OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of frontal muscle aponeurosis flap suspension surgery for severe congenital ptosis in children.
METHODS: Recent results of 30 cases (45 eyes) of children with severe congenital ptosis were evaluated and follow-up observation was conducted.
RESULTS: One week after the surgery, the success rate was 97.7% and it was 95.5% after three months.
CONCLUSION: The suspension of frontal muscle aponeurosis should be the first choice for children with severe congenital ptosis for its simplicity, safety and fewer complications.
