PURPOSE: To correlate the pathologic features and heat shock protein 47 (HSP47) expression in the nasal mucosa and lacrimal sac with the surgical outcomes of endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (EDCR). METHODS: Specimens of the nasal mucosa and lacrimal sac over the rhinostomy site were collected during the operation. Haematoxylin-eosin and immunohistochemical staining were performed to determine the pathologic features (inflammation, fibrosis, squamous metaplasia) and the expression of HSP47 in the epithelium and sub-epithelial glands of the nasal mucosa and lacrimal sac...

PURPOSE: To describe the vascular changes of circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH) after ruthenium-106 brachytherapy using optical coherence tomography angiography (angio-OCT). METHODS: Seven eyes of 7 patients diagnosed with symptomatic CCH who underwent ruthenium-106 plaque radiotherapy were included in the study. Patients underwent complete ophthalmic examination, bulbar echography and angio-OCT. The same protocol was applied 1 year after ruthenium-106 brachytherapy...

AIMS: To determine the role of inferior meatus pathologies as an underdiagnosed cause of epiphora. METHODS: This study was conducted in the oculoplastic institution of Tel Aviv medical center-a regional referral center. A retrospective review of files of patients presenting to the lacrimal clinic with nasolacrimal duct obstruction between October 2010 and September 2016. Cases in which a pathology of the inferior meatus was identified and treated are presented in this article...

PURPOSE: This study was designed to assess the efficacy, reliability and repeatability of SPARCS (Spaeth Richman Contrast Sensitivity Test) as compared to the conventional Pelli Robson Chart Test for the assessment of contrast sensitivity in patients with glaucoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We evaluated 135 eyes of 135 patients who were age and sex matched into three groups (controls, disc suspects and glaucoma) of 45 patients each. The glaucoma subgroup was further divided into subgroups of mild, moderate and severe based on the visual field damage...

PURPOSE: This study is aimed to adapt a three-dimensional (3-D) in vitro angiogenesis model to the ophthalmology field using retinal endothelial cells (REC). This system is applied to assess the angiogenic capacity of aqueous humor (AH) from patients with ocular disorders, and to test the effect of VEGF inhibitor (aflibercept) on induced angiogenesis. METHODS: Human REC and umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) and pericytes were co-cultured in a gel matrix with 25-200 ng/ml pro-angiogenic growth factors (GF)...

AIMS: The aims of this study are as follows: (1) to describe a standardised methodology for the ice test, and where necessary a heat test; (2) to determine the effects of local cooling vs. heating on ptosis in myasthenia gravis (MG) patients. METHODS: Twenty-three MG patients with ptosis were identified from a tertiary referral neuroimmunology clinic, seventeen with significant ptosis ≥2 mm. Latex party balloons were filled with ice and cold tap water for the ice test, or with water heated to 45 °C for the heat test...

PURPOSE: To determine the functional and structural effects of trabeculectomy surgery on patients with advanced glaucoma and central visual field defects in the early post-operative period. METHODS: Thirty consecutive adult subjects with advanced glaucoma requiring trabeculectomy surgery and an established visual field defect within 10° of fixation underwent microperimetry (MAIA MP-1, CenterVue, Padova, Italy) and optic disc optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging (Spectralis, Heidelberg Engineering, Germany) pre-operatively, and 1 month and 3 months following trabeculectomy surgery...

PURPOSE: To determine whether microperimetry or optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging can detect early disease in the fellow eye of patients with unilateral focal ischaemic glaucoma. METHODS: Thirty-seven consecutive adult patients with unilateral focal ischaemic glaucoma with a unilateral split-fixation visual field defect on standard automated perimetry (SAP) with normal SAP in the fellow eye were selected. All patients underwent microperimetry (MAIA, CenterVue, Italy) of the central 10 degrees and OCT imaging (Spectralis, Heidelberg Engineering, Germany) of the retinal nerve fibre layer of both eyes...

PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with many systemic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. The aim of our study was to investigate the association between OSA and optic neuropathy (ON), and to evaluate the efficacy of treatment for OSA on the risk of ON.

PURPOSE: To detect the underlying pathogenesis of congenital cataract in a four-generation Chinese family. METHODS: Whole-exome sequencing (WES) of family members (III:4, IV:4, and IV:6) was performed. Sanger sequencing and bioinformatics analysis were subsequently conducted. Full-length WT-MIP or K228fs-MIP fused to HA markers at the N-terminal was transfected into HeLa cells. Next, quantitative real-time PCR, western blotting and immunofluorescence confocal laser scanning were performed...
