AbstractPURPOSE: To describe a novel approach to internal repair of lower lid entropion using the Putterman clamp. METHODS: Retrospective, consecutive case series of patients with entropion who underwent retractor advancement using the clamp. RESULTS: Seven eyes of 6 patients (average age: 80; 4 women and 2 men) were analyzed. Complete resolution was achieved in 5 of the 6 patients (83.3%). The 1 patient with recurrence had 2 previous entropion surgeries on each eye over the past 4 years; there was lid laxity, and horizontal tightening was needed. No severe adverse events occurred in the patients. CONCLUSION: Clamp-assisted lower lid retractor advancement offers a safe and effective, minimally invasive approach to involutional entropion. Further study is needed to assess its role in recurrent entropion.
