Single-pass four-throw technique for pupilloplasty

Abstract

Purpose

To describe a surgical technique for performing pupilloplasty.

Methods

In this surgical technique for pupilloplasty, after a single pass of needle through the edges of iris defect along the pupillary margin, the suture end is passed through the loop with 4 throws, creating a helical configuration in modified Siepser slipknot technique that is self-retaining and self-locking.

Results

The technique was performed in 27 cases and the loop did not open in any of the cases in the 6-month follow-up period. No case of iritis was seen. The iris tissue was seen well approximated to each other in all cases.

Conclusions

The single-pass 4-throw technique serves as an effective method to perform pupilloplasty.
