Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Salivary Gland and Labial Mucous Membrane Transplantation
    Minor salivary glands (SG) will be obtain "en block" from the same donor site, at the inferior or superior labial mucous membrane, above the orbicularis oris muscle to correct lubrication. The thin split thickness graft of mucous membrane will be suture to the sclera with absorbable sutures
Detailed Description:

This study was performed to evaluate the use of salivary gland and labial mucous membrane transplantation in patients with severe symblepharon and dry eye secondary to SJS. Labial mucous membrane and salivary gland transplantation showed to be a good option in the treatment of severe symblepharon and dry eye secondary to SJS. labial mucous membrane, salivary glands, symblepharon, entropion, transplantation, graft.
