. A persisting problem is the lack of medical recognition of the severity of injuries that can result from these guns, including penetration of the eye, skin, internal organs, and bone. Nationally, in 2000, there were an estimated 21840 (coefficient of variation: 0.0821) injuriesrelated to nonpowder guns, with approximately 4% resulting in hospitalization. Between 1990 and 2000, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission reported 39 nonpowder gun-related deaths, of which 32 were children younger than 15 (...) years. The introduction of high-powered air rifles in the 1970s has been associated with approximately 4 deaths per year. The advent of war games and the use of paintball guns have resulted in a number of reports of injuries, especially to the eye. Injuries associated with nonpowder guns should receive prompt medical management similar to the management of firearm-relatedinjuries, and nonpowder guns should never be characterized as toys.
Facial and ocular injuries associated with methamphetamine production accidents. To evaluate the relative contribution of methamphetamine production-related accidents to facial and ocular injuries admitted to a regional burn unit.Retrospective observational case series.Chart review of all patients admitted to the Burn Unit at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) over a 16-month interval.Methamphetamine related accidents were responsible for thirteen (9.8%) of 132 patients (...) admitted with facial burns to UIHC during the study period. All victims were male. In addition to facial burns, eight patients (14 eyes) suffered chemical or thermal burns of the ocular surface of Hughes grade I or worse. One patient required full-thickness skins grafts for cicatricial ectropion of all four eyelids.In endemic areas such as Iowa, methamphetamine production accidents contribute to as many as 10% of admissions to burn care units for facial and ocular injuries.
Combined topical anesthesia and sedation for open-globe injuries in selected patients. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of topical anesthesia (TA) and IV sedation in surgery for less severe open-globe injury (OGI).Noncomparative consecutive interventional case series.Of 67 OGI cases reviewed at the Department of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology, University of Bari, Bari, Italy, in the period from 1999 to 2000, 10 eyes (14.9%) of 10 consecutive patients (age range, 6-58 years) were repaired (...) using TA and IV sedation. All patients belonged to the American Society of Anesthesiologists risk class I or II. Nine eyes had corneoscleral wounds, four had vitreous loss, two had traumatic cataract, and three had an intraocular foreign body (IOFB); one patient had interruption of a continuous penetrating keratoplasty suture. Preoperatively, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) ranged from hand movement to 20/20.Corneoscleral suture was performed in nine patients, vitreous excision in four, uveal
and use of eyewear and to estimate their possible relation to deployment of airbags.Analysis of the published reports revealed that airbag-induced eyeinjuries were not more frequently reported among wearers of eyeglasses than among nonwearers. However, open-eyeinjuries were reported three times more often among eyeglass wearers (P = 0.04), whereas all injuries from airbag chemicals occurred among nonwearers. With the exception of one orbital fracture with hyphema, all eye traumas (n = 7) in the FAS (...) and AB cohorts were mild (eyebrow laceration, lid contusion, bruising). The risk of airbag-relatedeyeinjury was 2.5% for any eyeinjury and 0.4% for severe eyeinjury. In single accidents when seat belts were used, the risks were 2.0% and 0.5%, respectively. In the accidents from the FAS data no difference was observed in the risk for eyeinjury between survivors in incidents involving airbag deployment and incidents not involving airbags. This risk was not found to be greater among eyeglass
Mass and shape as factors in intraocular foreign body injuries. To relate the nature, mass, and shape of intraocular foreign bodies (IOFBs) in a consecutive series of 69 patients to the mechanism, location, and visual outcome of the injuries and to compare these outcomes with data collected in our department over the last 70 years.Interventional case series of consecutive patients with IOFBs.Sixty-nine patients with unilateral IOFBs.All patients underwent surgical removal of the IOFB.Patient (...) between increased time to IOFB removal and the development of endophthalmitis. The frequency of posterior vitreous detachment was not increased in eyes with more severe injury or those in which surgery was deferred. Final BCVA> or =20/40 was achieved in 56% of the patients.Intraocular foreign bodies of greater mass were associated with worse outcomes. We have observed an 82% reduction in number of IOFB injuries presenting over the last 70 years and outcomes have improved with advances in surgical
in the 70 years and older age group had the highest riding mower injury incidence. Children younger than 15 years also had a substantial injury incidence. Individuals in the 15- to 19-year age group had the highest rate of hospitalizations caused by lawnmower injuries from 1996 through 2003, with 0.72 per 100,000 person-years (95% confidence interval 0.07 to 1.36). Debris from under the mower hitting a body part or entering the eye was the most common mechanism for lawnmower injury. The second most (...) common mechanism of injury was nonspecific pain onset after the ordinary operation of the mower. Fracture of 1 or more phalanges of the foot was the most common diagnosis among lawnmower injury hospitalizations, with 34.4%, followed by traumatic amputation of the toe, with 32.4%. There is an increasing trend of lawnmower injuries in the United States during the last 9 years.Lawnmower injuries increase with age, with peaks in persons older than 59 years. Given the high incidence of projectile-related
The effect of retinal ganglion cell injury on light-induced photoreceptor degeneration. To determine the effect of optic nerve transection (ONT) and excitotoxic retinal ganglion cell (RGC) injury on light-induced photoreceptor degeneration.Age- and sex-matched rats underwent unilateral ONT or received intravitreal injections of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). The fellow eye received sham treatment, and 7 or 21 days later each eye was subjected to an intense photic injury. Maximum a- and b-wave (...) reductions in the mean a- and b-wave amplitudes. Seven days after intravitreal NMDA the b-wave amplitude was reduced, but the a-wave was unaffected. ONT and NMDA injection attenuated the light-induced reductions in the a- and b-wave. Rod opsin mRNA levels and rhodopsin kinase protein levels were also significantly greater in the axotomized and NMDA-treated eyes compared with the sham-treated fellow eyes after the photic injury. Structural protection in the RGC-injured eyes was also evident histologically
and 41% of nonobstetric neuraxial anesthesia claims were block related. Obstetrics had a higher proportion of neuraxial anesthesia claims with temporary and low-severity injuries (71%) compared with the nonobstetric group (38%; P injury compared with the nonobstetric group (P Eye blocks accounted for 5% of regional anesthesia claims.Obstetric claims were predominately associated with minor injuries. Permanent injury from eye blocks increased in the 1990s. Neuraxial cardiac arrest and neuraxial hematomas associated with coagulopathy remain sources of high-severity injury.

