Frontalis Suspension in Severe Blepharoptosis Using Temporalis Faascia and Tutoplast Dure.
Chan Yeong Heo, Rong Min Baek, Se Min Baek
Patients with a poor or total absence of levator function require correction of their ptosis by a sling procedure. The aim of the procedure is to utilize the action of the frontalis muscle to mechanically raise a droopy eyelid Frontalis suspension procedure using a temporalis fascia or Tutoplast Dura was performed on 36 ptotic eyelids of 23 patients(age range 2-37 years) with a poor or absent levator function. The author used a surgical technique based on a modified Fox`s method. Satisfactory results were achieved in 42 lids according to the criteria of Jordan after an average follow-up of 23 months. No serious complication was seen immediately postoperative and during the follow-up period. Temporalis fascia and Tutoplast Dura appear to be effective and safe alternative sling materials for frontalis suspension surgery.
