- Radiobiological doses, tumor, and treatment features influence on outcomes after epiescleral brachytherapy. A 20-year retrospective analysis from a single-institution: part II. [Journal Article]
- JCJ Contemp Brachytherapy 2018; 10(4):347-359
- CONCLUSIONS: Tumor factors in addition to radiation treatment may contribute to secondary effects. Enhanced clinical optimization should evaluate radiobiological doses delivered to the tumor volume and surrounding normal ocular structures.
- Early Retinal Findings Following Cooling in Neonatal Encephalopathy. [Journal Article]

- CONCLUSIONS: Frequency of IOH is high in newborns with NE who underwent TH being independent from severity of MRS-MRI findings, aEEG pattern, and disturbed coagulation status.

- JOJ Ophthalmol 2018; 2018:3212740
- CONCLUSIONS: Since refractive error induced is minimal, the procedure is suitable for IOL implantation in children, who are noncompliant with spectacles. The complication profile is similar to that reported in adults.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the most important types of diabetic microangiopathy, which is a specific change of fundus lesions and is one of the most serious complications of diabetes. When DR develops to proliferative DR, the main factors of decreasing vision, and even blindness, include retinal detachment and vitreous hemorrhage caused by contraction of blood vessels by fiber membrane. Recent studies reported that the formation of fiber vascular membrane is closely related to retinal fibrosis. The connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) is a cytokine that is closely related to DR fibrosis. However, its mechanism is poorly understood. This paper summarizes the recent studies about CTGF on DR fibrosis for a comprehensive understanding of the role and mechanism of CTGF in PDR.
- Displacement of crystalline lens into the sub-conjunctival space following periocular anesthesia. [Journal Article]

A 65-year-old female presented with loss of vision and a mass in her right eye after periocular anaesthesia for cataract surgery in a camp. She was found to have a nasal subconjunctival mass, which was confirmed to contain the crystalline lens after surgical exploration, along with a superior perilimbal suspected scleral rupture. There was accompanying vitreous haemorrhage, retinal detachment and subretinal haemorrhage that was managed by pars plana vitrectomy. Post operatively, she achieved a best corrected visual acuity of 20/80 that was maintained till 6 months follow up. Globe rupture and subconjunctival lens extrusion in the setting of inadvertent globe penetration during periocular anesthesia is a rare complication. In the absence of medical records pertaining to the primary event, this clinical presentation posed a diagnostic challenge. Timely and appropriate management led to an acceptable visual and anatomical outcome in this unfortunate and devastating scenario.
- Peripheral Persistent Fetal Vasculature: A Report of Three Cases. [Journal Article]

The authors report three cases of persistent fetal vasculature (PFV) presenting with an atypical peripheral fibrovascular stalk. A 5-month-old with congenital exotropia with a vitreous hemorrhage in the right eye underwent vitrectomy, and a mid-peripheral vitreal vascular stalk was visualized within the area of hemorrhage. The second case is of an 8-year-old with two fetal vascular remnants in the right eye: (1) a stalk superotemporally extending from the pars plana to the mid-peripheral retina that was associated with a retinal break and (2) a focal lens opacity. The third case is a 12-year-old with a history of familial exudative vitreoretinopathy and peripapillary choroidal neovascular membrane found to have a peripheral vitreal stalk in the right eye. These cases demonstrate a rare form of PFV with primarily peripheral remnants. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2018;49:e83-e88.].
- The Correlation of Pars Plana Incision and Transient Hypotony After Silicone Oil Removal. [Journal Article]
- OSOphthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Sep 01; 49(9):e44-e51
- CONCLUSIONS: Pars plana incision is the crucial cause of ciliary detachment and consequent transient hypotony after silicone oil removal. Using corneal limbus incision in patients with aphakic eyes to avoid the par plana incision is expected to reduce the incidence of hypotony with minimal complications. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2018;49:e44-e51.].
- A novel missense mutation in BEST1 associated with an autosomal-dominant vitreoretinochoroidopathy (ADVIRC) phenotype. [Journal Article]
- OGOphthalmic Genet 2018 Sep 17; :1-5
- CONCLUSIONS: We present a patient with a novel p.Met571Thr pathogenic variation associated with an ADVIRC phenotype. SRH is a unique finding in ADVIRC patients and may correspond to peripheral exudative hemorrhagic chorioretinopathy. The BEST1 pathogenic variation p.Met571Thr might be the likely cause of ADVIRC in this patient. However, further study is necessary to determine whether this mutation is causative.
- OPHTHALMIC VASCULAR EVENTS AFTER INTRA-ARTERIAL CHEMOTHERAPY FOR RETINOBLASTOMA: Real-World Comparison Between Primary and Secondary Treatments. [Journal Article]
- RRetina 2018 Sep 07
- CONCLUSIONS: Ophthalmic vascular events after IAC for retinoblastoma affect only 5% of eyes per infusion (17% of treated eyes). Vascular event risk per eye is similar when using IAC as primary or secondary treatment.
