REVIEW
Naoki Haruta
There were three epoch making events in therapy of varicose veins. The first one is that the endovascular heat ablation (EVHA) using diode laser was authorized by the Ministry of Health Labor and Welfare in January 2011. The second one is that Subfascial Endoscopic Perforator Surgery (SEPS) was also authorized in April 2014. All of the therapies which were covered by the national insurance system had been the procedures for superficial veins but the SEPS is procedure for the perforating veins. The third one is that the foam usage of Polidocasklerol was listed formally at the medical package insert in September 2016...

We describe a new technique to prevent an endothelial donor graft from dropping into the vitreous cavity during non-Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (nDSAEK) for extremely mydriatic bullous keratopathy (BK) eyes without capsular support. The patient was a 79-year-old woman who underwent nDSAEK for an extremely mydriatic BK eye with an incomplete barrier between the anterior and posterior chambers. She had undergone argon laser iridotomy for acute glaucoma at the age of 59 years and cataract surgery 3 years later...

Purpose: To report an unusual case of ectopia lentis and angle closure in a patient with chronic eye rubbing. Methods: A 57-year-old male with a history of poorly controlled atopic dermatitis presented with right eye pain, decreased vision, and an intraocular pressure (IOP) of 55 mm Hg. He had no past history of ocular disease and no reported history of trauma. He did report a history of chronic eye rubbing. Results: Best corrected visual acuity was hand motions...

INTRODUCTION AND AIM: To present our results on femtosecond laser-assisted penetrating keratoplasty. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Twenty-five eyes of 25 patients underwent surgery with the following indications: pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (n = 10), keratoconus (n = 4), corneal dystrophy (n = 5), corneal scar (n = 4), band keratopathy (n = 2). Trephination of both the donor and recipient corneas were performed with VisuMax femtosecond laser device (Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Jena, Germany)...

BACKGROUND: Photoangiolytic lasers have broadened the surgical armamentarium for many phonosurgical interventions. However, the pulse dye laser and potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser have technical drawbacks and a smaller spectrum of indications. METHODS AND RESULTS: The new 445 nm wavelength laser, the so-called 'blue laser', proves to show tissue effects comparable to the KTP laser and is also capable of treating subepithelial vessels due to its photoangiolytic properties, it can coagulate and carbonize at higher energy levels, and can be used via glass fibers in non-contact and contact mode for in-office procedures...

AIM: To evaluate and compare the uniformity of angle Kappa adjustment between Oculyzer and Topolyzer Vario topography guided ablation of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) by EX500 excimer laser for myopia. METHODS: Totally 145 cases (290 consecutive eyes )with myopia received LASIK with a target of emmetropia. The ablation for 86 cases (172 eyes) was guided manually based on Oculyzer topography (study group), while the ablation for 59 cases (118 eyes) was guided automatically by Topolyzer Vario topography (control group)...

AIM: To compare the optical quality after implantation of implantable collamer lens (ICL) and wavefront-guided laser in situ keratomileusis (WG-LASIK). METHODS: The study included 40 eyes of 22 patients with myopia who accepted ICL implantation and 40 eyes of 20 patients with myopia who received WG-LASIK. Before surgery and three months after surgery, the objective scattering index (OSI), the values of modulation transfer function (MTF) cutoff frequency, Strehl ratio, and the Optical Quality Analysis System (OQAS) values (OVs) were accessed...

AIM: To analyze and compare five different variables over one year follow-up (1wk, 1, 3, 6 and 12mo): anterior capsule (AC), and posterior capsule (PC) area densitometry values, AC and PC linear densitometry values, and AC opening area reduction ratio after femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery. METHODS: This was a prospective comparative study. Seventy-one patients underwent femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery on single eye between June 2014 and December 2015...

AIM: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the excimer laser correction of the residual refractive errors after cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in uncommon cases. METHODS: Totally 24 patients with high residual refractive error after cataract surgery with IOL implantation were examined.

Patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis often develop chronic anterior uveitis (JIAU). JIAU patients possess a particularly high risk for developing secondary glaucoma when inflammatory inactivity has been achieved. By using multiplex bead assay analysis, we assessed levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, or metalloproteinases in the aqueous humor (AH) of patients with clinically inactive JIAU with (JIAUwG) or without secondary glaucoma (JIAUwoG), or from patients with senile cataract as controls...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical outcome of patients with venous malformation (VM) involving the eyelid treated with bleomycin sclerotherapy. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of 18 consecutive patients with VM involving the eyelid who underwent bleomycin sclerotherapy. Patients' clinical presentation, details of sclerotherapy, and post-sclerotherapy resolution of the lesion as well as any procedure-related complications were evaluated. RESULTS: Twelve women and six men of mean age 34...

PURPOSE: To analyze the incidence, indications, and outcomes associated with early flap relifting after uncomplicated laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). METHODS: All LASIK cases from a single surgical center between 2007 and 2015 were reviewed. Early postoperative flap lift cases (<15 d after surgery) were identified. RESULTS: Overall, 25,712 eyes were included, of which 366 (1.42%) underwent early postoperative flap lifting. There was a significant reduction in early postoperative flap lifting rates from 2006 (2...

The management of glaucoma therapy to reduce intraocular pressure commonly consists of a gradual approach with local monotherapy, combined therapy, laser surgery and finally filtration surgery. The local side effects of glaucoma medications and the lack of adherence and persistence to the medical therapy as well as the complication profile of the established glaucoma surgical techniques justify the introduction of new surgical procedures. Micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) is a promising new surgical approach...

Frank Sachers, David Goldblum
BACKGROUND: Capsulorhexis is one of the most important steps in cataract surgery. Good centration, circular overlap in sufficient size and a circular edge without tears result in good centration of the intraocular lens (IOL). In this study, the capsulorhexis results of an experienced surgeon are compared with reported data in femtolaser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: 105 consecutive operations were photographically documented; in 81 cases size and overlap were analysed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND OBJECTIVES: The past decade has witnessed a rapid expansion of photobiomodulation (PBM), demonstrating encouraging results for the treatment of cutaneous disorders. Confidence in this approach, however, is impaired not only by a lack of understanding of the light-triggered molecular cascades but also by the significant inconsistency in published experimental outcomes, design of the studies and applied optical parameters. This study aimed at characterizing the response of human dermal fibroblast subpopulations to visible and near-infrared (NIR) light in an attempt to identify the optical treatment parameters with high potential to address deficits in aging skin and non-healing chronic wounds...

Coats disease is a sporadic, chronic retinal vascular disorder with telangiectatic and aneurysmal retinal vessels, with retinal exudation and retinal detachment in severe cases. Various treatment modalities have been used, including laser therapy, cryotherapy, anti‒vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy, and surgery. Anti-VEGF therapy seems to be effective in reducing exudative changes and is often combined with other treatment modalities. For severe cases with exudative retinal detachment, external drainage of subretinal fluid with or without vitrectomy is commonly performed, combined with laser therapy and/or cryotherapy...
