Abstract:   (175 Views)
BACKGROUND
Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) are locally invasive periocular skin cancers affecting lower eyelids more than upper eyelids. The purpose of this study was to describe techniques used for lower eyelid reconstruction after extended excision of BCC. 
METHODS
Eight referred patients with BCC who underwent lower eyelid reconstruction were enrolled. The tumor was surgically excised with sufficient margins by one surgeon. Defects were repaired by subdermal tunnel between lateral border of defect and insertion site of lateral cantus. 
RESULTS
Eight patients aged 45 to 75 years were followed up for 6 months. After follow up, adequate viability of the grafts, satisfactory functional and good cosmetic results was noticed in all patients. One patient complained of irritation at the site of surgery. No total or partial necrosis, hematoma, or infection were observed in flaps, and no additional surgery was needed. 
CONCLUSION
The present novel surgical procedure was useful to close full thickness defects in the lower lid to preserve the function of the lower eyelid and a good aesthetic outcome.
