Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The application of temporary sutures placed through the tarsus of the lower eyelid are well documented in the Oculoplastic and Dermatologic surgery literature. They are generally used as a suspension suture (Frost suture) to reduce the risk of ectropion due to wound contraction after reconstructive procedures involving the lower eyelid.(1-5) The use of temporary sutures to facilitate Mohs surgical extirpation of eyelid tumours has not previously been described.
