Quality assessment of optic nerve sheath diameter ultrasonography: Scoping literature review and Delphi protocol.

J Neuroimaging 2022 Jun 16. Epub 2022 Jun 16.

Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care, Policlinico San Martino, Genova, Italy.

Background And Purpose: The optic nerve is surrounded by the extension of meningeal coverings of the brain. When the pressure in the cerebrospinal fluid increases, it causes a distention of the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD), which allows the use of this measurement by ultrasonography (US) as a noninvasive surrogate of elevated intracranial pressure. However, ONSD measurements in the literature have exhibited significant heterogeneity, suggesting a need for consensus on ONSD image acquisition and measurement. We aim to establish a consensus for an ONSD US Quality Criteria Checklist (ONSD US QCC).

Methods: A scoping systematic review of published ultrasound ONSD imaging and measurement criteria was performed to guide the development of a preliminary ONSD US QCC that will undergo a modified Delphi study to reach expert consensus on ONSD quality criteria. The protocol of this modified Delphi study is presented in this manuscript.

Results: A total of 357 ultrasound studies were included in the review. Quality criteria were evaluated under five categories: probe selection, safety, positioning, image acquisition, and measurement.

Conclusions: This review and Delphi protocol aim to establish ONSD US QCC. A broad consensus from this process may reduce the variability of ONSD measurements in future studies, which would ultimately translate into improved ONSD clinical applications. This protocol was reviewed and endorsed by the German Society of Ultrasound in Medicine.

A Case of Spontaneous Bilateral Direct Carotid-Cavernous Fistula.

Cureus 2022 Apr 30;14(4):e24634. Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Department of Ophthalmology, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, USA.

A 92-year-old female with poorly controlled systemic hypertension presented with bilateral eye redness, lid fullness, conjunctival chemosis, ophthalmoplegia, and ptosis for two days. A neuro-ophthalmic evaluation revealed bilateral proptosis, severe conjunctival chemosis and congestion, and an almost complete bilateral ophthalmoplegia with a complete right superior eyelid ptosis. Computed tomography (CT) scans demonstrated bilateral dilation of the superior ophthalmic veins, and a CT angiography (CTA) showed a direct high-flow carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) with secondary extraocular muscle enlargement. Clinicians should be aware that a typical direct high-flow CCF, although usually occurs after trauma and unilaterally, can present spontaneously without trauma and bilaterally.

Unilateral Compressive Optic Neuropathy As the Presenting Manifestation of Clival Chordoma: A Case Report.

Cureus 2022 Apr 24;14(4):e24440. Epub 2022 Apr 24.

Ophthalmology, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, USA.

The optic nerve(s) may be compressed by a number of intracranial and intraorbital masses. Compression may be isolated to the optic nerve or may involve other intracranial or intraorbital structures with variable presentation. A 26-year-old man presented with complaints of progressive painless visual loss in the right eye for eight months. Examination revealed isolated unilateral optic atrophy consistent with a diagnosis of compressive optic neuropathy. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed compression of the anterior visual pathways due to a lesion radiologically compatible with clival chordoma. He underwent subtotal neurosurgical resection and pathology was consistent with chordoma. Although rare, isolated unilateral visual loss may be the only presenting manifestation of clival chordoma.

Giant cell arteritis versus Takayasu's Arteritis: Two sides of the same coin?

Saudi J Ophthalmol 2021 Jul-Sep;35(3):198-203. Epub 2022 Apr 18.

Department of Ophthalmology, Blanton Eye Institute, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX, USA.

There are multiple vasculitides which are distinguished based on multiple criteria, including size of affected vessels, distribution of vessels affected, histopathologic differences, genetic factors, and age at presentation. Takayasu's arteritis (TkA) and giant cell arteritis (GCA) are the two main medium to large vessel vasculitides. These vasculitides are associated with different racial predilections, vascular distributions, age groups, diagnostic criteria, and treatments. Nevertheless, the many shared histopathologic features, genetic factors, and overlap in presentation of these two diseases suggest that they may actually be variable presentations of the same disease process, i.e., large vessel vasculitis. This article will review the genetics, histopathology, disease mechanisms, and diagnostic criteria for both TkA and GCA. Overall, despite major advances our understanding of these two diseases, it is still debated whether these two large vessel vasculitides represent two distinct diseases processes or simply variations of the same disease.

Large-Vessel Vasculitis in Ophthalmology: Giant Cell Arteritis and Takayasu Arteritis.

Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2022 Mar-Apr 01;11(2):177-183

Department of Ophthalmology, Blanton Eye Institute, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX, US.

