Figure 3: The graft is positioned with the perichondral side facing internal, so that it is in direct contact with the conjunctiva. The graft is then sutured to the tarsal stumps and residual eyelid conjunctiva with absorbable (Vicryl Rapid 7/0) stitches; the flap (Mustardé’s flap) is harvested and ready to cover the graft and the soft tissue defect.
