Subconjunctival bleedings in neonatal calves: a case series report.

BMC Vet Res 2022 Apr 27;18(1):152. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, Institute of Animal Science, University of Hohenheim, Schwerzstr. 15/4, 70599, Stuttgart, Germany.

Background: In animals, only few reports exist about the occurrence and causes of subconjunctival bleedings, especially in newborn calves. Most case reports and studies showed that the major risk factors for subconjunctival bleedings in animals are traumatic events such as birth trauma and traffic accidents, respectively. In neonatal babies, it is suggested that compression of the thorax and abdomen during delivery or forces generated in utero during labor may raise venous pressure to conjunctival vessels and can cause subconjunctival bleedings.

XEN Gel Staining with Trypan Blue: A Simple and Effective Technique to Improve Device Visualization during Implantation.

J Curr Glaucoma Pract 2021 Sep-Dec;15(3):161-163

Department of Ophthalmology, AOU Careggi, Florence, Tuscany, Italy.

The Xen Gel Stent (Allergan, Irvine, CA, USA) is a hydrophilic collagen-based gelatin tube of 6 mm in length which creates a channel of communication between the anterior chamber and the subconjunctival space allowing aqueous humor outflow. XEN is an , minimally invasive, glaucoma surgery device which has a better safety profile and offers a less invasive way of lowering intraocular pressure. Unfortunately, one of its weaknesses is that visualization of the implant during surgery is difficult, and this difficulty may be exacerbated, for instance, by a subconjunctival hemorrhage.

Association Between Subconjunctival Hemorrhage and Acute Coronary Syndrome: A 14-Year Nationwide Population-Based Cohort Study.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2021 1;8:728570. Epub 2021 Oct 1.

Institute of Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan.

Subconjunctival hemorrhage (SCH) is usually a benign ocular disorder that causes painless, redness under the conjunctiva. However, since SCH and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) share many vascular risk factors, studies have suggested that these two disorders may be significantly associated with each other, and evaluate the concomitance of ACS in patients with SCH. This population-based cohort study, enrolled 35,260 Taiwanese patients, and used the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database to identify patients with ACS and SCH. Read More
