Frontalis Suspension Using Autogenous Fascia Lata With Stripper For Congenital Ptosis

Author: Vu Thi Que Anh
ePoster Number: 201


To evaluate the outcome of frontalis suspension surgery for congenital ptosis using autogenous fascia lata (FL) with stripper


Retrospective case series of 63 congenital ptosis patients underwent frontalis suspension using autogenous FL with stripper with a minimum 3 months of follow-up. A strip of FL (minimum length 12 cm) was harvested through a small incision from a line drawn from the anterior superior iliac crest and the lateral tibial condyle. The width of the strip was usually approximately 5-10 mm. Surgical results were collected from chart records and patient examinations after surgery.


The mean age of the patients was 12.3±6.4 years (range 4 to 31 years). Almost cases achieved good to excellent lid postions with adequate cosmetic results at final examination, without early (haemorrhage, wound infection, corneal exposure) or late (contour abnormality, overcorrection, recurrence) postoperative complications.


Frontalis suspension using autogenous fascia lata appears to be a safe and effective treatment for congenital ptosis
