Ortadoğu Tıp Dergisi
Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of autologous serum and dexpanthenol gel on subjective symptoms after pterygium surgery. Methods: An evaluation was made of patients who underwent the same technique of pterygium surgery between June 2017 and December 2017. Patients were divided into 2 groups with autologous serum used postoperatively in Group 1 (n: 18) and 5% dexpanthenol gel in Group 2 (n: 12). Evaluation was made of both groups in respect of postoperative pain,
... operative pain, stinging, irritation, redness and graft edema. Results: There was no statistically significant difference between the groups in respect of pain, stinging and watering on the 1st, 3rd and 7th days. A statistically significant decrease in these complaints was observed on days 3 and 7 in the group using dexpanthenol. There was no statistically significant difference between the groups on days 1, 3 and 7in respect of redness and graft edema. In both groups, a statistically significant increase was determined in these findings on days 3 and 7. Conclusion: After pterygium surgery, many agents increase the comfort of patients. Autologous serum is the most reliable and most investigated agent. Dexpanthenolmay be an alternative to anterior segment surgery in respect of patient comfort and wound healing.
