Modified corncrib (inverted T) procedure with Quickert suture for repair of involutional entropion.
Ophthalmology. 1997 Mar; 104(3):504-7.O

Abstract

PURPOSE

The purpose of the study was to determine long-term results of involutional entropion repair by a modified corncrib (inverted T) procedure with a Quickert suture.

METHODS

A retrospective review of consecutive patients with involutional entropion who underwent repair by a modified corncrib procedure from January 1986 to July 1994 was performed. A full-thickness basedown triangle (corncrib) excised at the lateral limbus corrects horizontal laxity and everts the eyelid margin. The stem of the T is represented by the vertical closure of the eyelid margin and the tarsus. The top of the T is represented by the horizontal wound at the lower tarsal border after excision of an ellipse of skin and preseptal orbicularis muscle medial and lateral. The resultant horizontal scar prevents overriding of preseptal over pretarsal orbicularis oculi muscle. A translid double-armed Quickert suture preplaced 2 to 3 mm lateral to the punctum plicates the dehisced lower eyelid retractors and also prevents overriding of preseptal over the pretarsal orbicularis muscle. This suture pierces the conjunctival cul-de-sac and exits the skin just anterior to the lashes.

RESULTS

In 63 eyelids of 59 patients (4 bilateral cases), there were no failures with a median follow-up of 49.3 months. Complications were minimal.

CONCLUSIONS

The modified corncrib (inverted T) procedure is performed through a single surgical wound, requires minimal surgical dissection, and provides excellent long-term results.
