Intravitreal suture: A complication of pterygium surgery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Among the complications associated with pterygium surgery, scleral perforation is mentioned in cases where subconjunctival tissue must be separated from the sclera.(1,2) We present a case in which such a perforation and consequent suturing resulted in an intravitreous migration of a suture. We believe this is the first report of such a complication following pterygium surgery.
