Conclusion: Levator resection and frontalis transfer can effectively treat blepharoptosis patients with poor levator function. Frontalis muscle transfer should be performed more carefully in operation to avoid complications which too excessive contraction could cause for blepharoptosis patients with 2 approximately 4 mm of levator function P. Pelissier, W. Noel , A. Serre MDPlastic surgery, Hopital Saint Joseph, ParisBefore undertaking repair of a ptotic eyelid you have to select your patient.T.. A review of the lid anatomy can help when planning blepharoptosis surgery. Elevation of the upper eyelid is a process controlled by three retractors. The first retractor, levator palpebrae superioris, is a striated muscle in the upper eyelid innervated by the oculomotor nerve and is primarily responsible for opening the eyelid
Blepharoptosis repair or levator resection is performed for ptosis, an abnormal eyelid droop, caused by dysfunction of the eyelid muscles. A brow ptosis repair or brow lift is performed when there is abnormal sagging of the eyebrows and/or forehead Recognizing this syndrome prior to surgery can facilitate necessary planning of a canthopexy, Sires technique 2 or resection. Technique Although a myriad of surgical techniques has been described in the literature, the external levator advancement is likely the most commonly performed technique Levator advancement or resection This technique involves shortening of the levator aponeurosis according to the severity of blepharoptosis. It works for patients with good and fair levator function The surgery is done through an eyelid crease incision

Repair of blepharoptosis from the posterior eyelid approach has usually been done utilizing a MÃ¼ller's muscle-conjuctival resection (MMCR) or an open sky technique. We present a new technique to advance the levator muscle from the posterior-approach in a closed fashion that can be used in patients with severe involutional ptosis First described by Putterman and Urist in 1975, Muller's Muscle-Conjunctival Resection (MMCR) was a modification of the Fasanella-Servat procedure, which involves the excision of 3mm of tarsus. MMCR is a posterior eyelid ptosis repair technique, which spares the tarsus. The obvious advantage of this modification is that tarsus can be used in later procedures and the Meibomian glands. 67904 Repair of blepharoptosis; (tarso) levator resection or advancement, external approach 67906 Repair of blepharoptosis; superior rectus technique with fascial sling (includes obtaining fascia) 67908 Repair of blepharoptosis; conjunctivo-tarso-Muller's muscle-levator resection (eg, Fasanella-Servat type) ICD-10 Procedure Code They described the procedure as an excision of tarsoconjunctiva, MÃ¼ller's muscle, and the levator palpebrae superioris muscle. The Fasanella-Servat operation has been employed for all types of blepharoptosis, including congenital, myogenic, neurogenic, traumatic, ptosis in Horner's syndrome, and blepharoptosis of the an ophthalmic socket
repair involving levator aponeurotic advancement, tarsoa-poneurectomy, and posterior repair involving resection of MÃ¼ller's muscle have proven effective for most acquired blepharoptosis correction.9 AP is the most common form of blepharoptosis that is usually associated with good LF. Elderly people are mor The most effective way to cure blepharoptosis is surgery. There are several types of surgery your doctor might consider, including: MÃ¼ller muscle-conjunctival resection, which is appropriate for patients with mild to moderate blepharoptosis; Levator advancement or resection, for patients with good control of the levator muscle Indications: Moderate levator function must be present to offer a chance for correction with a levator resection. If the levator function is greater than 4 mm but less than 6 mm, a levator resection of greater than or equal to 22 mm is recommended. If the levator function is 6-8 mm, a levator resection of 16-18 mm is indicated In patients with blepharoptosis, the function of levator muscle is insufficient or completely absent, causing blepharoptosis in various degrees. For mild or moderate blepharoptosis, levator advancement or resection is commonly performed. However, in severe cases, undercorrection results and recurrence often occur even a great length of levator muscle is resected. Because the levator muscle.
The maintenance of levator function is an essential part of some ptosis procedures. It allows demonstration of the redevelopment of normal lid function in patients who have aponeurotic defects and is a valuable guide in patients with other syndromes in which the amount of levator resection cannot be judged accurately from preoperative measurements A full-thickness resection can be used in combination with an external levator advancement. After a blepharotomy is performed, the superior tarsus can be resected for the length of the eyelid. Remember that aggressive tarsal resection can result in eyelid instability. Therefore, the resection should be limited to a height of 4 mm
There are three surgical approaches to ptosis repair: Muller's muscle conjunctival resection (MMCR), levator advancement (Fig 12), and frontalis sling. Figure 11. Ptosis visual field showing extent of the visual field in a patient with visually-significant ptosis before and after lifting the upper eyelid with tape In this surgical video, Dr. Francesco Bernardini presents an elegant and efficient method for treating congenital ptosis. The technique involves advancement of the levator muscle beyond the Whitnall ligament with lysis of the levator horns and all attachments of the muscle To assess the outcome of isolated Muller's muscle resection with preservation of conjunctiva in patients with blepharoptosis and good to moderate levator function. This study was designed as a.

