1905 Excerpt: ...the transplantation on the lidsurface of skin-Haps
from the cheek or temple, or Wolfe flaps, or grafting rabbit's
conjunctiva or mucous membrane from the mouth, ophthalmic surgeons
have employed Thiersch grafts with a fair measure of success. Such
grafts form an ideal tissue for lining the wound surfaces of eyelid
and eyeball in cases of symblepharon, and they form the most
suitable means of restoring space for the artificial eye in cases
of cicatricial orbit. The reports of Hotz2, Morton3, May4,
Axenfeld6, Lindstroem6, Natanson7. and Woodruff," whose cases have
been published, and my unpublished ones, show admirable results.
Since the same principles apply in cicatricial orbit, I feel that
such cases are now legitimate ones for surgical treatment. Weeks9
has recently reported cases successfully operated by sewing Wolfe
flaps to the periosteum of the orbital margin. This is a very
tedious and complicated procedure. After the Hap has been anchored,
a suitable plate is placed in the cul-de-sac, and is kept there
until the time arrives for the insertion of the artificial eye.
