Evaluation of the Protective Effect of an Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Device on the Ocular Surface in Dry Eye Patients during Cataract Surgery.
CONCLUSIONS: OVD applied to the ocular surface during cataract surgery had a protective effect on the ocular surface one week after surgery. PMID: 31612658 [PubMed - in process]
Conditions: Cataract; Analgesia; Ophthalmological Disorder Interventions: Drug: lignocaine; Procedure: Phacoemulsyfication; Procedure: Intraocular lens implantation; Behavioral: Visual Analog Scale for Pain; Behavioral: Brief Pain Inventory-short form; Diagnostic Test: Best corrected visual acuity measurment; Diagnostic Test: Slit-lam p biomicroscopy Sponsor: Medical University of Lublin Completed
Conclusion: Point of care ultrasonography is a useful, noninvasive tool in determining gastric content and volume. As majority of the patients presented with a full stomach for cataract surgery, we recommend that ophthalmologists and anesthesiologists follow preoperative fasting guidelines for cataract surgery.

[Same-eye comparison of pupillary dilation with an intraoperative standardized intracameral combination of mydriatics (Mydrane®) versus a preoperative ophthalmic (Mydriasert®) in standard cataract surgery in non-diabetic patients (French translation of the article)]. J Fr Ophtalmol. 2019 Oct 23;: Authors: de Faria A, Giorgi R, Cohen Salmon M, Bonnel S, Holweck G, Le Corre A, Chazalon E Abstract INTRODUCTION: Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery in the world, and its success depends in part on the quality of mydriasis. PURPOSE: To compare, for the same eye, the pupillary d...
CONCLUSIONS: This survey provided a comprehensive update of the present cataract surgery practices in the Republic of Korea. The results emphasized the increasing use of premium intraocular lenses, optical biometry, and topical anesthesia. PMID: 31612656 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Chadha RM, Dexter F, Brull SJ Abstract Background: We evaluated the validity of assessing patient satisfaction with the sedation regimen among patients being discharged 45 minutes after receiving midazolam. If most patients do not have recall, then the sedation cannot be considered complete at the time of evaluation. Methods: In this prospective cohort study, 20 patients underwent cataract surgery with nurse-administered midazolam and fentanyl. The 11-item Iowa Satisfaction with Anesthesia Scale was administered ≅30 minutes after sedation in the recovery room. Recalled items were evaluated next mo...
Conclusions: GDD implantation within the first 2 years of life is effective and safe. The low number of general anesthesia administrations required during the first postoperative year could help to reduce the burden placed on children and carers. Further research is required to directly compare the efficiency of GDD implantation with other surgical options.
