[Complications in sutured scleral fixation of artificial lens implantation].

Ophthalmologe 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsmedizin Göttingen, Göttingen, Deutschland.

Background: Sutured scleral fixation of an artificial posterior chamber lens is a frequently used method for the treatment of eyes with poor or absent capsular support; however, the complication profile is often considered unfavorable.

Objective: To analyze the postoperative complication profile.

Methods: In this monocentric and retrospective analysis of a consecutive case series of patients with standardized sutured scleral fixation of a posterior chamber lens between 2007 and 2017, the documented complications were categorized as a permanent threat to visual acuity, such as endophthalmitis, choroidal hemorrhage, retinal detachment and clinically relevant but without a permanent threat to visual acuity, such as hemorrhage and hypotension.

Ophthalmologe 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Medizinische Fakultät, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Freiburg, Deutschland.

Purpose: Landolt rings are commonly used for the measurement of visual acuity, especially for legal purposes. For multiple reasons, in clinical practice these optotypes are not in use and not practical. Therefore, the difference between visual acuity tested with Landolt rings as opposed to numbers was evaluated. Read More

[Work in progress: adaptation of electronic medical records to the requirements of a university eye clinic : Individual extensions of the software "FIDUS" at the Department of Ophthalmology of the Saarland University Medical Center UKS].

Ophthalmologe 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsklinikum des Saarlandes UKS, Kirrberger Str. 100, Gebäude 22, 66421, Homburg/Saar, Deutschland.

Background: The implementation of electronic medical records (EMR) in the Department of Ophthalmology at the Saarland University Medical Center (UKS) in January 2016 was a timely response to growing documentation requirements and rapidly increasing electronic diagnostic data. The software system was primarily developed for private practices and cannot therefore meet the different requirements of various clinics out of the box. The purpose of this study was to identify features of the EMR beyond purely paper replacement that can assist in the clinical workflow and whether these features can be implemented in a running system.

M M Nentwich

Ophthalmologe 2019 Apr;116(4):391-404

Augenklinik, Julius-Maximilians Universität Würzburg, Josef-Schneider-Str. 11, 97080, Würzburg, Deutschland.

Amblyopia is a visual deficit that occurs during childhood and results in an abnormal development of the normal cortical visual pathway. It is defined as the reduction of best corrected visual acuity of one or rarely both eyes, which is not explained by structural abnormalities of the eye alone. During the sensitive period amblyopia is completely or partially reversible. Read More

The incidence of myopia is increasing worldwide. The associated increase in secondary and vision-threatening eye diseases will pose major challenges to patients, ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians and healthcare systems. Since myopia begins in childhood and adolescence, progression can only be influenced in this phase of life. Read More

Ophthalmologe 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Augenklinik, Universitäts-Klinikum Tübingen, Elfriede-Aulhorn-Str. 7, 72076, Tübingen, Deutschland.

The motto of the German Ophthalmolological Society (DOG) Congress 2019 "Ophthalmology: our medical discipline with a future" raises the question of what "ophthalmological future" should really be, what are its driving forces and what are the foundations of its design. The design of the future, usually equated with "progress", naturally always takes place out of the present, which itself is a product of the past. History, like time and evolution, is always a continuum. Read More

Approximately 500,000 blind and 1 million visually impaired persons live in Germany, which lacks a national blind registry. Therefore data from social welfare agencies and population-based studies are used to estimate prevalence and incidence. Main causes for severe visual impairment and blindness are age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic eye diseases. Read More

Mannheimer Institut für Public Health, Sozial- und Präventivmedizin, Medizinische Fakultät Mannheim, Universität Heidelberg, Ludolf-Krehl-Str. 7-11, 68167, Mannheim, Deutschland.

Objective: This study aimed at collecting representative national data on the use of sunglasses on sunny summer days during leisure time or work as well as identifying population and professional groups with a pronounced lack of preventive measures to avoid sun-induced eye damage.

Material And Methods: Within the representative National Cancer Aid Monitoring, data on the use of sunglasses during leisure time was assessed among 3000 individuals aged 14-45 years in 2015, as well as on the use during outdoor work among 485 workers aged 14-45 years in 2016. Associations between the use of sunglasses and sociodemographic characteristics were assessed with the χ-test. Read More

Ophthalmologe 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Augenklinik, Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), Martinistr. 52, 20251, Hamburg, Deutschland.

According to the literature there are a large number of potential systemic contraindications for corneal refractive surgery. In cases with relative contraindications, surgery should be performed only after weighing up the individual risks and under controlled disease conditions; however, the "evidence" for many of these contraindications is based only on case reports or series, expert opinions or known complications in non-laser-assisted eye surgery. Randomized clinical trials are therefore required. Read More

Ophthalmologe 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsmedizin Göttingen, Robert-Koch-Str. 40, 37075, Göttingen, Deutschland.

The Kahook Dual Blade (New World Medical, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, USA) is a novel goniotomy instrument for opening Schlemm's canal. Performing the procedure is comparable to the Trabectome (Neomedix, Tustin, CA, USA) under gonioscopic control with the major difference that the trabeculectomy is created by a dual blade instead of electroablation. The currently available clinical data are limited to a small number of retrospective studies with ≤1 year of follow-up. Read More

[Bilateral multifocal pigment epithelial detachments associated with inhaled corticosteroids].

Ophthalmologe 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Universitäts-Augenklinik Bonn, Ernst-Abbe-Str. 2, 53127, Bonn, Deutschland.

A 37-year-old male patient presented with metamorphopsia and unilateral visual impairment with the presence of hundreds of bilateral avascular retinal pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs). The patient suffered from allergic bronchial asthma which was treated with inhaled corticosteroids. Cessation of corticosteroid treatment resulted in flattening of larger PEDs and subsequent transition to atrophic areas over time while smaller PEDs persisted and spread peripherally over an observation period of 14½ years.

[New molecular pathological strategies for malignant iris tumors].

Ophthalmologe 2019 Apr;116(4):324-331

Zentrum für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsklinikum zu Köln, Köln, Deutschland.

Background: Molecular pathological research offers new chances for the diagnostic and therapeutic management of malignant iris tumors. Besides immunohistological and polymerase chain reaction analyses further techniques, such as multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification, microsatellite analyses and next-generation sequencing are able to detect various mutations in the tumor genome.

Objective: An up to date review of new molecular pathological strategies for malignant iris tumors was carried out. Read More
