Thieme; 2017. doi:10.1055/b-006-149756Comment: Ideally, wound healing allows injured tissues to repair, regenerate, and return to their normal functional and anatomical state. In some cases this is not possible, as for example in wounds involving the retina or lens of the eye. In other cases, scar formation will allow for structural stability but not a return of function. In the case of a foreign body, or an implant, wound healing often involves the development of fibrous encapsulation. In this process, the foreign material becomes surrounded by a dense, hypovascular fibrous capsule, effectively isolating it from normal surrounding tissues.

Yoon, 2020Source: Freitag S, Lefebvre D, Lee N et al., ed. Eyelid Reconstruction. 1st Edition. Thieme; 2020. doi:10.1055/b-006-160141Comment: Mohs surgery is a technique used to treat skin cancers that provides complete margin evaluation while sparing surrounding normal tissue and is the treatment of choice for many periorbital tumors. Utilizing Mohs surgery, tumors can be removed and defects repaired the same day with the lowest possible risk of recurrence.
