Records of 100 dogs that were affected by prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid and surgically treated with fixation of prolapsed nictitans glands were reviewed. Eyes surgically treated were 132: in 35 eyes the gland was anchored to the periosteum of the ventral orbital rim (group A),in 36 eyes the gland was buried in a pocket within the conjunctiva of the nictitans (group P), and in 61 eyes gland was buried in a conjunctival pocket after the resection of the conjunctival tissue that covers the prolapsed gland (group C). Group P and C had a statistically lower reprolapse rate. In all groups there was a significant reduction of Shirmer tear test values at 14 days after surgery, although values were always in physiological range. All procedures resulted in good cosmetic effects 1 month after surgery.

Abstract

Records of 100 dogs that were affected by prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid and surgically treated with fixation of prolapsed nictitans glands were reviewed. Eyes surgically treated were 132: in 35 eyes the gland was anchored to the periosteum of the ventral orbital rim (group A),in 36 eyes the gland was buried in a pocket within the conjunctiva of the nictitans (group P), and in 61 eyes gland was buried in a conjunctival pocket after the resection of the conjunctival tissue that covers the prolapsed gland (group C). Group P and C had a statistically lower reprolapse rate. In all groups there was a significant reduction of Shirmer tear test values at 14 days after surgery, although values were always in physiological range. All procedures resulted in good cosmetic effects 1 month after surgery.
