Efficacy of Intravitreal Bevacizumab for the Treatment of Zone I Type 1 Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Conclusion: Intravitreal bevacizumab injection is an effective method for the management of patients with Zone I ROP requiring treatment; however, some cases may progress to more advanced stages and require surgical management. Close monitoring for recurrence or progression is necessary. Eyes with persistent zone I ROP may progress to advanced stages when treated with intravitreal bevacizumab injection and re-treatment may be needed. PMID: 29403586 [PubMed]

ABSTRACT Patients undergoing cataract surgery are generally elderly, and many take drugs with systemic effects. The surgeon must be aware of the risks of continuing or discontinuing such medications perioperatively. Antiplatelet drugs and anticoagulants, prescribed to reduce the incidence of thromboembolic events, are often used in this population. This paper aims to review the perioperative use of antiplatelet and anticoagulant drugs in the setting of cataract surgery. Topical or intracameral anesthesia is preferred over anesthesia injected with needles. Aspirin can be safely continued in patients undergoing cataract surg...

ConclusionsHyaluronidase is not an essential adjuvant for peribulbar block for cataract surgeries. Appropriate deposition of a smaller volume of anesthetic agent and adequate ocular massage provide adequate and safe anesthesia.

She was found to have a nasal subconjunctival mass, which was confirmed to contain the crystalline lens after surgical exploration, along with a superior perilimbal suspected scleral rupture. There was accompanying vitreous haemorrhage, retinal detachment and subretinal haemorrhage that was managed by pars plana vitrectomy. Post operatively, she achieved a best corrected ...

Discussion–conclusionThere was only one case where the complication was aggravated due to the delay of care provision and this was because of a lack of information on the complications requiring an emergency return (abdominal pain after laparoscopy). In all the other cases, death would also probably have occurred during conventional hospitalisation, either because it was unavoidable or because the patient was too far from the surgery.

ConclusionsDuring peribulbar anesthesia, structures located in the intraconal space can be accidentally hit leading to complications such as described in the above report. Following the technical guidelines and using appropriate size needles may reduce the risk of such complication, but not completely.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosA anestesia peribulbar surgiu como uma opção mais segura quando comparada com o bloqueio retrobulbar intraconal. Ainda assim, a anestesia peribulbar não pode ser considerada isenta de riscos. Inúmeras complicações foram descritas quando da aplicaç...
