Computer-assisted surgery in the orbit

In this paper the authors describe the growing use of computer-assisted surgery in ophthalmology. It is already described as a powerful adjunct in neurosurgery and sinus surgery and here they describe their experience of using it for the orbit; specifically...

Complications of limbal stay sutures

There is limited literature describing complications at the limbal suture site. The authors describe two cases with postoperative complications due to use of intraoperative limbal stay sutures. Each case had strabismus surgery at other centres but with presentation to the...

Factors associated with seeking delayed strabismus surgery

The purpose of this study was to investigate the main reasons for delay in strabismus surgery and assess patients’ motivations to undergo strabismus surgery in adulthood. This was a prospective study in the Republic of Moldova of 91 patients with...

OCT findings after strabismus surgery for macular, choroidal and nerve fibre thickness

This study used OCT to investigate the changes in the central macular thickness, subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) and retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) after horizontal rectus surgery for patients with strabismus. This was a retrospective study and patients were grouped...

Corneal dellen following strabismus surgery

This study aimed to evaluate the frequency of corneal dellen (CD) development, the healing process and associated factors that affect the development and healing of CD formation after strabismus surgery. This study retrospectively reviewed 1264 eyes of 714 patients from...

ISBCS versus DSBCS

This is a retrospective study of 53 children who had immediate sequential bilateral cataract surgery (ISBCS) (37/53) or delayed sequential bilateral cataract surgery (DSBCS) (16/53) at a tertiary referral paediatric hospital in Toronto, Canada. Clear visual axis was the measure...

Air tamponade in pars plana vitrectomy for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment repair

The authors report a study aimed to establish the use of air as a tamponade agent for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) treatment, regardless of the position or the number of retinal breaks. Two hundred and thirty-six eyes of 230...

Diplopia after cataract surgery – risk factors

The risk factors for binocular diplopia after uncomplicated cataract surgery in adults were studied to analyse the patterns of ocular motility and clinical causes. This was a retrospective review of 40 patients; 25 female. Onset of diplopia was at a...

Outcomes of horizontal muscle transplantation

The authors propose the technique of transplantation of the resected muscle segment to the previously recessed muscle for correction of residual / recurrent strabismus in order to restrict surgery to one eye and avoid large recession of previously recessed rectus...

Care pathway for isolated orbital blowout fractures

The authors conducted a literature review to inform the development of a care pathway for the assessment and management of adult fractures, specifically isolated fractures not combined with facial or systemic injury. Assessments included a core of Hess chart, field...

Cystoid macular oedema following retinal detachment surgery

There are limited studies examining the incidence and risk factors for postoperative cystoid macular oedema (CMO) following rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair. Postoperative CMO is thought to be due to pro-inflammatory state, where numerous cytokines lead to tight junction dysfunction,...

Factors influencing the outcome of GT and TBT in PCG

This is a retrospective study between 2013 to 2016 of 452 eyes of patients </=12 years with primary congenital glaucoma (PCG), who underwent either goniotomy (GT) (median age: six months, 120 eyes) or trabeculotomy (TBT) (median age: 5.2 months, 332...
