Early postoperative outcomes of pterygium surgery: Sutures versus autogenous serum in-situ fixation of limbal conjunctival autograft.

Life Sci 2019 Mar 10;221:93-98. Epub 2019 Feb 10.

Department of Ophthalmology, J.J.M. Medical College, Davangere 577004, Karnataka, India.

Limbal Conjunctival Autograft Transplantation (LCAT) is considered to be the most effective treatment option for pterygium with the least recurrence rate and rapid restoration of normal epithelial morphology. Of the many available methods for securing Limbal Conjunctival Autograft (LCAG), sutures and autogenous serum in-situ are cost-effective and offers better outcomes.

Aim: To compare the outcome of surgeries between the two groups: Group I - LCAG secured with autogenous serum in-situ versus Group II - LCAG secured with sutures. Read More

Electronic address:

Noninfectious uveitis is a potentially blinding ocular condition that often requires treatment with corticosteroids to prevent inflammation-related ocular complications. Severe forms of uveitis such as panuveitis that affects the whole eye often require a combination of topical and either regional or systemic corticosteroid. Regional corticosteroids are currently delivered inside the eye by intravitreal injection (e. Read More

Intravitreal injection of low-dose gentamicin for the treatment of recurrent or persistent uveitis in horses: Preliminary results.

BMC Vet Res 2019 Jan 16;15(1):29. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Leipzig, Department for Horses, Leipzig, Germany.

Background: Despite appropriate medical therapy, many horses with equine recurrent uveitis continue to suffer from recurrent bouts of inflammation. Surgical intervention via the pars plana vitrectomy or suprachoroidal cyclosporine implant placement may control and/or prevent recurrences, however, these procedures may be contraindicated, unavailable, or declined by an owner. Thus, an effective adjunctive treatment option may help to improve the clinical outcomes in those situations. Read More

Serkan Ergözen

Turk J Ophthalmol 2017 Oct 27;47(5):296-297. Epub 2017 Oct 27.

ASAL Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Center, Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Clinic, Ankara, Turkey.

The mystical beauty of the subaquatic world is undoubtedly attractive, and many techniques and forms of equipment have been developed in the last few decades to allow us to explore the underwater world. A swimmer or diver needs swimming goggles or a diving mask to have clear vision because of the refraction problem between the eye and the water interface. Although these items are effective for clear vision, they can result in "ocular or facial barotrauma of descent" during diving. Read More

Bilateral large subconjunctival haemorrhages unmasking immune thrombocytopenic purpura during retinopathy of prematurity screening.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Oct 4;2017. Epub 2017 Oct 4.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Dr Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, New Delhi, Delhi, India.

Although thrombocytopenia is known to be associated with pathogenesis of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is rare in infancy and not reported to occur with ROP. A preterm infant with aggressive posterior ROP developed bilateral massive subconjunctival haemorrhage after scleral indentation during screening. On evaluation, the infant was found to have severe ITP. Read More

Short-term in vivo morphological changes of amniotic membrane after fibrin glue-assisted pterygium surgery on anterior segment optical coherence tomography: a case presentation.

BMC Ophthalmol 2017 Oct 3;17(1):181. Epub 2017 Oct 3.

Department of Ophthalmology, Yeungnam University College of Medicine, Daegu, Republic of Korea.

Background: The evaluations of morphological changes of amniotic membrane (AM), even after successful AM transplantation surgery without complications, may be difficult. Moreover, there was no report regarding morphological changes after fibrin glue-assisted AM transplantation with pterygium excision. Here, we highlight and describe the use of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the evaluation of the morphological features of amniotic membrane (AM) and of associated in vivo structural changes after fibrin glue-assisted pterygium surgery.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2017 Aug;27(8):511-513

Department of Hepatogastroenterology, Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT), Karachi.

Acute liver failure (ALF) is an acute medical emergency which carries high mortality without liver transplantation. Various hepatotropic viruses, drug induced liver injury, auto immune hepatitis, and metabolic liver diseases are the commonly implicated etiologic agents. Liver involvement in dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is quite common, but acute liver failure is its rare complication. Read More

Forensic Pathology Services, Wantage, Oxfordshire, UK.

Traumatic (crush) asphyxia is a rare condition caused by severe compression of the chest and trunk leading to often extreme so-called asphyxial signs, including cyanosis in head and neck regions, multiple petechiae, and subconjunctival haemorrhage as well as neurological manifestations.

Aims: To investigate the neuropathology and brain weight in traumatic asphyxia caused by different accidents such as industrial accidents and road traffic collision.

Material And Methods: Post mortem records of 20 cases of traumatic asphyxia (TA) resulting from different causes of which four brains are available for comprehensive neuropathological examination. Read More

Forceps trauma in a newborn presenting as iris heterochromia.

J AAPOS 2017 Oct 1;21(5):425-426. Epub 2017 Sep 1.

Department of Ophthalmology, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

Birth-associated ocular trauma is common and often minor, including subconjunctival and retinal haemorrhage and eyelid edema. Significant ocular trauma during birth, usually associated with forceps-assisted delivery, is rarer and can include Descemet's membrane rupture, lid lacerations, hyphema, Purtcher retinopathy, facial nerve palsy, corneal edema, and corneal laceration. We report the first case of ocular birth trauma from forceps presenting as isolated iris heterochromia and a pseudo rubeosis iridis, which completely resolved by 1 month of age with no known adverse ocular sequelae.
