    The healing of orbital floor defects with and without residual periosteum, supported by a Foley catheter balloon, was studied. When the periosteum was present, osteoblastic activity was already occurring by the end of the first week, and complete orbital floor formation had taken place by three weeks. When the periosteum was totally removed, the healing orbit formed a fibrous sheet over the balloon surface.
