PURPOSE: To describe an innovative technique of lateral canthal tendon (LCT) anchoring to the lateral orbital rim on its inner aspect using a "lasso" technique, in order to provide the ideal vector.
METHODS: A retrospective case review of seven patients (n = 7), performed from 2009 to 2013 at our institution by the senior author (RGS).
RESULTS: Excellent results in all cases with optimal restoration of form and function.
CONCLUSIONS: The 'Leicester Lasso' technique is a safer technique of securing the LCT to the orbital rim.
