Abstract

In six patients affected by congenital ptosis, a disposable epidural anesthesia needle was used instead of a Wright needle for frontalis suspension surgery. For each of the patients in this study, the use of a disposable needle permitted smaller supra-brow area incisions with a minimal scar. The needle also created a smaller breach in the plane of levator aponeurosis and preaponeurotic fat, causing less tissue edema and bleeding than with a Wright needle.
