: To evaluate the effectiveness of a supraciliary approach for upper eyelid margin excisional biopsies.
: A retrospective, comparative case series. A 2-year review of medical records of patients who underwent the procedure was performed. Data collected included the dates and type of procedure(s), review of operative and pathology reports, dates of follow up, findings of clinical examination, review of photographs, and postoperative complications. The main outcome measure was to assess both the functional and aesthetic outcomes of the procedure.
: Six patients with a minimum of 3-month follow-up were included in the study. In each case, eyelid contour and function was preserved, and scarring was nearly unnoticeable. No postoperative complications occurred.
: The study demonstrates the effectiveness of this surgical approach and as an alternative to more common techniques.

The blepharoplasty flap is a relatively simple but under-recognized surgical technique for repairing defects that result from excision of broad-based lesions on the upper eyelid that lie between the e...
A 61-year-old woman presented with a slow-growing mass on the right upper eyelid. The hard, fixed, and nontender mass was apparent on the right upper eyelid. It was immobile, and it seemed to be adher...
A 66-year-old man developed a painless 2 mm to 3 mm recurrent nodule at the left upper eyelid margin. Excision disclosed a spindle cell lesion without frank atypia or mitotic activity growing in a twi...
Everolimus is a newer generation mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitor approved for immunosuppressive use in a number of advanced medical conditions. The authors report a unique case of persistent e...
The purpose of this study was to present our evaluation of the feasibility of using a retroauricular approach for excision of benign upper neck mass lesions without assistance of an endoscopic or robo...
Topical bimatoprost has been shown to cause periorbital changes of soft tissue which are most pronounced when used directly onto the cornea for the treatment of glaucoma. Changes are prima...
We propose to develop an intraoperative handheld device for assessing surgical margins during Mohs surgery. The device technology is based on multimodal optical spectroscopy (MMS), combini...
This study is being undertaken to investigate the efficacy and safety of Juvista (given as an intradermal injection of 200ng/100µl per linear centimetre of wound margin) in the prevention...
This study will test whether XOPH5 ointment, applied once daily to the lower eyelids for 10 weeks, reduces the prominence of lower eyelid fat in adults with moderate to severe steatoblepha...
The purpose of this study is to show that addition of device use to a routine breast cancer tumor excision procedure is beneficial and assists the surgeon in correctly determining the exte...
Purulent infection of one of the sebaceous glands of Zeis along the eyelid margin (external) or of the meibomian gland on the conjunctival side of the eyelid (internal).
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
A sensory branch of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The ophthalmic nerve carries general afferents from the superficial division of the face including the eyeball, conjunctiva, upper eyelid, upper nose, nasal mucosa, and scalp.
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of a wide range of biomolecules, such as glycoalkaloids, glycoproteins, polysaccharides, and peptides. Positive and negative fast atom bombardment spectra are recorded on a mass spectrometer fitted with an atom gun with xenon as the customary beam. The mass spectra obtained contain molecular weight recognition as well as sequence information.
A mass spectrometry technique used for analysis of nonvolatile compounds such as proteins and macromolecules. The technique involves preparing electrically charged droplets from analyte molecules dissolved in solvent. The electrically charged droplets enter a vacuum chamber where the solvent is evaporated. Evaporation of solvent reduces the droplet size, thereby increasing the coulombic repulsion within the droplet. As the charged droplets get smaller, the excess charge within them causes them to disintegrate and release analyte molecules. The volatilized analyte molecules are then analyzed by mass spectrometry.
