A novel minimal fluid technique for effective and safe lens hydrodissection during cataract surgery.

Taiwan J Ophthalmol 2019 Jan-Mar;9(1):43-45

Universal Eye Center, Taipei, Taiwan.

Traditional hydrodissection may cause posterior capsule rupture (PCR) if excessive fluid accumulates. In this study, we describe the successful application of a novel minimal fluid hydrodissection technique in 100 consecutive cataract surgery cases. This technique separates the nucleus from the capsule utilizing low hydrostatic pressure and precise kinetic movement of a small volume (around 0. Read More

Point-of-Care Ultrasonography in the Diagnosis of Retinal Detachment, Vitreous Hemorrhage, and Vitreous Detachment in the Emergency Department.

JAMA Netw Open 2019 Apr 5;2(4):e192162. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of California, Irvine.

Importance: Ocular symptoms represent approximately 2% to 3% of all emergency department (ED) visits. These disease processes may progress to permanent vision loss if not diagnosed and treated quickly. Use of ocular point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) may be effective for early and accurate detection of ocular disease. Read More

Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Ophthalmology, New Zealand National Eye Centre, Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.

Pseudophakic cystoid macular oedema (PCMO) remains a significant cause of compromised post-operative vision in contemporary cataract surgery. Well-established risk factors include intraoperative complications such as posterior capsule rupture and pre-operative factors including: diabetes mellitus, uveitis, retinal vein occlusion, epiretinal membrane. The role of topical glaucoma medications in PCMO continues to be debated. Read More

Intralenticular Cilia Following Penetrating Ocular Trauma: A Case Report.

Iran J Med Sci 2019 Mar;44(2):176-179

Poostchi Ophthalmology Research Center, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

Atypical manifestation of a direct low flow carotid-cavernous fistula: case report and review of the literature.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 25. Epub 2019 Feb 25.

Department of Neurology and Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, 'Sapienza' University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Pathomechanism of traumatic indirect choroidal rupture.

Med Hypotheses 2019 Mar 2;124:64-66. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi 110029, India.

The probable chain of events responsible for choroidal rupture is as follows. During high-speed orbital injuries, the protective ocular reflexes position the eye in an elevated, and abducted position. At this point in time, the anteroposterior compressive forces on to the globe create an eccentrically positioned circle of damaging currents along the posterior ocular coats against a relatively static optic nerve.

What decides the nature of extraocular muscle injury? The probable mechanism of flap tear and rupture.

Med Hypotheses 2019 Feb 16;123:115-117. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, India.

The assessment of nature and the extent of extraocular muscle injuries during initial visit in ocular emergencies is of paramount importance to avoid/minimize the subsequent need for strabismus surgery. Based on our experience in managing acute globe and orbital injuries and cases of strabismus, we propose the probable mechanism involved in the occurrence of extraocular muscle flap tear and a complete rupture of the muscle. During high-velocity injuries when the forces are equally transmitted along the orbital bony framework and the globe, then due to differential shearing forces created between the global and the orbital fibres leads to a flap tear.

Ophthalmology 2019 Apr 14;126(4):490-496. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada; Department of Ophthalmology, Kingston Health Sciences Centre, Hotel Dieu Hospital Site, Kingston, Canada.

Purpose: Tamsulosin is associated with intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS), an important risk factor for complications during cataract surgery. Significant efforts have been made to increase awareness of the risks associated with tamsulosin, and educational initiatives have fostered the uptake of technical adjustments to decrease adverse event rates among tamsulosin-exposed patients. However, the effectiveness of these efforts at the population level has not been studied. Read More

The microRNAs Regulating Vascular Smooth Muscle Cell Proliferation: A Minireview.

Int J Mol Sci 2019 Jan 14;20(2). Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Molecular Biology, Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding of the Polish Academy of Sciences, 05-552 Jastrzębiec, Poland.

Vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation plays a critical role in atherosclerosis. At the beginning of the pathologic process of atherosclerosis, irregular VSMC proliferation promotes plaque formation, but in advanced plaques VSMCs are beneficial, promoting the stability and preventing rupture of the fibrous cap. Recent studies have demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) expressed in the vascular system are involved in the control of VSMC proliferation. Read More

Pathomechanism of iris sphincter tear.

Med Hypotheses 2019 Jan 22;122:147-149. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Dr Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Room No 212, Second Floor, RPC-1 Hostel, AIIMS, New Delhi 110029, India.

Traumatic iris sphincter tear has been thought to occur secondary to anteroposterior compression of the globe with defined forces lead to equatorial expansion and active pull along the corneoscleral junction and sphincter tear. However, here in this report, we elaborate the additional forces involved in the traumatic rupture of the sphincter pupillae muscle. During the anteroposterior compressive forces along the globe, the corneal deformation beyond certain limits leads to the development of sudden displacement forces within the anterior chamber.

Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medical Sciences, University of Benin, Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria.

This paper aims to report cases of spontaneous globe rupture in the blind eyes of three elderly patients with end-stage glaucoma some of which were possibly structurally compromised with topical traditional eye medications and steroids. These patients presented to the ophthalmology department of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital with a history of bleeding from one of their eyes and no antecedent history of trauma. They were known glaucoma patients who were blind with previously recorded high intraocular pressures. Read More

[The role of anti-VEGF therapy in geographic atrophy progression].

Vestn Oftalmol 2018;134(5. Vyp. 2):289-293

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

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a retinal disease associated with older age; it affects macula and leads to deterioration of central vision. Geographic atrophy (GA) is described as advanced stage AMD. Essentially, GA is the loss of some areas of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), which is necessary for normal functioning of the retina as it transports nutrients and ions, helps with production of growth factors and protects from photo-oxidation.
