    Spontaneous eyelid expansion after full thickness eyelid resection and direct closure.

    BJO, 2001, 85: 1450-1454.

      

    The authors undertook a study to disprove a previous belief viz. Direct closure of a large eyelid defect might distort the palpebral aperture and compromise lid function.

     

    Both eyes of a consecutive series of patients who had undergone one eyelid, full thickness eyelid resection, repaired by direct closure, were photographed.

     

    The palpebral apertures of both eyes were measured from the photographs by a masked observer.

     

    The authors stress that direct closure of large full thickness eyelid defects is possible in selected patients with excellent functional and cosmetic results.
