Morphological changes and potential mechanisms of intraocular pressure reduction after micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation in rabbits

Conclusion: A potential mechanism for IOP reduction in pigmented rabbits is aqueou s humor transport dysfunction due to damage to the nonpigmented epithelial cells of the pars plicata and destruction of basal infoldings. The power of MP-TSCPC was consistent with both morphological changes and IOP reduction.

Abstract PURPOSE: To compare the number of eye surgical procedures performed in Italy during the first month of lockdown with those performed in the same period in 2019. METHODS: Review of the surgical procedures performed from 10 March to 9 April 2019 and from 10 March to 9 April 2020 (the first month of lockdown because of the COVID-19 outbreak) at six academic institutional centers of Italy. A distinction was made between urgent procedures: any trauma repairment, trabeculectomy/drainage implant for glaucoma, any operation for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair, pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for v...

Abstract Non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) is a leading cause of optic nerve-related permanent visual impairment among individuals of over 50 years of age after glaucoma. Because of perplexing disorder regarding its pathogenesis, there is still no widely accepted and established treatment plan. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are one of the rare stem cell types that therapeutic agents for immunomodulation and ischemic tissue repair in clinical practice. However, there are certain disadvantages in using MSCs, such as potential tumorigenicity, need for autologous collection, and short survival t...

We report a case of a 42-year-old male with a history of bilateral congenital cataract surgery performed at 2 years of age. The patient was left with aphakia, secondary glaucoma, and a history of diabetic macular edema in the setting of diabetes mellitus type 1. The right eye became prephthisical from his congenital surgical repair, and his left eye presented with an acute pseudo-endophthalmitis developing after the seventh intravitreal injection to treat the macular edema. The eye then presented with decrease in vision, periocular injection, and a diffuse inflammatory reaction focused around the anterior residual lens cap...

We describe here a case report of a novel technique for tube erosion repair, which modifies and utilizes the commercially available tube extender (Model TE). The modification of the tube extender makes the commercially available tube extender more compact and is useful in cases where conjunctival mobility and space are limited. This debulking of the tube extender may reduce the risk of future tube exposure and dellen formation.

The objective is to start treating chronic diseases from the root and not the symptoms of the disease. As we are starting to enroll patients in "senolytics-clinical trials," it will be imperative to assess if senolysis efficiently targets the primary cause of disease or if it works best in combination with other drugs. Additional basic science research is required to address the fundamental role of senescent cells, especially in the established contexts of disease.
