Visual outcomes and complications of congenital cataract surgery.
CONCLUSION: Congenital cataract surgery appears to be safe and effective when combined with early, conscientious amblyopia treatment. Bilateral congenital cataracts had better visual outcome than unilateral cataract. PMID: 30898370 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: Both SF6 and C3F8 appear to have achieved similar visual outcomes and primary closure rates and neither was associated with an increased risk of adverse events. Considering the more rapid visual recovery with SF6, there appears to be no evidence to support C3F8 as the tamponade agent of choice for macular hole surgery. PMID: 30993017 [PubMed]

Authors: Kopecky A, Nemcansky J Abstract Pars plana vitrectomy is currently the most common technique used in retinal surgery. Although primarily involving the posterior segment of the eye it also affects the anterior segment. As this is a less published topic, the aim of this paper was to review the literature on changes in the anterior segment after uncomplicated pars plana vitrectomy using data based literature search. The conclusions are that even in otherwise ophthalmologically healthy patients, complications may occur in the anterior segment. Surgeons need to pay utmost attention in glaucoma patients and in t...

Several exact and asymptotic properties of the design are studied. Stage-wise treatment selection procedures based on the proposed response-adaptive design are also suggested to exclude the worse performing treatment(s) at earlier stages. Detailed simulation study is carried out to evaluate the proposed selection procedures. The applicability of the proposed methodol...
This study shows that not only are Glaukosâ iStents as effective as once-daily topical travoprost in controlling IOP, but they also succeed at maintaining IOP reductions over the long-term with fewer additional medications.â The San Clemente, CA-based company has been on full court press for a while now. Earlier this year, at the 37th annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, the company unveiled a series of products and initiatives that would see it transition into a hybrid surgical, pharmaceutical, and medical device company. Â Â
FINDINGSUCLA researchers found that eliminating routine but unnecessary procedures before people undergo cataract surgery has the potential to save costs and resources for hospitals serving lower-income patients.Forgoing routine chest x-rays, electrocardiograms and other preoperative procedures — which studies have found to have no clinical benefit prior to cataract surgery — was associated with a savings of $67,241 over three years at one of the medical centers analyzed in the study. The change was also associated with other benefits – for instance, one licensed vocational nurse had approximately 70 perc...
Intraocular lens surface properties, such as surface roughness, may influence the interaction between the material surface and cells. A smooth and regular surface may reduce the incidence of posterior capsular opacification.
After Victus femtosecond laser pretreatment, anterior chamber cytokines increased. Despite this rise, the postoperative anterior chamber flare was similar to controls, probably due to the reduced phacoemulsification energy.
To develop and test the validity of a surgical competency assessment tool for simulated small-incision cataract surgery (SICS).
Conclusions: The authors found a reduced requirement for GA when “Choosing Wisely' initiative was used based on the GDS stage.
