  • The use of autologous serum eye drops for the treatment of ocular surface disorders. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Hosp Pharm 2019; 26(6):314-317García-Martín E, Pernía-López S, … Sanjurjo-Saez M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Numerous national and international guidelines on dry eye treatment have been published, but they differ in dosing, concentration and indication of AS eye drops. Consequently, there is no consensus about the best therapy with AS. In this article we describe the clinical practice of AS eye drops. In the study, indications for AS therapy were mostly: corneal diseases; Sjögren syndrome; and dry eye resulting from autoimmune disease; and blepharitis or blepharospasm. Patients went to the hospital pharmacy to pick up AS eye drops before 90 days, it ensures the stability of eye drops. AS is an effective, safe and well tolerated treatment.
  • Structural brain network fingerprints of focal dystonia. [Journal Article]
    Ther Adv Neurol Disord 2019; 12:1756286419880664Chirumamilla VC, Dresel C, … Groppa S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that BSP patients display alterations in both segregation and integration in the brain at the network level. The regional differences identified in the sensorimotor cortex and cerebellum of these patients may play a role in the pathophysiology of focal dystonia. Moreover, symptomatic reduction of hyperkinesia by BoNT treatment was associated with different brain network fingerprints in both BSP and HFS patients.
  • Association between cannabis and the eyelids: A comprehensive review. [Review]
    Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2019Nguyen AX, Wu AY
  • Cannabis is the most consumed illicit drug worldwide. As more countries consider bills that would legalize adult use of cannabis, health care providers, including eye care professionals (ophthalmologists, optometrists), will need to recognize ocular effects of cannabis consumption in patients. There are only 20 studies on the eyelid effects of cannabis usage as a medical treatment or a recreation…
  • GeneReviews®: Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6 [BOOK]
    University of Washington, Seattle: Seattle (WA)Adam MP, Ardinger HH, … Amemiya ACasey HL, Gomez CMBOOK
  • Spinocerebellar ataxia type 6 (SCA6) is characterized by adult-onset, slowly progressive cerebellar ataxia, dysarthria, and nystagmus. The age of onset ranges from 19 to 73 years; mean age of onset is between 43 and 52 years. Initial symptoms are gait unsteadiness, stumbling, and imbalance (in ~90%) and dysarthria (in ~10%). Eventually all persons have gait ataxia, upper-limb incoordination, inte…
  • Efficacy and Safety of Long-Term Therapy with Type A Botulinum Toxin in Patients with Blepharospasm. [Journal Article]
    Neuroophthalmology 2019; 43(5):277-283Vivancos-Matellano F, Rodríguez-Sanz A, … Mascías-Cadavid J
  • Blepharospasm (BPS) is one of the most frequent types of facial dystonia and, at the same time, one of the most disabling, being able to trigger functional blindness if not treated. Our aim with this work was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of long-term onabotulinum A toxin (BAT) treatment in a cohort of patients with BPS. The retrospective study was conducted on consecutive patients with BPS…
  • Dry eye syndrome in benign essential blepharospasm. [Journal Article]
    J Fr Ophtalmol 2019; 42(10):1062-1067Girard BC, Lévy P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dry-eye syndrome and benign essential blepharospasm are strongly linked, independently of age, sex or BEB severity, and should be considered for the diagnosis of benign essential blepharospasm. The useful symptomatic treatment of dry eye will not cure the blepharospasm or the ocular pain, and specific treatment for blepharospasm is required, i.e., quarterly injections of botulinum toxin A into the orbicularis oculi muscle.
