Vancomycin ocular delivery systems based on glycerol monooleate reversed hexagonal and reversed cubic liquid crystalline phases.

Eur J Pharm Biopharm 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

University of Graz, Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Department of Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmacy, NAWI Graz, Universitätsplatz 1, 8010 Graz, Austria. Electronic address:

Lyotropic bulk reversed hexagonal and reversed cubic liquid crystalline phases (hexagonal and cubic phases) composed of glycerol monooleate (GM) were used to design the vancomycin hydrochloridés (VHCl) delivery systems aiming to maintain VHCĺs therapeutic concentration during 24 h in the eye, locally (as an insert) and/or intravitreally (as a bulk phase injection). Bulk VHCĺs hexagonal and cubic phases were successfully prepared by melted homogenization and solvent evaporation method, and then an insert was prepared.

Utility of Ophthalmologic Screening for Patients With Candida Bloodstream Infections: A Systematic Review.

JAMA Ophthalmol 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee.

Importance: The Infectious Diseases Society of America recommends ophthalmologic examinations for everyone with positive Candida blood culture results (candidemia) to screen for endophthalmitis, a practice that remains controversial because of multiple concerns for its limited usefulness and potential for harm.

Objective: To determine guideline efficacy by reconciling discrepancies in the incidence of endophthalmitis and evaluating outcomes of studies assessing ophthalmologic screening for candidemia.

Evidence Review: PubMed literature searches, including the search terms candidemia, fungemia, chorioretinitis, and endophthalmitis, identified longitudinal studies prior to 2018 of patients who underwent ophthalmologic evaluations in the setting of positive fungal blood culture results regardless of symptoms or clinical status.

[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.

Injectable Schiff base polysaccharide hydrogels for intraocular drug loading and release.

J Biomed Mater Res A 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Material Science and Engineering College, Qingdao University, Qingdao, Shandong, 266071, People's Republic of China.

A novel voriconazole (VCZ)-loaded injectable hydrogel was in situ synthetized via a Schiff base reaction between polyaldehyde dextran (PAD) and carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCTS) for intraocular drug loading and release. Water-insoluble VCZ, which is an effective agent in clinic treating fungal endophthalmitis, was loaded through the inclusion into the β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) cavity based on host-guest interaction on the linear poly β-CD chain, which was in situ twined in the cross-linked hydrogel structure. The gelation time, degradation, and drug release process were investigated by studying three kinds of hydrogels with different volume ratio of PAD to CMCTS resolving in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution (3:7, 6:7, 9:7), respectively.

Sustained release of levofloxacin from thermosensitive chitosan-based hydrogel for the treatment of postoperative endophthalmitis.

J Biomed Mater Res B Appl Biomater 2019 Mar 21. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

National Yang-Ming University School of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan.

In the field of ophthalmology, postoperative endophthalmitis (POE) is a serious surgical complication, which may lead to poor visual outcome even after the infection has been controlled. In the study, we develop a sustained drug releasing system loaded with levofloxacin which is expected to be effective against common pathogens responsible for POE for at least 7 days after single application at the end of surgery. The results of study showed that the sol-gel transition temperature of the levofloxacin-loaded chitosan-gelatin-based solution was ~34°C. Read More

Simple Technique for Transscleral Fixation of a Foldable Posterior Chamber Intraocular Lens Using a Single Suture.

J Invest Surg 2019 Mar 19:1-7. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

a Department of Opthalmic Center, the 474th Hospital of Chinese PLA , XinJiang , China.

Objective: To explore the simplified technique for transscleral fixation of a foldable posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOLs) in patients with aphakia or inadequate posterior capsule support.

Methods: A review was conducted of 18 eyes of eighteen patients with the absence of-or inadequate-capsule support, after the simplified technique of using a foldable posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOLs) with stable four-point transscleral fixation, as performed by a skilled surgeon. This technique uses only a single suture and a knot to fix a PC IOL firmly without creating a scleral flap. Read More

Small gauge vitrectomy: operative techniques.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2019 May;30(3):159-164

Illinois Retina Associates, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL USA.

Purpose Of Review: This article reviews operative techniques and risks associated with microincision vitrectomy surgery.

Recent Findings: All three microincision vitrectomy surgery platforms (23, 25, and 27 gauge) are associated with both advantages and disadvantages, combined with similarly low rates of hypotony, endophthalmitis, corneal astigmatism, and postoperative inflammation.

Summary: Hybrid-gauge vitrectomy, utilizing larger gauge MIVS cannulas, preserves surgeon access to benefits of both larger and smaller gauge MIVS platforms without compromising safety, efficacy, or efficiency. Read More

Cyclodestructive procedures for refractory glaucoma.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 03 10;3:CD012223. Epub 2019 Mar 10.

Stein Eye Institute, UCLA, 100 Stein Plaza, Los Angeles, California, USA, 90095.

Background: Cyclodestructive procedures are often used in patients with refractory glaucoma who have failed to achieve lower intraocular pressure (IOP) from filtration procedures and maximal medical therapy. Destruction of the ciliary body helps to lower IOP by reducing aqueous humor formation. Of the many types of cyclodestructive procedures, laser cyclophotocoagulation (CPC) has become the most common surgical method for reducing aqueous inflow. Read More
