Abstract:

It has been demonstrated the tarsoconjunctival flap pedicle for full thickness lid defects does not appear to supply the flap and the vascularization of the remaining eyelidtear film is thought to offer adequate nourishment for survival of the flap. A swine model was constructed to assess the viability of a bilamellar autograft for repair of large full thickness lid defects.
