  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In operation for pterygium, it is important to dissect the head of pterygium including the surrounding healthy cornea, and not leaving any part of it around the limbs.

The exposed sclera, which is left after the excision of the subconjunctival pterygium, must be covered by healthy conjunctival flaps. Excessive tension on the conjunctiva caused by tight suture should be avoided.

A gap between the conjunctival flaps and the limbs should be kept. I like the Komoto's method in which a rectangular pedicle flap is made from the upper conjunctiva.
