[Diagnosis of Kayser Fleischer Ring: Can Early Diagnosis Improve the Outcome of Wilson's Disease?]
Authors: Bigdon E, Feuerstacke J, Steinhorst NA, Spitzer M Abstract Wilson's disease is a rare genetic disease of copper metabolism that leads to increased accumulation of copper in the body. Deposits are found mainly in the liver, brain and eye. If left untreated, the disease can lead to movement disorders, personality changes, liver failure and even death. There are many possible differential diagnoses. Diagnosis can only be made through specific test procedures. The ophthalmologist therefore has a special role in the early detection of a Wilson's disease. In our clinic, a 19-year old female patient presented wit...

CONCLUSIONS: In this case series, photorefractive keratotomy was shown to be an effective treatment method for secondary ametropia after radial keratotomy. Apart from the correct planning and execution of the PRK, it is of critical importance to inform the patients about the limitations and the anticipated refractive result of the procedure.

CONCLUSION: Our study confirms that advanced age alone is not a contraindication for a cataract operation and is not associated with a greater rate of intraoperative complications. Cataract operations on very old patients are generally successful, but should be undertaken early - particularly on multimorbid patients or those with dementia - in order to support the psychological status. The age of the patient is irrelevant. PMID: 31266075 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

CONCLUSIONS: Since 2006, a structured curriculum has existed for the training of medical specialists in ophthalmology at the Eye Center Freiburg. This is well documented on the homepage as well as in the internal quality management manual. The transparency, paired with the quality of the training program, leads to an increasing number of employees as well as the number of employees with specialist medical qualifications. This can be seen as an indicator for a successful curriculum which secures medical care and research.

For dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and the later stage of geographic atrophy (GA), various treatment options exist that only decelerate the progression of the disease. However, no therapy is currently available that can restore the degenerated retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and/or photoreceptor cells. Cellular and gene-based approaches aim for the regeneration of the degenerated cells and/or the cont...

In order to improve patient eye health and relieve the burden on health systems, the development of new intervention options appears to be of great importance if they can delay or even prevent the progression of an early form into a late form. In the field of physical treatment for non-exudative AMD, there is no recognised therapy procedure to date. It now appears approp...

Authors: Luebke J, Maier PC Abstract Measuring the intraocular pressure in eyes with corneal diseases or after corneal interventions often results in false values due to abnormal corneal biomechanics. Many different approaches are used to compensate for these abnormal corneal biomechanic properties, with varying measuring methods. There are differences when these alternative measuring methods are compared to the gold standard, applanation tonometry according to Goldmann. These differences vary between the methods and with different corneal changes. There is no clear recommendation on a precise method that is suitab...

Phenotypically, it cannot be distinguished from true mucous membrane pemphigoid with ocular involvement. Possible triggers are ocular surface disorders and/or their therapy. About 50% of all affected patients are glaucoma patients treated with topical antiglaucomatous therapy. Lack of signs of systemic disease, unilateral findings and/or a positive history of glaucoma may be indicative of a pseudopemphigoid. In this review, the two entities will be compared and the ...

[Peri-/postoperative Antiinflammation Therapy after Cataract and Refractive Surgery].
Authors: Lwowski CM, de Robaulx AC, Kohnen T Abstract Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgery worldwide, and refractive surgery is gaining more and more popularity. Although they are rare, some possible complications of these procedures remain relevant for surgeons and patients. Macular edema in cataract surgery and sterile infections of the cornea after refractive corneal surgery can lower the visual outcome significantly. Such complications can occur due to activation of inflammation cascades as a result of local tissue manipulation during the surgery. Even though the incidence is very low, ther...

Authors: Dietlein TS, Erb C, Hoffmann E Abstract Many clinical studies have demonstrated the benefit of topical anti-inflammatory medication before and after glaucoma surgery, especially for trabeculectomy, and that they improve the long term outcome. Pre- and postoperative topical steroids improve the outcome of trabeculectomy, but duration and intensity of treatment should be adapted individually. Systemic steroid or oral immunomodulation have significant impact on the outcome in uveitic glaucoma, but not in other glaucoma subtypes. Additional topical treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatories is an option ...

Inflammatory reactions after surgical interventions distant from the vascularised limbus and without opening of the anterior chamber of the eye are usually very muted, because of the corneal immune and angiogenic privilege. A milestone in the therapy and prophylaxis of inflammation after corneal surgery has been the use of topical glucocorticoids since the 1950s. When these are used, it is...

Authors: Feltgen N, Agostini H, Lommatzsch AP, Schaub F, Hoerauf H Abstract The perioperative treatment of retinal surgery with anti-inflammatory drugs is an everyday procedure for ophthalmologists in Germany. Nevertheless, little data are available to investigate the efficacy of vitreoretinal surgery. Treatment is usually analogous to procedures on the anterior segment of the eye, for which much more robust data are available. In this article, the relevant clinical questions will be answered and, when possible, documented with study data.

[Second Survey on Patient-centred Care of Ocular Graft-versus-Host Disease in Germany].
CONCLUSIONS: Due to the potential severity of ocular GvHD with immobilisation of the patients and the imminent loss of sight, further improvements in eye care are required. For example, offers such as special consultations, with expertise located close to any transplantation unit are recommended. This requires in particular ophthalmologists to participate in the patient care to enhance quality of life after allo-SCT. In summary, we conclude that the present structures are not sufficient to treat all patients suffering from ocular GvHD in Germany, but the situation has evidently improved.

However, in eyes with previous trabeculectomy or implantation of a glaucoma drainage device, this surgical technique, where the diseased Descemet's membrane and endothelium are replaced by a lamella of donor Descemet's membrane and endothelium, may have some limitations.

CONCLUSION: All three CS tests could be usefully applied in the clinic in adults as well as children over the age of 4 years. Only the CSV 1000E exhibited neither a ceiling nor a floor effect. This was also the fastest test. In children with amblyopia, CS testing offers additional information on visual function.
