New Approach Emerges for Pterygium
During the past decade, the debate over the best approach to pterygium surgery has centered on whether surgeons should use sutures or fibrin glue to affix the conjunctival autograft. More recently, however, a novel approach has emerged that uses the patient’s own blood for graft fixation.
In the video above, Santanu Mitra, MBBS, and colleagues at Disha Eye Hospitals, Kolkata, India, review various techniques for pterygium surgery and perform a complete procedure using autoblood conjunctival graft fixation. In addition, they present their results from a series of 19 patients who underwent this procedure.
