J Med Case Rep 2019 Feb 6;13(1):31. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospital of Tübingen, Elfriede-Aulhorn-Str. 7, 72076, Tübingen, Germany.

Background: We report the first histopathologically proven occurrence of a retrocorneal membrane after Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty.

Case Presentation: A white Caucasian 76-year-old woman received penetrating keratoplasty on her right eye 2 years after Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty surgery with combined cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation for Fuchs' endothelial corneal dystrophy due to an allograft rejection with ensuing graft failure. Her preoperative vision was counting fingers (20/2000) caused by immunological debris, corneal edema, and secondary membrane formation. Read More

Ex-PRESS mini-shunt implanted in a pregnant patient with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome.

Eur J Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 8:1120672118820508. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Ophthalmology Department, Tajo Hospital, Aranjuez, Spain.

Introduction:: The failure rate of both filtration surgery and of aqueous shunt implantation is higher for iridocorneal endothelial syndrome than in other scenarios, due to the continuous proliferation of abnormal endothelial cells over the trabecular meshwork and the filtration area and also due to the more pronounced cicatrizing response shown by these young patients. We present the first case ever described in the literature of a pregnant patient with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome and uncontrolled ocular hypertension who was implanted an Ex-PRESS mini-shunt.

Clinical Case:: A 35-year-old female presented with diminution of vision in the left eye for 2 months. Read More

Beijing Tongren eye center, Beijing keynote laboratory of ophthalmology and visual science, Beijing Tongren hospital affiliated to capital medical university, 100730 Beijing, China. Electronic address:

The aim of this study was to compare the safety and efficacy between the prechopping method using a Reverse Chopper (iHPC) and the routine stop-and-chop (RSC) method in phacoemulsification of cataracts with grade IV hard nuclei (HNC (≥IV)). A total of 32 patients (32 eyes) scheduled for Phaco combined with intraocular lens (Phaco-IOL) for HNC (≥IV) from March 2015 to January 2016 were enrolled and randomly divided into two groups (the iHPC group, n=16 and the RSC group, n=16) so as to compare the effective intraoperative Phaco time, corneal edema 1-3 days after surgery, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), and rate of loss of corneal endothelial cells (CECs) 1 month after surgery. The effective intraoperative Phaco time in the iHPC group was shorter (42. Read More
