Blepharoptosis correction with frontalis suspension using a supramid sling: duration of effect.

PURPOSE: To investigate the duration of effect after frontalis suspension with a Supramid (S. Jackson, Inc, Alexandria, Virginia) sling. METHOD: We reviewed 81 consecutive patients (40 males, 41 females), aged 6 months to 50 years (mean, 12 years) with upper eyelid blepharoptosis who underwent frontalis suspension with Supramid sling surgery at a major eye center. RESULTS: Fifty patients had unilateral and 31 patients had bilateral blepharoptosis repair. Forty-three (53%) of the 81 patients had postoperative follow-up of 3 to 12 years; all these patients had a recurrence of blepharoptosis to the preoperative level 1 to 18 months postoperatively. CONCLUSION: Blepharoptosis correction with frontalis suspension with Supramid sling has a temporary effect, and use of this procedure for blepharoptosis correction should be discouraged.[1]
