101. Maximal levator resection in unilateral congenital ptosis with poor levator function. (Abstract)

Maximal levator resection in unilateral congenital ptosis with poor levator function. Surgical treatments for the correction of congenital ptosis with poor levator function, including frontalis suspension or maximal levator resection, remain controversial. We evaluated the postoperative surgical and cosmetic outcomes after maximal levator resection for unilateral congenital ptosis with poor levator function.A retrospective, interventional case series was performed. A total of 243 patients (...) with 243 eyelids (210 unilateral and 33 bilateral asymmetric ptosis) who underwent unilateral maximal levator resection were included. The surgical results were graded as excellent, good and poor and postoperative complications were documented.The mean age at the time of surgery was 8.8±9.7 years (range, 2-58 years) with mean follow-up time of 40.9±38.9 months (range, 3 months to 18.9 years). Satisfactory results (excellent or good result) were obtained in 93.0% of the patients. Patients were divided

102. Effect of Pectoral Electrostimulation on Reduction of Mammary Ptosis After Bariatric Surgery. (Abstract)

Effect of Pectoral Electrostimulation on Reduction of Mammary Ptosis After Bariatric Surgery. Over 90% of women report to be very dissatisfied with the aspect of their breast after bariatric surgery. Breast reconstructive surgeries are often not funded by the National Health Service or private health insurances in many countries and the patient must pay a high economic amount to undergo it.A prospective randomized clinical trial of patients undergoing bariatric surgery was performed. Patients (...) in Regnault classification (P=0.014), ptosis (P=0.017), and projection (P=0.025). Multiple comparisons revealed that there were no significant differences in all these variables between group 2 and group 3, whereas a significant difference could be observed between groups 1 and 2 and 1 and 3. Median satisfaction score with the prescribed treatment was significantly better in group 1 than in the other groups.Percutaneous electrostimulation of the pectoral muscle combined with specific training achieves

103. Automated Ptosis Measurements From Facial Photographs. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Automated Ptosis Measurements From Facial Photographs. Measurements of the margin reflex distances 1 and 2 are crucial for the surgical planning of ptosis repair and blepharoplasty. Facial photographs annotated with automated measurements of eyelid position could provide objective, accurate, and reproducible documentation of these features.To describe a software algorithm for determining the margin reflex distances 1 and 2 from facial photographs and to evaluate its agreement with manual (...) ptosis measurements produced by our software algorithm compare favorably with manually performed clinical measurements. An automated, photography-based system could provide an archival and highly reproducible means for obtaining the margin reflex distances 1 and 2 and other facial morphometric data.

104. Transient traumatic isolated neurogenic ptosis after a mild head trauma: a case report. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Transient traumatic isolated neurogenic ptosis after a mild head trauma: a case report. Transient traumatic isolated neurogenic ptosis (TTINP) is a sporadically reported rare entity. However, to the best of our knowledge, nearly all the reported cases are either secondary to direct periorbital trauma or surgery. We would like to report on a case of TTINP with countre-coup injury of the periorbital region.A 49-year-old female slipped and fell down while walking. She was hospitalized (...) with a moderate headache and undisturbed mental state. The patient recalled that the force bearing point was her occipital region. Physical examination and computed tomography (CT) on admission showed right isolated ptosis and mild contusion and laceration in the bilateral frontal cortex. Further radiological investigation revealed nothing remarkable except for a fracture of the superior portion of the right medial orbital wall. She was managed conservatively and recovered completely in two months.TTINP might

106. Congenital ptosis, scoliosis, and malignant hyperthermia susceptibility in siblings with recessive RYR1 mutations. (Abstract)

Congenital ptosis, scoliosis, and malignant hyperthermia susceptibility in siblings with recessive RYR1 mutations. Malignant hyperthermia susceptibility is a rare pharmacogenic disorder of skeletal muscle calcium regulation caused by mutations in the skeletal muscle ryanodine receptor 1 gene (RYR1). It is important to identify children who are candidates for ophthalmic surgery who might harbor RYR1 mutations because intraoperative malignant hyperthermia is potentially lethal. We report 2 (...) siblings with congenital ptosis and scoliosis who were considered for ptosis surgery but were found to harbor underlying recessive RYR1 mutations.

108. Novel FOXL2 mutations in two Chinese families with blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Novel FOXL2 mutations in two Chinese families with blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome. Blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) is a rare autosomal dominant disease. Mutations in the forkhead box L2 (FOXL2) gene cause two types of BPES distinguished by the presence (type I) and absence (type II) of premature ovarian failure (POF). The purpose of this study was to identify possible mutations in FOXL2 in two Chinese families with BPES.Two large autosomal (...) palpebral fissures, ptosis, telecanthus, and epicanthus inversus without female infertility (POF). A novel FOXL2 heterozygous indel mutation c.675_690delinsT, including a 16-bp deletion and a 1-bp(T) insertion (p.Ala226_Ala230del), which would result in deletion of 5 alanine residues of a poly-alanine (poly-Ala) tract in the protein, was identified in all affected members of family A. A novel heterozygous missense mutation (c.223C > T, p.Leu75Phe) was identified in family B.Two novel FOXL2 mutations

