Prevalence and risk factors of dry eye in 79,866 participants of the population-based Lifelines cohort study in the Netherlands.
CONCLUSIONS: This study on dry eye confirmed but also refuted many risk factors from smaller epidemiological studies, and discovered numerous new risk factors in multiple etiological categories. The finding that dry eye symptoms are particularly common in young adults is concerning, and warrants further study. PMID: 32376389 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Weynandt CL, Kowski A, Perka C, Rakow A Abstract Iatrogenic nerve injuries are rare complications of total hip and knee arthroplasty, which may cause chronic pain and loss of function, severely affecting the patient's daily activities and quality of life. Nerves "at risk" include the sciatic nerve, the femoral nerve, the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve and the superior gluteal nerve during total hip arthroplasty, and the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve as well as the peroneal nerve during total knee arthroplasty. Multiple procedure-related and patient-related factors have been identif...
Conclusion: Pediatric endogenous bacterial endophthalmitis is a rare but potentially devastating infection which is often misdiagnosed. Moreover, we want to highlight the importance of an adequate clinical suspicion in cases of H. influenzae to prevent the serious complications seen in this report.

CONCLUSIONS: There are several management choices for IOL dislocation which should take into account the degree of uveitis, patient age and expectations. We present a pragmatic approach: surgery can often be avoided in this high-risk group. PMID: 32643989 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Majority had noninfectious etiologies. Uveitis associated with juvenile idiopathic arthritis was rare. PMID: 32643984 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Liu G, Li Y, Gao L Abstract With modern technology and peri-op antibiotic use, postoperative endophthalmitis is uncommon to modern cataract surgery, and its recurrence even more unusual. Enterococcal faecalis endophthalmitis is an acute type of endophthalmitis that is not only rare, but can be recurrent, and has a poor functional prognosis . Since the disease is refractory to conventional therapy, this paper details our experience with treating the disease given the current lack of standard care both medically and surgically.

CONCLUSION: Patients with thyroid disease were found to have a higher risk for uveitis. For certain age groups or patients without diabetes or hypertension, the role of thyroid disease might be more crucial for uveitis development. PMID: 32643974 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
