Abstract Details


Investigate the effect and success of Jones technique with muscle resection in patients with involutional entropion.


Clinics of Ophthalmology, Istanbul Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul/Turkey


82 eyes of 61 patients with involutional entropiyonu were evaluated retrospectively. Classic jones technique applied to patients (n = 56) in group 1 and pretarsal muscle resection added to Jones technique applied to patients (n = 37) in group 2. Excluded criteria; congenital, cicatricial, spastic entropion, involutional entropion with horizontal laxity and patients with follow-up less than 6 months . Slit lamp examination and eyelid examination was performed in follow-up of patients. Successful considered to improved entropion and cases without ectropion. two groups were compared to recurrence, complications and success.


The mean follow-up period was 14.3 ±2.3 months in group 1 (6-21 months). An average follow-up period was 11.3 ±2.1 months (6-19months) in group 2. Recurrences were 13 of the patients in group 1 (23.2%), 3 of cases (8.1%) in group 2. Over-correction weren’t in two groups . Statistically not significant between the two groups . However mathematical recurrence rate was less in the group with muscle resection (p = 0.050).


Jones technique with muscle resection was found to be as effective and successful method in the surgical treatment of involutional entropion . However, we consider to be need of other studies in larger series .
