CONCLUSIONS: In summary, the short-term cost-cost comparison demonstrates that steroid implants can provide significant cost savings versus in-label anti-VEGF treatment for center-involving diabetic macular edema. Single application of the long-lasting Fluocinolone acetonide implant is the most cost-efficient in-label treatment option. PMID: 29452450 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Background: The aim of the study was to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of the Trabectome for Chinese glaucoma patients. Methods: This was a multicenter, retrospective, observational study. Glaucoma patients, except those with neovascular glaucoma, with/without a visually significant cataract were enrolled. The patients received Trabectome or a combined surgery with phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. The primary outcome evaluation was a reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP), and the secondary outcomes were a reduction in glaucoma medication, the 2-year success percent...

Abstract PURPOSE: Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) still represents the main long-term complication of cataract surgery. Research into pharmacologic PCO prophylaxis is extensive. One promising candidate drug is methotrexate (MTX). Our aim is to determine the in vitro feasibility of MTX-loaded poly(lactic-co-glycolic) (PLGA) biomatrices sprayed on intraocular lenses (IOLs) as a drug-delivery implant. METHODS: Hydrophilic and hydrophobic acrylic IOLs were spray-coated with MTX-loaded PLGA. Unsprayed, solvent only, and solvent-PLGA-sprayed IOLs served as controls. All IOLs were evaluated for their growth-in...

With the use of femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery (FLACS), however, the continuous ...

CONCLUSIONS: Our success rate was inferior to the EUREQUO and RCOphth NOD studies, with the percentage of patients acquiring a postoperative VA ≤0.3logMAR being 98% and 89%, respectively. However, the populations were not comparable. It is hoped that this study will encourage other public hospitals in Spain to undertake audits and share their results, in order to provide a tool for constructive criticism and quality improvement initiatives.
