days and mortality rate was 4.1%.Aerodigestive tract foreignbodies continue to be a significant cause of childhood morbidity and mortality in our setting. Rigid endoscopic procedures under general anesthesia are the main treatment modalities performed. Prevention is highly recommended whereby parents should be educated to keep a close eye on their children and keep objects which can be foreignbodies away from children's reach. (...) Endoscopic procedures for removal of foreignbodies of the aerodigestive tract: The Bugando Medical Centre experience. Foreignbodies in the aerodigestive tract continue to be a common problem that contributes significantly to high morbidity and mortality worldwide. This study was conducted to describe our own experience with endoscopic procedures for removal of foreignbodies in the aerodigestive tract, in our local setting and compare with what is described in literature.This
Predictive factors and outcomes of posterior segment intraocular foreignbodies To identify the predictive factors for anatomical and visual outcomes in posterior segment intraocular foreignbody (IOFB) patients managed by pars plana vitrectomy (PPV).A retrospective chart review was performed for 77 patients, who had PPV for IOFBs removal between January 2001 and July 2007. Univariate and multivariate analyses were conducted to evaluate the predictive factors.The mean age of the patients (...) pupillary defect.In noncombat IOFBs, most cases were work-related. Delayed IOFBs removal was acceptable when primary wounds were repaired appropriately and extensive antibiotics administered. Even though advancement in vitreoretinal surgery can reduce the frequency of blindness, further promotion and education on eye protection during work are needed.
An overview of penetrating ocular trauma with retained intraocular foreignbody Penetrating trauma is one of the common causes of ocular morbidity world wide. Violation of the globe integrity, also known as a ruptured globe is an ocular emergency that universally threatens vision. Prompt recognition and management is prudent. Here we report a case of a 26-year-old-female, university teacher, who presented with pain and sudden loss of vision in the left eye of 2 h duration subsequent to a test (...) tube blast in the chemical laboratory. Examinations revealed a ruptured globe with vitreous haemorrhage and an intraocular glass foreignbody in the left eye. Primary repair was done with good post operative visual recovery. We report this case to emphasize that protective measures should be taken to prevent such eye traumas.
Mysterious ForeignBody in Transverse Sinus This case report describes a patient who had a foreignbody in transverse sinus. A 35-year-old Korean-Chinese man visited the emergency room with lacerated wound in left eyelid and a foreignbody which was stumbled upon in the skull. On examination, there was right side hemianopsia in his left eye. He did not complain any headache or show any abnormal neurological signs, but there was a foreignbody at left transverse sinus in computed tomography (...) which was taken at another hospital. There was no intracranial abnormality except the foreignbody in computed tomography. Because of the financial problem, additional evaluations were not possible. We herein report a strange case in which the pathway of a foreignbody to locate in transverse sinus was ambiguous, and suggest that the foreignbody located in transverse sinus might have been the penetrated along the anterior fontanelle and passed through the superior sagittal sinus.
Hot, liquid glass injury as a novel mechanism for intraocular foreignbody To report the occurrence of a novel mechanism of IOFB with hot, liquefied glass injury.Retrospective case series.Two patients suffered an injury to their eye with hot, liquefied glass. The ocular findings included a single scleral entry wound with multiple glass fragments located inside the eye. Fragments were found embedded in the retina, as well as mobile on the retinal surface.This distinctive mechanism involves
have an effect on the travelling athlete. It is important to note that with travel, our circadian rhythm shifts with every 15 degrees travelled. Thereafter, our body clock has to move 1 hour into a new time zone. Travelling east is usually worse than west but it is important to control our meals, sleep and drinks. Through correct timing of those, we can decrease travel fatigue, illness and injury and jet lag as a whole. Interesting fact provided by Phato Zondi International travel to foreign (...)

