Can Bone Cement Be Used For Lateral Orbital Rim Augmentation?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a question for about lateral orbital rim rimmorbital augmentation using bone cement. Does it work and could you do that please.

A: Bone cement is very hard to place in a complete and smooth manner at the lateral orbital rim through a small eyelid incision. It is not a question as to whether it can be done but whether that is a good technique to do so.
