Pterygium Excision with Conjunctival Autograft

Channels: Cornea

John Hofbauer, MD, and Nicole Fram, MD, present a case of pterygium excision in a 38-year old Hispanic male using conjunctival autograft, fibrin glue, mitomycin 0.03% and anchoring sutures. This video demonstrates the importance of careful dissection to the “root” of the pterygium rather than simply excising the pterygium flush to the plica. Subconjunctival dissection under the plica and generous tenonectomy are necessary to prevent recurrence. Four anchoring interrupted 10-0 nylon sutures are used to prevent slippage or gap of the conjunctival autograft that may occur with fibrin glue alone. Pearl: Place conjunctival autograft 1mm posterior to the limbus to avoid corneal opacity post-operatively.

Operative Dictations in Ophthalmology

This book provides residents with a comprehensive review of surgical cases within the field of ophthalmology. Operative Dictations in Ophthalmology touches on important steps within each surgical case, indications for the procedure, possible complications, and a sample dictation. The review serves as both a preparation and debriefing for each surgeon, or surgeon in training, by improving comprehension time, cultivating surgical forethought, and refining post operative dictations.
