This book provides an opportunity to view and learn techniques such as extensive tenectomy, narrow strip conjunctival autograft, sandwich technique, autologous blood, mini-flap technique and minor ipsilateral simple limbal epithelial transplantation (mini-SLET) Despite the advances, challenges still persist in the management recurrent pterygium. The techniques described in this book for the management of the recurrent pterygium include conjunctival excision with limbal conjunctival autograft with or without mitomycin C/ amniotic membrane graft, combined ipsilateral autologous limbus and homologous amniotic membrane transplantation for recurrent symblepharopterygium and ‘sealing the gap.
