We used semicircular flap technique to successfully reconstruct lower eyelid in one woman of 65 and the upper eyelid in another woman of 70 after the excision of large eyelid basal cell carcinoma.
The technique was also helpful in reconstructing the lower eyelid in an 18-year-old women with contracted socket. This patients also required a graft from the buccal mucosa. The technique also gave very gratifying results in another patient, a 15-year-old girl, who had developed ugly and contracted upper right eyelid with corneal exposure following severe ostomyelitis. This technique produces very satisfactory cosmetic and functional results. [Pakistan Journal of Ophthalmology 9: 63-66, July, 1993. ]
