Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the effects of surgery for conjunctival lymphangiectasia using a high-frequency radio wave electrosurgical unit. Methods: A retrospective chart review of 27 eyes of 27 patients who received surgery for conjunctival lymphangiectasia using a high-frequency radio wave electrosurgical unit (Ellman Surgitron®, Ellman International, Inc., Hewlett, NY, USA) from January 2013 to September 2017 was performed. Results: A total of 25 of 27 cases (92.6%) were treated successfully, of which 2 (7.4%) were recurrent cases. Reoperation using the same method was performed in one of the recurrent cases and the patient was successfully cured. Intraoperative or postoperative complication was not noted. Conclusions: Surgery for conjunctival lymphangiectasia using a high-frequency radio wave electrosurgical device is a simple, cheap, safe, and effective procedure.
