Long-term effects of phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in a patient with pathologic myopia and extremely long axial length: A case report

Rationale: To report a rare case of phacoemulsification cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation that improved visual acuity and capsular stability in a patient with pathologic myopia and axial length>38 mm. Patient concerns: A 51-year-old Chinese man with high myopia since childhood who had lost sight in his left eye at the age of 25 due to retinal detachment. He was referred for ophthalmological assessment due to decreased vision in the right eye, in which the best-corrected visual acuity at distance was hand motion. Diagnoses: The patient was diagnosed with cataract, high myopia, subluxated lens, and loose zonules in the right eye. The left eyeball showed atrophy. Interventions: The patient underwent uneventful phacoemulsification. An intraocular lens (Sensar AR40M) and capsular tension ring were implanted within the capsular bag. After surgery, the patient was given eye drops containing tobramycin and dexamethasone eye drops for 1 month and eye drops containing 0.1% sodium diclofenac for 2 months. Outcomes: There were no postoperative complications. During 1-year follow-up, uncorrected visual acuity was 20/80 and the manifest refraction was −2.50DS/−1.00DC∗80, with corrected distance visual acuity of 20/60. Cataract surgery maintained adequate vision for daily living. Lessons: Implantation of specific lens and capsular tension ring as well as prolonged use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may help prevent capsular...

Authors: Zhang W, Xu JZ, Lu XH, Li H, Wang D, Wang JG Abstract PURPOSE: We hypothesise that dietary sodium intake interacts with serum uric acid to influence blood pressure (BP) in children and adolescents. In the present study, we investigated ambulatory BP in relation to hyperuricaemia, dietary sodium intake and their interaction in children and adolescents with hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  A total of 616 study participants were 10-24 years old and had primary hypertension diagnosed after admission in a specialised inpatient ward. Ambulatory BP monitoring was performed during hospitalisat...

This study therefore investigated the impacts of RRCC on air pollution based on detailed household heating data obtained from intensive face-to-face interviews in Shandong province, China. The total contributions and specific contributions of coal, stoves, and coal-stove combinations to air pollution were simulated using the WRF-CAMx-PSAT model. The RRCC for heating had a considerable impact on air pollution, contributing 36.1, 9.1, and 16.1% of atmospheric SO2, NOx, and PM2.5 in winter, respectively. Different coal-stove combinations had different impacts on air pollution and mitigation efficiencies. The combination of bi...

Abstract Limited studies focus on the occurrence, removal rate and seasonal variation of substituted diphenylamine antioxidants (SDPAs) in surface water and wastewater in China. In this paper, the detection method of SDPAs was established by the ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Daily variations suggested that significant variations were found for the concentrations of some SDPAs in the influent. It was found that the SDPAs could be detected in all the effluent samples and C8/C8-DPA was the predominant compound in two WWTPs. The levels of most SDPAs in the effluent were much lower t...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate the efficacy and safety of bencycloquidium bromide nasal spray (BCQB) in patients with persistent allergic rhinitis (PAR).MethodsWe enrolled 720 patients from 15 hospitals across China and randomly assigned them into BCQB group or placebo group (90  μg per nostril qid) to receive a 4-week treatment. Visual analog scale (VAS) for rhinorrhea, sneezing, nasal congestion, itching and overall symptoms were recorded by patients every day. Anterior rhinoscopy scoring was completed by doctors on every visit. Adverse events were recorded in detail.ResultsA total of 354 and 351 patients were inc...
