Lateral Tarsoplasty for Managing Ectropion and Laxity of the Lower Eyelid.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 03;88(1s Suppl 1):S62-S67

From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital.

Background: The most challenging complication associated with lower blepharoplasty is ectropion, and the traditional lateral canthopexy or canthoplasty procedure may carry the risk of eyelid malposition or subsequent chemosis. We propose lateral tarsoplasty with a detailed description of the techniques to treat and even prevent ectropion by not involving the medial or lateral canthal ligament so as to avoid complications.

Materials And Methods: Lower eyelid laxity was analyzed with the snap-back test and distraction test before surgery. Read More

Eyelid Chemical Burns: A Multidisciplinary And Challenging Approach.

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2021 Dec;34(4):312-318

Department of Plastic Surgery and Burn Treatment, Percy Military Hospital, Clamart, France.

During second- and third-degree eyelid sulfuric acid burns, many surgeons prefer to wait until primary wound separation occurs before grafting. However, this approach may miss the chance to recover the eyelids and can cause ectropion, resulting in delayed eyeball healing with exposure keratitis. We propose that early eyelid release and grafting makes a significant difference in long-term outcomes and improves eyeball healing. Read More
