Objective: Four Petal Evisceration Inphthisical Eyes.
Study Design: Retrospective Study.
Place And Duration of Study: Armed Forces Institute Of Ophthalmology, Rawalpindi Pakistan, from Jan 2022 to Apr 2022.
Methodology: A total of 20 subjects underwent evisceration with four petal technique. The record was collected from record room and data was analyzed. After 360º conjunctival peritomy, a larger orbital implant was placed for good cosmesis and to achieve maximum ocular motility. Axial length (AL) of normal eye was measured and compared with AL of atrophic eye. An orbital implant 3mm smaller than the axial length of the normal eye was placed. Implant was closed with 4 coverings to prevent extrusion. SPSS version 22.0 was used for data analysis.
Results: Out of n=20 patients with atrophia bulbi, females 11(55%) and males 9(45%). About 12(60%) were right eyes and
08(40%) were left eyes. Mean SD age of patient was 35.1±17.01 years. An implant of 18mm, 20mm and 22mm were used after calculation of axial length. Axial length of normal eye was used for the selection of size of implant. However, follow up was done from 4-18 months respectively.
Conclusion: Evisceration with four petals remains the procedure of choice due to better cosmesis and good motility.
