Abstract

Frontalis sling surgery was performed on a 2-year-old girl with congenital ptosis. During surgery, the tip of the Wright fascia needle broke off as it was being passed between incisions within the eyebrow. The tip was difficult to locate and retrieve through the original incision and was finally located with an electromagnet and removed through an enlarged incision.
