patients for IOIS, IgG4-related orbital disease, or other inflammatory/granulomatous disease. Currently there is little evidence to support one modality’s superiority to others in evaluating this patient population [39-41]. A hallmark of IOIS in its chronic form is fibrosis, which results in decreased signal on T2-weighted MRI sequences [48]. A small subset of patients with isolated ocular manifestation of IOIS had posterior scleritis, with inflammatory enhancement of the sclera on postcontrast imaging

148. Microinvasive subconjunctival insertion of a trans-scleral gelatin stent for primary open-angle glaucoma

at the same time as phacoemulsification and intraocular lens insertion for treating cataracts. 2.5 Under local or topical anaesthesia, a small incision is made in the cornea, and the anterior chamber is filled with viscoelastic. A preloaded implant injector is then advanced through the same corneal incision and directed towards the scleral spur. The injector needle is directed through the sclera to emerge under the conjunctiva, approximately 2 mm to 3 mm behind the limbus. The soft and permanent gelatin (...) stent is then injected, to traverse the anterior chamber, sclera and conjunctival space. After placement is checked (using a gonioscopy mirror) the viscoelastic is exchanged for a balanced salt solution and the injector is withdrawn. The corneal incision is usually self-sealing but is sometimes sutured. Subconjunctival injection of mitomycin-C may be done during the procedure. 3 3 Committee consider Committee considerations ations The e The evidence vidence 3.1 T o inform the committee, NICE did

and transmitting coil and an electronic case fixed to the outside of the sclera (white of the eye), and an electrode array (60 electrodes) that is surgically attached to the surface of the retina. The electrode array is connected to the electronic case by a ribbon cable that passes through the sclera. 1 The camera housed within the glasses captures images that are sent to the video processing unit and converted to electronic signals. These signals are then sent to the transmitter coil on the glasses (...) Products, Inc. Implantation of the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System can be performed by a single surgeon in a two-hour outpatient procedure under general anaesthesia. 3 Details regarding the surgery are as follows: ? At commencement of the implant procedure, antibiotics and steroids are administered by intravenous injection. ? In phakic eyes (eyes with a lens) the lens is removed. ? An incision is made into the conjunctiva surrounding the cornea, exposing the underlying sclera and extra-ocular

is indicated only for those with abnormal baseline ALT, known liver disease, risk factors for liver disease, or in patients who are on other potentially hepatotoxic medications. Liver function tests (LFTs) should also be measured if symptoms suggesting hepatotoxicity arise (e.g., unusual fatigue or weakness, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, dark-colored urine or yellowing of the skin or sclera).For other patients with abnormal baseline LFTs, see Table 4 for monitoring based on level of abnormality

154. Ab externo canaloplasty for primary open-angle glaucoma

, viscocanalostomy or laser trabeculoplasty may also be used. 3 3 The procedure The procedure 3.1 Ab externo canaloplasty is a surgical technique that aims to reduce intraocular pressure by improving drainage of aqueous fluid from the eye. It is done under local or general anaesthetic. A superficial hinged flap of sclera is made and a deeper flap excised, exposing the Schlemm's canal. An ultrasound imaging system is used to identify the canal and to visualise the surgical instruments when they are in the canal

155. Sequential traumatic corneal open globe rupture in a patient with osteogenesis imperfecta type I (PubMed)

at school while wearing protective lenses. One year ago, he required surgical repair of a left open globe following blunt trauma during a middle school basketball game. His exam was significant for a full-thickness corneal laceration, necessitating open globe repair of his right eye, which was remarkably difficult given the poor tissue constitution of the cornea and sclera. He was referred to a genetics specialist, where he was found to have a pathogenic heterozygous splice site variant in the COL1A1

157. Posterior staphylomas and scleral curvature in highly myopic children and adolescents investigated by ultra-widefield optical coherence tomography. (PubMed)

according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, Japan classification. A posterior displacement of the sclera and two OCT features indicating the staphyloma edges were used as markers of a staphyloma.Fifty-five eyes of 30 patients with the mean age of 12.3 years, and the mean axial length of 27.9 mm were studied. Seven of the 55 eyes (12.7%) had a posterior displacement of the sclera and were diagnosed as having a staphyloma. Among the two OCT features of the staphyloma edges, a gradual thinning (...) of the choroid toward the staphyloma edge and gradual re-thickening of choroid from the staphyloma edge toward the posterior pole were found in these 7 eyes. However, the other feature of an inward protrusion of the sclera at the staphyloma edge, was obvious in only 2 eyes. The subfoveal choroid and choroid nasal to the optic disc were significantly thinner in eyes with a staphyloma than those without it.The changes of the choroidal thickness toward the staphyloma edge with the posterior displacement

To measure laminar and peripapillary scleral architecture in normal and glaucomatous Chinese eyes with normal and those with elongated axial length.The histomorphometric investigation included a normal group (nonaxially elongated eyes) of 40 human globes (40 patients; mean age, 41.3 +/- 13.4 years; range,15-68) enucleated because of malignant choroidal melanoma (...) significantly between the glaucomatous group and the normal group. The distance between the intraocular space and cerebrospinal fluid space was (P < 0.001) shorter in the two glaucomatous groups than in the normal group.Lamina cribrosa thickness and peripapillary sclera thickness decreased significantly with axial length, in addition to a glaucoma-related thinning of the lamina cribrosa. In non-axially elongated eyes, the peripapillary sclera thickness did not vary significantly between glaucomatous eyes

159. 5-Fluorouracil for glaucoma surgery. (PubMed)

5-Fluorouracil for glaucoma surgery. Trabeculectomy is performed as a treatment for many types of glaucoma in an attempt to lower the intraocular pressure. The surgery involves creating a channel through the sclera, through which intraocular fluid can leave the eye. If scar tissue blocks the exit of the surgically created channel, intraocular pressure rises and the operation fails. Antimetabolites such as 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) are used to inhibit wound healing to prevent the conjunctiva (...) scarring down on to the sclera. This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in 2000, and previously updated in 2009.To assess the effects of both intraoperative application and postoperative injections of 5-FU in eyes of people undergoing surgery for glaucoma at one year.We searched CENTRAL (which contains the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group Trials Register) (The Cochrane Library 2013, Issue 6), Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid MEDLINE In-Process and Other Non-Indexed Citations, Ovid MEDLINE Daily, Ovid
