PURPOSE To compare the clinical results of conjunctival autograft and amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) for primary and recurrent pterygium excision. In an effort to determine whether AMT yields acceptable cosmetic results as conjunctival autografting in pterygium surgery, we compared the final cosmetic outcomes of these 2 techniques. METHODS We performed a prospective, randomized clinical study of 78 eyes (78 patients) divided into 2 groups. Forty eyes (28 with primary and 12 with… CONTINUE READING

In an effort to determine whether AMT yields acceptable cosmetic results as conjunctival autografting in pterygium surgery , we compared the final cosmetic outcomes of these 2 techniques . METHODS .
Although better results in the final appearance were achieved using conjunctival autografting than with AMT , AMT can be a useful alternative in pterygium surgery , especially in those patients who may have a limited amount of conjunctiva for future surgeries .

Forty eyes ( 28 with primary and 12 with recurrent pterygia ) received conjunctival limbal autograft ( group 1 ) , and 38 eyes ( 27 with primary and 11 with recurrent pterygia ) received AMT ( group 2 ) after extensive removal of pterygium .
