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.

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.

Visual performance of the intraindividual implantation of a trifocal intraocular lens in the bag and a +4.0 D bifocal intraocular lens in the sulcus with optic capture created by femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery.

Int Med Case Rep J 2018 2;11:251-257. Epub 2018 Oct 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, Yokohama City University School of Medicine, Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan,

At present, only one design is available for trifocal intraocular lens (IOL); unfortunately, this particular design is not suitable for implantation in the sulcus with optic capture when posterior capsule rupture (PCR) occurs. Although three-piece bifocal IOLs can be implanted in the sulcus, this form of IOL can be vulnerable to tilt and decentration, thus causing aberration and photopic phenomena, such as halos and glares. However, visual axis centered optic capture using femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is able to manage such complex operations. Read More

Transblepharo-Preseptal Modified Orbitozygomatic Approach for the Treatment of Ruptured Proximal Anterior Circulation Aneurysms.

World Neurosurg 2018 Oct 2;118:e335-e345. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

Neurorestoration Center, Department of Neurological Surgery, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Minimally invasive skull base approaches, including the cosmetically optimal transblepharo-preseptal modified orbitozygomatic (TBMOZ) technique, have been described to treat proximal anterior circulation aneurysms. The use of minimally invasive techniques for previously ruptured aneurysms is rare because of perceived technical challenges in controlling intraoperative ruptures. Herein, we determine the utility of the minimally invasive TBMOZ approach for the treatment of ruptured proximal anterior circulation aneurysms. Read More
