161. Screening and Management of Lipids

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

162. 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

163. 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

identified within the following genes: FGB (4q28, p = 3.60×10-7), PQLC1 (18q23, p = 8.9×10-7) and KRT12 (17q21.2, p = 1.2×10-6). Both PQLC1 and KRT12 were found to be significantly expressed in fetal and adult cornea and sclera tissues in both human and mouse.We identified five CpG methylation sites that demonstrate a statistically significant association with increased risk of developing early-onset myopia. These findings suggest that variability in the neonatal cord epigenome may influence early-onset

166. 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

168. 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

as the tumor progresses. Invasion of the choroid is common, although occurrence of massive invasion is usually limited to advanced disease. After invading the choroid, the tumor gains access to systemic circulation and creates the potential for metastases. Further progression through the ocular coats leads to invasion of the sclera and the orbit. Anteriorly, tumor invading the anterior chamber may gain access to systemic circulation through the canal of Schlemm.

176. The removal of imbedded corneal foreign bodies to any person presenting to an optometrist

by optometrists is shown below in Table 1. The wording of the proposed item is based on MBS item 42644, for removal of CFB by an ophthalmologist (with the omission of the word ‘sclera’). Should the proposed MBS item be approved, the Department of Health recommended that additional explanatory notes be added to para O6 of the Medicare Benefits Schedule Book Optometrical Services Schedule, as shown in Table 1. A fee of $90.25 was proposed by the applicant, based on direct and indirect practice costs (...) to a corneal ulcer. The applicant has proposed the existing item descriptor (42644) be adopted for the optometry item with the removal of 'sclera’ and PASC proposed the same schedule fee as for 42644. ESC agreed that there should not be a requirement for co-claiming with a consultation item. ESC noted that PASC recommended that if a new item be listed it be claimed with a consultation item, on the basis that this was how GPs claimed the item. However, MBS data showed that only about 70% of these services
