This patient clearly has visual impairment attributable to (1) a significantly dislocated IOL, and (2) iris pigment defects probably because of mechanical contact between the poorly secured and anteriorly dislocated IOL. The goal is to reposition or exchange the IOL with a placement such that there is no contact with uveal tissue. This patient is young; therefore, any repair should be undertaken with the idea that it will be durable for 30 to 40 years.

Alok Sen, Rajesh Joshi, Rashmi Kashikar, Tanya JainIndian Journal of Ophthalmology 2019 67(10):1748-1750 A 17-years-old boy presented with cataract, 360° choroidal effusion and disc oedema secondary to chronic hypotony. Gonioscopy and AS-OCT revealed 2 clock hours of cyclodialysis in the superonasal quadrant. The case was successively managed with phacoemulsification with foldable IOL in the bag and Cionni's ring sutured in the superonasal quadrant. Post surgery, the BCVA improved from counting finger 1 meter to 20/40. IOP returned to normal and there was resolution of choroidal effusion and fundus signs. The cas...

Three patients with iridodialysis were recruited. A 6-0 polypropylene suture was cut to the proper length and flanged by cautery. A long (19 mm) ultra-thin 30G needle was inserted in the anterior chamber from the sclera around the iris and penetrated in the dialyzed iris, then exiting through the cornea on the contralateral side. The flanged polypropylene suture was inserted in the needle from the unflanged side. After the 30G needle was withdrawn, the flanged suture remained, passing the dialyzed iris and sclera.

In conclusion, there is solid evidence that obesity deregulates cellular mechanisms related to nutrient sensing. Altered Intercellular Communication It is accepted that aging impacts the organism at the cellular level, but also decreases the capacity of cells of an organism to interact. During aging, there is a decreased communication at the neuronal, neuroendocrine, and endocrine levels. Two of the most compelling examples of impaired communication are inflammaging and immunosenescence. The inflammaging phenotype results in elevated cytokines. These cytokines can accelerate and propagate the aging process. T...

CONCLUSIONS: Endophthalmitis following suture removal though rare, is observed most commonly in the pediatric population and has an acute and a fulminant course. Streptococcus pneumoniae was the most commonly isolated microorganism. Visual acuity outcomes were poor despite prompt recognition of endophthalmitis and appropriate antibiotic therapy.

CONCLUSIONS: Low- or very low-certainty evidence indicates that there may be little or no difference between PPV and scleral buckling in terms of primary success rate, visual acuity gain and final anatomical success in treating primary RRD. Low-certainty evidence suggests that there may be less retinal redetachment in the PPV group. Some adverse events appeared to be more common in the PPV group, such as cataract progression and new iatrogenic breaks, whereas others were more commonly seen in the scleral buckling group such as choroidal detachment.

ConclusionsFacility complexity appears to play a role in adherence to surgical infection prevention guidelines. Lower complexity facilities with limited infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship resources may be important targets for quality improvement. Such interventions may be especially useful for genitourinary and ear/nose/throat surgical subspecialties. Increasing pharmacy, antimicrobial stewardship and/or infection prevention resources to promote more evidence-based care may support surgical providers in lower complexity ambulatory surgery centers and hospital outpatient departments in their efforts to impr...
