A clinical study on outcome of prosthetic implant following evisceration
Aim: This study was done to assess the outcome of PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) orbital implants following evisceration.
Study design: Interventional.
Place of study: Department of ophthalmology, RIO, RIMS, Ranchi.
Material and Method: Modified technique of evisceration was done in 37 patients who presented with various causes of painful blind eye. Post operative performance of implant was assessed in terms of motility, extrusion rates and other complications.
Results: In this study, out of 37 patients, 25 had good movement of prosthesis and 12 had fair motility. Extrusion rate was nil.
Conclusion: Evisceration with modified technique followed by placement of PMMA orbital implant can be an effective treatment for painful blind eyes with excellent post operative outcome.
