Abstract

Summary:

For medial canthal tendon reattachment, many kinds of surgical technique have previously been reported. They are complicated and generally require technical skill and prolonged operating times. We, for the first time, describe a novel device, the Caraji Anchor Suture System, used for reattaching the medial canthal tendon to the medial orbital wall after removal of squamous cell carcinoma. The medial canthal tendon was excellently fixed with this rapid and simple method. No complications, such as local infection or exposure, have occurred up to the present. This technique appears to be safe, fast, and effective for reconstruction of the medial canthus after tendon avulsion or loss from excision of cutaneous carcinoma in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
