For health patients, cataract surgery is a quick procedure that can take less than an hour. Recovery time is a bit longer. The good news is that most cataract surgery patients have a good outcome and report better vision once the healing is complete. It just takes a bit of time between surgery and complete recovery. Let's look at what that entails.
Angioplasty procedure (Rough Draft) In 1977, Dr. Andreas Gruentzig who is a German cardiologist began a revolution in the treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) by performing the first angioplasty procedure as an alternative for bypass procedure1. Angioplasty or Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) is a non-surgical procedure that is used to open blocked or narrowed blood vessels due to the buildup of plaque, a condition called atherosclerosis, it mechanically enhances the flow of the blood to the heart. Also, angioplasty improves the symptoms of CAD, such as chest pain ( angina ) and short breath. Moreover, PCI is used to rapidly open a blocked artery during a heart attack to minimize the damage to the heart.
CANTHOPLASTY – MAKE THE EYES LOOK BIGGER AND BRIGHTER Canthoplasty is a surgical procedure used to help create an upward slant in the outer corner of the eyelid or correct a drooping appearance in this portion of the eye. Canthoplasty is used to create the much sought after cat eye look with an upwardly slanted outer eyelid corner. It makes drowsy eyes, caused by inner canthus covered with skin or too wide space between the eyes, clearer, bigger and longer. For those who have short length of the eye, lateral epicanthoplasty will be operated together for clearer and brighter eyes. Removing inner wrinkle of the eye makes it look wide which is in between the eyes, by finding a few hidden millimeter inside the eye, then the eyes look bigger and brighter.
INTRODUCTION Keratoconjunctivitis sicca commonly known as dry eye disease is defined as a multifactor disease that affect the tears and surface of the eye which yields to discomfort, disturbances in vision and unstable tear film that causes tremendous damage to the surface of the eye, followed by increment in the osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation on the ocular structures involved . Physiologically the tear film is made up of a lipid, aqueous and mucin layer. The lipid layer is produced by meibomian and other glands; aqueous layer is secreted by lacrimal gland, accessory gland, conjunctival and corneal epithelium; and mucin layer is produced by the goblet cells of the conjunctiva. These structures are the main targets for dry-eye
At the beginning of this case study, a woman in her forties presented with symptoms of dry eye alongside numerous dysfunctions in her right side facial movement and sensation. The dry eye symptoms were causing her discomfort and the facial dysfunction consisted of an extended time between blinks, incomplete right eye closure, forehead smoothing and drooping of her mouth. When evaluating this patient’s symptoms, it seems that the problems relating to dry eye are very likely secondary to the facial dysfunction that is visibly apparent. Specifically the fact that the patient has reduced blinking activity and is suffering from lagophthalmos, incomplete eyelid closure, would lead to a deterioration and lack of replenishment of the tear film layer
The plan of management was to admit the patient with the following treatment: preservative-free artificial tear drops every 1 hour, erythromycin eye ointment every 2 hours, moxifloxacin eye drops every four hours, Tobradex eye drop ( tobramycin + dexamethasone 0.1%) every 6 hours & cyclopentolate eye drops every 8
In this procedure that is performed by ophthalmologist. Eye lid held open by a lid speculum. Then the surgeon make an incision on the conjunction (the tissue membrane on surface of the eye), so the surgeon access to muscles of the eye, if it is recession plan, a suture is done in part of the muscle and it is removed from its connection to the eye and then reattach about half inch move back to the eye by stitch will absorbed. In a resection or strengthening procedure, half inch piece of muscle is removed and the muscle is reattached at its original location. Therefore after surgery the eye can be straighter. Strabismus surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and it does not necessary to an overnight hospital stay.
After treatment, addition, new blood vessels may develop. The photodynamic therapy also aims to destroy the fragile blood vessels, but this is achieved by injecting a drug that adheres to the surface of said vessel, and subsequently illuminating the eye with a light that activates the drug. The activated drug destroys blood vessels only, without affecting healthy tissues. This treatment does not restore lost vision, but retards the progress of the disease.
While a surgeon might be very good at their work, if using these robots is new to him, the probability of making some mistakes during the procedure is relatively high. A surgeon experienced with using these robots is the greatest assurance you can get when preparing for an operation. The Future of Robotic Surgery Just last month, John, a 59-year-old man in Auckland, New Zealand became the first man in that country to undergo a specialized robotic surgery. The man, who was diagnosed with oral cancer last July, decided to undergo a robotic surgery because he believed it would be more accurate in removing the tumor and that he would have a shorter recovery time.
Following successful studies using TB-500 by researchers at Wayne State University School of Medicine to together with the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit, Michigan, RegeneRx Biopharmaceuticals, Inc published the results of this study which showed that thymosin beta 4 was an active corneal wound healing and anti-inflammatory agent Thymosin beta 4 is a protein that naturally occurs in all cells except in erythrocytes. Despite this protein being a key monomeric actin-sequestering peptide within cells and with ability to depolymerize F-actin, studies are showing that it has several diverse cellular functions. In this particular study, the researchers investigated the multiple mechanisms of action associated with Thymosin beta 4 and the role it
Surgical removal of the tumor is warranted and surgeons take advantage of the physiological gap between the hemispheres of the brain to gain access to the tumor and remove it. Another less invasive approach is the use of laser generated stereotactic thermo-ablation, which uses light energy to destroy the tumor and surrounding damaged tissue. Likewise, a gamma knife may be used to
We include into the torn pterygium a little of the clear corneal epithelium lying beyond the pterygium cap. It is important during the process to get the correct plane of cleavage, and maintain a good grip along the whole width of the pterygium. (Figures 1 a-d). Any remnant / a tag of tissue left over the cornea is scraped off using No 15 Bard Parker knife or simply pulled off with McPherson forceps. This method
