Large Eyelid Defect Repair Using a Free Full-Thickness Eyelid Graft

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Large eyelid full-thickness defects are traditionally repaired using flaps with a blood-supplying pedicle, for the reconstruction of the anterior or posterior lamella or both. This is a 2-stage procedure involving occlusion of vision in the affected eye for 4-8 weeks, as the flap pedicle is not divided until vascularization is deemed adequate. However, the importance of using a flap with a pedicle to ensure adequate perfusion of the graft has recently been questioned.
