Orbital floor fracture is a common facial injury associated with potential anatomical and functional complications. Since it was first described by Smith and Regan1 in 1957, the management of orbital fractures has continuously evolved. However, data on postoperative outcomes are lacking, and single-institution studies limit the applicability of their results. The objective of this study was to characterize the epidemiologic, surgical, and hospitalization patterns and postoperative complications in patients undergoing repair of orbital floor fracture from a national database.
