Technique for Fixation of the Frost Suture in Correction of Ectropion

Mohammad Adzwin Yahiya: Technique for Fixation of the Frost Suture in Correction of Ectropion. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 2012; 10: 34–36.

Abstract: Ectropion is an abnormal eversion (outward turning) of the lid margin away from the globe. Without normal lid globe apposition, corneal exposure, tearing, keratinization of the palpebral conjunctiva, and visual loss may result. Ectropion and excess sclera show are complications that can arise after blepharoplasty, trauma of the lower eyelid, or operations using subciliary incisions. Recently, the author managed a case of postoperative ectropion using fixation of the Frost Suture described by Murphy and Bradrick. The result of the case was very encouraging, as reported here.
