  • A theory of unified pathogenesis for tarsal ectropion and involutional entropion. [Journal Article]
    J Fr Ophtalmol. 2020 Jun 23 [Online ahead of print]Imbert P
  • Tarsal ectropion and involutional entropion are two frequent age-related lower eyelid malpositions with a mirrored clinical presentation. The recent anatomical confirmation of two layers of lower eyelid retractors makes it possible to conceive of the role of each of these layers in the stability of the two palpebral lamellae and their involvement in the pathogenesis of these two malpositions. Thi…
  • Successful Correction of Ichthyosis-related Ectropion by Autografts. [Journal Article]
    Dermatol Ther. 2020 Jun 16 [Online ahead of print]KaradaĞ R, Sevimli N, … Wollina U
  • Ectropion is a rather frequent complication of ichthyosis with negative functional and esthetic impact. Lid surgery can provide significant improvement. We report on a series of four ichthyosis patients with ongoing bilateral eye problems despite intense medical treatment (mean age 27.8 ± 14.1 years). All patients suffered from lagophthalmos. Two of the patients had only lower lid ectropion. In t…
  • White matter abnormality in Jacobsen syndrome assessed by serial MRI. [Case Reports]
    Brain Dev. 2020 Jun 04 [Online ahead of print]Fujino S, Yoshihashi H, … Miyama S
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggested that the WMA in the present patient were due to chronic white matter edema associated with a deletion in the 11q terminal region of HEPACAM/GlialCAM, a causative gene for megalencephalic leukoencephalopathy with subcortical cysts type 2B (MLC2B). As with some of MLC2B patients, the WMA in the present patient improved over time. The present report is the first to document dramatic changes in WMA in JS visualized by serial MRI examinations from the neonatal period through early childhood.The findings of the present study suggested that WMA in JS are due to chronic white matter edema associated with HEPACAM/GlialCAM deletion and show gradual improvement over time, as seen in some MLC2B patients.
  • Anterior lamellar deficit ectropion management. [Journal Article]
    Eye (Lond). 2020 Jun 03 [Online ahead of print]Vahdani K, Thaller VT
  • CONCLUSIONS: Anterior lamellar deficit ectropion occurs in the absence of overt scarring. It is crucial to fully address both the horizontal laxity and the anterior lamellar deficit associated with such ectropion to minimise the risks of early failure and recurrence. MBP combined with FTSG or MMCF is a safe and effective treatment for such 'cicatricial ectropion' and has a low early recurrence rate.
  • StatPearls: Blepharoplasty Subciliary Approach [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Bhoutekar Priti P Government medical college, Chandrapur Winters Ryan R Ochsner Health System BOOK
  • Lower blepharoplasty is performed for many reasons, although the commonest presentations include a feeling of "looking old" or "looking tired." Other complaints may include "baggy eyelids," "swollen eyelids, worse in the morning," and "my photographs make me look tired." Some surgeons have noticed an increase in facial cosmetic consultations they attribute to the omnipresence of social media.[1] …
  • Treatment of periocular basal cell carcinoma with neoadjuvant vismodegib. [Case Reports]
    Am J Ophthalmol Case Rep. 2020 Sep; 19:100755.Su MG, Potts LB, Tsai JH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although addition study is required regarding Vismodegib as a primary or adjuvant therapeutic approach to periorbital basal cell carcinoma, this case illustrates the potential usefulness of this drug as an option in this context. This case provides information that may help the comprehensive ophthalmologist or oculoplastic specialist in counseling patients with locally advanced periorbital basal cell carcinoma.
  • Oculoplastic considerations for refractive procedures. [Journal Article]
    Curr Opin Ophthalmol. 2020 Jul; 31(4):241-246.Denisova K, Barmettler A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Eyelid and orbital conditions that predispose to dry eye syndrome and refractive changes should be evaluated and optimized prior to keratorefractive surgery. Patients electing to have oculoplastic surgery, like ptosis repair, should be fully healed prior to any refractive surgery to allow both refractive changes and eyelid positions to stabilize prior to the refractive surgery.
