SCHOENAU, Luciana Silveira Flores; PIPPI, Ney Luís  e  SCHOSSLER, João Eduardo Valau. PREUMINAR CLINICAL EVALUATION OF COMPARATIVE CLOSURE OF CORNEAL INCISIONS WITH SUTURE AND BIOFILL (CELLULOSIS PELICULLAE). Cienc. Rural [online]. 1993, vol.23, n.2, pp.173-177. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84781993000200010.

The cellulosis Biofill membrane, which has been utilized as a temporary substitute for skin in esthetic and repair surgery, has recently been tested in ophthalmology. With the objective to obtain an alternative for sutures that require the opening of the cornea through the anterior chamber, a comparative study was done to relate the closure of corneal incision by the use of suture and with the aid of Biofill. Five dogs, of unknow breed, and with varying weight and age, were used to perform these incisions. In one eye, the incision was closed with Biofill, while on the other a simple continuous suture was done. An analysis of the results was obtained by daily clinical examination and by use of ophthalmoscopy. The results obtained with the use of cellulosis Biofill pellicle (film) on the closure of corneal incisions, proved to be more efficient in comparison to' incisions closed by the usage of suture.

Palavras-chave : ophthalmic surgery; cornea; biofill; incision.
