OCT-A imaging in Grave’s orbitopathy and orbital decompression

In this case series of 12 patients and 24 orbits, the authors describe the changes in the optic nerve and peripapillary blood vessel density in patients with moderate to severe Grave’s Orbitopathy (GO) undergoing orbital decompression. The patients undergoing orbital...

Colour Doppler imaging before and after orbital decompression in thyroid eye disease

In this prospective, uncontrolled study euthyroid patients with moderate to severe inactive thyroid eye disease underwent colour Doppler imaging before and after orbital decompression. Patients with dysthyroid optic neuropathy, corneal breakdown, systemic disease (diabetes, cerebrovascular accident, cardiovascular and peripheral vascular...

IgG4 related orbital disease

This retrospective study was done to determine the prevalence of IgG4 related orbital disease (IgG4ROD) in patients who previously had biopsies for suspected idiopathic orbital inflammatory disease (IOID) and / or orbital lymphoproliferative disease (OLD). The charts and slides of...

Managing orbital compartment syndrome

This experimental study using cadaveric models was done to evaluate the surgical technique effective in relieving orbital compartment syndrome. Twelve cadaveric orbits were injected with blood analogue stained with fluorescein. Pressure probes were inserted in superotemporal (advanced 40mm into orbit)...

Orbital abscess following posterior subtenon steroid injection
