• Several technical modifications to the originally described medial maxillectomy are discussed that enhance orbital retraction, nasolacrimal drainage system reconstruction, and orbital content reapproximation to the surrounding bony cage. The application of these techniques simplifies the procedure and enhances the original goal, ie, better visualization of the posterior part of the specimen intended for removal.
