One of the most important field of interest in respect to hydrogel materials is their capability to water storage. The problem mentioned above plays an important role regarding to diffusion of fluid media containing nanoparticles, what is very useful in biomedical applications, such as artificial polymeric implants, drug delivery systems or tissue engineering.In presented work, dehydration process in hydrogels used in ophthalmology as intraocular lenses was observed. Before measurements studied materials were immersed in deionized water and saline solution to obtain equilibrium swelling state...

Mucolipidosis type IV (MLIV) is a lysosomal storage disease characterized by neurologic and ophthalmologic abnormalities. There is currently no effective treatment. MLIV is caused by mutations in MCOLN1, a lysosomal cation channel from the transient receptor potential (TRP) family. In this study we used genome editing to knockout the two mcoln1 genes present in Dario rerio (zebrafish). Our model successfully reproduced the retinal and neuromuscular defects observed in MLIV patients, indicating that this model is suitable for studying the disease pathogenesis...

The use of lasers is slowly pervading all subspecialties of ophthalmology, especially glaucoma, and lasers are slowly replacing many glaucoma surgeries. Conventional trabeculectomy has so far remained the gold standard for glaucoma surgery and efforts are being made to develop a new surgical approach to overcome the limited success rate and safety issues of this traditional procedure. There is a great interest in using lasers for ab interno and ab externo penetrating and nonpenetrating filtering surgery. Theoretically, laser-assisted surgery offers the potential advantage of improved accuracy, repeatability, and safety, although the main drawback of using lasers for this purpose is the potential collateral damage induced by the scattered energy...

INTRODUCTION: Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease with diverse clinical courses. Despite improvement in survival outcomes in the recent decades, sequelae of the disease remain a concern. This study aimed to provide information on the long-term outcomes in patients with LCH, particularly on the sequelae and any associated factors. METHOD: Medical records of patients with diagnosis of LCH and being managed in our centre were retrospectively reviewed...

Strabismus is one of the most challenging subspecialties encountered in the field of ophthalmology. The concept of etiology of strabismus is being advanced with the development of newer imaging modalities and increased understanding of the genetics of strabismus. Imaging is also being used to aid in the planning of strabismus surgery. Newer horizons are being explored in the amblyopia management. The good old eye-pad is being replaced with the iPad. Early detection of loss of stereopsis is being used to decide the timing for strabismus surgery...

CONCLUSION: A high rate of infrequent presentations of giant cell arteritis were seen in the ENT department and should be anticipated as a differential diagnosis in every older patient with odynophagia with high CRP values without cause in thorough ENT examination. OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical manifestation of head and neck giant cell arteritis and to derive a diagnostic pathway covering atypical cases. METHOD: Single-center, retrospective analysis of cases with GCA in the head and neck region (HN-GCA) (2002-2012) to describe the clinical presentation and to derive a diagnostic pathway covering manifestations presenting to an ENT department...

PURPOSE: Mid face injuries commonly destroy the integrity of the orbital skeleton, and are frequently complicated by injury to the eye, ranging between 2.7 and 90.6 % as reported in literature. The eye injuries range from simple subconjunctival haemorrhage to globe rupture. The paper aims to study the types of ocular injuries in patients with ZMC fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A study of 67 patients, who had sustained facial trauma sufficient to lead to a facial bone fracture, was undertaken in the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Govt Dental College, Srinagar from 2008 to 2014 and the patients received a comprehensive examination by an ophthalmologist within 1 week of injury...

Extract: Multiple endocrine neoplasia 2B (MEN2B) is an autosomal dominant inherited cancer syndrome associating medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), pheochromocytoma (PHEO), ganglioneuromatosis of the aerodigestive tract and facial, ophthalmologic and skeletal abnormalities. MEN2B is caused by the M918T and A883F mutation of the REarranged during Transfection (RET) proto-oncogene in approximately 95% and <5% of cases, respectively. Only very few other mutations have been reported to cause MEN2B. In approximately 75% of MEN2B patients, mutations occur as de novo (Wells, et al...

The classical term "pituitary apoplexy" (PA) describes a clinical syndrome usually characterized by abrupt onset of headache accompanied by neurologic and/or endocrinologic deterioration due to sudden expansion of a mass within the sella turcica as a result of hemorrhage or infarction within a pituitary tumor and adjacent pituitary gland. PA is a medical emergency and a difficult diagnosis to establish. Thus this article reviews the presenting symptoms of PA patients to help clinicians recognize or at least suspect this critical condition early on...
