FRIAS BANQUERIS, Roberto; REMON REYES, Elizabeth; FUTIEL OFARRIS, Niurka  y  HERNANDEZ MARINO, Luis Alberto. Results of the surgical treatment of malignant tumors of the lower eyelid. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2008, vol.47, n.2. ISSN 0034-7493.

INTRODUCTION. The objective of this paper is to describe the surgical treatment of the malignant lesions localized in the lower eyelid with an extension over 25 % and propagation to the medial and external edges. METHODS. A multidisciplinary team of «Celia Sánchez Manduley» Hospital (Manzanillo) conducted a descriptive and prospective study from January 2001 to December 2006. 19 patients that fulfilled the inclusion criterion were selected for the study. They were previously assessed and they gave their informed consent to take part in the study. Variables such as age, sex, surgical technique used, localization, anatomopathological result, complications and final result were described. Patients will be followed up for at least 5 years. RESULTS. A mild predominance of males and of ages over 50 was found. The wedge resection of the tumor followed by Mustardé's cheek flap reconstruction technique was the elective technique. 79 % of the tumors proved to be basocellular carcinoma. Partial necropsy of the flap and hematoma were the most frequent complications. The patients have been followed up without relapse or tumoral resistance. CONCLUSIONS. The surgical treatment by Mustardé's technique combined with other techniques carried out by a multidisciplinary team is ideal for the surgery of lower eyelid cancer.
