Interdisciplinary interaction for vascular diseases of the eye : Neurological differential diagnosis.

CONCLUSION: Vascular diseases of the eye are frequently associated with cerebrovascular disease. A comprehensive vascular evaluation can contribute to prevention of stroke. PMID: 24448810 [PubMed - in process]

In conclusion, this is the first study to show a beneficial in vivo effect of U0126 on vascular contractility following ischemia in the ophthalmic artery. Coupled with the knowledge obtained from cerebral vasculature, these results point towards a novel therapeutic approach following ischemia-related injuries to the eye.

By ANISH KOKA Part 1 Part 2 Physicians have been making up numbers longer than people have been guessing weights at carnivals.  How much does this statin lower the chances of a heart attack? How long do I have to live if I don’t get the aortic valve surgery? In clinics across the land confident answers emerge from doctors in white coats.  Most of the answers are guesses based on whatever evidence about the matter exists applied to the patient sitting in the room.  The trouble is that the evidence base used to be the provenance of experts and anecdotes that have in the past concluded leeches were good f...

Authors: Bidot S, Biotti D Abstract Transient monocular blindness is an acute episode of ischemic origin in which one eye has profound visual loss, followed by full recovery within one hour. Transient monocular blindness most often occurs in the setting of retinal ischemia secondary to carotid embolism, but other mechanisms have been reported, including thrombosis (most often in the setting of giant cell arteritis), hemodynamic disorders (secondary to severe carotid stenosis) or vasospasm. Transient monocular blindness is considered a transient ischemic attack originating in the carotid arteries and must benefit fr...

Air-powered rifles shoot ball bearings with enough kinetic energy to penetrate skin and fracture underlying bones. In addition, there are reports of these ball bearings embolizing within the vascular network, causing serious injuries such as ischemic stroke with resultant blindness. The severity of these complications warrants occasional removal of these foreign bodies; however, they can be difficult to localize. In this case report, we describe the use of a magnetic port finder, a sterilizable tool used in breast reconstruction, to localize the foreign body in situ.

We report a case of acute ischemic stroke following orthopedic surgery in a patient with post-SAE reactive thrombocytosis. Patient concerns: A 37-year-old woman with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) suffered from multiple trauma scheduled for open reduction and internal fixation for right tibial and left radius fracture five days after SAE. The patient did not have any thromboembolic complications, although the platelet counts increased from 43 × 109/L to 568 × 109/L within two days after SAE. Surgery was completed under general anesthesia with tracheal intubation without complications. The ...

Conclusions:In our case series, no patient without early recanalization of the CRA had ECI. Further studies are merited to determine the impact of CRA recanalization timing and, furthermore, whether fibrinolytic therapy is associated with improved CRA recanalization rates and long-term visual acuity in CRAO patients.Disclosure: Dr. Alkuwaiti has nothing to disclose.
