  1. pmc Trichiasis surgery in The Gambia: a 4-year prospective study
    Saul N Rajak
    London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 51:4996-5001. 2010
    ..Although trichiasis surgery can reduce the risk of blindness, retrospective data suggest that long-term recurrence rates may be high. A 4-year prospective investigation of recurrent trichiasis was conducted in The Gambia...
  2. pmc The outcome of trachomatous trichiasis surgery in Ethiopia: risk factors for recurrence
    Saul N Rajak
    The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    PLoS Negl Trop Dis 7:e2392. 2013
    ..We investigated the outcomes (recurrence rates and other complications) of posterior lamellar tarsal rotation (PLTR) surgery, one of the two most widely practised TT procedures in endemic settings...
  3. pmc Trachomatous trichiasis and its management in endemic countries
    Saul N Rajak
    International Centre for Eye Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK
    Surv Ophthalmol 57:105-35. 2012
    ..We examine the principles of clinical management, treatment options, and the challenging issues of providing the quantity and quality of surgery that is needed in resource-poor settings...
  4. pmc Epilation for trachomatous trichiasis and the risk of corneal opacification
    Saul N Rajak
    The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    Ophthalmology 119:84-9. 2012
    ..However, epilation is widely practiced for treating minor TT (1-5 lashes touching the globe). We report the frequency and effectiveness of patient-initiated epilation and its relationship to corneal opacity...
  5. pmc Surgery versus epilation for the treatment of minor trichiasis in Ethiopia: a randomised controlled noninferiority trial
    Saul N Rajak
    The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    PLoS Med 8:e1001136. 2011

    Saul N Rajak
    The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    PLoS Med 8:e1001137. 2011
    ..Trichiasis can recur after corrective surgery. We tested the hypothesis that using absorbable sutures instead of silk sutures might reduce the risk of recurrent disease among patients with major trichiasis in a randomised trial...

    Saul N Rajak
    The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 52:7974-80. 2011
