Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of transcalvarial suture fixation during endoscopic repair of brow ptosis.

DESIGN:

Case series.

SETTINGS:

A private ambulatory surgicenter and a Veterans Affairs Hospital.

PARTICIPANTS:

Fifty patients with brow ptosis with minimum follow-up of 12 months.

RESULTS:

Patients had improvement in brow position in all cases. There were no adverse effects of performing cortical tunnels and suture fixation.

CONCLUSION:
