Autologous serum for anterior tissue necrosis after porous orbital implant.


PMID 24791115

Abstract

Orbital implants are now routinely used after enucleation and evisceration. However exposure of the implant can lead to infection and extrusion. Hence, early repair of larger exposure with graft material is required. We describe three cases where early postoperative mucosal dehiscence was successfully managed with autologous serum.
