An animal model studying reconstruction techniques and histopathological changes in repair of canalicular lacerations.

Abstract

We designed an animal model using sheep to evaluate three methods of canalicular reconstruction after laceration: direct sutured reapposition of the canaliculus without silicone intubation (4 eyelids), silicone intubation of the canalicular system without mucosal anastomosis (14 lids) and silicone intubation with mucosal anastomosis (10 lids). We also… (More)
