Hughes tarsoconjunctival flap

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Hughes tarsoconjunctival flap provides a means of reconstructing posterior lamellar defects of the lower eyelid. This lid sharing procedure allows reconstruction of lower eyelid margin defects encompassing as much as 90 % of the eyelid. The tarsoconjunctival flap entails advancing a flap of upper eyelid conjunctiva and tarsus down to the lower eyelid. The rectangular flap is sized according to the size of the defect. A portion of the upper lid tarsal plate and conjunctiva (approximately 4 mm in height) is left intact to maintain upper eyelid stability. The anterior lamellar defect is reconstructed during the same operation with a local myocutaneous flap or full thickness skin graft. The tarsoconjunctival flap requires a second stage procedure 4-6 weeks later to divide the flap. In the interim, the eyelid is partially closed which may limit vision, particularly if this is the patient’s better (or only) seeing eye.
