Current trends of strabismus surgery in a tertiary hospital.

CONCLUSION: The adult strabismus surgery was three times more frequent than the children strabismus surgery. The third of the adults that were operated on were ≥60 years. The cranial nerve palsies were the most frequent diagnosis. Adjustable sutures were rarely used. Good outcomes were obtained in most of the patients at the end of follow-up.

This study was aimed to compare the ACT of desflurane with that of propofol-remifentanil in strabismus ambulatory surgery. METHODS: From November 2016 to December 2017, a total of 200 strabismus patients (aged 18-60 years old, and scheduled for elective ambulatory surgery at Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center) were randomly assigned to receive either propofol-based TIVA (group TIVA) or desflurane anesthesia (group DES) for maintenance of anesthesia. The primary outcome was the extubation time. Secondary outcomes included surgical time, anesthetic time, OR exit time, and Phase I and II recovery time. The intraoperative incide...

Conclusion: Refractive measurements under GA were more myopic than cycloplegic refraction (R1-1) measurements. It is important to consider that complete cycloplegia is not achieved under GA. PMID: 31985321 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This report aims to present the ophthalmological features, and identify the diagnosis and outcomes of strabismus surgery in AS patients. Diagnosis: Three children with exotropia were diagnosed with AS based on their typical clinical features. Interventions: All patients underwent multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) analysis and accepted lateral rectus recession surgery with the assistance of intravenous combined inhalation anesthesia. Outcomes: The maternal heritage deletion of chromosome 15q11.2-q13 was verified in all patients by MLPA. All patients with strabismus could not cooperate during t...

Publication date: Available online 26 November 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Tom Y. Pettigrew, Sarah J. SmithAbstractChildren are rarely able to tolerate being awake for any type of surgery under local anaesthesia, therefore the majority of paediatric eye surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Most patients presenting on a paediatric ophthalmology operating list will be otherwise healthy children who are suitable for day surgery. However, some children may have eye abnormalities as part of a congenital disorder. The perioperative plan should be formulated after assessment of the ch...

Publication date: Available online 25 November 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Stuart Young, Aravind BasavarajuAbstractThe majority of ophthalmic surgeries are performed as day cases under topical or regional anaesthesia with or without intravenous sedation. However, general anaesthesia is necessary in certain circumstances e.g. local anaesthetic allergy or patients who are unable to cooperate or to lie flat or still. Patients for ophthalmic surgery are frequently elderly with multiple comorbidities, such as diabetes and hypertension. Patients with rare genetic syndromes may present for eye s...

CONCLUSION: The combination of recession and resection procedures with nasal loop myopexy was found to be effective in correcting the ocular deviation and limitation to elevation in abduction by correcting the deflected course of superior rectus and medial rectus to result in an effective improvement of elevation in abduction. One case had an overcorrection of exotropia. There were no other major complications. PMID: 31612771 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Purpose of review To review recent studies on potential neurodevelopmental impacts on the pediatric population through general anesthesia events or intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injection. Recent findings Studies on this topic have been extensive with varied reported neurodevelopmental outcomes. Initial investigations in rodents and primates showed negative impact of anesthetics on neurodevelopment. Subsequent retrospective human reviews had mixed results whereas more recent sibling and prospective studies have been published without evidence of clinically significant impact. A similar na...

CONCLUSIONS: Compared to placebo or benzodiazepine, clonidine premedication was effective in reducing postoperative vomiting in pediatric patients undergoing ophthalmic surgery. Clonidine premedication also provided more reduction in postoperative pain when compared to placebo. The use of clonidine premedication was not associated with adverse hemodynamic events.

AbstractAimTo compare intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements obtained with the Perkins applanation tonometer and Icare PRO (ICP) rebound tonometer in anesthetized aphakic or strabismus children. Furthermore, intra-operator correlation and inter-operator correlation have been evaluated, along with the effects of central corneal thickness (CCT) on IOP measurements.MethodsSeventy children undergoing examination under anesthesia with sevoflurane for aphakic patients and for surgery for strabismus were included. IOP have been measured twice immediately after anesthesia induction with both Perkins applanation tonometer (PAT) an...
