Abstract

Purpose:

The authors describe a cadaver feasibility study investigating a minimally invasive technique for corneal neurotization with the supraorbital nerve harvested endoscopically.

Methods:

A cadaver study was performed to investigate the technical feasibility of corneal neurotization via endoscopic supraorbital nerve transfer to the corneoscleral limbus.

Results:

Endoscopic corneal neurotization was successfully performed on each cadaveric hemiface.

Conclusion:

The use of an endoscope allows for a minimally invasive approach to corneal neurotization with the supraorbital nerve.
