- Primary angle closure and primary angle closure glaucoma in retinal vein occlusion. [Journal Article]
- AOActa Ophthalmol 2018 Sep 21
- CONCLUSIONS: The overall frequency of PAC/PACG was much higher in patients with RVO (especially CRVO) than that in the general population. Eyes with PAC/PACG may undergo mechanical changes in the lamina cribrosa of the optic disc, resulting in RVO. Angle-closure conditions should be borne in mind when investigating Chinese patients with RVO.
- Persistent metamorphopsia associated with branch retinal vein occlusion. [Journal Article]
- PlosPLoS One 2018; 13(9):e0204015
- CONCLUSIONS: Eyes with branch retinal vein occlusion often have persistent metamorphopsia, even when visual acuity and retinal morphology improve. Metamorphopsia at 12 months was correlated with metamorphopsia and foveal thickness at baseline.

- CONCLUSIONS: In high-quality studies of intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy for RVO, neither industry funding nor journal impact factor affected the rate of outcome reporting bias.

Artificial intelligence is a general term that means to accomplish a task mainly by a computer, with the least human beings participation, and it is widely accepted as the invention of robots. With the development of this new technology, artificial intelligence has been one of the most influential information technology revolutions. We searched these English-language studies relative to ophthalmology published on PubMed and Springer databases. The application of artificial intelligence in ophthalmology mainly concentrates on the diseases with a high incidence, such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinopathy of prematurity, age-related or congenital cataract and few with retinal vein occlusion. According to the above studies, we conclude that the sensitivity of detection and accuracy for proliferative diabetic retinopathy ranged from 75% to 91.7%, for non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy ranged from 75% to 94.7%, for age-related macular degeneration it ranged from 75% to 100%, for retinopathy of prematurity ranged over 95%, for retinal vein occlusion just one study reported ranged over 97%, for glaucoma ranged 63.7% to 93.1%, and for cataract it achieved a more than 70% similarity against clinical grading.
- Comparison of one and three initial monthly intravitreal ranibizumab injection in patients with macular edema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion. [Journal Article]
- IJInt J Ophthalmol 2018; 11(9):1534-1538
- CONCLUSIONS: No significant differences in the anatomical or functional results are found between 3+PRN and 1+PRN regimens in the patients receiving ranibizumab for ME secondary to BRVO. Intact IS/OS and baseline BCVA are good predictor of the visual gain, while baseline CMT is a good predictor of the anatomical gain.

A 9-year-old boy with the diagnosis of Sturge-Weber Syndrome, and port-wine stain involving the right side of the face, presented with acute visual loss of the right eye. Examination revealed a high intraocular pressure and a combined cilioretinal artery and inferior hemi-retinal vein occlusion in the right eye. Systemic work-up was negative. After controlling the intraocular pressure, gradual improvement of vision was noticed with simultaneous disappearance of signs of vascular occlusion.

Angiopoietin-like protein 4 is a multifunctional cytokine regulating vascular permeability, angiogenesis, and inflammation. Dysregulations on these responses contribute to the pathogenesis of ischemic retinopathies such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion and sickle cell retinopathy. However, the role of ANGPTL4 in these diseases remains controversial. Here, we summarize the functional mechanisms of ANGPTL4 in several diseases. We highlight original studies that provide detailed data about the mechanisms of action for ANGPTL4, its applications as a diagnostic or prognostic biomarker, and its use as a potential therapeutic target. Taken together, the discussions in this review will help us gain a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms by which ANGPTL4 functions in eye disease and will provide directions for future research.

- OSOphthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Sep 01; 49(9):e9-e19
- CONCLUSIONS: The SSADA OCT angiography analysis has a low level of variability between measurements and, thus, is a reliable tool for evaluation of retinal perfusion. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2018;49:e9-e19.].

- Secondary Ocular Hypertension and the Risk of Glaucoma Surgery After Dexamethasone Intravitreal Implant in Routine Clinical Practice. [Journal Article]
- OSOphthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Sep 01; 49(9):680-685
- CONCLUSIONS: Secondary OHT induced by the dexamethasone implant can usually be controlled by medications, but the incidence of OHT requiring glaucoma surgery was high (4.62%) in our study relative to rates previously reported in the literature. All patients, especially those with preexisting glaucoma, should be advised of the possible need for glaucoma surgery prior to undergoing treatment with the dexamethasone implant.
