To evaluate the result and complications of autogenous temporalis fascia grafting and conjunctival flap transposition as a treatment of scleromalacia after pterygium excision. METHODS: We used autogenous temporalis fascia and conjunctival flap to treat scleromalacia of 9 patients(9 eyes) who underwent pterygium excision and checked the postoperative result and complications. RESULTS: We could keep the temporalis fascia graft without necrosis during follow-up examination. Pain, inflammation and scleral discoloration were disappeared after temporalis fascia grafting in all cases. Postoperative complications were included 2 cases of progression of cataract and 1 case of mild chamber inflammation. CONCLUSIONS: We obtained good surgical result of scleromalacia after pterygium excision by autogenous temporalis fascia grafting with conjunctival flap transposition.
