[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.

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

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

Volga District Medical Centre, Federal Medical and Biological Agency, 2 Nizhnevolgskaya Naberegnaya, Nizhny Novgorod, Russian Federation, 603001.

Intracameral injection of cefuroxime during phacoemulsification is considered effective in preventing endophthalmitis. Its widespread usage has led to the accumulation of data on local and systemic adverse reactions. The analysis of complications of cataract surgery with cefuroxime injections described in literature has allowed identifying a few different clusters of toxic and allergic reactions to intracameral cefuroxime for the first time.

Infectious postoperative endophthalmitis after cataract surgery performed over 7 years. The role of azithromycin versus ciprofloxacin eye drops.

Rev Esp Quimioter 2018 12 31;31(6):15-21. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Santiago Grau Department of Pharmacy, Hospital del Mar, Parc de Salut Mar, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.

Objective: Although topical antibiotics have been used as antimicrobial prophylaxis after ocular surgery, recent studies have determined that intracameral cefuroxime at the end of surgery significantly reduce the risk to suffer an infection and suggest that the use of topical antibiotics in the prophylaxis of infectious postoperative endophthalmitis (IPOE) is controversial. Moreover, there is no evidence to confirm the higher effectiveness of topical ciprofloxacin, considered the standard of care, or topical azithromycin in preventing IPOE of cataract surgeries.

Methods: IPOE topical prophylaxis was performed with two different strategies: with azithromycin from January 1st, 2010 to December 31st, 2014 (group I) and with ciprofloxacin from January 1st, 2015 to January 31st, 2017 (group II). Read More

Intracameral antibiotics for prophylaxis of postoperative endophthalmitis in Australia: a review.

Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2018 Oct 21. Epub 2018 Oct 21.

Department of Ophthalmology, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Nedlands, Western Australia, Australia.

Postoperative endophthalmitis is a severe complication which may result in loss of vision. Intracameral antibiotics have been shown to reduce the risk of this complication and are extensively used worldwide, with vancomycin, cefuroxime and moxifloxacin most commonly used. Choices in Australia are currently limited to vancomycin and cefazolin, since cefuroxime and moxifloxacin are not available. Read More

Repair of primary RRD - comparing pars plana vitrectomy procedure with combined phacovitrectomy with standard foldable intraocular lens implantation.

Clin Ophthalmol 2018 15;12:1449-1457. Epub 2018 Aug 15.

Department of Public Health, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

Background: Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) combined with phacoemulsification and primary intraocular lens implantation can be performed for the repair of primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD; PHACOVIT group). The safety and efficacy of this combined ophthalmic procedure on RRD surgery outcomes remain unclear compared with more conventional PPV technique alone (VITRET group). We explored the need for reoperation after primary surgical procedure in these two groups. Read More
