A new association: acute macular neuroretinopathy in acute optic neuritis.

Acta Ophthalmol 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Clinical Research Department, Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild, Paris, France.

Background: Acute optic neuritis (AON) is a common optic nerve disease leading to retrograde degeneration of optic nerve axons, reflected by thinning of the inner retinal layers on optical coherence tomography. On the contrary, acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN) type 2 is a rare outer retinal disorder that leads to thinning of the outer nuclear layers and is diagnosed by multimodal imaging. The aim of this study was to report a new association between these two diseases. Read More

Suprachoroidally injected pharmacological agents for the treatment of chorio-retinal diseases: a targeted approach.

Acta Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Retina Consultants of Houston, Houston, Texas, USA.

Delivery of pharmaceuticals to the posterior segment presents challenges that arise from the anatomy and clearance pharmacokinetics of the eye. Systemic and several local administration options [topical, periocular, intravitreal (IVT) and subretinal] are in clinical use, each with a unique benefit to risk profile shaped by factors including the administered agent, frequency of dosing, achievable pharmaceutical concentrations within posterior segment structures versus elsewhere in the eye or the body, invasiveness of the procedure and the inherent challenges with some administration methods. The use of the suprachoroidal space (SCS), which is the region between the sclera and the choroid, is being explored as a potential approach to target pharmacotherapies to the posterior segment via a minimally invasive injection procedure.

Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) as a new method of detecting copper deposits forming the Kayser-Fleischer ring in patients with Wilson disease.

Acta Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

SPKSO Ophthalmic University Hospital, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.

Purpose: Kayser-Fleischer ring pathognomonic for Wilson disease (WD) is formed of corneal copper deposits present predominantly within the anterior chamber angle at the Schwalbe's line. The slit-lamp assessment commonly used as a standard of care cannot detect them early enough, as the angle view is obscured by the corneal limbus. The aim of the research was to evaluate the anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT), as objective diagnostic assessment of copper deposits forming KF ring in patients with WD.

Preoperative anti-inflammatory treatment of diabetic patients does not improve recovery from cataract surgery when postoperatively treated with a combination of prednisolone acetate and nepafenac.

Acta Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 8. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Helsinki Retina Research Group, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

Purpose: To examine preoperative anti-inflammatory treatment on recovery from cataract surgery in eyes of diabetic patients.

Methods: A Prospective randomized clinical trial. One hundred and three eyes of 103 patients with diabetes undergoing routine cataract surgery were randomized (1:1) not to receive any preoperative anti-inflammatory medication or to receive preoperative topical anti-inflammatory medication with a combination of prednisolone acetate (10 mg/ml) and nepafenac (1 mg/ml).

Unilateral pigmentary retinopathy: a retrospective case series.

Acta Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 31. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.

Purpose: To review the clinical characteristics and address the aetiology in a group of patients presenting with unilateral retinal pigmentary changes, best described as unilateral pigmentary retinopathy (UPR).

Methods: The cohort of 42 patients was identified retrospectively from the Moorfields Eye Hospital electrophysiology database. All had undergone full-field [electroretinography (ERG)] and pattern electroretinography (PERG), with 13 additionally having multifocal ERG (mfERG). Read More

Photoactivated chromophore corneal cross-linking (PACK-CXL) for treatment of severe keratitis.

Acta Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 28. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Ophthalmology, Helsinki University Hospital and University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

Purpose: To report our experience with photoactivated chromophore corneal cross-linking (PACK-CXL) for treating keratitis patients.

Methods: This retrospective study consists of 27 eyes of 26 patients with infectious keratitis treated with PACK-CXL at the Helsinki University Hospital between 2009 and 2017. Patients were treated with antibiotics/antifungal medications and underwent PACK-CXL procedure due to lack of clinical response or severe corneal melts. Read More

Survival and functionality of xeno-free human embryonic stem cell-derived retinal pigment epithelial cells on polyester substrate after transplantation in rabbits.

Acta Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 28. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

Purpose: To study immunogenic properties of human embryonic stem cell-derived retinal pigment epithelium (hESC-RPE) and to evaluate subretinal xenotransplantation of hESC-RPE on porous polyethylene terephthalate (PET) in rabbits.

Methods: Human ESC-RPE cells were characterized by morphology, transepithelial electrical resistance (TER), protein expression and photoreceptor outer segment phagocytosis in vitro. Expression of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) proteins was assessed in conventionally or xeno-free produced hESC-RPE ± interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) stimulation (n = 1). Read More

Dry eye syndrome in thyroid eye disease patients: The role of increased incomplete blinking and Meibomian gland loss.

Acta Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 28. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Department of Ophthalmology, Korea University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: To compare the structure and function of the Meibomian gland and eyelid blinking patterns between thyroid eye disease (TED) patients with dry eye and nonthyroidal dry eye (DE) patients.

Methods: This was a prospective, cross-sectional and observational study. Clinical measurements were performed as follows: (1) external examination, (2) Lipiview Interferometer (lipid layer thickness, incomplete blinking rate and meibography) and (3) slit-lamp biomicroscopy (corneal staining, tear break-up time (TBUT), meibum expression).
