SURGICAL ANATOMY AND USEFUL LANDMARKS OF THE INTRAORBITAL COURSE OF OCULOMOTOR NERVES (Abstract): Due to its narrow dimensions, the surgical approaches to the orbit and its content are one of the most challenging procedures and can be associated with a lot of vascular and nervous iatrogenic damages. The oculomotor, trochlear and abducens nerves are most likely to be injured, because of their tight relations with orbital walls, ophtalmic and internal carotid artery, superior ophtalmic vein, annular tendon and optic nerve. All of these elements and the ditances between them can be used as surgical landmarks for different orbital approaches. A throughout knowledge of these relations and the anatomy of the orbit are mandatory for a safe surgery in fields like neurosurgery and ophtalmology.