Abstract: Giant cell arteritis and Takayasu arteritis are large-vessel vasculitides that share multiple common features but also have significant differences in epidemiology, demographics, clinical presentation, evaluation, and treatment. Giant cell arteritis is more common in elderly patients of Caucasian descent versus Takayasu arteritis, which is more prevalent in younger patients of Asian descent. Although traditionally age has been the main criterion for differentiating the 2 etiologies, modifications in the diagnostic criteria have recognized the overlap between the 2 conditions. In this monograph, we review the diagnostic criteria for both conditions and describe the epidemiology, pathogenesis, histology, evaluation, and management for large-vessel vasculitis in ophthalmology. Additionally, we describe ocular imaging techniques that may be utilized by ophthalmologists to identify manifestations of large-vessel vasculiti- des in patients. Lastly, we compare and contrast the key clinical, laboratory, and pathologic features that might help ophthalmologists to differentiate the 2 entities.

Uveomeningeal syndrome presenting with bilateral optic disc edema and multiple evanescent white dots syndrome (MEWDS).

Am J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2022 Jun 20;26:101538. Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Blanton Eye Institute, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX, USA.

Purpose: To report a uveomeningeal syndrome with bilateral optic disc edema and a MEWDS-like presentation.

Observations: A 17-year-old female experienced daily fevers for 3 days (ranging from 101.4 F to 102 F), then received the first dose of the Pfizer SARS-CoV-2 vaccine nearly three weeks later. Within two days she experienced severe headaches with severity scale of 8/10. Retinal imaging at the time showed optic disc edema in both eyes (OU) and multifocal well-circumscribed chorioretinal white lesions in the periphery OU. Neuroimaging and routine infectious and inflammatory laboratory testing were normal. Lumbar puncture showed elevated opening pressure and cerebrospinal pleocytosis consistent with an aseptic meningitis. At follow up, one month later the symptoms and retinal findings resolved.

Conclusions: MEWDS is typically an idiopathic condition but can occur in the setting of viral illness. Although other white dot syndromes have been associated with uveomeningeal presentations, to our knowledge this is the first such case to be described in the English language ophthalmic literature.

A non-invasive approach to monitor anemia during long-duration spaceflight with retinal fundus images and deep learning.

Life Sci Space Res (Amst) 2022 May 19;33:69-71. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Human-Machine Perception Laboratory, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Nevada, Reno, Reno, Nevada, United States. Electronic address:

During spaceflight, astronauts can experience significantly higher levels of hemolysis. With future space missions exposing astronauts to longer periods of microgravity, such as missions to Mars, there will be a need to better understand this phenomenon. We have proposed that retinal fundus photography and deep learning may be utilized to help further understand this microgravity-induced, anemic process for future spaceflight. By utilizing astronaut and terrestrial analog metadata, a foundation can be built to develop an algorithm that allows for non-invasive retinal imaging to quantify hemoglobin levels and detect anemia during spaceflight. This approach would allow for a non-invasive retinal photograph that can be done frequently during spaceflight as opposed to an invasive blood draw and subsequent tests.

Neuro-ophthalmic imaging and visual assessment technology for spaceflight associated neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS).

Surv Ophthalmol 2022 Sep-Oct;67(5):1443-1466. Epub 2022 Apr 21.

Center for Space Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA; Department of Ophthalmology, Blanton Eye Institute, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX, USA; The Houston Methodist Research Institute, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX, USA; Departments of Ophthalmology, Neurology, and Neurosurgery, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, USA; Department of Ophthalmology, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX, USA; University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA; Texas A&M College of Medicine, TX, USA; Department of Ophthalmology, The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, IA, USA. Electronic address:

Spaceflight associated neuro-ocular syndrome (SANS) refers to a unique collection of neuro-ophthalmic clinical and imaging findings observed in astronauts after long-duration spaceflight. Current in-flight and postflight imaging modalities (e.g., optical coherence tomography, orbital ultrasound, and funduscopy) have played an instrumental role in the understanding and monitoring of SANS development; however, the precise etiology for this neuro-ophthalmic phenomenon is still not completely understood. SANS may be a potential barrier to future deep space missions, and therefore it is critical to further elucidate the underlying pathophysiology for effective countermeasures. The complexity and unique limitations of spaceflight require careful consideration and integration of leading technology to advance our knowledge of this extraterrestrial syndrome. We describe the current neuro-ophthalmic imaging modalities and hypotheses that have improved our current understanding of SANS, discuss newer developments in SANS imaging (including noninvasive near-infrared spectroscopy) and summarize emerging research in the development of an aspirational future head-mounted virtual reality display with multimodal visual assessment technology for the detection of neuro-ocular findings in SANS.
