Removal of Epithelial Ingrowth via Central Perforating Wound Tract 6 Years Post LASIK
Eye & Contact Lens: Science and Clinical Practice, 07/06/2012
Meskin SW et al. – The authors report a case of a novel approach for the removal of central interface epithelial ingrowth caused by a perforating corneal injury 6 years after laser–assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Access to a large central area of epithelial ingrowth under a LASIK flap was achieved through the wound tract from a perforating corneal injury. Suturing of the central LASIK flap in a similar manner commonly carried out peripherally was then performed to prevent recurrent epithelial ingrowth. The offending epithelial ingrowth was removed with no recurrence over a 1–year follow–up.
