Retinal detachment with subretinal and vitreous hemorrhages causing secondary angle closure glaucoma diagnosed with ultrasound

A 90-year-old female with a past medical history of trigeminal neuralgia and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) presented with a four-day history of a left-sided headache, nausea, and vomiting. Regarding her left eye, she reported intermittent flashes of light over the past month and complete vision loss for four days.

CONCLUSIONS: VIS was feasible in clinical routine. Compared to the other evaluated blocks, the VIS for the infragluteal access to the sciatic nerve was rated worst. VIS is found to be worse in obese patients. Further research is needed to evaluate VIS and its suitability for specific questions as for instance anesthetists' learning curves, comparison of different patient populations, ultrasound devices or different nerve blocks.

In this study, 1452 patients were enrolled. Independent risk factors for recurrence-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS) were analyzed for patients with and without CSPH. For HCC patients without CSPH, multivariate analysis suggested that microvascular invasion (MVI), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) ≥ 3, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) ≥ 150, tumor size> 5 cm, and the presence of a satellite lesion were independently associated with RFS. MVI, NLR ≥ 3, PLR ≥ 150, and advanced Barcelona clinical liver cancer (BCLC) stage contributed to mortality. However, neither NLR nor PLR showed any prognos...
