Surgical solutions for the reconstruction of the lower eyelid: canthotomy and lateral cantholisis for full-thickness reconstruction of the lower eyelid.
In Vivo. 2013 Jan-Feb; 27(1):141-5.V

Abstract

The lower eyelid is the most common site of tumors of the orbital region, usually of basocellular skin carcinoma, whose incidence is increasing with population aging in Western countries. The treatment must achieve the complete removal of the neoplasm in order to prevent recurrences, thus requiring eyelid and periocular reconstruction. Several techniques are described for eyelid defect reconstruction, aiming for direct suture eased by flaps, or considering the use of grafts. We report our experience with 22 patients operated on for basocellular carcinoma of the lower eyelid, for wich defects were repaired by means of a full-thickness reconstruction using a canthotomy and lateral cantholisis; in 13 patients the canthotomy was combined with a lateral-canthal flap. We achieved good results in terms of orbital function and aesthetic outcome, as long as radical removal of the tumor without local recurrences was attainable.
