These muscles are responsible for the movement of the eyeball and the superior eyelid
. These muscles pull on the eyeball so that both eyes converge on a single vision field (Cohen and Hull, 2016).
Superior eyelid entropium and blepharochalasis were seen in one patient during followup.
Malign tumours of periocular area are localized in the inferior eyelid, medial cantus and superior eyelid, respectively .
Tissues similar to normal eyelid structure have to be used in reconstructing superior eyelid full thickness defects .
The records of patients that had the Cutler-Beard procedure after superior eyelid malign tumour excision between March 2009 and January 2013 were examined retrospectively in Dr.
Patients whose defects occupied less than 50% of the superior eyelid were excluded from the study.
The Cutler-Beard flap was applied to patients with more than 50% of superior eyelid loss after surgical excision of the tumour.
The Cutler-Beard flap was prepared from the inferior eyelid below tars in order to be compatible with superior eyelid defect by doing a horizontal incision.
The four patients included in this study had the Cutler-Beard procedure after malign tumour excision from the superior eyelid at the Ankara Oncology Education and Research Hospital, Ophthalmology Clinic, between March 2009 and January 2013.
