A Comparative Study between Ultrasound Cycloplasty and Cyclocryotherapy for the Treatment of Neovascular Glaucoma.

Conclusion: The UCP treatment and cyclocryotherapy both showed good efficacy in significantly reducing the IOP. However, the UCP treatment was safer with less postoperative complications and adverse effects. Thus, the overall treatment effect of the UCP was more efficient than that of cyclocryotherapy.

Conclusion This paper summarizes the current findings regarding the anti-colitis activity of plant-derived alkaloids and shows how these alkaloids exhibit significant and beneficial effects in alleviating colonic inflammation. These natural alkaloids are not only promising agents for IBD treatment but are also components for developing new wonder drugs. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms or toxicological evaluation of most plant-derived alkaloids still require much scientific research, and their actual efficacies for IBD patients have not been verified well in field research. Thus, further clinical trials to elu...

CONCLUSION:: Phacolytic glaucoma can present with a cloudy cornea and a turbid anterior chamber mimicking endophthalmitis. Careful examination and ancillary investigations including ultrasound biomicroscopy was helpful in making an accurate diagnosis. PMID: 30950286 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A 75-year-old Ethiopian-born woman (emigrated aged 48 years) was admitted with acute recurrent vomiting and mild abdominal pain. She had long-standing orally treated diabetes, hypertension and glaucoma. Examination, ECG, chest and abdominal X-rays were unremarkable save for tachycardia 130/min. Hb was 10.2 g/dl, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) 18 mg/dl, creatinine 1.6 mg/dl (previously 1.0), C-reactive protein (CRP) 30.4 mg/dl, normal amylase and liver enzymes. Her ‘gastroenteritis’ improved with fluids and she was quickly discharged, only to be readmitted within 6 days with anorexia and diffuse abdominal pain. Exami...

Rationale: Uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema (UGH) syndrome could be identified by conventional ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and B-ultrasonography, but failed in some untypical cases. We introduced a novel application of B-ultrasonography in diagnosis of UGH syndrome in a rare case. Patient concerns: A 60-year-old woman was referred for distending pain with blurred vision for more than 1 month in the right eye after cataract surgery. Diagnoses: B-ultrasound scanner and UBM demonstrated the Intraocular Lens (IOL) was centered in the bag. No chafing in all directions was detected between IOL and iris/ciliary body. The propo...

​BY ARJUN BHARADWAJ; MARGARET GAVOR, MBChB, MPH; &KHALID MALIK, MDA 65-year-old man presented to the emergency department complaining of sudden-onset left-sided abdominal pain followed by a “seizure.” His abdominal pain started a few hours prior to presentation, was sharp in nature, and radiated to his back and umbilicus. The pain waxed and waned, worsened when he walked or sat up, and at its worst was a 10/10. He took a laxative and two antacids, but received no relief.Each “seizure” episode lasted about 30 seconds and occurred every five minutes. He said he felt drained after each event but ...

Conclusion: With high percentage of IOP reduction and a good safety profile observed in our study, HIFU-based ultrasonic cyclocoagulation might become a promising alternative to cyclodestructive methods. Long-term efficacy and safety need further assessment. The study was registered with Chinese Clinical Trial Registry (http://www.chictr.org.cn; Registration number: ChiCTR-OOC-17014028).

Conclusion: Our short-term results reveal that UCP is a simple, safe, and noninvasive procedure which enables to significantly reduce the IOP in patients with OAG. The study results in Indian eyes corroborate findings in earlier studies on Caucasian eyes.

We report a rare case of lens subluxation that has a possible relationship with LPI treatment. Patient concerns: A 54-year-old female patient was initially referred for surgical treatment of medication-uncontrollable angle closure glaucoma in her left eye. The patient had undergone Neodymium:YAG LPI at an outside hospital 2 months prior to the presentation due to an episode of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). About 5 days after the LPI, she had spontaneous blurred vision, redness, and pain in the left eye. Her IOP was found to re-rise and was not controlled well even with maximum tolerated anti-glaucoma medications du...

Conclusion: Intravitreal anti–vascular endothelial growth factor therapy for breast cancer metastatic to the iris with secondary neovascular glaucoma provided good local control for a limited follow-up period, because the patient died because of systemic complications of her disease.

Conclusion: Patients with suprachoroidal haemorrhages should be closely monitored as they might subsequently develop acute angle closure despite an initially open angle and well-controlled INR and IOP. Excessive anticoagulation needs to be prevented to minimise the risk of sight-threatening complications.Case Rep Ophthalmol 2016;7:233 –238