The best treatment for eye irritation caused by CS spray BestBets: The best treatment for eye irritation caused by CS spray The best treatment for eye irritation caused by CS spray Report By: Helene Svinos - Medical Student Search checked by Anna O'Malley - Medical Student Institution: University of Manchester Date Submitted: 16th September 2008 Date Completed: 21st October 2011 Last Modified: 22nd October 2011 Status: Green (complete) Three Part Question In [patients with eye symptoms
acuity, intraocular pressure, and other complications were evaluated to assess safety and side effects.In total, 16 patients were included, with 8 enrolled in each group. Two patients from Group 2 were excluded from the analysis at days 45 and 90 because of corticosteroid use. Most patients were male (81.8%) and presented with limbal VKC (56.3%). There were statistically significant differences in favor of tacrolimus in the following severity scores: itching at day 90 (p=0.001); foreignbody (...) sensation at day 15 (p=0.042); photophobia at day 30 (p=0.041); keratitis at day 30 (p=0.048); and limbal activity at days 15 (p=0.011), 30 (p=0.007), and 45 (p=0.015). No relevant adverse effects were reported, except for a burning sensation with tacrolimus, though this did not compromise treatment compliance.Treatment with tacrolimus was superior to sodium cromoglycate when comparing severity scores for symptoms of itching, foreignbody sensation, and photophobia, as well as for signs of limbal
conjunctival socket. However, complications occur despite efforts and qualified surgeons. The most common complications described in the literature are thinning and cysts of the conjunctiva, a foreignbody reaction, secretion, symblepharons, fornix deficiency, ptosis, permanent pain, dislocation, migration and protrusion of the implant, a primary or secondary infection, and implant extrusion. From 2002 to 2014, 128 patients underwent orbital endoimplantation surgery at the Eye Clinic. The most common (...) Complications of orbital endoimplantation in the Eye Clinic of the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences The aim of the study was to analyse the rate of complications of orbital endoimplantation in patients operated from 2002 to 2014 at the Eye Clinic of the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences and to compare it with the results in the literature. Enucleation must be performed very carefully in order to prevent any additional trauma, infection, deformation, and to create an optimal
on the ITF scale and secondary outcome measures include tear break-up time (TBUT), ocular surface disease index score, corneal staining with fluorescein, conjunctival staining with lissamine green, and a patient questionnaire to evaluate symptoms of dry eye.Mean patient age was 70.7 years. A total of 73.5% of patients were Caucasian and 50% were female. Almost 60% had never complained of a foreignbody sensation; only 13% complained of a foreignbody sensation half or most of the time. The majority (...) The Prospective Health Assessment of Cataract Patientsâ€™ Ocular Surface (PHACO) study: the effect of dry eye To determine the incidence and severity of dry eye as determined by the International Task Force (ITF) scale in patients being screened for cataract surgery.This was a prospective, multi-center, observational study of 136 patients, at least 55 years of age, who were scheduled to undergo cataract surgery. The primary outcome measure was the incidence of dry eye as evaluated by grade
ocular pain secondary to dry eye symptoms. At her subsequent visit, bandage contact lens was removed from her left eye, but none was found in the right eye. Documentation from further visit stated that the bandage contact lenses were no longer in situ. 6.5 years since the lens insertion, lid eversion revealed a 'foreignbody' retained beneath her right upper eyelid, which was noted to be a folded, discoloured bandage contact lens.The 'upper fornix trap', where the contact lens may be retained (...) Folded bandage contact lens retention in a patient with bilateral dry eye symptoms: a case report. Bandage contact lenses are commonly used by ophthalmic practitioners to protect the patient's cornea. We report a case of folded bandage contact lens retained for six and a half years in the upper subtarsal space. To our knowledge, no other cases of retained bandage contact lens have previously been reported in the literature.A patient was applied a pair of bandage contact lenses due to persistent
between each FBUP.In each FBUP, eye dryness and fatigue were the severest symptoms. Characteristic symptoms were sensitivity to light, heavy eyelids, pain, foreignbody sensation, difficulty opening the eye, and discharge for AB, heavy eyelids for SB, and foreign-body sensation for LB. Statistically significant differences were found in TMR (AB-SB, -DB, and -RB; LB-RB), IG (AB-all other FBUP; LB-SB and -DB), and SG (AB-all other FBUPs), FBUT (AB-LB, -DB, and -RB; SB-DB and -RB; LB-RB; DB-RB (...) Classification of Fluorescein Breakup Patterns: A Novel Method of Differential Diagnosis for Dry Eye. To investigate the relationship between fluorescein breakup patterns (FBUPs) and clinical manifestations in dry eye cases.Cross-sectional study.In 106 eyes of 106 subjects (19 male, 87 female; mean age: 64.2 years), FBUPs were categorized into 1 of the following 5 break (B) types: area (AB, n = 19); spot (SB, n = 22); line (LB, n = 24); dimple (DB, n = 19); random (RB, n = 22 eyes); and dry eye
in Australia.The Birmingham Eye Trauma Terminology (BETT) system was used to classify injuries as globe ruptures, penetrating eye injuries (PEIs), intraocular foreignbodies (IOFBs) or perforating injuries. Demographic data, past ocular history, mechanism of trauma, ocular injuries, and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) before and after treatment were recorded.The 205 OGIs included 80 globe ruptures, 71 PEIs, 48 IOFBs and six perforating injuries. Falls predominated in older age groups compared to the other (...) mechanisms of injury (p<0.0001). A fall was responsible for 33 globe ruptures and 82% of these had a history of previous intraocular surgery. Globe rupture and perforating injuries had poorer visual outcomes (p<0.05), consistent with previous studies. Alcohol was implicated in 20 cases of OGI, with 11 of these due to assault. PEIs and IOFBs commonly occurred while working with metal. BCVA was significantly worse following removal of an intraocular foreignbody. We found presenting BCVA to be a good
