Aim: To compare the efficacy and the complications of Conjunctival Limbal Autograft (CLAU) with mitomycin C 0.02% and
Amniotic Membrane Transplantation (AMT) with mitomycin C 0.02% for treatment of re-current pterigum.
Methods: 80 eyes of 60 patients with recurrent pterigum were divided into two groups , Group A, included 40 eyes underwent
pterigum excision and MMC with CLAU, Group B, included 40 eyes underwent pterigum excision and MMC with AMT.
Recurrence was defined as fibrovascular tissue extension of more than one mm onto the cornea in the area of previously excised
pterigum after period of follow up from 6-9 months. Recurrence was compared in each group by using test.
Results: No major post-operative complications occurred during 6-9 months of follow-up. In CLAU group (A), only 5 eyes of
recurrence occur (12.5%) after 7 months of follow up. Recurrence occur in 12 eyes (30%) in AMT group (B) after 6 months (P
Conclusion: CLAU with MMC is more effective than AMT with MMC for treatment of recurrent pterygium.
