AIM: To present a novel scleral flap suturing technique for filtering glaucoma surgery in order to control high postoperative intraocular pressure (IOP). METHODS: Description of 'the accordion suture' technique for mitomycin C augmented trabeculectomy. In cases of postoperative high IOP, pulling the loop of the suture helps to lift up the scleral flap by an even pressure on both edges. By means of this technique, the scleral flap opens up in an "accordion" manner, thus preventing flap obstruction and providing adequate aqueous flow...

Our study retrospectively reviewed the surgical outcomes up to 3mo of 38 consecutive Chinese glaucoma patients who underwent trabeculectomy (n=18) or phacotrabeculectomy (n=20). Baseline age, visual acuity, and intraocular pressure were comparable. Intraocular pressure from post-operative 1d to 3mo were similar between 2 groups. Complete success was achieved in 65% of phacotrabeculectomy, and 66.7% of trabeculectomy cases; while failure occurred in 16.7% of phacotrabeculectomy, and 10% of trabeculectomy cases at 3mo...

A retrospective analysis was performed of patients who received a paracentesis immediately following an intravitreal injection of bevacizumab or triamcinolone acetonide. These patients were previously diagnosed as having glaucoma, ocular hypertension, or had responded previously with sustained elevated intraocular pressure. Of 1661 procedures were performed. Totally 219 (13%) of the injections were on phakic patients. A median (SD) of 210 µL (40 µL) of aqueous was removed during each paracentesis. There were no reported incidences of any complications...

Cross-sectional study of 75 consecutive patients presenting with acute symptomatic posterior vitreous detachment (ASPVD) and vitreous hemorrhage was conducted at University Eye Clinic, University Hospital "Sveti Duh", Zagreb, Croatia. To check ultrasound reliability in detecting retinal tears in patients with ASPVD, transpalpebral ultrasound of the eye and the orbit was performed followed by fundus examination initially and in 6wk period. In 13 (17%) patients membranous lesion with ultrasound characteristics of retinal tear was detected...

The aim of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of trans-epithelial accelerated corneal cross-linking (TE-ACXL) in children with progressive keratoconus. Retrospective, case-series of 23 eyes of 14 children who underwent TE-ACXL. Evaluations were performed at baseline and 1, 3, 6, 12 and 18mo postoperatively. Mean follow-up time of 23.82±3.15mo and mean age was 13.7±1.4y (range 11 to 16y). Mean preoperative uncorrected distance visual acuity changed from 0.92±0.45 logMAR (20/160) to 0.71±0.40 logMAR (20/100) (P=0...

Telemedicine is an emerging field in recent medical achievements with rapid development. The "smartphone" availability has increased in both developed and developing countries even among people in rural and remotes areas. Tele-based services can be used for screening ophthalmic diseases and also monitoring patients with known diseases. Electronic ophthalmologic records of the patients including captured images by smartphones from anterior and posterior segments of the eye will be evaluated by ophthalmologists, and if patients require further evaluations, they will be referred to experts in the relevant field...

Macrophages are involved in angiogenesis, and might also contribute to the pathogenesis of intraocular neovascular diseases. Recent studies indicated that macrophages exert different functions in the process of intraocular neovascularization, and the polarization of M1 and M2 phenotypes plays extremely essential roles in the diverse functions of macrophages. Moreover, a large number of cytokines released by macrophages not only participate in macrophage polarization, but also associate with retinal and choroidal neovascular diseases...

AIM: To investigate the published papers of ophthalmology in past ten years and explore the development of ophthalmology. METHORDS: The data of this study retrieved from Science Citation Index Expanded and downloaded online in November 2017, including all the papers with publication year from 2007-2016 were analyzed. The papers were based on the Web of Science category and the journals were based on the Journal Citation Report category. RESULTS: The number of ophthalmology papers increased from 7450 to 9089 during 2007 to 2017...

AIM: To describe the prevalence and changes in treatment patterns of ranibizumab and photodynamic therapy (PDT) among retinal disease patients who attended the Ophthalmology Clinic in the tertiary care Hospital Selayang from 2010 to 2014. METHODS: Study subjects were recruited retrospectively using the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) database software in Hospital Selayang. Demographic data, medical history, diagnostic procedure, treatments and diagnosis of patients were recorded...

AIM: To describe the morphological changes of the lamina cribrosa (LC) in patients with optic nerve compression. METHODS: Cross-sectional study. Twenty eyes with optic nerve compression, affected by Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO) were compared with 18 refractive error-matched healthy eyes. The following examinations were performed: best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure, optic nerve echography, visual field, SD-OCT including the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), ganglion cell complex (GCC), and LC thickness and extent...

AIM: To assess the impact of macular surgery on the functional and anatomic outcomes of the patients in different grades of epiretinal membrane (ERM). METHODS: Seventy-one eyes of 71 patients who underwent 23-gauge transconjunctival sutureless pars plana vitrectomy for primary isolated ERM were evaluated in this study. RESULTS: There were 38 females (53.5%) and 33 males (46.5%). The average age of the patients was 68.1y (range 42-89y). Mean follow up period was 14mo (range 6-26mo)...
