Factors leading to loss to follow-up after strabismus surgery in children.

One hundred and fourteen patients were identified as lost to follow-up between 2014 and 2020, representing 16% of paediatric strabismus surgery performed during this time period. The authors specifically defined lost to follow-up as not attending follow-up appointments between three...

Accuracy of ASOCT muscle insertion measurements

Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) is a non-contact imaging method that can provide accurate measures of extraocular muscles to limbus insertion distances. The authors evaluated the accuracy of ASOCT for locating horizontal extraocular muscle insertions after strabismus surgery in...

Use of pattern-reversal VEP in congenital Zika syndrome (CZS) assessment

The authors conducted pattern reversal visual evoked potential (PRVEP) in children with congenital Zika syndrome (CZS) and report the correlates with visual acuity, fundus alterations and severity of microcephaly at birth. This was a cross-sectional study of 37 children with...

Paediatric emergency presentations in an urban centre

Surgical outcomes for constant and intermittent exotropia

This study evaluated the surgical results for constant and intermittent exotropia to investigate the factors that might influence the surgical results in a Scandinavian population. This was a retrospective study from 2011-2015 during which time 633 patients had strabismus surgery...

Successful laceration repair with the Mini Monoka stent

The aim of this study was to evaluate demographic data, clinical profile and factors responsible for success of anatomical and functional outcome of canalicular laceration repair with the Mini Monoka stent in children younger than 10 years. This was a...

Comparing visual acuity to visual demand levels in classrooms

This study investigated the actual logMAR and contrast sensitivity demands in a cross-sectional sample of kindergarten through grade 12 classrooms in New York city. This was done to consider the potential benefit in optimising the specificity of visual acuity-based screening...

ROPScore for detection of any and severe ROP

ROPScore is a free tool consisting of a logistic regression equation to calculate the risk per child and calculated one time per infant at six weeks of life. It helps to predict severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). This study aimed...

Accuracy of AS-OCT muscle insertion measurements

Anterior segment - optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) is a non-contact imaging method that can provide accurate measures of extraocular muscles to limbus insertion distances. The authors evaluated the accuracy of AS-OCT for locating horizontal extraocular muscle insertions after strabismus surgery...

BT for retinal detachment strabismus (2020)

The authors report updated experience on factors influencing botulinum toxin (BT) outcomes for strabismus following retinal detachment surgery. This was a retrospective review of 32 patients with follow-up of 20 months (1-132). Mean age at BT injection was 44 years...

Rectus muscle insertion shift at surgery

The authors conducted this study to evaluate the shift in rectus muscle insertion when the muscle is disinserted from the globe but before it is recessed and / or transposed. They measured the amount of central rectus muscle insertion shift...

Defining of a successful surgery for different types of strabismus

The authors present the results of a Delphi study, following on from their previous work which defined successful general outcomes for strabismus surgery. This study aimed to define success outcomes for specific types of strabismus. Twenty-five experts were involved in...
