Abstract

PURPOSE: The authors describe a cadaver feasibility study investigating a minimally invasive technique for corneal neurotization with the supraorbital nerve harvested endoscopically.

METHODS: A cadaver study was performed to investigate the technical feasibility of corneal neurotization via endoscopic supraorbital nerve transfer to the corneoscleral limbus.

RESULTS: Endoscopic corneal neurotization was successfully performed on each cadaveric hemiface.

CONCLUSION: The use of an endoscope allows for a minimally invasive approach to corneal neurotization with the supraorbital nerve.
