The utility of the 'temporary marginal lid suture' in facilitating Mohs surgery for tumours involving the eyelid


, : The utility of the 'temporary marginal lid suture' in facilitating Mohs surgery for tumours involving the eyelid. British Journal of Dermatology 168(5): 1137-1138

The application of temporary sutures placed through the tarsus of the lower eyelid are well documented in the Oculoplastic and Dermatologic surgery literature. They are generally used as a suspension suture (Frost suture) to reduce the risk of ectropion due to wound contraction after reconstructive procedures involving the lower eyelid.1?5 The use of temporary sutures to facilitate Mohs surgical extirpation of eyelid tumours has not previously been described.
