Sumario: Classically, orbit dissection approach is done trans cranially, hindering mobilization and complete visualization of the total content of the orbit. By a transmaxillary approach with orbital floor removal and bilateral cantholysis, performed with just a basic dissection kit, a high speed rotation tool and magnifying lenses, the Anatomy Department of the University of Costa Rica presents in this study a new proposal for detailed visualization of all the anatomical structures contained within the orbit, based on a modification of the Caldwell-Luc surgical technique. This approach must be reserved only for the academic study of the orbit and not as a surgical technique due to the complications already known that opened transmaxilary approaches, such as Caldwell-Luc’s provide ti patients.
