    The use of a Mersilene mesh sling in brow suspension ptosis surgery is presented. Seventeen cases of severe blepharoptosis have been treated by means of this sling with favourable results. Materials used in brow suspension procedures are categorised and discussed, and it is concluded that the Mersilene sling is an alternative to those currently available for the management of severe blepharoptosis requiring brow suspension surgery.
