Cicatricial entropion: an analysis of its treatment with transverse blepharotomy and marginal rotation.

Ophthalmic Surgery 1989 August
Transverse blepharotomy with marginal rotation is a simple and effective procedure to treat cicatricial entropion of diverse etiology in upper and lower eyelids. The surgeon can vary the site of incision and suture placement to control the amount of marginal rotation required. We treated 152 eyelids (98 patients) with this technique, obtaining an 85% overall success rate. Eleven recurrences were found in 7 of 18 lids with ocular pemphigoid; the success rate for this subgroup was 39% compared with 92% for all others. We recommend this procedure as a technically easy treatment for cicatricial entropion not caused by ocular pemphigoid.
