This study compares the changes in central corneal thickness and post op visual outcome between phacoemulsification and manual small incision cataract surgery in Indian eyes with pseudoexfoliation syndrome with grade II and III nuclear cataracts: a single surgeon series

ConclusionIn moderately hard nuclear cataracts with PXF, phacoemulsification provides better unaided visual outcome with lesser endothelial dysfunction than MSICS in immediate and late post op.

AbstractObjectiveTo verify the amount of radiation exposure to the eye of operators during endocardiovascular surgery (ECVS) in hybrid operating room (HOR), which increases the risk of cataracts in surgeons.MethodsFifty cases of ECVS (including 36 transcatheter aortic valve implantation and 14 thoracic endovascular repair) using the transfemoral approach performed from February 2020 to July 2020 were included. A measurement device was attached to the left side of the head of the operators and their assistants to measure the cumulative dose (CD) of intraoperative radiation exposure. The subjects were divided into the contro...

CONCLUSIONS: There is a possibility that gains in QoL plateau after a certain level of visual acuity improvement. While improvement can be detected with a general health QoL measure, this measure may require additional psychometric validation to the particular population beforehand. Otherwise, a combination of vision-specific outcome measures will provide the most reliable estimate.PMID:34514886 | DOI:10.1177/11206721211045869

This study is a single-center analysis of 62 eyes undergoing phakic (age mean ± SD 52 ± 6.43), 518 eyes undergoing pseudophakic (73.5 ± 8.57), and 557 eyes undergoing triple DMEK (67.93 ± 8.57). Outcome measures were changes in best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA), central corneal thickness, endothelial cell density (ECD), rebubbling rates within the first year after surgery, and the need for cataract surgery within the first 2 years after phakic DMEK. Results: The preoperative BSCVA (mean ± SD; logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution) was 0.30 ± 0.22 in the p...

AbstractHypoparathyroidism is an orphan disease with ill-defined epidemiology that is subject to geographic variability. We conducted this study to assess the demographics, etiologic distribution, treatment patterns and complication frequency of patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism in Turkey. This is a retrospective, cross-sectional database study, with collaboration of 30 endocrinology centers located in 20 cities across seven geographical regions of Turkey. A total of 830 adults (mean age 49.6  ± 13.5 years; female 81.2%) with hypoparathyroidism (mean duration 9.7 ± 9.0&...

This study aims to obtain the main parameters that affect the injection force exerted in the ejection of an intraocular lens (IOL) through syringe-type injectors. For that purpose, ejection tests were carried out in vitro, measuring the resistance force throughout the entire delivery process. The effect of IOL material, haptic design, IOL thickest area and ophthalmic viscosurgical device (OVD) was studied by ejecting seven IOLs with four syringe-type injectors of different sizes, 3.0, 2.2 and 1.8 mm. In all injectors, plate hydrophilic IOLs present the lowest resistance forces; hydrated C-loop hydrophobic IOLs present high...

ConclusionSurgery for refractory uveitis under ADA treatment is safe and achieves good visual outcome and uveitis control if inflammation exists before surgery. ADA does not increase the risk of infections. Intraoperative findings of UME at surgery requires attention for postoperative relapse.
