SANZ LOPEZ, A  y  SALES SANZ, M. Double scleral covering evisceration. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.5, pp.273-276. ISSN 0365-6691.

Purpose: To describe a surgical technique for evisceration that allows the use of large size implants, reducing risk of exposure. Material and Methods: We analize the results of 22 eviscerations with Medpor implants with double scleral covering. Results: We managed to use implants of 20 and 22 mm, sometimes in very small anophthalmic cavities, without complications. Conclusions: Double scleral covering evisceration is a surgical technique that allows the use of large size implants, reducing the risk of exposure.

Palabras clave : Evisceration; Porous Polyethylene implant; scleral covering; anophthalmic cavity.