111. Infected ptosis surgery – a rare complication from a multidrug-resistant organism Full Text available with Trip Pro

Infected ptosis surgery – a rare complication from a multidrug-resistant organism A 7-year-old boy had a case of congenital ptosis of the right eye and has undergone frontalis sling surgery using Gore-tex material. There was no intraoperative or immediate postoperative complication. However, the patient defaulted his follow-up and presented with right eye preseptal abscess secondary to infected surgical wound 1 month after surgery. He was treated with multiple antibiotics and underwent (...) repeated incision and drainage procedures. However, there was still no resolution of the right eye preseptal abscess. The patient's condition subsequently improved after removal of the Gore-tex material and treatment with an antibiotic combination of ceftazidime and amikacin. Microbiological analysis finally isolated the multidrug resistant Acinetobacter species. At 6 months follow-up, his right upper eyelid was healed with scarring, but without ptosis.

112. The Effect of Ptosis on Cataract Surgical Planning Full Text available with Trip Pro

The Effect of Ptosis on Cataract Surgical Planning To describe a patient complaining of 'ghosting' and 'shadowing' after bilateral, sequential cataract extraction with toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation who was found to have significant eyelid ptosis.The following is a case report.The patient's complaints arose a few weeks after surgery. By the second postoperative month, the patient's keratometry had changed compared to preoperative measurements. Because of significant ptosis (...) uncorrected visual acuity was 20/20 in the right eye and 20/15 in the left, and he was satisfied with his quality of vision.Bilateral toric IOLs were implanted in this patient based on measurements of corneal astigmatism that changed after cataract surgery and changed further after ptosis repair. This case demonstrates the importance of evaluating eyelid position in cataract surgical planning as ptosis can contribute significantly to corneal astigmatism. Patient education is important in the setting

113. Myasthenia Gravis Presenting as Persistent Unilateral Ptosis with Facial Droop. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Myasthenia Gravis Presenting as Persistent Unilateral Ptosis with Facial Droop. Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that is classically characterized by fluctuating weakness and fatigability of the ocular, bulbar, limb, or respiratory muscles. Over half of patients with MG will initially experience isolated ocular symptoms in one or both eyes. Most patients report that ocular symptoms are mild or undetectable upon awakening, and worsen throughout the day or with tasks (...) such as driving. We describe an unusual case of MG presenting with an acute onset of persistent unilateral ptosis and ipsilateral facial droop without diurnal variation or other fluctuation in severity.A 58-year-old man presented to the Emergency Department with a 3-day history of persistent, unilateral ptosis with facial droop, concerning for stroke. However, magnetic resonance imaging of the head found no evidence of stroke or any other central etiology. Routine laboratory testing was unremarkable

114. Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy and Ptosis: Perforator Flap Breast Reconstruction Allows Full Secondary Mastopexy with Complete Nipple Areolar Repositioning. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy and Ptosis: Perforator Flap Breast Reconstruction Allows Full Secondary Mastopexy with Complete Nipple Areolar Repositioning. Patients with moderate to severe ptosis are often considered poor candidates for nipple-sparing mastectomy. This results from the perceived risk of nipple necrosis and/or the inability of the reconstructive surgeon to reliably and effectively reposition the nipple-areola complex on the breast mound after mastectomy.A retrospective review (...) identified patients with grade II/III ptosis who underwent nipple-sparing mastectomy with immediate perforator flap reconstruction and subsequently underwent a mastopexy procedure. The mastopexies included complete, full-thickness periareolar incisions with peripheral undermining around the nipple-areola complex to allow for full transposition of the nipple-areola complex relative to the surrounding skin envelope.Seventy patients with 116 nipple-sparing mastectomies met inclusion criteria.

117. Inverse Bell’s Phenomenon: Rare Ophthalmic Finding Following Ptosis Surgery Full Text available with Trip Pro

Inverse Bell’s Phenomenon: Rare Ophthalmic Finding Following Ptosis Surgery Bell's phenomenon is protective reflex in which the globe is turned upwards and slightly outwards during the eyelid closure to avoid corneal exposure. In Inverse Bell's phenomenon, the eye moves downward instead of upward, this may be seen in the normal population, patients with Bell's palsy or following conjunctival scarring. We hereby present the unusual complication of transient inversion of Bell's phenomenon (...) following extensive levator resection surgery performed for congenital ptosis. A 24-year-old male was undergone ptosis correction surgery. On postoperative day two, ocular examination revealed down rolling of eye ball during eyelid closure. It underwent spontaneous resolution within four weeks without any corneal complication. The patients were given frequent lubricating eye drops during this period and advised frequent follow-up for early diagnosis of corneal complication. Here we highlight an inverse

120. The contralateral upper eyelid in ptosis: some observations pertinent to ptosis corrective surgery. Full Text available with Trip Pro

The contralateral upper eyelid in ptosis: some observations pertinent to ptosis corrective surgery. The validity of Hering's law in corrective surgery for ptosis is demonstrated for the first time. It is also shown how Hering's law has been utilised in corrective surgery for unilateral ptosis to elicit a predominant response from the unoperated contralateral upper eyelid. Other implications of reciprocal innervation of the 2 upper eyelids are discussed and a tentative hypothesis is postulated (...) that in a case of true unilateral levator ptosis the fellow upper eyelid will show compensatory retraction.
