Abstract

In surgery of the ocular anterior segment, the authors describe two conditions in which, in their opinion, fibrin sealant is indicated. These are:
  1. a)

    in lamellar graft for the correction of spontaneous or traumatic perforation in highly vascularized and infiltrated corneas, and, in selected cases, in corneas with or without limited vascularization;

     
  2. b)

    in surgery for keratoprosthesis, where fibrin sealant is used to improve the support, whether biological (osteo-odontokeratoprosthesis) or acrylic (polymethylmethacrylate), and its cohesion with the anterior segment.
