This study was to evaluate the effectiveness of autogenous dermis graft in managing the exposed porous orbital implants. METHOD: Nine cases with exposed orbital implants(hydroxyapatite or Medpor(R)) were included in this study: six cases with hydroxyapatite and the remaining three cases with Medpor(R). Each of the cases was repaired with autogenous dermis graft. RESULTS: The mean follow-up was 13.3 months. Of nine cases, seven implants remained covered at the last visit. During the follow-up period, three of them received a second dermis patch graft surgery for re-exposure. The final success rate was 77.7%. CONCLUSION: These results suggested that autogenous dermis graft served as an excellent material for repair of the exposed porous orbital implants.
Key Words: Exposed porous orbital implants(Hydroxyapatite and Medpor(R));Autogenous dermis graft
