621. Practice parameter: prediction of outcome in comatose survivors after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (an evidence-based review): report of the Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology. (PubMed)

authors identified four class I studies, three class II studies, and five class III studies on clinical findings and circumstances. The indicators of poor outcome after CPR are absent pupillary light response or corneal reflexes, and extensor or no motor response to pain after 3 days of observation (level A), and myoclonus status epilepticus (level B). Prognosis cannot be based on circumstances of CPR (level B) or elevated body temperature (level C). The authors identified one class I, one class II (...) (level B). Ten class IV studies on brain monitoring and neuroimaging did not provide data to support or refute usefulness in prognostication (level U).Pupillary light response, corneal reflexes, motor responses to pain, myoclonus status epilepticus, serum neuron-specific enolase, and somatosensory evoked potential studies can reliably assist in accurately predicting poor outcome in comatose patients after cardiopulmonary resuscitation for cardiac arrest.

institution.Chart review of patients who underwent super maximum levator resection with or without superior tarsectomy. Data regarding eyelid position, surgical outcome, and postoperative complications were evaluated.Margin reflex distance-1 (distance [mm] between corneal light reflex and upper eyelid margin), bilateral eyelid symmetry, and postoperative complications.A statistically significant improvement in ptosis correction was demonstrated when integrating the superior tarsectomy with the super maximum (...) levator resection (P = 0.029). In addition, the superior tarsectomy significantly decreased the incidence of undercorrection (margin reflex distance-1 values less than 2.0 mm) compared with the super-maximum levator resection alone (12.5% vs. 70%; P = 0.023). Improved postoperative eyelid symmetry within 1.0 and 1.5 mm was demonstrated in cases treated by the superior tarsectomy. Postoperative complications were similar in both treatments.The super maximum levator resection combined with superior

624. Abnormal foveal avascular zone in nanophthalmos. (PubMed)

Abnormal foveal avascular zone in nanophthalmos. To evaluate the foveas of nanophthalmic patients.Retrospective observational case series.Four nanophthalmic patients examined between April 2005 and April 2006 were included. Visual acuity (VA), refractive correction, axial length, corneal diameter, presence or lack of foveal light reflex, as well as fluorescein angiograms (FAs), and optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans of the maculae were evaluated.None of the eight eyes had a foveal light (...) reflex, corresponding to lack of a normal foveal pit on OCT. Fluorescein angiography showed no normal foveal avascular zones; all were either completely absent or small and rudimentary.Nanophthalmic patients rarely have best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) better than 20/40 at any point in their lives, even with an absence of known complications, such as uveal effusion or glaucoma. In many patients, this visual deficiency may correspond to an absent or rudimentary foveal avascular zone and lack

to evaluate the technique.Prospective noncomparative surgical trial in which preoperative and postoperative symptoms, margin reflex distances, vertical palpebral aperture (PA), lagophthalmos, and corneal findings were recorded. The data were analyzed at 6 months after surgery using the Wilcoxon sign-rank test for nonparametric data.Fourteen consecutive adult patients (15 eyelids) with chronic lagophthalmos and paralytic ectropion.Patients underwent aug-LTS-T. This consisted of a long strip (10-15 mm (...) ) that is attached to the outer temporal orbital rim, at a point higher than a conventional LTS. It included removal of a small part of the upper eyelid anterior lamella laterally to pass the long strip up high enough.Improvement of symptoms, reduction of lower margin reflex distance, lagophthalmos, and improvement of corneal signs.Minimum follow-up was 6 months. There was a significant reduction in PA (P = 0.005) and lagophthalmos (P = 0.0002) with improvement of corneal signs (14 of 15 eyelids = 93%). Surgery

-iminoethyl)-lysine (4 mg/kg), was injected intraperitoneally immediately after CLP to produce the CLP + L-N6-(1-iminoethyl)-lysine group to exclude the influence of depressed hemodynamics on neurologic impairment.It was found that administration of AM 281 could prevent the hemodynamic changes induced by sepsis. Reflex responses, including the pinna, corneal, paw or tail flexion, and righting reflexes, and the escape response significantly decreased in the CLP and CLP + L-N6-(1-iminoethyl)-lysine groups (...) at 48 hrs after the surgery. In contrast, no changes in these reflex responses were found between the CLP + AM 281 and control and sham groups. In addition, no effects of the administration of AM 281 on neurologic function and mortality rate in the control group were found. Tissue caspase-3 levels were elevated at 48 hrs after CLP in the CLP alone group (means +/- sd: control, 3.9 +/- 0.4; sham, 4.2 +/- 0.4; CLP, 7.1 +/- 1.0 [p < .01]; CLP + AM 281, 4.0 +/- 0.5 densitometric units).

