Abstract Details


To report result of a case with inferior involvement double-head pterygium undergoing narrow-strip conjunctival graft surgery.


Baskent University Faculty of Medicine, Dr Turgut Noyan Adana Research and Training Center, Ophthalmology Department, Adana, Turkey


A 68-years-old male patient presented with a pterygium tissue in his right eye showed wide spread on both side and nasally extended to the pupillary margin. Double-head pterygium was excised approximately 3 mm posterior to the limbus. The removed tissues were sent for histopathological examination. 6 mm-wide, 10 mm-length free superior conjunctival autograft was harvested. Conjunctival graft was split vertically into two after excision (3 mm-wide, 10 mm-length). The grafts were then placed on bare scleral beds and sutured interruptedly to the sclera and surrounding conjunctiva.


No recurrence was noted in the operated eye during the 12 months period.


Narrow-strip conjunctival autograft appears to be an effective and safe surgical technique for double- head pterygium surgery.
