Medial rectus plication for consecutive exotropia in a patient with stretched scar syndrome

We report a case of stretched scar syndrome in a 12-year-old girl with consecutive exotropia who had previously been treated with bilateral medial rectus muscle recessions. Stretched scar syndrome was confirmed intraoperatively, and bilateral medial rectus muscle plication was performed, successfully restoring normal alignment. Use of plication rather than resection of rectus muscles (stretched scar) can reduce the risk of a lost or slipped muscle and reduce surgical trauma and bleeding.

CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis found cardiovascular factors to be the main causes for both 30-day and 1‑year rehospitalization. Heart failure represented the most common cardiovascular event at both short-term and mid-term follow-up. Several baseline characteristics and procedure-related factors were deemed unfavorable predictors of readmission. Importantly, transfemoral access and female gender were associated with a lower risk of readmission. PMID: 31807789 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Diplopia and strabismus are rare complications after CRS in the U.S. military population. These procedures continue to increase the operational readiness of our service members with minimal risk of these potentially debilitating complications. Overall, this study provides support for the continued use of PRK and LASIK despite study limitations related to the use of large databases for retrospective review. Future prospective studies using delineated preoperative and postoperative examinations with sensorimotor testing included may be able to resolve the limitations of this study.

Conclusion: This study suggested that oversewing the staple line during LSG has a significant clinical value: it decreased the incidence of postoperative bleeding, postoperative leakage; moreover, it also significantly prolonged the operative time and but did not change hospital stay. More high-quality and large sample RCTs are expected to get more accurate results. PMID: 31805796 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Dr. David Hunter is experienced in using traditional strabismus surgery and Botox injection to correct a child’s crossed eye. If you see that your child’s eye has become crossed, or he or she complains of having double vision, you may be struggling to find clear answers about what caused this to happen and the best way to get your child’s eyes working together again. When the sudden onset of an inward-turning crossed eye doesn’t respond to glasses and isn’t associated with other systemic or structural disease, it’s known as acute comitant esotropia. This condition is quite rare...

CONCLUSION: The overall incidence could be reduced to a level below 20 %. Particularly in patients with a high risk of PONV, TIVA could clearly reduce the incidence. However, the incidence in patients with 2 risk factors is still high (30-39 %). Therefore, it is important to reconsider the effort involved with risk screening and individually adapting anesthesia. Risk stratification means a pre- and perioperative effort. Therefore, we advocate a more liberal approach for PONV prophylaxis. PMID: 27295547 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion There are many legitimate reasons why parents don’t want their child subjected to what is in any vaccine. We are outraged at the disregard for Cerenity’s life and what her family is going through. In a situation such as what happened to Cerenity, it is absurd doctors would blatantly ignore Cerenity’s vaccine reactions and tell her parents to continue vaccinating her. We hope Cerenity will get the necessary treatment to heal from these vaccine-related injuries. If you have experienced a similar situation and have helpful advice to offer, please reach out to VacTruth, to get in touch with Cerenit...

CONCLUSION: The Moria One Use-Plus SBK microkeratome is an excellent device that allows the easy creation of thin corneal flaps and regular and smooth corneal beds, safely and predictably even in extremely flat corneas without complications. The safety, efficacy and predictability are quite comparable to the general LASIK group. PMID: 26549141 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We describe a “noose technique” that facilitates complete surgical excision of all forms of pediatric adnexal and anterior orbital extraocular cysts, including conjunctival retention cysts, parasitic cysts involving the conjunctiva, Tenon's capsule, or rectus muscle, superficial cysts, and deep dermoid cysts. The technique provides good exposure and facilitates handling of tissues, maintains surgical planes, minimizes bleeding, decreases injury to collateral tissues, reduces surgical time, allows for utilization of less skilled assistants, and ensures complete excision in most cases. The noose technique is a ve...
