The Berghaus/Schrom Lid-Chain is an implant to restore dynamic closure of the eye in cases of lagophtalmus resulting from facial paralysis.
The implant is in the form of chain and thus the malleability results in an optimal adaption to the form of the tarsus. The pre-drilled holes are to be used for easier fixation. Using platinum and iridium has many advantages over the commonly used gold implants, particularly when considering weight distribution and biocompatibility.
The combination of the materials and the chain form is reflected in the above-average results and lower rate of complications.

Different weights are offered from 0.6 g to 2.0 g in 0.2 g increments. The appropriate weight is determined by preoperative fitting. For this purpose, test weights are used, which are glued to the upper lid to determine a sufficient lid closure.
