Ulceras corneales

The purpose of this study is to analyze clinical experience about the effects of human amniotic membrane transplantation in eyes with neurotrophic ulcers. In 11 eyes the application of amniotic membrane was performed since January 1999 because of neurotrophic ulcers. The follow up period was longer than 12 months: 19.7+/-6.0 months. The average healing period after the surgery was 1.6+/-0.6 weeks. All corneas were fluorescein negative even 12 months after operation. Visual acuity after the transplantation was similar to the one before the surgery in 8 eyes...

BACKGROUND: Corneal melting is a serious condition and in many cases maybe managed only by surgery. UV-radiation with Riboflavin is a new method that may stop the melting process of the cornea. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Four patients suffering from melting ulcera of the cornea of various origin underwent a single UV-radiation. Two ultraviolet diodes were used emitting light with an wavelength of 370 nm with an energy of 2.5 mW/cm2. The radiation time was 30 minutes. Before he radiation was performed 2-3 drops of 0...

BACKGROUND: Non-penetrating injuries of the cornea are frequent. Complications like corneal infiltrations, or corneal ulcera, may follow. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This prospective study included 144 patients with non-penetrating corneal injuries. Records contained epidemiological data, field of activity, profession, cause of the injury, and stress during the trauma. RESULTS: 97% of the patients were men, 78% of the injuries occurred during working hours, 41% of the patients were from metal working professions, 73% of the accidents happened with grinding machines and drilling machines...

We report about two patients who developed neuroparalytic ulcera in the eye two months after cyclocryocoagulation due to secondary glaucoma after intraocular lens implantation. In the first patient, explantation of an anterior chamber lens and implantation of a posterior chamber lens was performed because of development of Irvine-Gass Syndrome after cataract operation. The second patient developed secondary glaucoma after cataract operation with implantation of an anterior chamber lens followed by trabeculectomy...

Corneal ulcera in patients treated at the University Hospital Cali, Colombia have been attributed to the fungus Fusarium solani, which was isolated from patients' eyes by deep scraping. The fungus, which was characterized by culture and morphology, was found to grow well at 37 degrees C in Sabouraud and potato dextrose agars and in liquid asparagine medium, in which it produced very few spores; at 40 degrees C, it survived for 3 weeks. Different levels of pathogenicity were shown by the fungus when 3-week-old bean, corn, and tomato plants were inoculated...

The Hyperimmunoglobulinemia-E-Syndrome (HIE) is characterized by high levels of serum-IgE, diminished counts of T-suppressor-cells, eosinophilia, and disturbed chemotactic functions of neutrophil granulocytes. An 8 years old female, suffering from hyperimmunoglobulinemia E (HIE), showed marginal corneal ulcera since five years. Positive conjunctival smears included several bacterias and chlamydia, but never local herpes virus. Inspite of treatment by antibiotics, virostatica, and therapeutical contact lens, a spontaneous corneal perforation occurred...

The authors report on clinical experiences with the topical application of the synthetic hormone Nandrolon (Keratyl) in diseases of the cornea caused by exogenic, neurogenic, and combined exogenic-endogenic factors. In all cases a positive regenerative effect on epithelium and stroma of the cornea seemed to exist. The present results seem to allow the following range of indications: 1. injuries of the epithelial tissue; 2. ulcera of the cornea (combined with antibiotics); 3. dystrophic diseases of the cornea; 4...
