    He underwent symblepharon lysis and placement of an amniotic membrane wrapped around a symblepharon ring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He underwent symblepharon release surgery with mucous membrane graft in both eyes. Osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis surgery was later performed on the left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe the intraoperative difficulties encountered in cases of ocular Stevens-Johnson syndrome as a result of a poor ocular surface, the presence of symblepharon, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis

    The purpose of this study is to describe a novel technique using amniotic membrane suture-fixated onto custom-designed symblepharon rings in a patient with acute toxic epidermal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] severe chronic ocular complications (chronic ocular manifestation score 8), including keratinization, corneal conjunctivalization, mucocutaneous junction involvement, or symblepharon[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most common physical complications identified in the medical examination were post-inflammatory skin changes (77%), cutaneous scars (46%), dry eyes (44%), symblepharon[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    […] cicatricial pemphigoid, encompasses a group of chronic subepithelial autoimmune blistering diseases that predominantly affect the oral cavity and the eyes (conjunctivitis and symblepharon[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination was notable for symblepharon of the right eye and impetigo-like lesions on the face and neck.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case report of a 17-year-old girl who presented with worsening dyspnea, skin rash, and bilateral ocular injection, symblepharon, and fornix foreshortening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atopic Keratoconjunctivitis

    These atypical cases often showed a fine papillary conjunctival reaction on the upper tarsus, subconjunctival scarring, and in 1 case severe symblepharon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ocular involvement, such as atopic keratoconjunctivitis, characteristically includes conjunctival and corneal inflammation, and in a severe form, conjunctival scarring, symblepharon[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Significant keratopathy developed in 70% of patients, corneal neovascularization in 60%, fornix foreshortening in 25%, and symblepharon in 20% during the course of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chemical Burn of the Cornea

    Images: Image 1: Anterior symblepharon after a severe alkali burn.[morancore.utah.edu] The deepithelialized conjunctival surfaces tend to fuse and form symblepharon bands.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] In cases of severe conjunctivocorneal burns where one expects symblepharon formation, it is most essential to keep the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva apart.[ijo.in]
