The purpose of this article is to describe the different reconstruction techniques for anophthalmic sockets. In preparing the anopthalmic socket for prosthesis. Enucleation and evisceration introduce the anophthalmic socket syndrome, which consists of enophthalmos due to orbital tissue shrinkage. Following enucleation or evisceration surgery, the anatomy and physiology of the orbit are changed. These changes affect not only the cosmetic appearance of.

This process is physiological, but can be accelerated if the graft is injured or poorly vascularized. All of anophhalmic four patients who underwent the combined procedure dermis-fat graft with mucous-membrane graft had an inadequate fornix, intraoperatively following the dermis-fat graft.
Postoperatively, inorder improve orbital volume and upper and lower anophrhalmic grooves, hyaluronic acid can be injected into the socket or a fat graft may be used to restore volume of the cavity and of the sulcus, providing a satisfactory aesthetic result. In the Lateral Cutaneous Incision. In fascia lata technique, the conjunctiva was minimally manipulated in contrary to the long conjunctival incision and deep tissue dissection in conjunctival fixation procedure.
Intraoperatively 3 deep skin incisions were made with one end of the fascia strip secured to the periosteum of the inferior orbital margin. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Health Library Explore our health library for more information about conditions and treatments. Socke of the 13 exposed implants underwent defect-closure intervention by means of an amniotic membrane graft sockeet and tarsoconjunctival graft one before the secondary dermis-fat graft.
In this case the prosthesis should be larger but this cause discomfort and reduced motility.
Thirty of our subjects were able to wear the eye prosthesis. These procedures are used only when absolutely necessary. The commonest sockst cases clinical presentation to indicate the dermis-fat graft was an exposed implant mean width of 7.
But chronic mucoid conjunctival discharge and skin erosion with infection necessitated early removal of the externalized sutures and increased the risk of recurrence [ 4 ] Figure 9. Current trends in managing the anophthalmic socket after primary enucleation and evisceration. The most common indications for a dermis-fat graft were extrusion and large exposure.
Whether you’re crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins. Anophtualmic conditions that may cause discharge are poor prosthetic fit, extruding implant See Figures 3a and bpyogenic granuloma in the socket, excessively deep fornices or nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
In preparing the anopthalmic socket for prosthesis fitting we have several options: We will discuss below some types of orbital implants used after evisceration or enucleation.

Although this approach solves the patient’s health problem, by changes in physiognomy it can have a devastating effect on their perception and self-confidence. View at Google Scholar J. After follow-up period, data were collected and analyzed using SPSS statistical program version 19 for windows and a statistically significant level was considered when value was less than 0.
The mucosal graft was dissected and defatted as thin as possible using Westcott scissors. The superior sulcus should be checked for deepening and symmetry with the opposite side See Figure 1.
Early skin necrosis as a complication of deepening sutures. C After the eye prosthesis wearing at 6-year-postoperative dermis-fat graft.
If the ptosis is to be addressed surgically the ophthalmologist should keep in mind that levator strength may be underestimated. Discharge samples from four infected exposure-related implants were sent for culture.
Dermis-fat graft as a movable implant within the muscle cone. The success rate of a primary dermis-fat graft in our study was low because six patients had a severe conjunctival defect initially and a high risk for further zocket retraction. Invented by Professor R.

History The Chinese possibly first performed enucleation as early as BC, but the first report was by Johannes Lange in The depth of the inferior conjunctival fornix was measured in mm at the center of the lower eyelid in all participants in the control group and in patient subgroups.
It offers good orbital volume, very good motility and very good integration. With the prosthetic in place the patient should be evaluated for enophthalmos or prosthetic malposition. In the Medial Cutaneous Incision. Management of the shallow inferior fornix in contracted socket is usually done by deepening sutures following mucous membrane graft to avoid lower lid entropion [ 3 ].
Enucleation with a primary dermis-fat graft was performed in six patients — one suffered a blast injury, one a chemical anoophthalmic, one a severe corneal ulcer with scleral melting, one advanced glaucoma with multiple surgeries, one necrotizing anophthalmicc, and sockeg last one had an unknown cause.
