ABSTRACT

Aim: This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of total levator aponeurosis resection in patients with very poor levator function secondary to primary congenital ptosis.

Design: A retrospective, noncomparative single-institutional study was designed.

Participants: Seven patients with very poor levator function secondary to primary congenital ptosis operated between May 2008 and May 2010 by one surgeon (AM).

Materials and methods: A retrospective study of seven patients with congenital ptosis evaluating eyelid elevation following total levator aponeurosis resection. End result is improvement of the eyelid elevation.

Conclusion: Total levator aponeurosis resection is easy and effective tool in elevating the eyelid in patients with very poor levator function secondary to primary congenital ptosis.

Figure 0004: Two months postoperative of the same patient showing dramatic improvement of MRD +3 and good opening of the plapebral fissure

Mentions: Seven patients having unilateral primary congenital ptosis with very poor levator function underwent total levator aponeurosis resection. The patients included five females and two males. Their ages were ranging from 16 to 32 years. The preoperative and postoperative physical evaluation included recording of vertical fissure height, margin reflex distance, upper lid crease position, and assessing levator function were compared [Tables 1 and 2]. The follow-up period ranged from 2 months to 2 years. At the end of the follow-up period, a dramatic improvement was noted in the lid position, contour, and height in all patients [Figures 4 and 5].
