Endoscopic Corneal Neurotization: Cadaver Feasibility Study.


Journal Article

The authors describe a cadaver feasibility study investigating a minimally invasive technique for corneal neurotization with the supraorbital nerve harvested endoscopically.A cadaver study was performed to investigate the technical feasibility of corneal neurotization via endoscopic supraorbital nerve transfer to the corneoscleral limbus.Endoscopic corneal neurotization was successfully performed on each cadaveric hemiface.The use of an endoscope allows for a minimally invasive approach to corneal neurotization with the supraorbital nerve.
