A NEW APPROACH TO ENUCLEATION TECHNIQUE
The role of primary enucleation in acute trauma remains controversial, particularly when a patient's mental status may be altered or he is unable to consent. Many surgeons advocate for primary closure of an open globe with later consideration for an enucleation if the eye remains no light perception or is severely disfigured. Enucleation of an eye can be associated with significant psychological trauma, and this approach provides the patient to consider his options and the pros and cons of enucleation after the initial trauma and any altered mental status has resolved and provides autonomy to elect this operation in the future.
A new approach to enucleation technique consisting in eye enucleation with autoimplantation was performed At Pediatric department of the Filatov Institute of NAMS of Ukraine.
The proposed method provides the possibility of forming a spherical autoimplant in children. Due to the preliminary modeling, it is possible to achieve the desired size and sphericity of the autoimplant
