Abstract

PICO question

In dogs undergoing surgery for repair of a prolapsed gland of the third eyelid (cherry eye), is a pocket technique superior to an anchoring technique in preventing recurrence?

Clinical bottom line

For surgical treatment of a prolapsed gland of the third eyelid (cherry eye), there is currently no evidence to suggest that either an anchoring technique or a pocket technique is significantly better than the other when comparing recurrence rates. In practice, and until randomised controlled trials are carried out, veterinary surgeon preference and previous experience would be the relevant factors in choosing which operation to perform.
