Dry eyes are one of the most frequent problems in patients over 50 years old, although even younger patients can suffer from dry eyes. Artificial tears or gels provide a partial or temporary solution.
However, when conventional treatments for very dry eyes fail Dr. Raus’ technique of transplanting the labial salivary glands to the inner side of the eyelids promises to be an excellent alternative.
This surgical technique was developed by Prof. Juan Murube, from the famous Alcalá University of Madrid in Spain, and modified by Dr Peter Raus by using radiosurgery and a running suture rather than separate ones.
With the patient under general anaesthesia, a specimen of labial mucous membrane of the lower lip and the underlying glands is removed and transplanted to the inner, conjunctival side of the eyelid. The patient need only stay in the hospital for one night, and the stitches can be removed after two weeks.
When the stitches are removed, most patients notice an immediate improvement, and are able to reduce artificial tear treatment.
