniques have been used for medial canthal reconstruction, specifically to achieve bony fixation of the medial canthal tendon. The surgical treatment of traumatic telecanthus remains one of the most challenging areas in facial reconstruction. Transnasal wiring has been one of the most commonly used methods to perform medial canthopexy. However, it is technically difficult and may cause damage to the contralateral orbital structures. Here, we present a case report of management of traumatic telecanthus by medial canthopexy in an 11-year-old female patient using titanium miniplate.
