Homologous vs Autogenous Fascial Grafts for Scleral Buckling

Homologous vs Autogenous Fascial Grafts for Scleral Buckling Abstract To the Editor. —Dresner et al1 describe a technique for dealing with exposed buckling elements in patients having had previous retinal surgery. They recommend using autogenous fascia grafts.I would like to point out that homologous fascia grafts would be just as useful and would eliminate the need to subject the patient to a second procedure. At the Ohio State University, Columbus, we have used homologous fascia lata strips for more than 30 years in retinal and plastic surgery.2 The fascia is harvested from postmortem donors and frozen in antibiotic solution. The fascia may be stored from months to years without apparent degradation of the integrity of the collagen structure.
