Childhood eye examination.

Childhood eye examination. Am Fam Physician. 2013 Aug 15;88(4):241-8 Authors: Bell AL, Rodes ME, Collier Kellar L Abstract Vision screening in children is an ongoing process, with components that should occur at each well-child visit. The purpose is to detect risk factors and visual abnormalities that necessitate treatment and to identify those patients who require referral to an ophthalmologist skilled in examining children. Screening can reveal conditions commonly treated in primary care and can aid in discussion of visual concerns with parents or caregivers. Vision screening begins with a review of family and personal vision history to identify risk factors requiring referral, including premature birth, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and a family history of strabismus, amblyopia, retinoblastoma, childhood glaucoma, childhood cataracts, or ocular or genetic systemic disease. Visual acuity measurement and external ocular examination are performed to recognize refractive error, childhood glaucoma, and various ocular conditions. Evaluation of fixation and alignment can identify amblyopia or strabismus. Red reflex examination is used to diagnose retinoblastoma, childhood cataracts, and other ocular abnormalities.

Identification of co‑expression modules and hub genes of retinoblastoma via co‑expression analysis and protein‑protein interaction networks. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 27;: Authors: Mao Y, Nie Q, Yang Y, Mao G Abstract Retinoblastoma is a common intraocular malignant tumor in children. However, the molecular and genetic mechanisms of retinoblastoma remain unclear. The gene expression dataset GSE110811 was retrieved from Gene Expression Omnibus. After preprocessing, coexpression modules were constructed by weighted gene coexpression network analysis (WGCNA), and modules associated with clinical traits ...

CONCLUSION AND IMPORTANCE: We present the second published case worldwide about anterior uveitis secondary to intracameral moxifloxacin, which may rarely cause hypertensive uveitis that may be confused with viral uveitis. This provides evidence on the importance of postoperative follow-up by the surgeon for an early referral and treatment of these cases. PMID: 32469689 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewImmediately sequential bilateral cataract surgery (ISBCS) has been gaining attention over the past decade as a more efficient way to address the growing need for cataract removal in an aging population, and yet delayed sequential bilateral cataract surgery (DSBCS) remains the standard of care in many ophthalmologic communities. This review discusses some of the reasons surgeons have been hesitant to adopt ISBCS and hopes to address both the pros and cons of the procedure in the current medical environment.Recent FindingsMany of the current arguments against the practice of ISBCS involve potential b...

AbstractCardiomyopathy is the leading cause of death in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Elevated troponin levels are observed in DMD and may vary with disease progression. We studied troponin levels in DMD related to cardiac fibrosis and native T1 measures. This is a prospective, cross-sectional, observational study of 30 DMD subjects measuring native T1 levels and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac MR imaging (CMR) correlated with temporally associated serum troponin I levels. Non-parametric analyses including Spearman correlations and Kruskal –Wallis test were performed between groups.pvalues resulting...
