September 1, 2003

Kansas City, MO-The combination of endoscopic medial wall and floor and transcutaneous lateral orbital decompression used to treat Graves' orbitopathy has a low risk of morbidity, but may not result in as much anatomic retropulsion of the globe as other methods, according to W. Abraham White, a medical student at the University of Missouri-Kansas, Kansas City, MO. White presented an analysis of results achieved by one otolaryngologist and one ophthalmologist using this method.
