Abstract

General principles provide the framework for eyelid and periorbital reconstruction following tumor excision. Eyelid tumors involving the medial canthus region and/or lacrimal system add to the complexity of reconstructive planning. The nature of the tumor, patient and tissue factors, and surgeon preference guide repair design choices. Reconstructive considerations and options following medial canthal tumor resection are described.
