Sclerotomy suturing

This was a retrospective review of 589 consecutive cases of patients who underwent 23-gauge tranconjunctival pars plana vitrectomy. Cases were split into Type 1 vitrectomies (macular hole, ERM and simple vitreous haemorrhages) and Type 2 cases which were more complex...

Video Atlas of Ophthalmic Suturing Fundamentals and Techniques

Good suturing technique is a fundamental requirement of all surgeons. With the advent of modern minimal suturing and sutureless techniques, junior doctors have less exposure and hence less experience with suturing skills. Good microsurgical suturing skills can only be mastered...

Use of a smartphone repair microscope for microsurgical suturing simulation

Suturing ocular tissues under microscopic guidance is a skill that has declined in frequency, with the majority of cataract operations being sutureless. With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, training opportunities in theatre have declined further, given elective surgery cancellations. Subsequently, trainees...

A new technique for correction of medial ectropion with a lax medial canthal tendon

This is a prospective study of a new technique for repair of medial ectropion associated with medial canthal tendon (MCT) laxity. The procedure was performed on 79 eyes and involved excision of an ellipse of tissue from below the punctum...

IO surgery

The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the efficacy of a new surgical technique in reducing inferior oblique muscle overaction (IOOA) consisting of suturing the muscle to the sclera at the Gobin point with tendon sparing and using a...

Simulated ocular surgery – strabismus surgery

See also Simulated ocular surgery and Simulated ocular surgery: pars plane vitrectomy and scleral buckling surgery Strabismus surgery requires a range of skills, distinct to those required for intraocular surgery. Even if a trainee does not plan to become a...

SS-MIOCT for suture depth

The authors describe a case in which swept-source microscope-integrated OCT (SS-MIOCT) was used to directly visualise and evaluate key suturing-related steps of strabismus surgery in real time. Using SS-MIOCT, the surgeons could visualise the precise depth of the needle through...

Amniotic membrane transplantation for SJS/TEN

This is a retrospective study of consecutive patients who underwent amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) in the acute stage of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) / toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) from Toronto, Canada, between 2009 and 2018 and had more than three months...

Supranuclear palsy

This paper reports the results of surgery for supranuclear monocular elevation deficiency. Contralateral superior rectus maximal recession was undertaken without interfering with the superior oblique tendon position, transection of the superior oblique to the superior rectus frenulum and directly suturing...

MicroRNA inhibits corneal neovascularisation

MicroRNAs (miR) are small non-coding RNA that target mRNA for destruction. MiR target about 30% of the protein coding genes and fine tune their expression. MiR have been shown to be involved in several cellular processes including cell cycle, tissue...

Liquid adhesive bandage for clear corneal cataract incisions

This paper reports a prospective randomised controlled trial of patients undergoing routine phacoemulsification with a 2.75mm clear corneal incision and followed up for 14 days postoperatively. They evaluated wound edge closure, surgically induced astigmatism and foreign body sensation after use...

IO belly transposition surgery

The authors evaluated inferior oblique (IO) muscle belly transposition to correct mild to moderate IO overaction with small primary position hypertropia. They reviewed 10 patients aged 6-35 years (mean 18.6 years). Aetiologies were mild unilateral superior oblique (SO) palsy for...
