Operative and conservative treatment of lagophthalmos (facial palsy) by lid-loading: II. Report



Operative and conservative treatment of lagophthalmos (facial palsy) by lid-loading: II. Report



Ophthalmologe 90(1): 27-30



Thirty patients with irreversible facial palsy were treated with gold implants from 0.5 to 1.8 g. For the immediate treatment of postoperative facial palsies and reversible kinds of lagophthalmos, lead weights of 1.2 to 1.8 g ("lid dynamic eye dressing") are preferred to hourglass dressings. Insufficient orbicularis muscle function is compensated by the weight. The observation time for gold implants is more than 2 years; the fixation time of the adhesive lead weights is 1 to 10 days.
