Glued graft for Pterygium Yield Better Cosmetic Results

Dr.Khanna experience suggests that sutureless grafts for pterygium heal better and faster

(Vocus) -- Pterygium prevention and management has come a long way in the last few decades. Advent of modern eye drops incorporating the latest advances and microscopic surgical techniques has helped control this evil monster.

We are excited though to tell about the latest technique Dr. Khanna is using to get great cosmetic results as well as prevent this growth from rearing its ugly head again.This technique combines meticulous excision of the pterygium and covering up the bare area with a graft which is glued down. The graft may be harvested from the same eye when it is called an autograft. Or it may be bought from a company. Usually the second choice is resorted to when there are are more than one pterygia in the same eye or it is a recurrent pterygium.

The advantage of applying the glue compared to the traditional suturing technique is that the healing is more rapid. There is no inflammation from the sutures. Therefore the eye is quieter and whiter. This implies patients especially from Hollywood would appreciate the better cosmetic result. Since there are no sutures, they don’t need to be removed. So this procedure is more comfortable than suturing the graft.

The glue is biological. It utilizes components of blood which normally clot the blood. The glue comes in to two separate syringes. One contains fibrin and the other thrombin. When they come in contact they from glue and stick the graft to the conjunctiva. The surgeon has to be careful not to let the glue work before the graft is in its correct position. It is very important the syringes are thawed at room temperature. If it is the frozen variety than the components have to be first warmed up to the room temperature.

Once the graft is properly applied the glue is applied. The graft is than ironed out to remove any excess glue or air bubbles. The extra glue is washed away. Antibiotics and a patch is applied to prevent movement of graft. The patient goes home and returns the next day. There is no need to admit for overnight stay. Yes, the procedure is painless. Patients are happier. Beverly Hills Vision care specialist Dr. Khanna feels that is is one more great technique to overcome the menace of pterygium,
