The objective of this pilot study was to examine the usefulness of limbal autograft
transplantation (LCAT) in the treatment of recurrent pterygium. Eleven eyes with advanced
recurrent pterygium underwent LCAT. All eyes were previously treated at least
two times either by simple excision (10) or conjunctival rotation autograft (1). In two
eyes (18.18%) symblepharon was present at the time of surgery, therefore LCAT was
combined with amniotic membrane transplantation. Limbal-conjunctival autograft
was taken from supero-lateral part of the same eye and transferred to the area where
pterygium was excised. No intraoperative complications occurred. In ten eyes (90.9%) no
pterygium recurrence was recorded during the follow-up time, and one (9.1%) recurrence
was recorded after 5 months. In two eyes with combined symblepharon formation
remission of both pterygium and symblepharon growth was obtained. LCAT proved to
be a promising and safe procedure in recurrent pterygium treatment.
