From the health record of a patient having office-based surgery:
Preoperative Diagnosis: Bilateral entropion, lower eyelids
Postoperative Diagnosis: Bilateral entropion, lower eyelids
Operation: Repair of entropion of right eye
Procedure: The patient was sterily prepped and draped for ocular solution of 2 percent lidocaine, mixed in equal proportions with 0.75 percent Marcaine with the addition of Wydase, and a modified Van Lint technique was performed on the right eye.
Incision was made in the inferior lid margin extended inferiorly. This consisted of a diamond shape, with 6-mm lengthwise incisions interconducted. Hemostasis was obtained using wet-field cautery. The incision was then sutured using a tapered needle. The first suture was placed through the approximate lash line, in addition to one suture through the area of the meibomian gland. Using the tapered needle, the tarsal plate was approximated and reapproximated. The incision was then reapproximated with subcuticular sutures. This was followed by implantation of approximately four interrupted skin sutures using 6-0 nylon.
