The impact of vitrectomy on outcomes achieved with 0.19  mg fluocinolone acetonide implant in patients with diabetic macular edema
CONCLUSIONS: These long-term data suggest that the 0.2 μg/day FAc implant is effective in both vitrectomized and non-vitrectomized patients, with a manageable safety profile, and improved VA and reduced supplemental therapies for patients with a suboptimal response to first-line DME therapies.

Correlation of sectoral choroidal vascularity with angiographic leakage in central serous chorioretinopathy

CONCLUSION: AGV implantation without suture plate fixation or with vicryl suture fixation had a high complication and failure rate, often necessitating reoperation and AGV removal.

Carbohydrate intake and risk of glaucoma in the sun cohort
CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that a higher intake of total carbohydrates is associated with a higher risk of incident glaucoma. The total amount of CH, rather than the specific food sources of CH, seems to play a major role, and this association does not seem to be confounded or modified by diabetic status.PMID:33896221 | DOI:10.1177/11206721211012862 (Source: European Journal of Ophthalmology)

Eye disorders in patients with celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease: A study using clinical data warehouse
CONCLUSIONS: The main ophthalmological manifestations of patients requiring eye follow-up were dry eye and cataract for all the diseases analyzed, which can be considered as coincident complications. None of the three diseases had increased intraocular pressure. Thus, celiac disease presented a profile of ophthalmological manifestation similar to the other intestinal inflammatory diseases studied.PMID:33896218 | DOI:10.1177/11206721211012849 (Source: European Journal of Ophthalmology)

Ahmed glaucoma valve in vitrectomized eyes: An implantation technique to minimize early postoperative fluid-loss hypotony
Eur J Ophthalmol. 2021 Apr 23:11206721211012200. doi: 10.1177/11206721211012200. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: To describe the application of a modified Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) surgical implantation technique in vitrectomized eyes, in order to minimize the risk of early postoperative hypotony, which leads to hemorrhagic complications.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data of patients implanted with AGV using the surgical technique described were retrospectively reviewed. Inclusion criterion: glaucomatous eyes with previous history of pars plana vitrectomy. Intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement and ophthalmic examination ...

Arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy: An update
Eur J Ophthalmol. 2021 Apr 23:11206721211009447. doi: 10.1177/11206721211009447. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIschaemic optic neuropathy (ION) is a major cause of blindness. The clinical approach and management is a matter of debate for the treating neurologist and the ophthalmologist. Of the two broad varieties namely the posterior (PION) and anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (AION), the arteritic variety of the AION (AAION) is usually due to giant cell arteritis. Giant cell arteritis may only present with visual loss in up to 25% of cases. AAION is a neuro-ophthalmic emergency. Early recognition and differentiation fr...

Surgical outcomes of modified capsular tension ring and intraocular lens implantation in Marfan syndrome with ectopia lentis
Eur J Ophthalmol. 2021 Apr 22:11206721211012868. doi: 10.1177/11206721211012868. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: To evaluate surgical outcomes of modified capsular tension ring (MCTR) and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in eyes of Marfan syndrome (MFS).METHODS: This retrospective case series included MFS patients receiving MCTR transscleral fixation and IOL in-the-bag implantation. The MCTR was sutured to the sclera through a sulcus by 9-0 polypropylene with the modified knotless Z-suture technique. Main outcomes were visual acuity and postoperative complications.RESULTS: A total of 109 MFS patients (187 eyes)...
