Compressive optic neuropathy secondary to an allergic reaction to hyaluronidase.

Compressive optic neuropathy secondary to an allergic reaction to hyaluronidase. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol. 2019 Jul 04;: Authors: Alcubierre R, Sanchez-Dalmau BF, Mousavi K Abstract A 58 year-old woman presented with severe chemosis and ophthalmoparesis on her left eye 8hours after uncomplicated cataract surgery under sub-tenon anaesthesia. Recovery of extrinsic motility was observed after corticosteroid and antihistamine treatment, but a non-haemorrhagic papillary oedema and a concentric defect of visual field were found. It progressed to papillary atrophy with preserved central vision, but with a significant visual field constriction. The aetiological study revealed an allergy to hyaluronidase that was used as adjuvant to the anaesthesia. This complication needs to be promptly diagnosed and treated, as the swelling of the orbital tissues can cause damage to the optic nerve. PMID: 31280939 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1 (APS1) is a scarce polyendocrinopathy with autosomal recessive inheritance results from defects in the human autoimmune regulatory (AIRE) gene. In addition to three major manifestations of APS1 including mucocutaneous candidiasis, hypoparathyroidism, and Addison's disease, ophthalmic problems such as keratoconjunctivitis, dry eye, iridocyclitis, and cataract can be seen in these patients. In this article, we introduced two siblings presented with nail dystrophia, severe photophobia, and keratitis since early childhood which genetic examination revealed single nucle...

Abstract Allergic asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease, which involves many cellular and cellular components. Cataract is a condition that affects the transparency of the lens, which the opacity of the lens caused by any innate or acquired factor degrades its transparency or changes in color. Both of them belong to diseases induced by immune disorders or inflammation. We want to confirm the signaling pathways involved in the regulation of asthma and cataract simultaneously, and provide reference for the later related experiments. So we conducted a scoping review of many databases and searched for studies (Acad...

This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of XEN45 gel stent (Allergan plc, Dublin, Ireland) in East Asian patients with glaucoma.MethodsA retrospective study of consecutive XEN45 gel stent implantation surgeries with or without concurrent cataract surgery from May 2017 to August 2018 was performed in a single institution. The clinical charts of all cases were reviewed to examine the safety and efficacy of the implant. Primary outcome measures were intraocular pressure (IOP), number of topical glaucoma medications required, additional procedures done and adverse outcomes. All patients included were required to fu...

;rez López Sánchez There is a high prevalence of comorbidities among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Comorbidities are likely common in patients with any COPD degree and are associated with increased mortality. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of thirty-one different COPD comorbidities and to evaluate the association between physical activity (PA) levels in people with COPD residing in Spain. Cross-sectional data from the Spanish National Health Survey 2017 were analysed. A total of 601 adults (52.2% females) with COPD aged 15 to 69 participated in this ...

ConclusionsThe DEX implant is an effective medication for the treatment of posterior segment uveitis, uveitic macular edema, and results in improved visual acuity. Development of elevated IOP and cataract should be closely monitored as they are tangible risks associated with the DEX implant. This study was not able to determine whether the DEX implant was more effective as a monotherapy or as an adjunctive therapy to systemic immunomodulatory treatment.

ConclusionsTo the best of our knowledge, this is the first report to describe corneal ectasia in a patient with keratoconus following phacoemulsification surgery. Cataract surgeons should provide extra caution to patients with keratoconus and take into consideration this rare but potentially sight-threatening complication.

Micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) stents are quickly becoming the norm. A new study from Market Scope titled “2019 Glaucoma Surgical Device Market Report,” shows that MIGS stents account for almost half of all glaucoma surgical device revenue in 2019. This is an even more impressive feat for the devices considering the loss of revenue that occurred from the Cypass Micro-Stent being recalled nearly a year ago. Alcon pulled Cypass off the market after five-year data revealed a higher rate of cell loss compared to patients who had cataract surgery alone. However, the report said Cypass...