  • Postoperative Quality of Life in Oculoplastic Patients. [Journal Article]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2020 Apr 30 [Online ahead of print]Seo ST, Sundar G, Young SM
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is a lack of published evidence concerning postoperative quality of life in patients with certain oculoplastic conditions such as brow ptosis, entropion, ectropion, epiblepharon, and orbital wall fracture. There is a need to standardize the quality of life data collection tools and scoring systems to allow better comparison and scrutiny of the current literature.
  • A Modified Hughes Flap for Correction of Refractory Cicatricial Lower Lid Retraction With Concomitant Ectropion. [Journal Article]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2020 Apr 06 [Online ahead of print]Chen Y, Al-Sadah Z, … Lee BW
  • CONCLUSIONS: The technique of using a modified Hughes flap to reconstruct above the tarsus with excision of the scarred lid margin was effective in correcting refractory cicatricial lower lid retraction. This procedure can be considered in multioperative cases in which traditional techniques for lower lid retraction repair have failed. Reconstructing a new lid margin reduces the risk of recicatrization and suboptimal results.
  • The use of anterior segment optical coherence tomography in evaluation of punctal stenosis. [Journal Article]
    J Fr Ophtalmol. 2020 Jun; 43(6):494-499.Alturkistany W, Delmas J, Robert PY
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study is obviously limited by its small study population. The decision to resort to surgery was made by 2 different surgeons. There was thus no homogeneity in terms of stenosis. There is difficulty in everting the lid without applying pressure to the globe or changing the punctal or canalicular morphology. This maneuver was difficult in the postoperative setting after ectropion repair.Our study shows that AS-OCT can be a rapid, non-invasive method in diagnosing punctal stenosis. Further studies are necessary to assess the use of AS-OCT in punctal stenosis.
  • Ectropion in Dermatologic Surgery: Exploration and Reconstruction Techniques. [Journal Article]
    Actas Dermosifiliogr. 2020 Apr; 111(3):229-235.Fernández Canga P, Varas Meis E, … Rodríguez Prieto MÁ
  • Ectropion, or eyelid eversion, is the most common form of eyelid malposition. By impairing the eyelid's protective function, ectropion can cause epiphora, lagophthalmos, keratinization, chronic irritation, pain, and ulceration. There are 5 types of ectropion, each with a different cause: congenital, paralytic, involutional, cicatricial, and mechanical. The most common presentation in dermatology …
  • Cicatricial ectropion after wound closure of facial laceration. [Case Reports]
    J Surg Case Rep. 2020 Jan; 2020(1):rjz387.Leow JJL
  • Patients presenting to the emergency department with facial lacerations are commonplace and often sutured by a junior trainee. Cicatricial ectropion can occur after trauma, surgery and actinic/other dermatological conditions. It can make the eye dry, irritated and vulnerable to infection and water excessively. A 71-year-old man presented to the emergency department after falling off his bike. He …
  • Congenital Four Eyelid Ectropion Associated With Clefting Anomaly. [Journal Article]
    J Craniofac Surg. 2020 May/Jun; 31(3):e261-e263.Bagheri A, Shahraki K, Yazdani S
  • An infant with congenital 4 eyelid ectropion associated with cleft lip and palate developed exposure keratopathy. He underwent skin grafting of the upper eyelids and lateral canthal reconstruction. Ectropion and signs of exposure keratopathy improved. Congenital eyelid ectropion is a rare disorder. Surgical repair can successfully correct the condition.
  • Preventing Lateral Canthal Malposition in Modern Blepharoplasty. [Journal Article]
    Plast Reconstr Surg. 2020 Feb; 145(2):324e-328e.Rohrich RJ, Mohan R
  • Current goals in lower eyelid blepharoplasty include blending the lower eyelid-cheek junction, which is highlighted in the authors' six-step lower lid blepharoplasty technique. One major question in lower lid blepharoplasty is how to prevent lower lid malposition and ectropion, because these are untoward outcomes after an aesthetic procedure. In the authors' technique, they perform a superficial …
