An elderly patient with acute transient outer retinal disruption resembling bilateral multiple evanescent white dot syndrome

Conclusion: Our case demonstrates multimodal retinal imaging findings resembling multiple evanescent white dot syndrome in an elderly patient. The bilateral presentation, presence of subretinal deposits before symptom onset, and older age of the patient were atypical features for this entity.

Authors: Ryu B, Sato S, Mochizuki T, Inoue T, Okada Y, Niimi Y Abstract Capillary malformation-arteriovenous malformation (CM-AVM) syndrome is a newly described entity characterized by autosomal dominantly inherited multifocal capillary malformations caused by RASA1 mutations (CM-AVM1) or EPHB4 mutations (CM-AVM2). Concurrent high-flow vascular anomalies in the brain are often present in the form of intracranial AVM or arteriovenous fistula (AVF). These high-flow lesions are often identified at or soon after birth because of the characteristic unique capillary malformations or a systemic disorder due to a high-flow...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate factors associated with macular vessel density and to analyze their effects according to glaucoma stage.Study designRetrospective cross-sectional study.MethodsA total of 72 healthy eyes and 147 open-angle glaucomatous eyes were studied. All eyes underwent optical coherence tomography and visual field examinations. Clinical variables were compared according to the glaucoma stage. Relationships between macular vessel density (mVD) and other variables were analyzed using linear regression and segmented analyses.ResultsAge (P = 0.010) and signal strength (P

This ECG was texted to me, initially with no information:What do you think?There are QS-waves in III and aVF.  There is a qR in lead II.  There is minimal STE, upsloping, with T-wave inversion in lead II.  Leads III and aVF only have deep, fairly symmetric T-wave inversion.My interpretation and reply (paraphrase):There is subacute inferior MI and there has probably been prolonged pain.  The initial troponin will be high.  With T-wave inversion, it is possible that the artery has opened, but with subacute MI, the T-wave may be invertedeven with persistent occlusion.  If there is persistent pain...

AbstractWe aimed to identify predictors of late lumen enlargement (LLE) after drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty for de novo coronary lesions. LLE, which is defined as an increase in the luminal diameter of the vessel from the immediate postprocedural measurement to follow-up measurements, is frequently observed after DCB angioplasty for de novo coronary artery disease. No predictors of LLE are known. This retrospective observational study analyzed 196 de novo coronary lesions in 182 patients who underwent both DCB angioplasty and follow-up angiography. Of the 196 lesions, 109 (56%) developed LLE during a mean follow-up...
