In the correction of congenital blepharoptosis, there are banked fascia lata, silicone band or rod, palmaris longus tendon, Gore-Tex, Mersilene, Supramid and etc. used for frontalis suspension. A retrospective study on the results and recurrences of 63 patients[79 eyes] who were diagnosed as congenital blepharoptosis and received frontalis suspension with Supramid Extra II(r) from Jan.1994 to Dec.1998. was done. The patients were consisted of 36 males and 27 females and the average age at the time of operation was 18 months[3.5 months~58 months]. The postoperative results were satisfactory in all the patients, yet recurrence was found in 26 patients between 4.5 months and 56 months after surgery. The results of 48 patients who could be followed up for over a year showed a 52%[25 patients] recurrence rate with a mean follow-up time of 41.3 months. The mean recurrence time was 30.7 months after operation. The use of Supramid Extra II(r) in frontalis suspension has benefit such as easy availability and favorable handling characteristics, but due to its high recurrence rate, it prompts the need for patient education and a follow-up period of over 4 years.
