OBJECTIVES: If mitral valve repair is not feasible, mitral valve replacement remains the only option. Based on our overall experience with the On-X mitral valve, the aim of this study was to investigate early and late outcomes after mitral valve replacement using this latest generation prosthesis. METHODS: From 1998 to 2016, 600 patients received an On-X prosthesis in the mitral position. Of them, we excluded all patients who had combined aortic procedures and retrospectively analysed 318 consecutive patients who had a mitral valve replacement...

PURPOSE: To compare keratometry and corneal astigmatism measurements obtained by the Verion Image Guided System to those obtained by automated keratometry (IOLMaster), manual keratometry (YZ38, Suzhou 66 visual Polytron Technologies Inc, China), and Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam HR) in eyes with cataract. METHODS: 149 cataractous eyes of 149 patients were examined and categorized as low astigmatism (<1.0D, N = 50), moderate astigmatism (1.0-2.0D, N = 49), and high astigmatism (>2...

The aim of this study was to develop a real-time RT-PCR to detect and quantitate feline morbillivirus (FeMV) RNA in biological samples. Primers and probe were targeted on a conserved region of FeMV P/V/C gene. To validate the assay with field samples, a total number of specimens of cats have been recruited including 264 urine and blood samples and compared with a generic RT-PCR targeting the L protein encoding gene of morbilliviruses. In addition, 385 tissue samples from 35 carcasses of cats have been also employed...

PURPOSE: To describe the age-related changes in with-the-rule (WTR) and oblique keratometric astigmatism (KA), posterior corneal astigmatism (PCA) and total corneal astigmatism (TCA). METHODS: We used a Pentacam HR (high-resolution) rotating Scheimpflug camera to determine the KA, PCA and TCA in the right eyes of 710 patients, aged from 20 to 88 years. The age-related changes along the vertical, horizontal and oblique meridians were analyzed with Naeser's polar value method in a cross-sectional study...

To assess the repeatability and reproducibility of AL-Scan in agreement with those by the IOLMaster in healthy children, two skilled operators measured ocular parameters in 58 children. The parameters included keratometry (K) values, anterior chamber depth (ACD), axial length (AL), central corneal thickness (CCT), pupil diameter (PD), and corneal diameter (CD). The cohort comprised of 32 boys and 26 girls. The AL-Scan measurements showed high repeatability, as the test-retest repeatability (TRT) values of AL, CCT, ACD, Kf, Ks, Km, CD, and PD were 0...

Extensive mitral annulus calcifications are considered a contraindication for valve surgery. We describe the case of a 76-year-old female with severe mitral and aortic stenosis associated with extensive calcifications of the heart. The patient underwent an open mitroaortic valve replacement using transcatheter aortic valve implantation with an Edwards SAPIEN XT valve (Edwards Lifesciences Corp., Irvine, CA, USA) in the mitral position. The aortic valve was replaced using a stentless valve prosthesis (LivaNova SOLO; LivaNova PLC, London, UK)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the posterior corneal surface differences between non-laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and 10-year post-LASIK myopic eyes. METHODS: The study included 130 eyes from 65 patients, who were treated with myopic LASIK 10 years ago. In addition, 130 eyes from 65 unoperated myopic patients of matching present age and preoperative refraction were divided into control group. Data on the posterior corneal surface and anterior chamber were obtained from Pentacam software and compared between the groups...

The present study was to assess the precision (repeatability and reproducibility) of a new optical biometer (OA-2000, Tomey, Japan) based on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and Placido disk topography in eyes with cataracts. Seventy-eight eyes from seventy-eight patients with cataracts were evaluated. Axial length (AL), anterior chamber depth (ACD), keratometry (K) over a 2.5 mm and 3.0 mm diameter, lens thickness (LT), central corneal thickness (CCT) and white-to-white (WTW) distance were measured by 2 skilled operators...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Giacomo Savini, Kenneth J Hoffer, Domenico Schiano Lomoriello, Pietro Ducoli
PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between corneal powers measured by simulated keratometry (Sim-K) and ray tracing and understand whether their difference influences intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation. METHODS: In a first sample of healthy eyes, corneal curvature was measured using a rotating Scheimpflug camera (Sirius, CSO). Sim-K was obtained from anterior corneal curvature using the 1.3375 keratometric index. Ray tracing was performed through both corneal surfaces to calculate the total corneal power (TCP)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the accuracy of the measurements provided by a new optical biometer (OA-2000, Tomey Corporation, Nagoya, Japan) for calculating the intraocular lens (IOL) power and to compare the refractive outcomes to those obtained with the IOLMaster 500 (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany). METHODS: In this interventional multicenter study, consecutive patients having cataract surgery were enrolled. Only the IOL model used in the largest sample of patients was selected and the eyes implanted with that IOL were subsequently analyzed...

PURPOSE: The purpose of our study was to describe the feature of acute non-arteritic or arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NA-AION and A-AION) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) and to compare it with fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). METHODS: In this retrospective, observational case-control study four NA-AION patients and one A-AION patient were examined by FA, ICGA and OCT-A within 2 weeks from disease presentation...

REVIEW
Kenneth J Hoffer, Giacomo Savini
An analysis of the studies published in the past 50 years reveals that the Haigis, Hoffer Q, and Holladay 2 formulas are the best options for intraocular lens power prediction in short eyes (<22 mm). In long eyes (>26 mm), the Barrett Universal II, Haigis (with optimized constants), Olsen, and SRK/T formulas provide the most accurate outcomes for intraocular lens power prediction.

Giacomo Savini, Kenneth J Hoffer, Piero Barboni, Domenico Schiano Lomoriello, Pietro Ducoli
PURPOSE: Given that a previous study found that corneal asphericity influences the refractive outcome of intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation by means of thin-lens formulas in eyes with spherical IOLs, the authors aimed to verify whether such influence can also be observed in eyes with aspherical IOLs. METHODS: In this retrospective comparative case series, IOL power was calculated with the Haigis, Hoffer Q, Holladay 1, and SRK/T formulas in two groups of eyes undergoing phacoemulsification and implantation of an aspherical IOL (Acrysof SN60WF; Alcon Laboratories, Inc...

The purpose of the current study was to compare the measurements between a new optical biometer based on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT), the OA-2000 (Tomey, Japan), and an optical biometer based on optical low coherence reflectometry (OLCR), the Lenstar (Haag-Streit, Switzerland). Ninety-nine eyes of 99 healthy subjects were included. The axial length (AL), central corneal thickness (CCT), anterior chamber depth (ACD), aqueous depth (AD), lens thickness (LT), keratometry (K) readings, including flat K (Kf), steep K (Ks), mean K (Km), astigmatism vectors J0, J45 at diameters of 2...

PURPOSE: To determine keratometric astigmatism (KA), posterior corneal astigmatism (PCA), and total corneal astigmatism (TCA) in 951 normal eyes, to establish a model for estimating TCA from anterior corneal data, and to test this method in a new group of eyes with toric intraocular lenses (TIOLs). METHODS: We used a Pentacam HR (high-resolution) Scheimpflug camera to determine KA, PCA, and TCA in 951 normal eyes. A model to estimate TCA from anterior corneal data was evaluated by the difference (=error) between the measured TCA and the estimated value...
