A Propensity-Score Matching Comparison between 27-Gauge and 25-Gauge Vitrectomy Systems for the Repair of Primary Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment.

J Ophthalmol 2019 10;2019:3120960. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Medicine-Ophthalmology, University of Udine, Udine, Italy.

Purpose: To compare the anatomical and visual results and complications of 27-gauge versus 25-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy for the management of primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

Methods: A prospective, propensity score-matched 6-month study was performed. All patients underwent either 27-gauge or 25-gauge vitrectomy as the first surgical intervention and were followed up over a 6-month period, in order to evaluate anatomical success, change in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), and intraoperative and postoperative complications including intraocular pressure dysregulation.

Orthostatic blood pressure variability is associated with lower visual contrast sensitivity function: Findings from The Irish Longitudinal Study on Aging.

Exp Gerontol 2019 Jan 22;119:14-24. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Medical Gerontology, School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, Old Stone Building, Trinity Centre for Health Sciences, St James's Hospital, James's Street, Dublin 8, Ireland; The Irish Longitudinal Study on Aging (TILDA), Lincoln Gate, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, College Green, Dublin 2, Ireland. Electronic address:

Background: Hypertension is established to cause vascular end-organ damage. Other forms of dysregulated blood pressure (BP) behaviour, such as orthostatic hypotension have also been associated with cardiovascular (CV) events. The eye is potentially vulnerable to dysregulated systemic BP if ocular circulation autoregulation is impaired. Read More

Relationship between primary open angle glaucoma and blood pressure.

Acta Cardiol 2019 Jan 16:1-5. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

a Cardiology Department , Baskent University Faculty of Medicine , Ankara , Turkey.

Background: Glaucoma is commonly defined as high intra ocular pressure (≥21 mmHg) with optic neuropathy characterised by progressive loss of retinal ganglion cells which is associated with characteristic structural damage to the optic nerve and visual field loss. There are several studies investigating relation between primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and both systemic hypertension and especially night hypotension. Our aim was to compare 24-h ambulatory blood pressure variability of patients with glaucoma followed-up in the eye outpatient clinic with that of patients free of glaucoma. Read More

New developments in tube shunt surgery.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2019 Mar;30(2):125-131

Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, Florida, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This article reviews recent studies related to tube shunt surgery.

Recent Findings: Medical claims data and surveys of glaucoma surgeons demonstrate that tube shunts are being selected with increasing frequency as an alternative to trabeculectomy. A 5-year pooled analysis of the Ahmed Baerveldt comparison study and Ahmed versus Baerveldt study found a higher rate of surgical success with the Baerveldt glaucoma implant compared with the Ahmed glaucoma valve, but Baerveldt implantation carried a higher risk of hypotony.

Cerebral blood flow modulations during antisaccade preparation in chronic hypotension.

Psychophysiology 2019 Mar 19;56(3):e13305. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Department of Psychology, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

In addition to symptoms including fatigue, dizziness, reduced drive, or mood disturbance, individuals with chronic low blood pressure (hypotension) frequently report cognitive complaints. While attentional deficits have been empirically confirmed, it is still unknown whether the impairments also encompass executive functions. This study investigated cerebral blood flow modulations in hypotension during a precued antisaccade/prosaccade task requiring the executive function of proactive inhibition in addition to preparatory attention.

1Smt. Kanuri Santhamma Centre for Vitreo-Retinal Diseases, L V Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, 500034 India.

Background: The close structural and microcirculatory co-relation between anterior and posterior segments of eye make them very vulnerable to complications when one of them is affected surgically. With the advent of anti-fibrotic agents in the management of glaucoma, the rates of vitreoretinal complications have become more frequent.

Main Body: Common retinal complications after glaucoma surgeries include choroidal detachment; ocular decompression retinopathy; haemorrhagic choroidal detachment; hypotony maculopathy; malignant glaucoma; vitreous haemorrhage; bleb endophthalmitis; retinal detachment. Read More

INTRAOPERATIVE OCULAR MANOMETRY IN SILICONE OIL-FILLED EYES WITH A BOSTON TYPE 1 KERATOPROSTHESIS.

Retina 2018 Jul 13. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Cincinnati Eye Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Purpose: To demonstrate a novel technique to measure the intraocular pressure in silicone oil (SO)-filled eyes with Boston Type 1 keratoprosthesis (KPro) during intraocular surgery.

Methods: In this retrospective case series, an ocular manometer that is predicated on a continuous fluid column between a pressure sensor and interior of the eye was designed and used to directly measure intraocular pressure during intraocular surgery in SO-filled eyes with KPro.

Results: Six eyes of six patients were included in the study. Read More

Pain in optic neuropathies.

Neurol Sci 2018 Jun;39(Suppl 1):25-31

Neuro-ophthalmology and Ocular Electrophysiology Center, Department of Ophthalmology, Scientific Institute Capitanio Hospital, Istituto Auxologico Italiano Foundation, Via Mercalli, 28, 20122, Milan, Italy.

Pain occurs with optic neuropathies associated with inflammatory central nervous system diseases (MS and NMO), idiopathic intracranial hypertension and spontaneous hypotension, giant cell arteritis, immunomediated systemic diseases, compressive lesions, or infective disorders. Pain can precede the onset of visual loss in acute optic neuritis, it can be irradiated to the orbital region in giant cell arteritis and parasellar compressive optic neuropathies, or it may be located to the back of the eye with posterior scleritis. History of symptoms together with complete neuro-ophthalmological examination must guide the differential diagnosis and neuroimaging. Read More

Conjunctival bleb compression sutures: An effective method of addressing hypotony after trabeculectomy or trabeculectomy-related procedures.

Eur J Ophthalmol 2018 Nov 11;28(6):731-734. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, UK.

Purpose:: Over-filtration is a well-known complication of trabeculectomy and related procedures, especially with adjunctive antimetabolites. Secondary hypotony can result in reduced visual acuity and compromise long-term surgical success. Persistent hypotony requires intervention and we describe an effective adaptation of placing conjunctival compression sutures directly over the scleral flap. Read More

Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore.

Pediatric uveitis differs from adult-onset uveitis and is a topic of special interest because of its diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Children with uveitis are often asymptomatic and the uveitis is often chronic, persistent, recurrent, and resistant to conventional treatment. Anterior uveitis is the most common type of uveitis in children; the prevalence of intermediate, posterior, and panuveitis varies geographically and among ethnic groups. Read More

Occult globe rupture: diagnostic and treatment challenge.

Surv Ophthalmol 2018 Sep - Oct;63(5):694-699. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Department of Ophthalmology, Geneva University Hospitals and School of Medicine, Geneva, Switzerland.

Occult globe rupture is a traumatic dehiscence of the sclera at or posterior to the rectus muscle insertions without a visible eye wall defect on slit lamp examination. Occult scleral ruptures are important because they can be difficult to diagnose, but normally require preoperative protection against external pressure to reduce risk of herniation of ocular contents through the rupture and then urgent surgical repair to restore eye wall structural integrity and achieve optimum prognosis. A deeper-than-normal anterior chamber with posteriorly retracted plateau iris seen immediately after acute ocular trauma is virtually pathognomonic of posterior globe dehiscence. Read More
