Panophthalmitis and Visual Loss as a Complication of Acute Dacryocystitis.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 Apr 23. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Govindram Seksaria Institute of Dacryology, L.V. Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

Acute dacryocystitis causing visual loss due to development of orbital complications like central retinal artery or ophthalmic artery occlusion, retinal vein occlusions, and optic neuritis is rare but a known entity. However, development of scleral abscess and panophthalmitis as a complication of acute dacryocystitis, leading to loss of vision, has not been described earlier. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report describing this mode of visual loss in acute dacryocystitis. Read More

Modified Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy Using the Middle Uncinate Process Approach.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Apr 16. Epub 2020 Apr 16.

Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang City, China.

Purpose: Endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (EDCR) is advantageous in that it avoids facial scar formation, does not damage the medial canthus ligament, and recovers quickly. The main purpose of EDCR is to establish a fistula large enough to completely expose the lacrimal sac and avoid complications. Accurate location of lacrimal sac and complete opening of lacrimal sac are the keys to successful operation. Read More

Antimetabolites as an adjunct to dacryocystorhinostomy for nasolacrimal duct obstruction.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2020 04 7;4:CD012309. Epub 2020 Apr 7.

University of Hong Kong, Department of Ophthalmology, Rm 301, Blk B, Cyberport 4, 100 Cyberport Road, Cyberport, Hong Kong, 00000.

Background: Nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) is a condition that results in the overflow of tears (epiphora) or infection of the nasolacrimal sac (dacryocystitis). The etiology of acquired NLDO is multifactorial and is not fully understood. Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is the surgical correction of NLDO, which aims to establish a new drainage pathway between the lacrimal sac and the nose. Read More

Toward a chimeric vaccine against multiple isolates of Mycobacteroides - An integrative approach.

Life Sci 2020 Jun 10;250:117541. Epub 2020 Mar 10.

Department of Biotechnology, School of Engineering & Technology (SET), Sharda University, Greater Noida, India.

Aim: Nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infection such as endophthalmitis, dacryocystitis, and canaliculitis are pervasive across the globe and are currently managed by antibiotics. However, the recent cases of Mycobacteroides developing drug resistance reported along with the improper practice of medicine intrigued us to explore its genomic and proteomic canvas at a global scale and develop a chimeric vaccine against Mycobacteroides.

Main Methods: We carried out a vivid genomic study on five recently sequenced strains of Mycobacteroides and explored their Pan-core genome/proteome in three different phases. Read More

Vestn Oftalmol 2019 ;135(6):124-133

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11A Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021.

Numerous clinical observations indicate the importance of the role of 'focal sepsis' in the development and facilitation of inflammation in the anterior eye segment. The article describes possible routes of infection spread from various local foci to the eye. Studying the connection between local infection foci and inflammatory eye diseases will give ophthalmologists more opportunities for effective treatment and prevention of disease recurrences.

Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH), otherwise known as Masson's tumor, is a benign lesion of the skin with no known malignant transformations reported. It is considered a non-neoplastic lesion, as it is reactive to some vascular insult, usually a thrombus in a vein leading to vascular endothelial cell proliferation. Masson's tumor typically presents as a slow-growing, indolent lesion commonly affecting the head, neck and arms with a female predominance. Read More

Loss of Pacer Spikes as electrocardiographic (EKG) Artifact Due to Microdebrider Use During Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 Mar/Apr;36(2):e50-e51

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

As intraoperative use of electronic equipment becomes more common, familiarity with the potential for electrocardiographic artifact generated by these instruments is increasingly important. The authors' patient underwent endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy under general anesthesia for treatment of acute on chronic dacryocystitis secondary to acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction. She had previously had pacemaker placement for treatment of sick sinus syndrome and low ejection fraction heart failure, and use of a microdebrider intraoperatively resulted in loss of pacer spikes and interference signal on electrocardiographic leading to placement of a magnet.

The common ocular manifestations of CHARGE syndrome include colobomatous defects in the eye, strabismus, nystagmus, and micropthalmia. Lacrimal drainage anomalies have been rarely reported and to the best of the authors' knowledge, only 5 such cases have been reported earlier. The present case describes CHARGE syndrome associated with bilateral complex congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction with multiple prior attacks of acute dacryocystitis and left lower punctal agenesis, successfully managed with a right-sided dacryocystorhinostomy and awaiting a left dacryocystorhinostomy.

[Influence of fibrosis mediators on the outcomes of endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy].

Vestn Oftalmol 2019 ;135(4):19-26

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11A Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021.

Introduction: Fibrosis is the most important pathologic condition involved in undesirable outcomes of dacryocystorhinostomy. A number of biochemical factors are currently known to have an effect on wound healing by promoting excessive scarring. Isoforms of transforming growth factor β (TGF-β1) are considered the 'main' pro-fibrotic factor, but wound healing is also affected by other cytokines such as connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), which stimulates fibrosis, and fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2), which acts as antagonist to it.

Department of Radiology, McMaster University, St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by the infiltration of one or more organs with IgG4-positive plasma cells resulting in inflammatory lesions and fibrosis. Although the pancreas is the most commonly affected organ, involvement of extrapancreatic organs is an increasingly recognized manifestation of the disease. Patients may be asymptomatic and serum IgG4 concentrations may be elevated or normal. Read More