Superior tarsectomy augments super-maximum levator resection in correction of severe blepharoptosis with poor levator function. Ophthalmology. 2006;113(7):1201-120816815403PubMed Google Scholar Crossre Background and objective: Levator aponeurosis resection is an effective technique to correct blepharoptosis when the levator function is fair to good. This study aimed to determine the amount of levator resection in congenital blepharoptosis repair. Methods: This is a prospective case series study conducted in Rizgary teaching hospita
Although the choice of blepharoptosis surgery is controversial, levator resection is generally employed for patients with good levator function, while frontalis sling surgery is used for patients with poor levator function. 1-4 Following the surgical procedures performed in this study, we observed significant improvement in postoperative MRD. After blepharoptosis surgery (levator resection), the filamentary keratitis disappeared in both cases. This is the first report of improvements of filamentary keratitis after blepharoptosis surgery and it suggests that blepharoptosis is a trigger of filamentary keratitis in dry eye patients To present the surgical results of, and postoperative complications after, resection of the levator aponeurosis as a treatment for aponeurotic blepharoptosis in patients with grafted corneas. Nine eyes with grafted corneas displaying aponeurotic blepharoptosis were investigated. Undercorrective resection of levator aponeurosis was performed on all nine patients
Abstract. We describe a patient with blepharoptosis, poor levator function, and a positive phenylephrine test who responded favorably to MÃ¼ller's muscle-conjunctival resection, alleviating the need for a frontalis suspension ptosis repair in the presence of very deep superior sulci. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers 2002;33: 491-492 Three patients underwent levator resection for congenital blepharoptosis following informed consent by the patient or their parents. The first case was a 12-year-old boy with left residual ptosis, following a previous levator resection surgery performed elsewhere 3 years ago According to the severity of blepharoptosis and levator muscle function of the patient, there are numerous treatment options that a surgeon can choose for ptosis repair. For patients with mild-to-moderate ptosis and sufficient levator muscle function, Muller's muscle-conjunctival resection (MMCR) is the procedure of choice
Blepharoptosis, or ptosis, refers to the inferior displacement of the upper eyelid. 1 According to the severity, ptosis is categorized as mild, moderate, or severe. For mild and moderate ptosis, transcutaneous levator advancement or levator resection techniques are the primary choices for surgical treatment. 2 However, a skin incision scar is inevitable, which eventually results in an. MÃ¼ller muscle conjunctival resection (MMCR) ptosis repair is an effective procedure, introduced in the 1970s. The patient population classically deemed to be good candidates for MMCR are those with mild-to-moderate ptosis with good levator function and a favorable response to phenylephrine topical drops. 1, 2 At present, MMCR is not widely accepted as an appropriate treatment for severe.
The treatment for severe unilateral blepharoptosis is controversial. Sixteen consecutive cases of severe unilateral blepharoptosis were studied: eight had a super-maximum levator muscle resection (30 mm or more) and eight had a bilateral brow suspension with excision of the normal levator Levator muscle function is a measure of maximal lid excursion and crucial for selecting the best surgical approach. Once the levator muscle function is measured as reasonable, along with a good Bell's phenomenon, the strengthening of the muscle by the shortening or resection techniques through an external approach can favorably elevate the eyelid
External levator advancement for repair of ptosis. This opens in a new window. This is Richard Allen at the University of Iowa. This video demonstrates an external levator advancement. This is an adult patient. A 15 blade is used to make an incision through the skin and orbicularis muscle along the eyelid crease Levator function and surgeon's preference assign the surgical option with severe blepharoptosis: Whitnall's sling (attachment of Whitnall's ligament to tarsus), supramaximal levator resection with or without tarsectomy, and frontalis suspension surgery are the most recommended techniques [1-5,8,9,13-18] Tarsal Switch Levator Resection for the Treatment of Blepharoptosis in Patients with Poor Eye Protective Mechanisms Sheri L.

