Retarded growth and deficits in the enteric and parasympathetic nervous system in mice lacking GFR alpha2, a functional neurturin receptor. (1/222)

Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and a related protein, neurturin (NTN), require a GPI-linked coreceptor, either GFR alpha1 or GFR alpha2, for signaling via the transmembrane Ret tyrosine kinase. We show that mice lacking functional GFR alpha2 coreceptor (Gfra2-/-) are viable and fertile but have dry eyes and grow poorly after weaning, presumably due to malnutrition. While the sympathetic innervation appeared normal, the parasympathetic cholinergic innervation was almost absent in the lacrimal and salivary glands and severely reduced in the small bowel. Neurite outgrowth and trophic effects of NTN at low concentrations were lacking in Gfra2-/- trigeminal neurons in vitro, whereas responses to GDNF were similar between the genotypes. Thus, GFR alpha2 is a physiological NTN receptor, essential for the development of specific postganglionic parasympathetic neurons.  (+info)

Congenital myasthenia gravis: clinical and HLA studies in two brothers. (2/222)

Two brothers with congenital myasthenia gravis are described. In both, ptosis and ophthalmoplegia responded poorly to oral anticholinesterase therapy and to thymectomy. The brothers had two different HLA haplotypes and neither had the HLA-A1-B8-DW3 haplotypes which are commonly associated with myathenia gravis in adult-onset cases.  (+info)

Results following treatment of third cranial nerve palsy in children. (3/222)

PURPOSE: To investigate the etiology, sensory, motor, and cosmetic results of treatment for oculomotor (CNIII) palsy in children. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of the clinical records of children with a diagnosis of CNIII palsy who were followed up in our practice between 1981 and 1996. RESULTS: During the 15-year period, 49 children with 53 affected eyes were followed for a mean of 5.5 years. CNIII palsy was congenital in one third of cases and secondary to postnatal trauma in another third. Thirty-three of the eyes were affected before visual maturation (age 8 years) and 27 eyes developed amblyopia. None of the 6 eyes with amblyopia in which visual acuity could be quantitated had measurable improvement of Snellen acuity after treatment. Overall, visual acuity was between 6/5 and 6/12 at the last follow-up visit in 56% of affected eyes. Ocular alignment was greatly improved after recess-resect procedures on the horizontal rectus muscles, but binocular function was difficult to preserve or restore. Blepharoptosis improved after levator palpebrae muscle resection or eyelid suspension procedures. CONCLUSIONS: CNIII palsy may undergo partial resolution in children, but surgical treatment is frequently necessary. Although surgery can result in cosmetically acceptable alignment of the eyes, it rarely results in restoration or achievement of binocular function. Multiple procedures are often necessary to maintain good ocular alignment. Several surgical procedures may be needed to correct related blepharoptosis and maintain an acceptable eyelid position. Treatment of amblyopia is only effective in maintaining the level of visual acuity present at the onset of the CNIII palsy, and improvement in acuity is difficult to achieve.  (+info)

CFEOM3: a new extraocular congenital fibrosis syndrome that maps to 16q24.2-q24.3. (4/222)

PURPOSE: To define the clinical characteristics and determine the gene localization for a previously undescribed form of congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles (CFEOM), referred to as CFEOM type 3 (CFEOM3). METHODS: A large family with CFEOM was identified, and participating individuals underwent ophthalmologic examination and donated blood for genetic analysis. The family's disorder was tested for linkage to the known CFEOM loci, followed by a genome-wide search and linkage refinement using polymorphic DNA markers. RESULTS: Thirty-eight members of this Canadian family participated in the study. Affected individuals are born with a nonprogressive eye movement disorder characterized by variable expression of ptosis and restrictive external ophthalmoplegia. Severely affected individuals have ptosis, primary gaze fixed in a hypo- and exotropic position, and marked restriction of eye movement bilaterally. Mildly affected individuals have normally positioned globes with a limitation of vertical gaze. Moderately affected individuals have asymmetrical involvement with one eye severely and one eye mildly affected. The disorder is autosomal dominant with variable expression and probable incomplete penetrance. Genetic analysis reveals linkage to markers on 16q24.2q24.3. A maximum lod score of 5.8 occurs at markers D16S3063 and D16S689, and the CFEOM3 disease gene is located within a 5.6-cM region flanked by D16S486 and D16S671. CONCLUSIONS: These data establish that CFEOM3 is a phenotypically variant and genotypically distinct form of CFEOM with linkage to chromosome 16qter. The authors have previously demonstrated that CFEOM1 results from a developmental absence of the superior division of the oculomotor nerve. The authors hypothesize that CFEOM3 results from a defect analogous to, but distinct from CFEOM1.  (+info)

Extraocular muscle responses to high dose intravenous methylprednisolone in myasthenia gravis. (5/222)

