Pterygium SURGERY: LYSIS OF SYMBLEPHARON
The subconjivital scar tissue is dissected and AM
(Amnio Cornea-GraftTM ) is applied to cover areas of
defect. The membrane graft is secured to the recipient's conjunctival edge
to facilitate epithelial growth over the membrane
AMT (Amniotic Membrane Therapy) is not
associated with risk of sclersal necrosis. Low recurrence rates compared to
conjunctival autografting. Intraoperative MMC application
ULCERS: INLAY TECHNIQUE
AM (Amnio Cornea-GraftTM) is cut
into corresponding size and shape slightly larger than the size of the
defect and placed on the defect with the basement side facing up. It is
usually sutured on to the cornea.
CORNEAL ULCERS / PERFORASTIONS OR DESCEMETOCELES / PLUG / FILLING
Base of ulcer/ perforation cleaned made devoid of
loose / necrotic tissue. AM (Amnio Cornea-GraftTM) are "filled"
into the ulcer bed. It is finally covered with a larger AM (Amnio
Cornea-GraftTM) piece and used to bandage the defect. Is
placed basement side up sutured to the peripheral cornea.
CONJUNCTIVAL SURFACE RECONSTRUCTION
Used in place of conjunctival graft or mucosal
grafts to cover large defects due to the removal of large conjunctival
lesions. Provides healthy basement membrane for conjunctival epithelial cell
migration and differentiation (temporary substitute). Maintains normal
phenotype of goblet cell in the cell population. Have been used after
removal of large lesions like ptyergia, conjunctival intraepithelial
neoplasia and tumors.
