Dilate or not in subconjunctival haemorrhage?

There is often surprisingly little evidence in common clinical conditions. Spontaneous non-traumatic subconjunctival haemorrhage (SCH) is frequently encountered in emergency and walk-in clinic visits. In some centres, a dilated fundus exam is performed to exclude retinal pathology. This retrospective study...

Acute management of retrobulbar haemorrhage

The authors discuss the importance of rapid diagnosis and correct management of acute RBH presentation to avoid the risk of permanent blindness. Retrobulbar haemorrhage (RBH) is an ocular emergency that occurs due to arterial bleeding in the orbital cavity behind...

Identification and diagnosis of thalamic haemorrhage

This paper presents a case of thalamic haemorrhage and discusses clinical findings, providing valuable insight into signs clinicians need to look for. The case presented is of a 76-year-old female who developed left hemiplegia and hemi anaesthesia. Ocular motility testing...

A novel approach to suprachoroidal haemorrhage drainage

The authors describe a novel surgical technique for external drainage of choroidal detachment / suprachoroidal haemorrhage with a butterfly needle. Six eyes with serous and / or haemorrhagic choroidal detachments (five from complicated cataract surgery with vitreous loss, one globe...

Risk of intraocular haemorrhage with new oral anticoagulants

The authors conducted a study to assess the risk of intraocular haemorrhage with warfarin dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban. All reported cases of intraocular haemorrhage (vitreous, choroidal, or retinal) with warfarin and new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) (including dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban) from the...

Early intraocular complications of aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage

The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence of a whole spectrum of early intraocular complications in patients suffering from aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and to identify factors that are potentially associated with these fundus findings. In total...

Association of subconjunctival haemorrhage with non-accidental injury

This study assessed the frequency and nature of diagnostic work-ups in infants with subconjunctival haemorrhage (SCH), the incidence of occult injuries among these patients and the factors that may have influenced the work-up. This was a retrospective secondary analysis of...

Warfarin Induced Suprachoroidal Haemorrhage Presenting as Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

Spontaneous suprachoroidal haemorrhage is a rare but recognised entity. Anticoagulant therapy is a well known risk factor. We describe a case of warfarin induced suprachoroidal haemorrhage presenting as acute angle closure glaucoma in a patient with raised International Normalised Ratio...

Single case report of horizontal gaze paresis due to medial pontine haemorrhage

The authors report a single case (80-year-old female) of bilateral horizontal conjugate gaze palsy due to a dorsal median pontine haemorrhage. The patient presented with skew deviation, bilateral horizontal conjugate gaze palsy, vertical gaze palsy, ipsilateral lower motor neuron facial...

Does intravitreal bevacizumab help in diabetic retinopathy related vitreous haemorrhage?

This retrospective, interventional case series, aimed to assess the effectiveness of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) in vitreous haemorrhage secondary to proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The primary outcome was the rate of vitrectomy (PPV) after IVB, with secondary outcomes the number of IVB...

Non-accidental retinal haemorrhages

The authors sought to determine whether the presence of retinal haemorrhages (RH) correlated positively to individuals who confessed to shaking (group a) compared to those who did not confess but were identified as the likely perpetrators (group b) and cases...

Significant associations to presence of significant retinal haemorrhages in suspected child abuse

The authors aimed to extract statistically significant associations between non-ocular clinical and diagnostic imaging findings and the presence of significant retinal haemorrhages, and then develop an evidence-based screening algorithm to determine when to consult an ophthalmologist in suspected child abuse...
