This is a retrospective study of skeletal changes in 19 patients with corrected hypertelorism. A favorable outcome, defined as relapse less than 5 mm, occurred in patients with an average interorbital distance of 32 mm, whereas patients with an average interorbital distance of 40 mm tended to relapse over 5 mm. Neither age, interorbital configuration, nor diagnosis affected the stability of orbital translocation. At last evaluation (mean 6.7 years postoperatively), the mean interorbital distance was 22.4 mm in the favorable outcome group and 28.3 mm in the unfavorable category.
