PURPOSE: Our purpose was to assess our outcomes in involutional lower eyelid ectropion and entropion surgery after horizontal eyelid tightening by a modified tarsal strip technique. METHODS: A prospective study of 88 eyelids with ectropion and 96 with entropion was performed. Patients were randomly distributed into two groups: the control group included 90 eyelids (46 entropion and 44 ectropion) and the other group of 94 eyelids (50 entropion and 44 ectropion). The control group was treated with a conventional tarsal strip, whereas the second group underwent the same surgery except for a modified suture placement of the tarsal strip different in patients with ectropion and entropion...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Surgical treatments for the correction of congenital ptosis with poor levator function, including frontalis suspension or maximal levator resection, remain controversial. We evaluated the postoperative surgical and cosmetic outcomes after maximal levator resection for unilateral congenital ptosis with poor levator function. METHODS: A retrospective, interventional case series was performed. A total of 243 patients with 243 eyelids (210 unilateral and 33 bilateral asymmetric ptosis) who underwent unilateral maximal levator resection were included...

PurposeThe purpose of this study was to examine the surgical outcome of posterior layer advancement of the lower eyelid retractors (LER) with transcanthal canthopexy for involutional lower eyelid entropion.Patients and methodsFifty-one eyelids of 41 patients with involutional entropion and vertical and horizontal laxities that underwent posterior layer advancement of the LER with transcanthal canthopexy were retrospectively reviewed. As a control, we also reviewed previously reported data from 47 entropic eyelids of 37 patients with vertical and horizontal laxities that were successfully corrected using LER advancement and a lateral tarsal strip procedure...

BACKGROUND: Tarsoconjunctival flap advancement, or the Hughes procedure, is among the techniques of choice for reconstructing full-thickness lower eyelid defects so as to restore normal anatomy and function with the best possible cosmetic outcome. The purpose of this study is to report the outcome of a series of patients treated with a modified Hughes procedure following malignant tumor removal. METHODS: This retrospective study included 45 consecutive cases of modified Hughes procedures performed between January 2013 and October 2015...

The study aims to report the surgical outcome of a retractor redirection procedure for involutional entropion repair for Asians. The study included all cases diagnosed with involutional entropion and significant ocular irritation who presented from 2008 to 2012. Sixty-seven eyelids in 54 patients were included in this study. All cases were operated on by one surgeon and had a minimum of 12-months follow-up. Success was defined as cases showing no recurrence of entropion with forceful eyelid squeezing postoperatively...

Patients with anophthalmic or phthisis socket suffer from cosmetic problems. To resolve those problems, the authors present the surgical outcomes of deep superior sulcus (DSS) augmentation using acellular dermal matrix in patients with anophthalmic or phthisis socket. The authors retrospectively reviewed anophthalmic or phthisis patients who underwent surgery for DSS augmentation using acellular dermal matrix. To evaluate surgical outcomes, the authors focused on 3 aspects: the possibility of wearing contact prosthesis, the degree of correction of the DSS, and any surgical complications...

The aim of this study is to analyze the development of lower eyelid malposition following reconstruction of orbital fractures, in relation to the incisions used for access. A total of 198 surgical orbital floor reconstructions were performed in 175 patients between 2001 and 2011. Preoperative and postoperative presence of lower eyelid malposition of patients was reported. The types of incision used for access were as follows: approach via laceration (4.5%), via preexisting scar (16.2%), infraorbital (40.9%), subciliar (23...

Lower lid malposition is a common yet demanding problem that both functional and cosmetic eyelid surgeons will face. It encompasses a spectrum of lower eyelid conditions ranging from lower lid retraction to frank ectropion and entropion. The causes of lower lid malposition are numerous, and the problem can be challenging to correct even for experienced surgeons. Proper treatment of lower lid malpositioning requires a clear understanding of the lower eyelid anatomy, careful preoperative assessment, and appropriate selection of surgical and nonsurgical interventions to have a successful outcome...

PURPOSE: To examine whether an inward upper eyelid push on the lower eyelid margin during eyelid closure is involved in involutional lower eyelid entropion. METHODS: This prospective observational study included 34 sides from 27 patients with involutional lower eyelid entropion.

OBJECTIVE: Transconjunctival approach to the lower one-third of the orbit is commonly used to avoid transcutaneous incisions when surgical access is needed. A lateral canthotomy is used in conjunction with this approach if increased lateral exposure is required. A major disadvantage to lateral canthotomy is difficulty in resuspension of the lateral canthal tendon, which can lead to unaesthetic outcomes. The present report describes two cases of lateral tarsal incision or, as we decided to call it, the "lateral tarsotomy" technique...

Congenital tarsal kink syndrome is a rare type of upper eyelid entropion associated with keratitis due to trichiasis. The authors describe a new technique for treatment of congenital horizontal tarsal kink syndrome by means of absorbable everting sutures via a posterior approach. A neonate was referred to eye clinic with right eye redness and corneal opacity since birth. Clinical examination revealed inversion of the eyelid margin with a horizontal kink in the tarsal plate and corneal ulcer. Surgical treatment resulted in successful correction of upper eyelid malpositioning, rapid resolution of the corneal ulcer with excellent anatomical outcome, visual development and cosmesis, with no evidence of recurrence after 6 years...
