380 Possible Causes for Thick Eyelids

  • Ectropion

    To report a novel surgical technique for lower eyelid involutional ectropion repair using a lateral tarsal strip and internal retractor reattachment procedure involving full-thickness[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Full-thickness eyelid resections performed in study and control patients were examined by light and transmission electron microscopy, computer-assisted measurements, and immunohistochemistry[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Full-thickness eyelid biopsy specimens were examined by light microscopy and computer-assisted morphometry.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Balanitis

    Full-thickness skin grafting from the upper eyelids supplemented with split-thickness skin grafting was successfully used in a patient to end a 57-year symptomatic course.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Entropion

    eyelid shortening combined with retractor plication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Histopathological analysis of the full-thickness eyelid specimens of both groups included measurements of tarsal thickness and height, thickness of the pretarsal orbicularis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Eighteen full-thickness eyelid specimens from patients with involutional ectropion and entropion were obtained during horizontal eyelid shortening procedures performed at[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Blue Nevus

    A 93-year-old Caucasian woman with a flat, irregular, and deeply pigmented black growth of the left upper eyelid margin of unknown duration underwent a full-thickness eyelid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Rupture

    Full-thickness upper eyelid lacerations, especially those caused by a hook, must be explored carefully to exclude superior oblique tendon rupture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Distichiasis

    Several different surgical treatment options have been previously alluded to in the literature including lamellar tarsoplasty, full-thickness eyelid fracture, and rotation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a case of unilateral upper eyelid horizontal tarsal kink associated with distichiasis and congenital corneal ulceration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

(2016), A single- versus double-layered closure technique for full-thickness lower eyelid defects: a comparative study.[eyewiki.aao.org] Stage IC: The tumor is between 10 mm and 20 mm in greatest diameter or has spread into the full thickness of the eyelid, but there is no methastasis to regional lymph nodes[eyewiki.aao.org] eyelid defects following pentagonal block excision is also need.
