PMID:  334018     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The Wies procedure may be complicated by an overcorrection, which is in effect a cicatricial ectropion. Four cases of such a complication are presented. The mechanism of an overcorrection is related to the level of the incision in the lid and to the suture placement. Correction of this complication primarily involves lysing cicatricial bands maintaining the overcorrection. Placement of sutures maintains the lid in a normal position.
