Since the advent of endoscopic sinus surgery, indications for this technique have expanded from the treatment of inflammatory sinus disease to disorders of the orbit and skull base. The excellent visualization and illumination provided by high-resolution endoscopes are ideal for removal of the medial orbital wall; particularly in the region of the orbital apex. Endoscopic orbital decompression has become the preferred method of treatment for many patients with the orbital manifestations of Graves’ disease.
