- Pupilloplasty by radiofrequency diathermy. [Case Reports]Acta Ophthalmol 2019; 97(3):e479-e481AO
- CONCLUSIONS: We introduced a new technique of pupilloplasty by RFD that is easily manageable, reduces bleeding, and is suitable for most types of pupillary seclusion, especially for acorea and severe pupillary fibrous membrane.
- Adjunctive steroid therapy versus antibiotics alone for acute endophthalmitis after intraocular procedure. [Review]Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2017; 2:CD012131CD
- CONCLUSIONS: Current evidence on the effectiveness of adjunctive steroid therapy versus antibiotics alone in the management of acute endophthalmitis after intraocular surgery is inadequate. We found no studies that had enrolled cases of acute endophthalmitis following intravitreous injection. A combined analysis of two studies suggests adjunctive steroids may provide a higher probability of having a good visual outcome at three months than not using adjunctive steroids. However, considering that most of the confidence intervals crossed the null and that this review was limited in scope and applicability to clinical practice, it is not possible to conclude whether the use adjunctive steroids is effective at this time. Any future trials should examine whether adjunctive steroids may be useful in certain clinical settings such as type of causative organism or etiology. These studies should include outcomes that take patient's symptoms and clinical examination into account, report outcomes in a uniform and consistent manner, and follow up at short- and long-term intervals.
- Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis-Related Uveitis: Different Ophthalmological Manifestations and Ocular Inflammation Features. [Journal Article]Semin Ophthalmol 2017; 32(6):715-720SO
- CONCLUSIONS: Uveitis in patients with psoriasis and PsA may have distinguishing clinical features. PsA patients have more ocular complications than those with psoriasis. Both groups need an ophthalmological examination to promptly detect ocular co-morbidity.
- Simultaneous bilateral retinal detachment following coronary artery bypass graft: case report. [Case Reports]Eur J Ophthalmol 2007 Sep-Oct; 17(5):860-3EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: The cause for simultaneous bilateral RD remained unclear. It may have been a consequence of a persistent choroidal detachment with multiple swelling and 'kissing' of retinal surface. The increased venous pressure caused by congestive heart failure due to AMI could have caused a bilateral uveal effusion. Alternatively, the absence of retinal tears, the presence of a closed funnel-shaped morphology, and seclusion of the pupils allowed us to suspect an exudative pathogenetic mechanism due to a previous unrecognized ocular inflammatory state.
- Fibrous congenital iris membranes with pupillary distortion. [Case Reports]Trans Am Ophthalmol Soc 2001; 99:45-50; discussion 50-1TA
- CONCLUSIONS: This type of fibrous congenital iris membrane is important to recognize because of its impact on vision and its tendency to progress toward pupillary occlusion. Timely surgical intervention can abort this progressive course and allow vision to be preserved.
- Tissue plasminogen activator to treat impending pupillary block glaucoma in patients with acute fibrinous HLA-B27 positive iridocyclitis. [Case Reports]Am J Ophthalmol 2000; 129(3):363-6AJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Intracameral tissue plasminogen activator is a safe and effective agent for patients with severe acute iridocyclitis and pupillary seclusion. Patients with clinical signs suggestive of impending pupillary block glaucoma may be considered for tissue plasminogen activator injection to avoid the possible need for emergency surgical iridectomy and synechiolysis.
- Iris retraction syndrome after intraocular surgery. [Case Reports]Ophthalmology 1995; 102(1):98-100O
- CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative uveitis that occurs with iris retraction and pupillary seclusion should alert the physician of an occult retinal detachment and warrant a thorough dilated funduscopic examination. Features unique to this report include the development of iris retraction syndrome in the presence of a pseudophakos, the rapidity of onset of this disorder after retinal detachment, and its masquerade as a persistent postoperative uveitis.
- [Combined use of ultrasound and radiodiagnostic methods in the diagnosis of posterior dislocation of the lens]. [Case Reports]Cesk Oftalmol 1990; 46(1):9-13CO
- In a case record the authors present an account on a patient with an opaque media of the left eye on account of seclusion and occlusion of the pupil. The cause of the unilateral chronic uveitis was elucidated by ultrasonic examination with visualization type A. The cause was a calcified lens dislocated into the vitreous body and fixed to the posterior wall of the eye. The finding was confirmed by…
In a case record the authors present an account on a patient with an opaque media of the left eye on account of seclusion and occlusion of the pupil. The cause of the unilateral chronic uveitis was elucidated by ultrasonic examination with visualization type A. The cause was a calcified lens dislocated into the vitreous body and fixed to the posterior wall of the eye. The finding was confirmed by a negative X-ray picture and positive finding of a small foreign body with high density on CT. Dislocation of the lens occurred after a blow on the left eye during boxing 15 years before the patient sought medical assistance on account of a painful practically blind eyeball.
- Iris retraction associated with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment syndrome and hypotony. A new explanation. [Case Reports]Arch Ophthalmol 1984; 102(10):1457-63AO
- Eyes with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment can occasionally be seen with hypotony and a peculiar retraction of the peripheral iris. Herein I report the following new observations in this syndrome: (1) seclusion of the pupil, (2) resolution of the retraction configuration after disruption of the seclusion, (3) the initial manifestation as angle closure secondary to iris bombé interchangeable with…
Eyes with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment can occasionally be seen with hypotony and a peculiar retraction of the peripheral iris. Herein I report the following new observations in this syndrome: (1) seclusion of the pupil, (2) resolution of the retraction configuration after disruption of the seclusion, (3) the initial manifestation as angle closure secondary to iris bombé interchangeable with the iris retraction configuration with the addition (to bombé) and the withdrawal (from retraction) of pharmacologic aqueous suppressants, and (4) the rapid cataract formation. The theory that vitreous traction or retraction is the cause of the retrodisplacement of the iris was disproved. A hydrodynamic theory is presented. A lowering of pressure behind the iris, at least partially, due to posterior removal of fluid, presumably from the subretinal space, was shown to be the cause of the iris retraction. The iris retrodisplacement occurred when posterior aqueous removal exceeded aqueous formation. This removal of fluid may be an important factor in the understanding of proliferative vitreoretinopathy as the fluid flow involved may draw cells posteriorly.