The most logical way to treat this pathology is to strengthen the levator muscle via a suitable length resection. However, when levator function is poor and the muscle is fibrotic, little is to be gained by this approach Hawaii Medical Service Associatio 10.1055/b-0039-172784 36 Blepharoptosis ReoperationMichael A. Burnstine Abstract Eyelid ptosis surgery may require reoperation to obtain an excellent symmetric result and a satisfied patient.

Ptosis, also known as blepharoptosis, is a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid.The drooping may be worse after being awake longer when the individual's muscles are tired. This condition is sometimes called lazy eye, but that term normally refers to the condition amblyopia.If severe enough and left untreated, the drooping eyelid can cause other conditions, such as amblyopia or astigmatism .

Mild to moderate blepharoptosis with good levator function is usually corrected by levator muscle resection or advancement with their modifications with high success rate. Levator plication technique has been strongly suggested in patients with mild to moderate ptosis, advocated by its simple and rapid recovery Levator Resection for Unilateral Congenital Blepharoptosis without Strabismus Shuâ€‘Ya Wu 1, Lih Ma1, Hsinâ€‘Hui Huang2, Yuehâ€‘Ju Tsai 1 C ongenital blepharoptosis is an embryological abâ€‘ normality in the levator complex development that causes a lack of differentiation of the levator muscle and malposition of the eyelid. It is now well.
If the levator function is poor (5-6 mm or less), then performing a levator resection or shortening procedure will lead inevitably to undercorrection. In this setting a brow suspension is preferred. For congenital ptosis with 7 mm or more of levator function, a levator shortening or resection is preferred Repair of blepharoptosis; (tarso) levator resection or advancement, external approach : 67906 ; Repair of Blepharoptosis; superior rectus technique with fascial sling (includes obtaining fascia) 67908 ; Repair of blepharoptosis; conjunctivo-tarso-Muller's muscle levator resection (eg Fasanella-Servat type) 6790
There are several surgical treatment options, including frontalis sling, levator resection, and MÃ¼ller's muscle-conjunctival resection with or without a tarsectomy. Dr. Rostami and Dr. Naz will carefully select the technique based on evaluation of levator function, degree of ptosis, and the patient's response to 2.5% phenylephrine testing Blepharoptosis is a common condition defined by either unilateral or bilateral eyelid drooping. 1 It can affect individuals of all ages and is caused by weakness of the levator palpebrae superioris and MÃ¼ller's muscle, levator resection and the frontalis sling. 1 Levator function,. Upper Eyelid Ptosis (Blepharoptosis) is defined as a drop in the eyelid 1-2mm below the upper corneal limbus when examined in primary gaze. 2. What is the cause of Ptosis? The commonest cause of ptosis is senile/involutional ptosis due to laxity in the Levator aponeurosis.

Blepharoptosis, inferodisplacement of the upper eyelid, can be congenital or acquired. Acquired Blepharoptosis is usually aponeurotic, due to stretching or disinsertion of the levator aponeurosis. Treatment is surgical and can be performed by three common procedures - Levator advancement, MÃ¼ller's muscle-conjunctival resection procedure and White line advancement Purpose: To evaluate the clinical outcomes of maximal levator muscle resection surgery in patients with poor levator function.Methods: This prospective study included 29 eyelids of 23 patients who underwent maximal levator resection surgery.Pre- and postoperatively, all patients' routine ophthalmic examination including evaluation of upper eyelid skin crease positions; levator muscle. Blepharoptosis also called ptosis, is defined as drooping of the upper eyelid with the eyes in the primary position of gaze 1) . Blepharoptosis can be bilateral or unilateral and can be difficult to identify unless a proper exam is performed. Blepharoptosis is relatively common in the general population and while frequently regarded as a purely. Blepharoptosis (ptosis) repair is a surgical procedure performed to elevate the upper eyelid margin in patients with congenital or acquired ptosis and can be accomplished by procedures such as external levator resection or advancement, posterior approach MÃ¼ller's muscle and conjunctival resection, or frontalis suspension. Ptosis repair should b Levator-MÃ¼ller's muscle resection. Resection of both the levator and MÃ¼ller's muscle is generally indicated in patients with decreased levator function secondary to scarring or muscle dysfunction. However, for this technique to be effective, there must be some residual levator function
