Risk of Dry Eye Post Different Surgeries for Blepharoptosis Repair

2015-07-20 11:52:40 | BioPortfolio


Blepharoptosis, inferodisplacement of the upper eyelid, can be congenital or acquired. Acquired Blepharoptosis is usually aponeurotic, due to stretching or disinsertion of the levator aponeurosis. Treatment is surgical and can be performed by three common procedures - Levator advancement, Müller's muscle-conjunctival resection procedure and White line advancement. A number of reports inspected the possibility that Blepharoptosis repair procedures may cause deterioration in dry eye status. The investigators would like to assess whether there is a difference between the different procedures in their influence on dry eye status.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. Filamentary keratitis or erosion of the conjunctival and corneal epithelium may be caused by these disorders. Sensation of the presence of a foreign body in the eye and burning of the eyes may occur.

A group of muscles attached to the SOFT PALATE (or velum) and the PHARYNX. They include the superior constrictor, the PALATOPHARYNGEUS, the levator veli palatini muscle, and the muscularis uvulae. This sphincter is situated between the oral and nasal cavities. A competent velopharyngeal sphincter is essential for normal speech and swallowing.

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.
