Descemet Membrane Suturing for Large Descemet Membrane Detachment After Cataract Surgery
Conclusions: DM suturing can reattach DM, especially in moderate to severe, recurrent DMD with fewer postoperative complications and thereby reduce the need for corneal transplantation.
A 56-year-old Hispanic male individual with moderate primary open-angle glaucoma on maximal tolerated topical therapy with recent visual field progression presented with excessive glare due to cataract in the right eye. The patient underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification with supraciliary microstent implantation. Ten weeks postoperatively, he presented with global Descemet folds and focal corneal edema overlying the CyPass implant despite apparent adequate implant position (1 retention ring visible). The revision proved challenging as the anterior chamber portion of the implant was short. Nonetheless, the device was tr...
Fuchs uveitis syndrome (FUS) is a chronic, typically unilateral, ocular condition characterized by an asymptomatic mild inflammatory syndrome that can result in cataract and secondary glaucoma. Diagnosis is largely clinical because the etiology remains obscure. FUS is most likely the result of different insults or pathogenic mechanisms, including infections, autoimmune diseases, hereditary and sympathetic dysfunction. According to the infectious theory, the infection of herpes simplex virus, ocular toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus, rubella virus, and other viruses have been implicated in the pathogenesis of the disease.
Red reflex test at the maternity hospital: results from a tertiary hospital and variables associated with inconclusive test results☆☆: [[pt]]Teste do reflexo vermelho na maternidade: resultados de um hospital terciário e variáveis associadas a um Teste duvidoso. J Pediatr (Rio J). 2019 Oct 14;: Authors: Baldino VMCL, Eckert GU, Rossatto J, Wagner MB Abstract OBJECTIVES: Describe the results of the red reflex test in full-term newborns, as well as identify factors associated with red reflex test outcome and compare hospital length of stay between patients with inconclusive and normal ...
Conclusion: Cortical cataracts, stage 4 keratoconus, retinal black spots, and lack of glaucoma along with mutations of AIPL1 (c.862 C > T) can be present in LCA type 4. PMID: 31342828 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Oxidative stress, inflammation and autophagy are implicated in biochemical and morphological changes in these ocular tissues. The development of therapy is a major target for the management care of these ocular diseases. PMID: 30644339 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: Increased IOP at 2 hours is common after DMEK, but does not seem to influence early endothelial cell survival. One-month ECD was influenced by donor counts and combined cataract surgery.
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with high hyperopia often have ocular comorbidities. Such eyes may be surgically challenging, resulting in reduced benefits from cataract surgery compared to normal eyes. PMID: 29669369 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Severe and permanent visual loss in uveitis affects people predominantly of working age. It is probably underreported and a restructuring of the certificate of vision impairment may improve data collection. Early referral to a tertiary center may reduce the incidence of vision impairment. PMID: 29543542 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: It was found that avoidable causes of blindness were seen in 31% of cases and incurable causes in 45%. Optic nerve atrophy and retinal dystrophy are the emerging causes of blindness, underlining the need for genetic counseling and low vision rehabilitation centers, along with a targeted approach for avoidable causes of blindness.
