1/2. Repair of the upper eyelid by means of the prepuce after severe burns.

    burns to the eyelid often constitute difficult problems for reconstruction or repair. Functional and aesthetic aspects have to be considered, and suitable donor sites are not readily available in severely burned patients. In male patients, the prepuce yields an almost ideal skin for eyelid repair because of its high elasticity and adequate texture. Two patients with repair of both upper eyelids using the prepuce are demonstrated. The color match of this skin graft is satisfying. If both layers of the prepuce are transplanted, they yield enough tissue to cover both upper eyelids. This method seems to be an adequate method of reconstruction of burned eyelids in severely burned male patients when the usual donor sites for skin grafts are not available.

2/2. The use of preputial skin to replace conjunctiva and to correct ectropion.

    The prepuce can provide a large amount of soft delicate skin suitable for replacement of lost conjunctiva or in the surgical treatment of ectropion. Three typical examples of its uses are described: two of ectropion following burns and one case with a carcinoma of the conjunctive which was excised and replaced with a free graft from the inner lining layer of the prepuce.
