Augmented Super-Maximum Levator Resection Vs Frontalis Suspension in Management of Severe Ptosis with Poor Levator Function
|Full paper||Not Available|
Background: children with severe ptosis and poor levator function have a significant visual handicap. Frontalis suspension is usually used as the procedure of choice for those children. It is an efficient and simple method of treatment. However, many investigators believe that eventually all those cases will recur regardless of the sling material. Super-maximum levator resections (27 - 30 mm) can be integrated , with superior tarsectomyto refine the ptosis corrective procedure in cases having poor levator function.
