Dermis Fat Graft Implantation into Anophthalmic Socket

Dermis fat graft implantation has been used for decades to augment orbital volume and surface area in patients with congenital anophthalmia as well as those suffering complications of secondary anophthalmia following enucleation. It is most commonly performed as a means of socket reconstruction in patients with an exposed or extruded orbital implant and to prevent socket contracture. In this video, a dermis fat graft is harvested from the buttock and implanted into an anophthalmic socket for treatment of exposure of orbital implant in the right socket of a patient who was status post enucleation in both eyes for painful blind eyes.

Technique of Pancreaticojejunostomy

Contributors: Emily Gross and Mark Callery This video demonstrates an end-to-side duct-to-mucosa pancreaticojejunostomy as part of a pancreaticoduodenectomy to resect a pancreatic head neoplasm. The patient is a 69 year-old female who experienced months of right upper quadrant abdominal pain and had labs consistent with biliary obstruction.

Laparoscopic Extracorporeal Repair of a Morgagni Diaphragmatic Hernia

Contributors: Anahita Jalilvand and Marco P. Fisichella This video describes a laparoscopic-extracorporeal repair with mesh of a Morgagni diaphragmatic hernia in an 81 year old female. We used Ventralight™ ST Mesh which is an uncoated lightweight monofilament polypropylene mesh on the anterior side with an absorbable hydrogel barrier based on Sepra® Technology on the posterior side for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. The posterior side mesh does not cause adhesion with the abdominal organs. DOI: A quick review of the literature of laparoscopic cases has shown that in a substantial amount of cases the hernia was reduced and the defect repaired with mesh placement without hernia sac resection . Therefore, non-resecting the sac is an acceptable option.

Lower eyelid ectropion repair with lateral tarsal strip and medial spindle procedure

One of the most common causes of lower lid ectropion is horizontal lid laxity, the incidence of which increases with age. This condition induces poor ocular surface tear film coverage which leads to irritation, tearing, and keratopathy. Lateral tarsal strip fixation is the technique which is widely used to repair involutional ectropion due to horizontal lid laxity. Medial spindle procedure is the well-known technique for puntal ectropion correction. Both surgeries are minimally invasive, simple and effective. Contributors Suzanne K. Freitag, MD, Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery Service, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School Thidarat Tanking, MD, Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery Service, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School

Lower Eyelid Entropion Repair with Lateral Tarsal Strip and Infraciliary Rotation

This combined procedure addresses multiple anatomic factors causing involutional entropion: the lateral tarsal strip is suspended to reduce horizontal laxity, and infraciliary rotation sutures are placed to stabilize the tarsus, evert the lower eyelid, and decrease orbicularis override. This approach is both efficient and effective, with a low risk of complications.
