Transient Retinal Artery Occlusion After Uncomplicated Rhinoplasty.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Feb 2. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Dr. YOURhinoclinic (Private Clinic), Istanbul, Turkey.

Purpose: Loss of vision is an extremely rare and unexpected complication following a routine uncomplicated nasal surgery. In majority of patients, visual loss has attributed to retinal emboli which occur with retrograde flow of the intra-arterially injected agents into the nasal cavity or direct trauma to the optic nerve. In this report, the authors present a patient with unilateral decreased vision due to branch retinal artery occlusion soon after a routine nasal surgery. 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

Retinal oximetry and systemic arterial oxygen levels.

Acta Ophthalmol 2018 Nov;96 Suppl A113:1-44

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland.

Purpose: Continuous peripheral pulse oximetry for monitoring adequacy of oxygenation is probably the most important technological advance for patients' monitoring and safety in the last decades. Pulse oximetry has the disadvantage of measuring the peripheral circulation, and the only mean to measure oxygen content of the central circulation is by invasive technology. Determination of blood oxyhaemoglobin saturation in the retinal vessels of the eye can be achieved noninvasively through spectrophotometric retinal oximetry which provides access to the central nervous system circulation.

Central retinal artery occlusion.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2018 Dec;66(12):1684-1694

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, College of Medicine, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, USA.

The pathogeneses, clinical features, and management of central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) are discussed. CRAO consists of the following four distinct clinical entities: non-arteritic CRAO (NA-CRAO), transient NA-CRAO, NA-CRAO with cilioretinal artery sparing, and arteritic CRAO. Clinical characteristics, visual outcome, and management very much depend upon the type of CRAO. Read More

Department of Radio-diagnosis, University College of Medical Sciences and GTB Hospital (University Of Delhi), Delhi, India.

Ocular emergencies contribute to a large proportion of ocular pathologies. These may even be organ-threatening diseases such as central retinal artery and vein occlusion or globe rupture. Conventional physical examination may not always be feasible in emergency situations but decision-making in time is critical in the interest of patient in few of these conditions. Read More

MEK/ERK/1/2 sensitive vascular changes coincide with retinal functional deficit, following transient ophthalmic artery occlusion.

Exp Eye Res 2019 Feb 12;179:142-149. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Department of Clinical Sciences, Division of Experimental Vascular Research, Lund University, Lund, Sweden; Department of Clinical Experimental Research, Glostrup Research Institute, Rigshospitalet, Glostrup, Denmark.

Retinal ischemia remains a major cause of blindness in the world with few acute treatments available. Recent emphasis on retinal vasculature and the ophthalmic artery's vascular properties after ischemia has shown an increase in vasoconstrictive functionality, as previously observed in cerebral arteries following stroke. Specifically, endothelin-1 (ET-1) receptor-mediated vasoconstriction regulated by the MEK/ERK1/2 pathway. Read More
