Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the five-year stability of frontalis suspension of the upper eyelid with a silicone band for the treatment of severe congenital ptosis in infants. Methods: Chart review of pediatric patients with a follow-up of five years after unilateral frontalis suspension with silicone band was reviewed. Margin-reflex distance (MRD) and corneal staining were measured at different follow-up visits. Data were analyzed by analysis of variance and t test for paired data. Results: Twenty pediatric patients were included in this retrospective study. MRD was severely reduced before surgery in all cases: it ranged from −1 mm to −4 mm (−2.4 ± 0.8 mm). After surgery, MRD increased to 2.9 ± 0.3 mm, and then progressively decreased by 0.6 mm within the first three months (p
