Abstract Details

Purpose:

Recurrent pterygium management is a difficult proposition with no clear cut protocols available. This study evaluates the efficacy of conjunctival autograft (CAG) alone & CAG with amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) & mitomycin C (MMC) in treatment of recurrent pterygium.

Setting:

Tertiary eye care centre, Disha Eye Hospitals in Eastern India,from July 2010 to June 2015

Methods:

Retrospective, Comparative, Interventional case series. 52 cases underwent CAG alone (Group A). 25 cases (Group B) with multirecurrence, advanced & double headed recurrence were subjected to CAG with AMT & MMC. 25 cases (Group C) were kept only under observation. Follow up was 9-36 months.

Results:

Recurrence rate was 13.46% seen in Group A, and 24% in group B. Observation group remained stable. Cases in Group B were more high risk patients & had higher complications.

Conclusions:

Conjunctival autograft alone also can give acceptable results in recurrent pterygium. Cases with multiple surgeries, advanced recurrence & double headed recurrence are complicated and prone to high recurrence despite undergoing conjunctival autograft, amniotic membrane transplantation and mitomycin C application.
