Atrial Fibrillation: An Underestimated Cause of Ischemic Monocular Visual Loss?

J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Hyperacute Stroke Unit, University College London Hospital, United Kingdom.

Introduction: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major cause of ischemic stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) and investigation for paroxysmal AF is recommended following an embolic brain event. In contrast, retinal ischemic monocular blindness is traditionally considered most linked to carotid artery disease (CAS) and investigating for AF is less vigilant. We aimed to determine the prevalence of AF in patients with ischemic monocular blindness. Read More

Risk of Stroke in Patients With Ocular Arterial Occlusive Disorders: A Retrospective Canadian Study.

J Am Heart Assoc 2019 Feb;8(3):e010509

1 Department of Neurosciences University of Calgary Alberta Canada.

Background Monocular vision loss, attributed to either central retinal artery occlusion ( CRAO ), branch retinal artery occlusion ( BRAO ), or ocular ischemic syndrome ( OIS ), is thought to be associated with an increased prevalence of cerebral infarcts. However, there is a paucity of data substantiating this. We aimed to investigate this relationship in a Canadian center and further understand the importance of associated internal carotid artery stenosis in potential clinical decision making. Read More

Central retinal artery occlusion - a new, provisional treatment approach.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

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

The retinal ganglion cells infarcted in central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) are the somata of the optic nerve axons, part of the central nervous system. Consequently, CRAO with inner retinal infarction is a small vessel stroke, usually with the devastating consequence of severe visual loss in the affected eye. At present, there is no generally accepted, evidence-based therapy of non-arteritic CRAO in contrast to ischemic cerebral stroke that has well accepted treatment protocols. Read More

Mesenchymal stem cell-derived extracellular vesicles and retinal ischemia-reperfusion.

Biomaterials 2019 Mar 9;197:146-160. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Departments of Anesthesiology, USA; Ophthalmology and Visual Science, College of Medicine, USA. Electronic address:

Retinal ischemia is a major cause of vision loss and impairment and a common underlying mechanism associated with diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and central retinal artery occlusion. The regenerative capacity of the diseased human retina is limited. Our previous studies have shown the neuroprotective effects of intravitreal injection of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and MSC-conditioned medium in retinal ischemia in rats. Read More

Functional and morphologic study of retinal hypoperfusion injury induced by bilateral common carotid artery occlusion in rats.

Sci Rep 2019 Jan 14;9(1):80. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, China-Japan Friendship Hospital, Beijing, 100029, China.

Retinal hypoperfusion injury is the pathophysiologic basis of ocular ischemic syndrome (OIS) which often leads to severe visual loss. In this study, we aimed to establish a rat model of retinal chronic hypoperfusion by bilateral common carotid artery occlusion (BCCAO) and observe changes in the retinal function and morphology. We found that model rats showed retinal arteriosclerosis, slight dilated retinal vein, small hemangiomas, hemorrhages, vascular segmental filling, and nonperfused areas after 2 weeks of BCCAO.
