Toric intraocular lens versus limbal relaxing incisions for corneal astigmatism after phacoemulsification.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 12 17;12:CD012801. Epub 2019 Dec 17.

London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Cochrane Eyes and Vision, ICEH, Keppel Street, London, UK, WC1E 7HT.

Background: Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world, and clinically significant astigmatism may affect up to approximately 20% of people undergoing cataract surgery. Pre-existing astigmatism in people undergoing cataract surgery may be treated, among other techniques, by placing corneal incisions near the limbus (limbal relaxing incisions or LRIs) or by toric intraocular lens (IOLs) specially designed to reduce or treat the effect of corneal astigmatism on unaided visual acuity.

Objectives: To assess the effects of toric IOLs compared with LRIs in the management of astigmatism during phacoemulsification cataract surgery. Read More

Sutureless intrascleral fixation using different three-piece posterior chamber intraocular lenses: a literature review of surgical techniques in cases of insufficient capsular support and a retrospective multicentre study.

Acta Ophthalmol 2020 May 1;98(3):224-236. Epub 2019 Dec 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden.

We present a literature review of surgical techniques of intraocular lens placement in eyes with insufficient capsular support, focusing on the most recent publications, together with a retrospective multicentre consecutive case series analysis of 103 eyes undergoing pars plana vitrectomy and sutureless intrascleral (SIS) fixation of a standard three-piece PCIOL. Many different approaches appear in the literature without any specific procedure achieving superior outcomes. Advantages and disadvantages vary between techniques. Read More

A modified intrascleral intraocular lens fixation technique with fewer anterior segment manipulations: 27-gauge needle-guided procedure with built-in 8-0 absorbable sutures.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Nov 21;19(1):234. Epub 2019 Nov 21.

Department of Ophthalmology, Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, No. 639 Zhizaoju Road, Shanghai, 200011, China.

Background: To report a modified surgical technique for intrascleral intraocular lens (IOL) fixation with fewer anterior segment manipulations in eyes lacking sufficient capsular support.

Successful Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty in Proven Herpetic Endothelial Decompensation Requires Intensive Antiviral Therapy.

Cornea 2020 Feb;39(2):196-199

Ospedale Privato "Villa Igea," Department of Ophthalmology, Forlì, Italy.

Purpose: To report the outcomes of Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) with intensive antiviral therapy for corneal edema secondary to herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1)-mediated endotheliitis.

Use of topical bromfenac for treating ocular pain and inflammation beyond cataract surgery: a review of published studies.

Clin Ophthalmol 2019 1;13:1439-1460. Epub 2019 Aug 1.

Cornea and Cataract Service, Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute, Boynton Beach, FL, USA.

Topical ophthalmic nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used to treat postoperative inflammation and pain following cataract surgery and for treatment and prophylaxis of pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (CME). Bromfenac is a brominated NSAID with strong in vitro anti-inflammatory potency. Like other ophthalmic NSAIDs, bromfenac is often used outside of the cataract surgery setting. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Peking Universisty Third Hospital, Beijing 100191, China.

Graft rejection and endothelial cell loss were believed to be the main reasons for graft edema following keratoplasty. With the application of various molecular biological detection methods in ophthalmology, virus infection has emerged and become an important contributing factor for graft failure. This review focused on the etiology, clinical manifestation and diagnosis methods for virus infection following keratoplasty, and discussed possible prevention and treatment. Read More

Combined DSAEK and intraocular lens flipping with retropupillary fixation in a patient with anterior chamber iris-claw intraocular lens and corneal edema.

J Cataract Refract Surg 2019 09;45(9):1346-1348

University Department of Ophthalmology, AHEPA Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece.

An 84-year-old monocular woman was referred to our institution for the management of corneal decompensation in her only eye, the right eye. The patient had secondary implantation of an anterior chamber iris-claw intraocular lens (IOL) for IOL dislocation in the setting of pseudoexfoliation syndrome 2 years before presentation. Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) combined with retropupillary repositioning of the iris-claw IOL using a flipping technique was performed for the treatment of corneal edema.