Visual outcome after fireworks injuries. The epidemiology and prognosis of fireworks-relatedinjuries treated at a tertiary eye care center in less developed nations remain unknown.We conducted a prospective observational study that enrolled all consecutive eyes with fireworks-related ocular injury visiting our trauma clinic during a 1-year period. Eyes were graded by ocular trauma classification and followed for 6 months at least. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at 6 months was considered (...) of intraocular foreign body (p = 0.026), and absence of endophthalmitis (p = 0.006). Besides poor visual outcome, bottle rocket injuries were more frequently associated with facial lacerations, intraocular foreign body, and endophthalmitis development.Fireworks-related ocular injuries commonly affect young male subjects of northern India. Visual outcome is better in eyes having better initial BCVA or closed globe injury and if relative afferent pupillary defect, bottle rocket injury, intraocular foreign body
%). Projectile objects accounted for the majority of open globe injuries in men (54.9%) and were an infrequent cause in women (4.3%). Nearly one-third (31.8%) of the projectile injuries in men were work-related, and 19.7% occurred during home improvement projects. Compared with men, falls were more frequently responsible for globe injuries in women (55.3% versus 8.1%). Injuries limited to the cornea were more common in men than women (46.2% versus 23.4%), while more posterior globe injuries were more common (...) among women (46.8% versus 28.3% men). Women were more likely than men to have poor visual acuity at 3 months after injury.The causes and patterns of open globe injuries differ between men and women. In this series, the majority of injuries to men were caused by projectile objects related to work or home improvement projects. Open globe injuries in women were most often resulted from fall, and were more likely to cause rupture posterior to the limbus.
Fourteen-year review of open globe injuries in an urban Korean population. To review the epidemiology and prognostic factors related to visual outcome after open globe injuries.A retrospective case review during a 14-year period.The study was based on a sample of 321 patients (321 eyes) with open globe injuries. Gender of the sample was predominantly male (76.6%) and the average age was 38.8 years. Injuries occurred most frequently in autumn (37.7%) and in the work place (45.8%). The anatomic (...) site of the wound was corneal (zone I) in 148 eyes, corneoscleral (zone II) in 61 eyes, and scleral (zone III) in 92 eyes. Initial visual acuity was 4/200 or worse in 77.9% of patients and was significantly correlated with the zone of injury (linear by linear association p = 0.000). The elapsed time from injury to surgery was shorter than 48 hours in 90.7%. Primary repair was performed in 301 eyes and, subsequently, pars plana vitrectomy in 165 eyes, and cataract extraction in 67 eyes. Anatomic
A Case of Photic Retinal Injury Associated with Exposure to Plasma Arc Welding To report of photic retinopathy induced by plasma arc welding, and the OCT (optical coherence tomography) results of damaged retinal lesions.We describe a case report of a 37-year-old male, working in the steel industry, who presented with central scotoma in both eyes.On his first visit, one day after performing plasma arc welding with protective gear at work, his best corrected vision was 0.7 for both eyes (...) . Ophthalmic examination of the fundus showed a round yellow lesion with an approximate size of 300 micrometers superonasal to the fovea of both eyes. On his next visit, one month later, his vision had recovered to 1.0, his symptoms had improved, and the ophthalmoscopic examination of the fundus revealed that the round yellow spots had disappeared from both eyes.To our knowledge, this is the first report of photic retinopathy induced by plasma arc welding, and the OCT (optical coherence tomography) results
in the glaucomatous eye, and following optic nerve injury. In addition, a variety of different strategies for providing neuroprotection to the injured retina have been proposed. Many of these are based on the use of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a particularly potent neuroprotectant in the mammalian eye and the basis of our research in this area. Of particular importance is the fact that BDNF not only promotes ganglion cell survival following damage to the optic nerve, but also helps to preserve (...) the structural integrity of the surviving neurons, which in turn results in enhanced visual function. The studies presented here describe these attributes, and serve as the foundation for ongoing work that suggests a need to think beyond the eye in the development of future treatment strategies.
