Witkin and coauthors successfully used a new surgical technique in 4 patients who developed choroidal detachments during 23-gauge vitrectomy after the infusion cannula was accidentally partially disinserted. After reestablishing infusion into the vitreous cavity, the partially disinserted cannula was left in position and was used to immediately drain the intraoperative choroidal detachment.
Kang and coauthors describe their technique of argon laser iridoplasty used to correct iris obstruction that sometimes occurs after Boston keratoprosthesis implantation.
Rajendram et al report the 2-year outcomes of the prospective BOLT study evaluating intravitreous bevacizumab and modified Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study macular laser therapy in patients with persistent clinically significant macular edema.
Roberts et al examine peripapillary choroidal thickness in healthy controls and in patients with glaucoma who have focal, diffuse, and sclerotic optic disc damage.
In a tertiary referral centerbased cross-sectional study, Jaouni et al evaluate if adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy and butterfly-shaped pigment dystrophy are associated with risk single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for age-related macular degeneration.
In a retrospective anaysis of at-risk infants from 10 neonatal intensive care units, Wu and coauthors assess the utility of an algorithm using postnatal weight measurements as a tool for the prediction of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).
In a retrospective review, Hu et al report late reactivation and progression of retinopathy of prematurity after intravitreal bevacizumab monotherapy.
Avisar and coworkers conducted a retrospective review of 9 patients with misdirection of tears related to upper-eyelid dermatochalasis to describe the clinical features and outcomes.
To determine whether leukotriene B4 (LTB4) production has a role in the generation of inflammation in ocular surface disease, Sahin and colleagues tested the hypotheses that arachidonic acid duplicates the stimulatory effect of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), LPS-binding protein potentiates LPS-induced LTB4 secretion, and dihydrotestosterone attenuates the immune effect of LPS.
Klein and coauthors describe the relationship of blood pressure (BP), antihypertensive medication use, and other factors to serial measurements of retinal arteriolar diameters over time in the Beaver Dam Eye Study
To characterize the traits of low vision patients, Goldstein and coauthors performed a prospective, observational study of 764 new low vision patients seeking outpatient low vision rehabilitation services from 28 clinical centers in the United States.
van de Ven and coauthors examined 21 probands with basal laminar drusen (BLD) to identify novel complement factor H gene (CFH) mutations and specify the clinical characteristics to elucidate the clinical phenotype.
Brodsky presents evidence that the accessory optic system is uniquely suited to provide an innervational substrate for visuovestibular eye movements in humans with infantile strabismus. See the editorial by Tyschsen.
