Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: To investigate the Cynomolgus monkey eyelid as an experimental model for oculoplastic surgery METHODS: Eyelid and periocular tissue were removed from Cynomolgus monkeys being euthanized. After fixation, the macroscopic and microscopic characteristics of the Cynomolgus monkey eyelid were studied. RESULTS: Macroscopic and microscopic characteristics of the Cynomolgus monkey eyelids were described. The Cynomolgus monkey eyelid bears resemblance to the human eyelid in its compartmentalization and complexity. CONCLUSIONS: The Cynomolgus monkey eyelid is a suitable experimental research model. Its compartmentalization resembles that of the human eyelid both microscopically and macroscopically.
