Abstract

Prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid “cherry eye” is caused by defects in the attachments between the third eyelid gland and periorbita. In this study, the aim was to evaluate the characteristics of cases and clinical outcomes of Morgan’s pocket technique in the treatment of dogs with prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid. In this context, the characteristics of the cases were examined in 12 dogs diagnosed with “cherry eye”. The breeds were Cane Corso, Beagle, Shih Tzus, Maltese, Central Asian Shepherd Dog and mixed breed. All dogs underwent surgical treatment with Morgan’s pocket technique, and the clinical results, recurrence and complications were evaluated in all 12 dogs (20 eyes).The success rate of the 12 patients (20 eyes) without recurrence was 100% (12 cases). The complication rate in terms of infection was 8% (one eye). Based on the results of this study, it was concluded that the Morgan’s pocket technique can be considered a reliable procedure for the repositioning of a prolapsed gland of the third eyelid. This technique is easily applicable with a high success rate. Due to the low recurrence and complication rates, it can be considered a highly reliable technique.