randomly assigned to receive one of four different foldable IOLs after phacoemulsification: Storz Hydroview H60M, Corneal ACR6D, AMO SI40NB, and Alcon AcrySof MA60BM. Examinations on days 7, 30, 90, 180, 360, and 720 after surgery included ophthalmologic examination, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, and photography using red reflex and focal illumination of the anterior IOL surface.Best-corrected visual acuity was measured at each examination. In addition, the anterior capsule opacification and the membrane (...) growth on the anterior IOL surface were graded according to a subjective method by the same researcher.The fibrosis of the anterior capsule was more frequently observed in the group using Corneal ACR6D and AMO SI40NB. The Hydroview and ACR6D groups showed a higher percentage of cases with membrane growth from the rhexis edge on the anterior IOL surface. AcrySof showed the lowest presence of fibrosis of the anterior capsule, and no membrane growth was noted.Anterior capsule opacification is an index

632. The orbicularis oculi response after hemispheral damage. (PubMed)

The orbicularis oculi response after hemispheral damage. The corneal and blink reflexes were evaluated in 20 normal subjects and in 30 patients with motor deficits secondary to unilateral hemispheral lesions of vascular origin. In the normal population there were no differences between subjects below and subjects above 50 years of age. In the patients the reflex evoked by electrical stimulation of the cornea of the clinically affected side was depressed in 24 out of 30 cases. The depression (...) . The changes of the corneal reflex and of the R2 component of blink reflex were similar, but the blink reflex had a greater safety factor. The patients with an abnormal corneal reflex had more extensive damage than had the patients with normal corneal response, as shown by computer tomography, but the site of the lesion was comparable in the two groups. Conduction through the brain stem circuits mediating the orbicularis oculi response is normally under pyramidal facilitatory influences while facial

633. Seizures triggered by blinking in a non-photosensitive epileptic. (PubMed)

Seizures triggered by blinking in a non-photosensitive epileptic. An epileptic girl with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome had seizures triggered specifically by blinking, but not by other eye movements or by photic stimulation. Electrographic and clinical seizures were most reliably precipitated by repetitive blinking produced voluntarily on command, by reflex blinking on corneal stimulation, or by psychogenic triggers of blinking such as social stress or cognitive effort.

635. Idiopathic and symptomatic trigeminal pain. (PubMed)

Idiopathic and symptomatic trigeminal pain. The trigeminal reflexes (corneal reflex, blink reflex, masseter inhibitory periods, jaw-jerk) and far field scalp potentials (nerve, root, brainstem, subcortical) evoked by percutaneous infraorbital stimulation were recorded in 30 patients with "idiopathic" trigeminal neuralgia (ITN) and 20 with "symptomatic" trigeminal pain (STP): seven postherpetic neuralgia, five multiple sclerosis, four tumour, two vascular malformation, one Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (...) , and one traumatic fracture. All the patients with STP and two of those with ITN had trigeminal reflex abnormalities; 80% of patients with STP and 30% of those with ITN had evoked potential abnormalities. The results indicate that 1) trigeminal reflexes and evoked potentials are both useful in the examination of patients with trigeminal pain, and in cases secondary to specific pathologies provide 100% sensitivity; 2) in "symptomatic" and "idiopathic" paroxysmal pain the primary lesion affects

Anesthésie du lapin de Nouvelle-Zélande utilisant les combinaisons tilétamine-zolazépam et kétamine-midazolam avec ou sans xylazine. In this study, anesthesia levels obtained with tiletamine-zolazepam (TZ) and ketamine-midazolam (KM) with or without xylazine (X) were compared in rabbits. Reflexes (corneal, palpebral and withdrawal), blood parameters (PaO2, PaCO2, pH and ions HCO3-), cardiovascular function (heart rate and mean arterial blood pressure) and body temperature were evaluated (...) before and after the injections of the anesthetic combination in the same rabbits (n = 10). With KM and TZ, no suppression of reflexes occurred. The body temperature and pH decreased and HCO3- increased similarly to KMX et TZX. Some physiological and blood parameters were less (PAM, PaCO2) and not (PaO2) affected comparatively to KMX et TZX. These protocols were of short duration of action and did not offer any anesthesia or analgesia. Therefore, their utilization should be restricted to short
