Robi N Maamari, Philip L Custer
PURPOSE: This study was performed to characterize the frequency, causes, and possible risk factors of operating room (OR) fires experienced by members of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. METHODS: An online questionnaire was distributed to American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery members, collecting data on surgical fires experienced by respondents throughout their careers. In addition, the questionnaire investigated viewpoints on OR fire safety, current practice patterns with oxygen delivery and surgical device usage, and management of patients referred after previous surgical fire exposure...

Importance: Headache can be a functional indication for ptosis repair and blepharoplasty. Objective: To evaluate the changes in headache-related quality of life in patients who underwent upper eyelid ptosis repair or blepharoplasty. Design, Setting, and Participants: A prospective cohort study was conducted among 108 patients who underwent standard upper eyelid blepharoplasty and 44 patients who underwent ptosis repair (levator resection, Müller muscle resection, or frontalis suspension) for obscuration of the superior visual field at an ophthalmology clinic's oculoplastic department from September 1, 2014, to September 1, 2015...

Importance: Melanoma in situ (MIS) is increasing in incidence, and expert consensus opinion recommends surgical excision for therapeutic management. Currently, wide local excision (WLE) is the standard of care. However, Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is now used to treat a growing subset of individuals with MIS. During MMS, unlike WLE, the entire cutaneous surgical margin is evaluated intraoperatively for tumor cells. Objective: To assess the outcomes of patients with MIS treated with MMS compared with those treated with WLE...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigates the hypoperfusion effects of epinephrine in local anesthesia in eyelid surgery. A novel form of extended-wavelength diffuse reflectance spectroscopy was evaluated. METHODS: Blood perfusion in porcine eyelid flaps was measured using laser Doppler velocimetry and laser speckle contrast imaging, whereas the tissue response was measured using diffuse reflectance spectroscopy with a broad spectrum (450-1550 nm). Epinephrine was either injected cumulatively, 0...

The authors aim to determine the periorbital soft tissue anthropometric norms for Turkish young adults for right and left eyes using a noninvasive two-dimensional photogrammetric analysis. Anthropometric measurements of the periorbital soft tissue were taken from 172 female and 56 male Turkish adults aged between 18 and 24 years. The periorbital soft tissue profiles (ocular and palpebral) for males and females were digitally analyzed using linear measurements made with standardized photographic records, taken in a natural head position...

The management of blind, painful eyes in Sturge-Weber syndrome patients poses unique challenges to the oculoplastic surgeon. Intraocular and orbital vascular malformations and calcification may theoretically lead to unexpected hemorrhage and difficulty placing an implant in a calcified scleral shell. We present two cases of patients with Sturge-Weber syndrome with blind, painful eyes who underwent evisceration with silicone implant and discuss the relevant current literature. Both of our patients had uncomplicated surgeries and post-operative courses...

The traditional use of the Crawford tube for lacrimal intubation during dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) carries several drawbacks. We describe the use of the STENTube for DCR intubation and detail its advantages. Retrospective, noncomparative, interventional case series; 313 patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) underwent 339 DCRs (216 external, 123 endonasal) with the STENTube from January 2007 - June 2013 by 5 surgeons (RS, QN, TS, SB, TN) across 3 institutions (SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Texas Oculoplastics Consultants, and Moorfields Eye Hospital)...

An abnormal change in skin colour is designated as discolouration of the skin. A 73-year-old male patient with circumscribed discolouration of the upper lid margin near the lacrimal pathway is presented. Slit lamp biomicroscopy showed no other signs of pathomorphological change. An excisional biopsy was performed. The whole abnormal area was removed. The oculoplastic procedure was the surest way to establish a definite diagnosis of Prurigo nodularis.

Critically ill patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) may develop eye problems, due to impaired ocular protective mechanisms or direct involvement of the eye in severe systemic diseases. If eye infections or ocular surface disorders are not identified in time, endophthalmitis or corneal ulcer may develop and can cause permanent functional injuries of the eye. A retrospective analysis was performed and a total of 283 complete intensive care courses of treatment were evaluated, taking into account ophthalmic medical consultations for frequent cardinal symptoms...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to assess practice patterns on the use of intraoperative Mitomycin-C (MMC) and lacrimal stents (intubation) in dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) for nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) among oculoplastic surgeons in India. The survey was aimed at obtaining data on the duration of stent placement and specifics regarding MMC usage namely, concentration and duration of application. METHODS: A survey that included questions on the management of lacrimal disorders was sent in April 2015 to members of the Oculoplastic Association of India, through an email communication...

AIM: To investigate the etiology, diagnosis, management and outcome of epiphora referrals to an oculoplastic practice. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of patients referred for epiphora to an oculoplastic clinic between 2005 and 2009. Patient demographics, past history, ophthalmic examination, treatment and outcome were analyzed. RESULTS: There were 237 subjects with a primary complaint of epiphora. They included 130 (55%) females and 107 (45%) males with an average age of 55...

Individuals with Charles Bonnet syndrome (CBS) typically have severe visual loss and experience visual hallucinations yet have no psychiatric disease. Visual impairment often is due to end-stage glaucoma or macular degeneration. We report 3 cases of CBS in patients who underwent an oculoplastic surgical procedure. One patient experienced binocular visual distortion due to excessive topical ophthalmic ointment, and 2 patients experienced monocular visual impairment from patching. Visual hallucinations resolved once vision returned to baseline...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To compare the ocular biomechanical properties in patients with thyroid eye disease (TED) and healthy participants using a non-contact Scheimpflug-based tonometer (CorVis ST). METHODS: All eyes were examined by slit lamp biomicroscopy, corneal tomography and the CorVis ST (CST). Patients with TED were examined by a fellowship trained oculoplastics specialist to determine status and assess severity. The outputs from CST and additionally derived parameters, including maximum orbital deformation (MOD), were compared between healthy participants and patients with TED using Student's t-test...

Importance: Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a relative contraindication for facial plastic surgery, but formal screening is not common in practice. The prevalence of BDD in patients seeking facial plastic surgery is not well documented. Objective: To establish the prevalence of BDD across facial plastic and oculoplastic surgery practice settings, and estimate the ability of surgeons to screen for BDD. Design, Setting, and Participants: This multicenter prospective study recruited a cohort of 597 patients who presented to academic and private facial plastic and oculoplastic surgery practices from March 2015 to February 2016...

David R Jordan, Bazil Stoica
The gracillimus orbitis muscle is an anomalous, accessory, or supernumerary extraocular muscle that, although is rarely seen clinically in the human orbit, has been identified in 5% to 14% of dissected cadaver orbits. It arises from the medial surface of the levator near its origin and runs forward between the levator and superior oblique muscles resembling one of the other extraocular muscles. More anteriorly, it becomes thinner, less well defined, and mostly fibrous. Its major insertion is into the fascia surrounding the trochlea, while other fibers may travel to the supratrochlear artery, intermuscular septum, the levator or medial rectus muscle, and the fascia surrounding the superior ophthalmic vein...
