Growth of meibomian gland tissue after intraductal meibomian gland probing in patients with obstructive meibomian gland dysfunction

British Journal of Ophthalmology | September 12, 2017

Maskin SL, et al. - The effect of meibomian gland probing (MGP) on meibomian gland (MG) area from the upper lids of patients with obstructive meibomian gland dysfunction (o-MGD) was researched in this study. It was concluded that the MGP was related to increased MG tissue area and growth of atrophied MGs as viewed on meibography. MGP provides unequivocal physical evidence of a patent meibum outflow tract through the natural orifice and may promote glandular growth in part by the direct mechanical establishment of a patent duct/orifice system.
