Survey of Rejection Prophylaxis Following Suture Removal in Penetrating Keratoplasty in Germany
DISCUSSION: Rejection prophylaxis following PK is currently poorly standardised and not evidence-based. All included centres perform medical aftercare following suture removal. It is assumed that different treatment strategies show different cost-benefit ratios. In the face of the diversity, a systematic analysis is required to develop an optimised regimen for all patients.PMID:33634457 | DOI:10.1055/a-1353-6149 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Histologic Findings of Choroidal Vasculopathy in Eyes Enucleated following Radiation Therapy for Uveal Melanoma: Radiation Choroidopathy
CONCLUSION: Irradiation of malignant tumors of the eye causes not only radiation retinopathy but also radiation choroidopathy. The role of radiation choroidopathy in the subsequent visual loss following radiotherapy and the role of anti-VEGF therapy needs to be recognized and distinguished from radiation retinopathy. Our data adds to the prior limited knowledge that radiation affects the choroid and can induce specific phenotypes similar to the clinical spectrum of CNV, PCV, and RAP.PMID:33618386 | DOI:10.1055/a-1275-0626 (Source: Klinische Monatsblatter fur Augenheilkunde)

Serum Selenium Levels in Glaucoma: a Pilot Study.
CONCLUSION: The serum Se level of the German cohort was almost half of those of the published US cohort (glaucoma 209.11 ng/mL; control 194.45 ng/mL). Age and gender effects were observed; the serum Se level increased with age in women (controls and POAG), however, Se levels decreased with age in men (controls and POAG).

CONCLUSIONS: HSK is a prevalent disease with severe consequences when not treated appropriately and on time. Even when making an accurate diagnosis, the disease can be extremely aggressive, with all the implications it brings to the patients and health system. Elective PKP had better outcomes in terms of visual acuity and clear graft percentage compared to emergency PKP.

Incidence of Retinal Detachment after Macular Surgery.
In this study we included all patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy (ppV, 20 or 25 gauge) in the years 2009 - 2016. We then identified the patients who were hospitalised again because of retinal detachment. For the affected patients, the rate of retinal detachment, functional outcomes and possible risk factors were recorded. A total of 904 eyes were identified, of which 667 had surgery for epiretinal membrane, 188 for macular hole, and 49 for vitreomacular traction with a 20 or 25 gauge ppV. Of these 904, retinal detachment occurred in 17 (1.88%) cases. The mean time between first ppV and second ppV with re...

Clinical Course and Treatment Paradigms for JIA-related Uveitis and Pars Planitis Uveitis Using Precise Ocular Investigational Methods.
CONCLUSION: Nowadays, new investigational techniques have made precise follow-up of uveitis possible. We determined the precise inflammatory pattern of JIA uveitis and PP, which is crucial information to determine the therapeutic intervention. As these two entities are common in young and paediatric patients, such precise monitoring is essential to determine adequate treatment paradigms and avoid unnecessary systemic treatment, especially corticosteroids. When the ophthalmic status requires it, multidisciplinary collaboration between the ophthalmologist, the paediatrician and the rheumatologist may be needed to offer optim...

Successful Regression in Patients with Progressive Keratoconus by Corneal Crosslinking.
Authors: Röck T, Konrad EM, Röck D, Bramkamp M, Blumenstock G, Bartz-Schmidt KU Abstract BACKGROUND: Since 2019, corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) is included in the catalog of procedures covered by statutory health insurance in Germany. CXL is an established ophthalmological procedure for the last 20 years. The aim of this investigation was the measurement of progression before and after CXL. MATERIAL UND METHODS: 65 consecutive eyes with progressive keratoconus from 53 patients were included in the retrospective study, which were observed at the University Eye Hospital Tübingen at least two y...

[Echography].
Authors: Fiorentzis M, Foerster AM, Rating P, Bechrakis NE Abstract Echography (also ultrasound) is a clinical, non-invasive imaging module that is used for the measurement of the axial length of the eye and for the investigation of pathologic entities of the chamber angle, the iris and the ciliary body. Furthermore, its role in the management of vitreoretinal pathologies and the differentiation of intraocular tumors is indisputable. Echography remains the first-choice imaging tool in case of insufficient visualization of the posterior segment due to opacity or obstruction of the optical media of the eye. In additi...

Authors: von Livonius B, Emminger R, Ring-Mangold T Abstract In times of unlimited availability of exchange lenses on the internet and in discount stores, the contact lens has increasingly become a lifestyle but also a disposable product. The targeted marketing of the contact lens as a mass product could only be realized because the fitting and application of the contact lenses are presented as very simple. The numbers of contact lens-induced complications, as well as the fact that the German market in particular has not seen any increase in the number of contact lens wearers in recent years (2015 to 2019), however...
