Histopathology showed retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and choriocapillaris loss, elastic fibre degeneration, calcium deposition, active choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) and vascular endothelial growth...

Recession and resection surgery in TED

The aim was to investigate changes in ocular ductions in thyroid eye disease (TED) patients undergoing recession in comparison to recession / resection surgery. This was a retrospective study of 119 patients with inclusion of 102 eyes in final analysis....

Vertical angle surgical outcomes

The surgical results of all patients undergoing isolated adjustable suture vertical squint surgery for thyroid eye disease are presented for a single centre over five years to explore the predictive factors for surgical planning. This was a retrospective study in...

Visual field changes in thyroid eye disease (TED)

This study is a retrospective non- comparative review of visual field (VF) tests in patients with compressive optic neuropathy from thyroid eye disease (TED-CON). Ninety-six visual fields in 68 patients were included in the study and a two-step analysis of...

Extraocular muscle disinsertion outcomes for large angle strabismus

The authors present a case series of patients who underwent surgical extraocular muscle (EOM) disinsertion for severe cranial nerve palsy or thyroid eye disease including 12 patients (13 eyes: 10 male, three female). There was one bilateral case – bilateral...

Thyroid recession drift

The authors investigated patients with thyroid ophthalmopathy (TO) who underwent unilateral inferior rectus recession for hypotropia with or without adjustable sutures to determine extent of postoperative surgical alignment. Group A comprised 13 TO patients with inferior rectus recession with adjustable...

Teprotumumab for chronic TED
