A very important anatomical detail concerns the venous space of the sinus cavernosus, connected to the rear of the SOF on the inferomedial side [134, 138]. The arachnoidal space of the temporal fossa connects more laterally to the SOF. A medially penetrating object through the SOF would, therefore, perforate the sinus cavernosus and possibly the a. carotis. A more laterally penetrating agent would end in the temporal lobe or between the medial temporal lobe and the lateral wall of the sinus cavernosus (Figure 23c).

Its volume is about 35 cc [135], of which only 7 cc (20%) are taken by the eyeball. The remaining 28 cc contain muscles, nerves, fat, glands and blood vessels [135]. The orbit can thus accommodate a relatively large foreign body without showing great disturbance of function [136, 137]. The eyeball is a strong elastic ball situated in a pool of fatty tissue, with a characteristic structure: it is well lobulated and easy to displace [135].
