Amblyopia, Strabismus May Slow Test Performance in Children
THURSDAY, June 14, 2018 -- Children with certain eye conditions -- amblyopia or strabismus -- require more time to fill out multiple-choice answer forms, according to a study published online June 14 in JAMA Ophthalmology. Krista R. Kelly, Ph.D.,...
ConclusionsNearly all parents in our study indicated that they would want to be informed of resident involvement by the attending surgeon. The vast majority would consent to having an ophthalmology resident assist in their child’s strabismus surgery, and more than one-third would consent to having the resident perform their child’s strabismus surgery. Obtaining informed consent prior to resident involvement increases transparency and highlights the importance of ophthalmology residency education and may also strengthening the doctor-patient relationship.
To explore patterns in parents ’ understanding and preferences related to ophthalmology resident participation in their child’s strabismus surgery.
To report the long-term strabismus rate in salvaged retinoblastoma (Rb) patients and investigate possible risk factors leading to strabismus.
CONCLUSION: Maintaining a low dose of remifentanil (0.05 μg/kg/min) throughout the recovery phase attenuated the incidence of emergence delirium in children undergoing strabismus surgery under sevoflurane anesthesia. PMID: 30004624 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: By relying on thorough knowledge of the slit lamp's fundamental optics it is possible to suitably document all essential fields of ophthalmology using slit lamp videography. Slit lamp videography opens up a wide range of documentation possibilities, especially for the routine clinical work of general ophthalmologists. PMID: 30006769 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: This procedure is comparable to traditional procedures with the advantages of no need to tenotomy or splitting and can be a good alternative to conventional Hummelsheim's procedure. PMID: 29985743 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionComitant exophoria showed increased resting CBF in eye movement-related brain areas including supplementary eye field, cingulate eye field and frontal eye field, which could be an explanation of the brain function compensation for the ocular motility disorders in the CE patients.
ConclusionSingle muscle strabismus surgery to correct horizontal strabismus had a variable outcome. Larger recession may help in achieving better outcomes. Properly designed prospective studies may help in identifying the factors affecting the outcomes of single muscle strabismus surgeries.
ConclusionsStrabismic patients with a lower socioeconomic status are more likely to achieve HRQOL success following surgery. We also show that nondiplopic patients have more psychosocial concerns than those with diplopia and that this disparity persists even after strabismus surgery.
ConclusionsIn our study cohort, strabismus surgery without removal of the scleral buckle resulted in motor success and alleviated diplopia in the majority of patients with prior RD repair.
