Global prevalence of asteroid hyalosis and projection of its future burden: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 May 15. Epub 2020 May 15.

Department of Ophthalmology, Rigshospitalet, Glostrup, Denmark.

Asteroid hyalosis is defined by the presence of white, snowball-like non-crystalline vitreous opacities that move with the vitreous and appear to be anchored to its matrix. Asteroid hyalosis commonly occurs in the absence of other identifiable ocular abnormalities and is usually an incidental finding. The vitreous opacities are usually invisible to the patient and asymptomatic, but asteroid hyalosis can be a significant obstacle to the examination of the fundus. Read More

Needling after trabeculectomy - does augmentation by anti-metabolites provide better outcomes and is Mitomycin C better than 5-Fluoruracil? A systematic review with network meta-analyses.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 30. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Department of Ophthalmology, Rigshospitalet-Glostrup, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Increased choroidal thickness: a new indicator for monitoring diabetic macular oedema recurrence.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 17. Epub 2020 Apr 17.

Service d'ophtalmologie, Hôpital de la Croix Rousse, Lyon, France.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine whether choroidal thickness (CT) increases at the time of exudative recurrence in diabetic patients with unilateral diabetic macular oedema (DME) treated with intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF or dexamethasone.

Methods: A real-life, prospective, two-centre study was conducted over a 9-month period investigating diabetic patients presenting with unilateral DME treated with anti-VEGF or dexamethasone intravitreal injections, and CT was measured manually, using the enhanced depth imaging module of the spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Choroidal thickness (CT) was measured in the morning, in both the affected and healthy eye of each patient at two timepoints: when the macula was 'dry' (T0) and at the time of exudative recurrence (T1).

Coronary artery bypass surgery independently associates with retinal vascular oxygen saturation.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 17. Epub 2020 Apr 17.

Department of Ophthalmology, Odense University Hospital, Odense, Denmark.

Purpose: The retinal vasculature is the only part of the microcirculation that can be directly studied by non-invasive imaging. Based on the hypothesis that the systemic circulation is reflected in retinal vessels, we investigated if coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is related to changes in retinal vascular oxygen saturation (rSatO ).

Methods: Retinal metabolism was evaluated by Oxymap T1, which simultaneously captures two retinal images at different wavelengths measuring the retinal arteriolar (raSatO ) and venular (rvSatO ) oxygen saturation. Read More

Purpose: To compare the risk of haemorrhagic complications in elective macular surgery between patients with no antithrombotic (AT) treatment (defined as patients with no history of AT therapy or who discontinued AT therapy) and patients who continued AT treatment during the surgery.

Methods: E-case report forms were prospectively recorded in a database before vitreoretinal surgery and 1 month after. Data on patient characteristics, surgical techniques, haemorrhagic complications and antithrombotic status were collected. Read More

Full-field Electroretinography in Age-related Macular Degeneration: can retinal electrophysiology predict the subjective visual outcome of cataract surgery?

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 10. Epub 2020 Apr 10.

Department of Ophthalmology, Zealand University Hospital, Roskilde, Denmark.

Purpose: Predicting the visual gain from cataract surgery when the main cause of vision loss is age-related macular degeneration may be difficult and warrants the need for an objective predictor of subjective outcome. Full-field electroretinography is an objective measure of overall retinal function. We therefore wanted to study if full-field electroretinography can predict subjective visual outcome using visual function questionnaire. Read More

Structural changes in the corneal subbasal nerve plexus in keratoconus.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 10. Epub 2020 Apr 10.

Department of Ophthalmology, Saarland University Medical Center, Homburg, Germany.

Background: Corneal confocal microscopy (CCM) allows visualizing slightest alterations within the corneal subbasal nerve plexus (SNP). Recent CCM studies based on the analysis of three-five CCM images per eye assumed a reduced corneal nerve fibre length (CNFL) in keratoconus (KC).

Methods: The SNP of KC patients (n = 23, 13 contact lens wearing, 10 noncontact lens wearing) and patients without KC (n = 16) was examined by 10 CCM images of one eye per patient. Read More

Oral consumption of Garcinia kola (Bitter kola) lowers intraocular pressure.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 10. Epub 2020 Apr 10.

Department of Optometry, Madonna University, Okija, Nigeria.

Purpose: Garcinia kola (bitter kola) is locally ingested across the West African subregion. It has ocular hypotensive effects similar to some commonly used glaucoma medications when administered topically. The study assessed the effect of oral ingestion of G. Read More

The Swedish National Pediatric Cataract Register (PECARE): incidence and onset of postoperative glaucoma.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 9. Epub 2020 Apr 9.

Department of Ophthalmology, Region Västra Götaland, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Mölndal, Sweden.

Purpose: The aim was to report cumulative incidence and time of onset of postoperative glaucoma in a paediatric early cataract surgery cohort.

Methods: Data were retrieved from the Pediatric Cataract Register (PECARE), a prospective register of Swedish cataract operations before 8 years of age. All eyes with surgery between January 2007 and December 2014 and a registered follow-up were included. Read More

Development of a 1-year risk-prediction nomogram for good functional response with anti-VEGF agents in naive diabetic macular oedema.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 8. Epub 2020 Apr 8.

Ophthalmology Department, University Hospital, Dijon, France.

Purpose: To develop a risk-prediction nomogram based on baseline variables for good functional response during the 1st year of treatment with anti-VEGF agents in naive diabetic macular oedema (DME).

Methods: This retrospective study included patients presenting naive-DME treated with anti-VEGF therapy at Dijon University Hospital (France) between 1 February 2012 and 31 March 2015 (derivation cohort). We studied baseline variables that had significant associations with a good functional response to anti-VEGF agents during the 1st year of treatment. Read More

Inadequate laser coagulation is an important cause of treatment failure in Type 1 retinopathy of prematurity.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 Apr 6. Epub 2020 Apr 6.

Department of Neuroscience/Ophthalmology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden.

Purpose Of The Study: To examine the cause of treatment failures in Type 1 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).

Patients And Methods: The medical charts of all infants with disease persistence after laser treatment at Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden, during a 10-year period (2009-2019) were reviewed. RetCam photography and angiography were used to document the retinal appearance before and after retreatment. Read More
