Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of preoperative intravitreal injections of conbercept (IVC) and ranibizumab (IVR) on postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), vitreous hemorrhage (VH), and neovascular glaucoma (NVG) in a population with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) undergoing vitrectomy. DESIGN: Retrospective, cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: 386 patients with severe PDR (428 eyes). METHODS: The patients who did not receive IVC or IVR were assigned to group A (125 eyes), the patients who received IVR (0.5 mg) were assigned to group B (146 eyes), and the patient...

A genetic correlation is the proportion of phenotypic variance between traits that is shared on a genetic basis. Here we explore genetic correlations between diabetes- and glaucoma-related traits.

ConclusionThe prevalence of glaucoma was high. Identified determinants should be noted and accordingly a public health approach for early detection and adequate management is recommended.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: To identify novel velocity waveform parameters of the ophthalmic artery and central retinal artery by computer-aided image processing of Doppler ultrasonography measurements, and to evaluate correlations between the waveform parameters and different demographics and disease severity of open-angle glaucoma patients. METHODS: Thirty-six images of 36 open-angle glaucoma patients were considered. A semiautomated image processing code was used to detect the digitalized ophthalmic artery and central retinal artery velocity waveforms and to extract the waveform parameters. Concordance correlat...

ConclusionsAGTR1 A1166C andGpla/lla C807T/G873A polymorphisms are likely to be risk factors for CRVO.Adiponectin + 276 G/T SNP is likely to predispose to RVO in older subjects.

Conclusion: Dexamethasone implant should be considered as an effective and safe alternative in patients with BRVO and CRVO who have failed anti-VEGF therapy. Shortening the re-injection interval especially for CRVO cases should be considered. PMID: 31060385 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract The needs-based provision of medical services to the population represents a challenge for ophthalmology, not least as eye diseases become more frequent with age. Age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and cataract occur particularly often. So far only few current population-based data have been available in Germany; however, this is currently changing with several ongoing population-based cohort studies, such as the Gutenberg Health Study, the National Cohort and the Rhineland Study. Preliminary data from the Gutenberg Health Study show that the expected increase in the prevalen...

Conclusion: Patients with isolated thalamic atrophy were at a higher risk for not reaching 2-year NEDA-3 and for EDSS increase than patients with no identified brain atrophy. The groups were clinically indistinguishable. A single measurement of thalamic and whole brain atrophy could help identify patients needing most effective therapies from early on. Introduction The quantification of brain atrophy by MRI has become an increasingly important part of evaluating neurodegeneration in MS (1, 2). Atrophy measures can reflect the damage on the central nervous system (CNS) caused by the pathological processes of the dis...
