LEON RODRIGUEZ, Yamilé. Whole repair made in the upper eyelid using a frontal flap. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2009, vol.48, n.4. ISSN 0034-7493.

Patients underwent to surgical resections from cancer and whole thickness burn lesions or avulsion traumata with an extent loss of tissues which shape the upper eyelid, came with a relative frequency to consultation due to corneal exposition and this exposition resulting in ulcerations, scar, and blindness. These patients are very unsatisfied because they can not use of an ocular prosthesis, and something less important, the big aesthetic defect. Authors present the case of a male patient aged 30 with multiple lesions from explosion of an explosive artifact with loss of right upper eyelid and ocular enucleation. A total palpebral reconstruction was performed using a frontal dermal fatty flap with good aesthetic results.

Keywords : Palpebral reconstruction; dermal fatty flap.
