Evolution of thyroid eye disease decompression-dysthyroid optic neuropathy.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, Columbia University, New York, New York, USA.

Orbital decompression surgery and medical therapy for thyroid eye disease (TED) have evolved over the past 150 years and afforded the opportunity to restore pre-disease appearance and visual function. This manuscript explores the past 150 years of surgical innovation for the treatment of TED. The "Age of Surgical Heroism" spans the time from 1888 to 1979 during which the pioneers of orbital decompression developed lateral orbitotomy, transcranial decompression, paranasal sinus decompression, and transantral decompression despite an incomplete understanding of the pathophysiology of both TED and a limited ability to non-invasively assess their patients.

Masquerades less known: Case report of benign hair follicle tumors.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2018 Oct;66(10):1506-1508

Department of Orbit and Oculoplasty, Aravind Eye Hospital and Post-graduate Institute of Ophthalmology, Pondicherry, India.

Benign eyelid tumors derived from hair follicles are rare and frequently misdiagnosed as basal-cell carcinoma when evaluation is based on clinical evidence alone. The discrepancy between the clinical aspect and the histological diagnosis can be as high as 30-40%, even for experienced clinicians. Unfortunately, this masquerade is not only clinical but also histological. Read More

Ocular Surface Reconstruction with the Autologous Conjunctival Epithelium and Establishment of a Feeder-Free and Serum-Free Culture System.

Cornea 2018 Nov;37 Suppl 1:S39-S41

Department of Ophthalmology, Nihon University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Transplantation of the autologous cultured corneal limbal epithelium and oral mucosal epithelium is a standard technique for ocular surface reconstruction under corneal limbal stem cell deficiency. As an option for bilateral cases, we recommend utilization of autologous conjunctivae for ocular surface reconstruction. Autologous conjunctival epithelium sheet transplantation was effective for bilateral corneal limbal stem cell deficiency without symblepharon or severe keratinization. Read More
