Objective To evaluate the clinical effects of bone graft from the mandible in repairing orbital floor defects. Methods Bone grafts from the mandible were used to treat 11 cases of orbital floor defects and followed up for 6-12 months. Results The surgical incisions healed primarily in all 11 patients. The orbital floor structure was restored. No vision loss, limited eye movement, implant infection, or resorption were observed postoperatively, and no complications occurred in the supply area. Conclusion Bone grafts from the mandible were an ideal material to repair orbital floor defects.

Key words: chin of the mandible, orbital fracture, bone defect, reconstruction
