Abstract

In 14 dogs' eyes, silicone rubber prostheses strengthened with Dacron mesh were successfully inserted aspartial tendon substitutes for the lateral rectus muscles. Although preparations tended to have fewer adhesions to the globe after longer periods in vivo, in all but one case some adhesions remained. These probably would prevent the prostheses from functioning perfectly as tendons, even though a sheath were formed, aroundthe prosthesis in each case.
