Abstract Details

Purpose:

The aim of this study was to report 3 cases of persistent epithelial defects (PEDs) successfully treated with the combined topical application of a regenerative agent (RGTA; Cacicol20, OTR3, Paris, France) with a bandage contact lens (BCL).

Setting:

Vardinoyiannion Eye Institute of Crete (VEIC), Faculty of Medicine, University of Crete, Heraklion, Crete, Greece

Methods:

Three patients suffering from a PED for 4–8 weeks and unresponsive to conventional therapy were treated with the combined application of an RGTA (Cacicol20) and a silicone hydrogel BCL.

Results:

The PED healed in all patients after 4–21 days, and no side effects were noted. No recurrence observed during the follow-up period.

Conclusions:

The combination of an RGTA (Cacicol20) with a BCL seems to be an effective treatment for PED.
