Fibrin glue is widely used in ophthalmology for homeostasis and tissue recovery. It is commonly used in ocular surface surgeries such as pterygium removal and conjunctival lesions excision...
Comparison of the results of levator resection operation with the use of fixed sutures technique in which the levator muscle is approached through skin incision and the muscle shortened an...
to evaluate the surgical effect of levator aponeurosis resection Versus two point fixation levator aponeurosis Tucking for Congenital Ptosis
The purpose of the study is to characterize the levator ani structures (pubovaginalis, puboperinealis, puboanalis, puborectalis, and the iliococcygeous) using 3-D ultrasonography in nullip...
To date, fluorescence and narrow band imaging cystoscopy have been tested in many prospective within patient trials but only as an "add on" procedure. This results in a bias that does not ...
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of external levator advancement and Müller muscle-conjunctival resection in aponeurotic blepharoptosis repair.
The traditional technique for levator muscle resection includes a time-consuming dissection procedure that causes tissue trauma and swelling. The Putterman ptosis clamp has been popularly used in rece...
This study compares the use of a standard 7 mm resection length to a variable 4:1 ratio of resection length to desired elevation nomogram when performing Muller's muscle conjunctival resection surgery...

The resection or removal of the innervation of a muscle or muscle tissue.
Drooping of the upper lid due to deficient development or paralysis of the levator palpebrae muscle.
Corneal and conjunctival dryness due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women.

Fatty tissue composed of WHITE ADIPOCYTES and generally found directly under the skin (SUBCUTANEOUS FAT) and around the internal organs (ABDOMINAL FAT). It has less vascularization and less coloration than the BROWN FAT. White fat provides heat insulation, mechanical cushion, and source of energy.
