Autoscleral flap grafting: a technique of scleral repair.

Ophthalmic Surgery 26(1):44 (1995) PMID 7746624

We describe using the technique of autoscleral flap grafting in 1 eye with scleral staphyloma, in 2 eyes with scleral ectasia, and in 1 eye with scleral deficiency following excision of a limbal tumor. In three cases, follow up was over 6 months; in the remaining case, 2 months. In one patient, the scleral ectasia recurred, since the scleral flap that could be dissected was thin. The recurrence was managed successfully by a periosteal autograft.
