Pyogenic Granuloma After Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty: A Case Report

    loading  Checking for direct PDF access through Ovid



This is the first known report of a relatively large postoperative pyogenic granuloma developing after a nonsutured transconjunctival blepharoplasty. Inflammation and separation or malapposition of the conjunctival wound edges probably permitted the lesion to proliferate in the inferior fornix. No foreign material could be implicated because no suture was used to close this incision. Additionally, Polydek suture material (braided polyester fiber) was associated with the complication of a suture tract and granuloma when used for a tarsal suspension procedure for ectropion repair in this patient.
