Eyelid reconstruction with hard palate mucosa grafts.

Hard palate mucosa grafts are an excellent replacement for tarsus and conjunctiva in eyelid reconstruction. Twenty-five eyelids from 18 patients underwent eyelid reconstruction using hard palate mucosa grafts. Patients were treated for a variety of disorders including postblepharoplasty lower eyelid retraction, cicatricial entropion, eyelid retraction secondary to thyroid eye disease, and lagophthalmos following surgery for paralytic ptosis. Surgical results were evaluated, grafts were measured for postoperative shrinkage, and donor site healing was recorded. Several patients had hard palate biopsy specimens evaluated. One of these patients also had a graft biopsied after it had been in place for 3 months. A review of hard palate anatomy and histology and a discussion of surgical technique are presented.
