[Temporal tarsal strip-plasty for correction of malposition of the lower eyelid].

The lateral tarsal strip procedure has the combined effect of increasing horizontal lid tension and adjusting the level of the lateral canthus. Following a lateral canthotomy a tarsal strip is created from the lateral aspect of the lower lid and sutured to the periosteum at the lateral orbital wall. Indications for this technique include senile and paralytic ectropion, recurrent entropion, congenital malpositions, and lid laxity following trauma or enucleation. The results yielded by this technique in 148 patients at the University Eye Hospital in Munich are presented. These included 53 suffering from paralytic ectropion in whom a medial canthoplasty was added to the lateral tarsal strip procedure. The two techniques combined provided symmetrical adjustment of the level of both lateral and medial canthal angles, a good position of the lacrimal puncta and increased lid tension.
