simple conjunctival closure (SCC) and rotational conjunctival flap
The scleral graft should be accompanied by conjunctival flap
, because it provides vascularization, avoids epithelial loss, maintains the graft integrity and acts in the prophylaxis of the infection (LEWIN, 1999; TI & TAN, 2003; OZCAN et al., 2005).
Either a limbus or fornix based conjunctival flap
was fashioned after which two Mitomycin soaked pledgetts were placed subconjunctivally for five minutes and irrigated copiously with BSS.
Complications such as lacrimation, inflammation, photophobia, conjunctival erythema, conjunctival flap
edema, conjunctival graft loss, subconjunctival hemorrhage, corneal dellen, severe conjunctival or corneal scarring, and systemic complications were counted.
The sloughed graft was removed and a regrafting was done using a conjunctival flap
 from the fellow eye.
Following stabilization of the globe with a 8/0 vicryl traction suture placed in the superior limbus, a conjunctival flap
was created based at the fornix.

. Ophthalmology 1999; 106: 817-21.
Seven days later, when the neovascularization in the iris and the angle regressed significantly, we created a limbus-based conjunctival flap
For phacoTbx, the fornix-based conjunctival flap
approach was adopted in all cases.

A fornix based conjunctival flap
was made and bleeding episcleral vessels were cauterized.
