Abstract:   (814 Views)
Scarring is a common post-injury outcome that can precipitate functional impairment. We present the case of a 75-year-old female who presented with diminished upper eyelid excursion in her right (only seeing) eye due to scarring associated with a facial laceration. She had a history of right eye corneal transplantation and necessitated urgent excision of the scar to release upper eyelid motion. The scar was excised, and a full-thickness skin graft (FTSG) was used, harvested from the skin of the right supraclavicular neck. Post-operative recovery was excellent, and the patient was relieved of restriction of her right upper eyelid opening.
