BACKGROUND: Silicone rod is a commonly used synthetic suspension material in frontalis suspension surgery to correct blepharoptosis. The most challenging problem and a decisive drawback of the use of silicone rod is a considerable rate of ptosis recurrence after surgery. We examined patients with recurred ptosis and assessed the physical and micromorphological properties of implanted silicone rods to determine the causative mechanisms of recurred ptosis after frontalis suspension using silicone rod...

BACKGROUND: Involutional blepharoptosis is the most common type of acquired blepharoptosis. The etiology is believed to be the degeneration of the levator aponeurosis, and levator superioris muscle function was believed to be normal. However, there are a few studies analyzing levator function (LF) in involutional blepharoptosis. Our study aimed to access the LF abnormality in involutional blepharoptosis and analyze the correlation between LF and ptosis severity in involutional blepharoptosis in Taiwan...

Background In cases of blepharoptosis, the upper eyelid either cannot or can only be elevated insufficiently. The aetiology may be myogenic, aponeurotic, neurogenic, mechanical, or traumatic. The most common cause of congenital ptosis is myogenic, due to the improper development of the levator muscle. Methods Frontalis suspension operation as a technique of correction often uses silicone slings or fascia lata. On the basis of 3 cases, we present our method using palmaris longus tendon. Results In all 3 cases, intra- and postoperative courses were without adverse events and all cases are still relapse-free...

Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) is a multisystem disorder of mesenchymal origin. It is a form of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. The typical clinical features include pachydermia, cutis verticus gyrata, digital clubbing, and periostosis. Patients present with mechanical ptosis resulting from markedly thickened eye lids. Floppy eye lids have rarely been reported in association with PDP. We describe a rare case of PDP associated with ptosis and floppy eye lids in an adult male. Meibomian gland dysfunction was documented by meibography...

In adults, aponeurotic blepharoptosis is the most common type of ptosis. However, myogenic ptosis is the predominant cause, and bilateral aponeurotic ptosis is very rare among children. Here, we report a previously healthy 10-year-old Japanese girl with bilateral aponeurotic blepharoptosis who presented initially with bilateral blepharoptosis for about 4years. This case report shows that history taking and careful observation of the patient lead to an accurate diagnosis, and aponeurotic ptosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of bilateral blepharoptosis among children...

BACKGROUND: Conjunctiva-Müller muscle resection (CMMR) is a simple, effective, and predictable procedure for internal treatment of ptosis. OBJECTIVES: The authors determined contour symmetry of the upper eyelid following bilateral CMMR. METHODS: Thirty control participants (ie, without ptosis) and 44 patients with acquired bilateral blepharoptosis who underwent CMMR were evaluated in a prospective study. To assess symmetry of lid contour, distances from midpupil to the upper eyelid (ie, MPLDs) were determined radially at intervals of 15° (total, 180°) along the palpebral fissure, and MPLDs at each angle were compared for right and left eyes...

Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is an autosomal-dominant, adult-onset disorder defined by blepharoptosis, dysphagia, and proximal muscle weakness. OPMD arises from heterozygous expansions of a trinucleotide (GCN) tract situated at the 5' region of the polyadenylate RNA binding protein 1 (PABPN1) gene. The frequency of a particular (GCN) expansion in a given population of patients with OPMD is largely influenced by the occurrence of founder mutations. Analysis of large groups of patients with OPMD from different ethnic origins will help to estimate the relative contribution of each expanded allele to the disease...

This case with unilateral complete blepharoptosis and slight limitation of upgaze as ocular findings due to midbrain infarction represents an unusual form of intra-axial oculomotor nerve involvement. A 65-year-old man was admitted with acute unilateral ptosis of the left eyelid and gait ataxia. He had chronic hypertension in the medical history. The neurologic examination revealed that he had a complete ptosis of the left eyelid, slight limitation of elevation in the left eye, bilateral dysmetria, and gait ataxia...

Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO) is a mitochondrial myopathy with slowly progressive, often symmetric blepharoptosis and limitation of ocular motility in all directions of gaze. The authors present an unusual case of CPEO that initially presented with the unique features of markedly asymmetric facial weakness and the lack of blepharoptosis. However, over the subsequent three decades, the patient developed progressive facial and eyelid dysfunction more consistent with a classical description of CPEO...

INTRODUCTION: Penetration of a bicycle brake handle into the orbit is a rare and serious type of trauma. Globe subluxation due to such trauma has not been previously reported. CASE PRESENTATION: A 10-year-old girl presented after falling from a bicycle, which resulted in the handbrake penetrating her right upper eyelid. On examination, the globe was subluxated anteriorly, there was no light perception, and the pupilla was fixed and dilated. Radiologic studies revealed orbitonasal fractures, hemorrhage, emphysema in the orbit and cranium, and rupture of the extraocular muscles...

Although we commonly observe eyebrow drooping during and after blepharoptosis surgery, it may not occur in some cases. After levator resection was performed in 47 patients (84 eyelids) with blepharoptosis, the eyebrow heights at the medial canthus, the center of the pupil, and the lateral canthus were measured using scanned photographs obtained preoperatively and 3 months postoperatively. In the 84 eyelids, after levator resection, the eyebrow position was lowered at the medial canthus in 76 patients (90%), at the center of the pupil in 75 (89%), and at the lateral canthus in 76 (90%)...
