Comparison Between Different Surgical Approaches for the Treatment of INVOLUTIONAL PTOSIS

2017-12-21 10:37:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Involutional ptosis is a known eyelid pathology in which the eyelid margin obscures part of the visual axis (MRD1).Patients usually complains of visual field disturbance, deterioration in quality of life and a poor cosmetic appearance.

In clinical practice, two main surgical approaches are performed to the repair of involutional ptosis:

1. anterior approach - skin incision and levator muscle insertion advancement.

2. posterior approach - eyelid reversion and tarsectomy Both approaches has its pro's and con's, but to this date, no solid evidence exists to prove which of these techniques is superior in manner of anatomical and functional results.

in this prospective study, patients with involutional ptosis will be randomized to each of surgical approaches groups, parameters concerning surgical and post surgical periods will be evaluated.

Eyelid Position Interdependence in Involutional Ptosis Patients Submitted to 10% Phenylephrine

The primary aim of this study is to quantify eyelid position changes in tested and opposite eyes in ptosis patients submitted to 1, 2 or 4 drops of 10% phenylephrine in one eye. The second...

The Type and Content of Collagen Fibers of The Levator Aponeurosis In Simple Congenital Blepharoptosis Patients.

The pathogenesis of congenital blepharoptosis remains controversial and most of the studies focused on the histologic changes of the levator muscle. However, thickening of the aponeurosis was reported...

A small incision technique for repairing involutional lower eyelid entropion.

The objective of this paper is to describe and review our experience with Goldberg's small incision technique for use with involutional entropion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

Drooping of the upper lid due to deficient development or paralysis of the levator palpebrae muscle.

A DNA repair enzyme that catalyzes DNA synthesis during base excision DNA repair. EC 2.7.7.7.

The repair of DOUBLE-STRAND DNA BREAKS by rejoining the broken ends of DNA to each other directly.

Repair of DNA DAMAGE by exchange of DNA between matching sequences, usually between the allelic DNA (ALLELES) of sister chromatids.
