BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to determine the role of postoperative antibiotics in reducing complications in patients undergoing appendectomy for complicated appendicitis. METHODS: We performed a 5-year retrospective cohort study of adult patients who underwent appendectomy for acute appendicitis. Patients with complicated appendicitis (perforated or gangrenous) were analyzed on the basis of whether they received postoperative antibiotics. Main outcome measures were wound complications, length of stay (LOS), and readmission to hospital...

PURPOSE: To compare refractive outcomes, contrast sensitivity, higher-order aberrations (HOAs), and patient satisfaction after photorefractive keratectomy for correction of moderate myopia with two methods: tissue saving versus wavefront optimized. METHODS: In this prospective, comparative study, 152 eyes (80 patients) with moderate myopia with and without astigmatism were randomly divided into two groups: the tissue-saving group (Technolas 217z Zyoptix laser; Bausch & Lomb, Rochester, NY) (76 eyes of 39 patients) or the wavefront-optimized group (WaveLight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser; Alcon Laboratories, Inc...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of prostaglandin analog eyedrops on the periorbital soft tissue using high-resolution ultrasonography. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, the authors included patients with bilateral glaucoma on unilateral prostaglandin therapy for the past 12 or more contiguous months. High-resolution ultrasonography was performed bilaterally on the upper and lower eyelids of each subject to measure thicknesses of dermis, orbicularis oculi muscle, and skin to arcus marginalis distance...

Orbital lymphaticovenous malformations consist of abnormal vascular channels lined by endothelial cells with a spectrum from venous to lymphatic characteristics. They may be venous-dominant or lymphatic-dominant. These lesions continue to present management challenges. Total excision or obliteration is not always achievable, recrudescence is common, and interventions carry a risk of damaging normal structures. Patients likely benefit most from a multidisciplinary approach, including both surgical and nonsurgical (e...

PURPOSE: To study angular and temporal vein engorgement following periorbital hyaluronic acid gel (HAG) injection. METHODS: In this retrospective study, the authors reviewed the photographs of 805 patients who had periorbital HAG injection at Jules Stein Eye Institute Oculoplastic Clinic between January 2004 and January 2014. HAG injections were used to fill the orbital hollow, zygomatic hollow, septal confluence hollow, and cheek. The inclusion criteria were patients who had at least 1 pre-, immediate post-, and late postinjection photographs...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the surgical technique and outcomes of implantation of a glaucoma drainage device (GDD) at the time of Boston type I keratoprosthesis (KPro) procedure. METHODS: Consecutive cases of combined GDD and KPro surgery performed between January 2005 and January 2011 with at least 6 months of follow-up were reviewed. Outcome measures included visual acuity, number of glaucoma medications, and complications. RESULTS: Twenty-nine eyes (29 patients) underwent combined GDD and KPro surgery...

PURPOSE: To review indications and clinical outcomes in a series of orbitocranial tumors treated surgically through a transorbital extradural approach without craniotomy. METHODS: In this retrospective case series, all patients who underwent surgery through a transorbital extradural approach without craniotomy for benign orbitocranial tumors involving the dura or extending into the anterior or middle cranial fossae were analyzed. RESULTS: Twenty-seven patients (20 females and 7 males) were included...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of cataract surgery and yellow-tinted intraocular lens (IOLs) implantation on perimetry indices of short-wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP) and standard automated perimetry (SAP) testing in patients with coexisting cataract and glaucoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective comparative case series, phacoemulsification with implantation of yellow-tinted Acrysof Natural IOL was performed in 16 eyes of 16 patients with visually significant cataract (best-corrected visual acuity (VA) better than 20/120) and mild to moderate glaucoma...

PURPOSE: To compare corneal stromal and endothelial cells after photorefractive keratectomy with intraoperative mitomycin C in alcohol-assisted versus mechanical epithelial debridement using confocal microscopy. METHODS: This prospective randomized comparative study was performed on 88 eyes (44 patients) with myopia up to -6.00 diopters. The right eye of each patient was randomly assigned to either mechanical or alcohol-assisted groups, and the left eye was assigned to the alternate group...

PURPOSE: To determine inter-device agreement for central corneal thickness (CCT) measurement among ultrasound pachymetry, rotating Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam, Oculus, Wetzlar, Germany), and scanning slit corneal topography (Orbscan II, Bausch & Lomb, Rochester, NY, USA) in highly myopic eyes before and after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). METHODS: This prospective comparative study included 61 eyes of 32 patients with high myopia who underwent PRK. Six month postoperative CCT values were compared to preoperative values in 27 patients (51 eyes) who completed the follow up period...

To present our experience of removing middle to deep orbital tumors using a combination of minimally invasive soft tissue approaches, sometimes under local anesthesia. Methods. In this retrospective case series, 30 patients (13 males and 17 females) underwent tumor removal through eyelid crease (17 eyes), conjunctival (nine eyes), lateral canthal (two eyes), and transcaruncular (two eyes) approaches. All tumors were located in the posterior half of the orbit. Six cases were removed under monitored anesthesia care with local block, and 24 were under general anesthesia...

Graft versus host disease (GVHD) is a common complication of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT). Ocular GVHD develops in approximately 40-60% of patients following allo-SCT and its most common clinical manifestations include keratoconjunctivitis sicca and cicatricial conjunctivitis. Ocular GVHD may lead to severe ocular surface disease, which can significantly diminish quality of life and restrict daily activities. It is thus important to monitor the condition closely since with timely diagnosis, irreversible damage can be avoided...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of ganglion cell layer/inner plexiform layer (GCL/IPL) measurements with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (Cirrus HD-OCT) for detection of early glaucoma and to compare results to retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measurements. DESIGN: Cross-sectional prospective diagnostic study. METHODS: We enrolled 99 subjects, including 59 eyes with glaucoma (47 subjects) (mean deviation >-6.0 dB) and 91 normal eyes (52 subjects)...

Pediatric glaucoma is potentially a blinding disease. Although goniotomy and trabeculotomy are associated with good early success rates, eventually 20% of these procedures fail and many children will require additional surgery to control the IOP in the long-term. In this review, we reported that adequate IOP control can be achieved with the placement of Ahmed glaucoma valve and can last 5 or more years. However, most patients will need one or more glaucoma medications at some point after surgery. In addition, the implants may be associated with pupillary irregularities, lenticular opacification as well as tube-related complications, particularly in the first year of life, as the globe is enlarging with age...

PURPOSE: To report a novel method for measuring the vertical tilt angle of the optic nerve (ON) head and to investigate the associated factors. DESIGN: Cross-sectional diagnostic study. METHODS: One hundred and twelve normal, glaucomatous, and glaucoma suspect eyes (99 patients) were enrolled in this study. Subjects underwent a full eye examination, biometry, and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT). The vertical tilt angle was measured on high-resolution cross-sectional SDOCT images passing through the ON head and foveal centers using the inner edges of the Bruch membrane opening as the reference plane...

The National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire 25 (NEI-VFQ-25) is the most commonly used patient-reported outcome measure to assess vision-related quality of life in patients with glaucoma. Glaucoma negatively affects the composite and several NEI-VFQ subscale scores; this effect is correlated with the severity of glaucomatous visual field loss. Contrast sensitivity, glare, and dark adaptation are potential items that could be added to the NEI-VFQ to make it more responsive to changes in vision-related quality of life in patients with glaucoma...
