A study of the histochemical staining of levator palpebrae superioris (LPS) was undertaken to measure the muscle fibre size in normal individuals and in patients with congenital dystrophic ptosis in order to see whether there is an alteration in muscle fibre size in congenital ptosis. Eight LPS specimens were obtained: 4 from normal patients (3 from normal levator divided in a bilateral brow suspension procedure and 1 from an exenteration specimen) and 4 from levator resection procedures for… CONTINUE READING