Three patients with generalised myasthenia gravis and three with ocular myasthenia gravis received two to five courses of high dose intravenous methylprednisolone because of the failure of standard immunomodulating therapies. Changes in myasthenic signs were assessed using a four step system for grading muscle weakness and fatiguability in 10 test items. Although a brief and modest amelioration was found from day 1 to day 2 after the initial infusion in two patients with generalised myasthenia gravis, all three experienced a prolonged phase of worsening followed by improvement before the next course. Conversely, for two of the patients with ocular myasthenia gravis, a transient but dramatic improvement of ptosis and ocular immobility was noted from 90 minutes to 5 hours after initiating the first infusion, followed by mild or no exacerbation. This 3 hour improvement may be related not only to possible differences in the neuromuscular junction, but also to corticosteroids unmasking the central adaptation for the peripheral ocular muscle weakness by increasing the acetylcholine release.  (+info)

Fine mapping suggests that the goat Polled Intersex Syndrome and the human Blepharophimosis Ptosis Epicanthus Syndrome map to a 100-kb homologous region. (6/222)

To clone the goat Polled Intersex Syndrome (PIS) gene(s), a chromosome walk was performed from six entry points at 1q43. This enabled 91 BACs to be recovered from a recently constructed goat BAC library. Six BAC contigs of goat chromosome 1q43 (ICC1-ICC6) were thus constructed covering altogether 4.5 Mb. A total of 37 microsatellite sequences were isolated from this 4.5-Mb region (16 in this study), of which 33 were genotyped and mapped. ICC3 (1500 kb) was shown by genetic analysis to encompass the PIS locus in a approximately 400-kb interval without recombinants detected in the resource families (293 informative meioses). A strong linkage disequilibrium was detected among unrelated animals with the two central markers of the region, suggesting a probable location for PIS in approximately 100 kb. High-resolution comparative mapping with human data shows that this DNA segment is the homolog of the human region associated with Blepharophimosis Ptosis Epicanthus inversus Syndrome (BPES) gene located in 3q23. This finding suggests that homologous gene(s) could be responsible for the pathologies observed in humans and goats.  (+info)

Blepharoptosis (blef-uh-rahp-TOH-sis) or ptosis (TOH-sis) is a drooping of the upper eyelid that may affect one or both eyes. The eyelid may droop only slightly or may droop enough to cover the pupil and block vision. Blepharoptosis can occur in adults or children. When present at birth, it is called congenital blepharoptosis, and is usually caused by poor development or weakness of the levator muscle that lifts the eyelid. If left untreated while a childs vision is developing, blepharoptosis can lead to amblyopia (lazy eye). In adults blepharoptosis is usually caused by aging, eye surgery, or disease affecting the levator muscle or its nerve. In both children and adults, blepharoptosis can be corrected with surgery.. ...
Purpose : To report the results and complications of frontalis suspension surgery using expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) for poor levator function blepharoptosis over a 2-year period. Methods : Retrospective chart review of all frontalis suspension surgeries performed by a single surgeon over 2-years. All procedures were performed using ePTFE of 2 or 3 mm width (Ptose-Up, FCI Ophthalmics). Surgeries were performed through an eyelid crease incision with a single pentagonal design involving suture fixation of material to the tarsal plate. The material was then tied in a square knot and buried just above the brow. Postoperative success was defined as upper margin reflex distance (MRD1) of 2.5 mm or more, a cosmetically acceptable eyelid contour, and lagophthalmos 1 mm or less. Complications included material breakage, granuloma formation, unacceptable contour, lagophthalmos and ptosis recurrence. Results : 22 frontalis suspension surgeries were performed in 15 patients (14 children and 1 ...

Ptosis is the medical term for drooping of the upper eyelid, a condition that may affect one or both eyes. Ptosis that is present since birth is called congenital ptosis.. The ptosis may be mild - in which the lid partially covers the pupil; or severe - in which the lid completely covers the pupil.. Children with significant ptosis may need to tilt their head back into a chin-up position, lift their eyelid with a finger, or raise their eyebrows in an effort to see from under their drooping eyelid(s).. While the cause of congenital ptosis is often unclear, the most common reason is improper development of the levator muscle. The levator muscle is the major muscle responsible for elevating the upper eyelid.. Children with congeital ptosis may also have amblyopia ("lazy eye"), strabismus (eyes that are not properly aligned or straight), refractive errors, astigmatism, or blurred vision. In addition, drooping of the eyelid may result in an undesired facial apperance.. Congenital ptosis is treated ...

Ptosis (pronounced toe-sis) is actually an abbreviation for the medical term blepharoptosis. Ptosis is a condition where one or both of the eyelids droop and obstruct vision. The cause may be anatomical, such as excessive skin (dermatochalasis) over the eyelids, traumatic, or neurological (damage to the third cranial nerve, myasthenia gravis, or Horners syndrome for example). Neoplasms (growths) and scarring can also cause ptosis to develop.

In cases of congenital ptosis, surgery is recommended sooner rather than later to prevent future vision issues. Most children born with ptosis have eye surgery around age five. For age-related ptosis, Dr. Linder can perform a simple plastic surgery procedure to raise your eyelid(s). This is an outpatient surgery that requires local or IV anesthesia and offers a quick recovery time. Eyelid surgery tends to have a relatively short recovery with positive results. Droopiness can be corrected quickly, with typically minimal scarring and a simple post-op lubricant regimen to prevent dryness. If ptosis is related to other underlying conditions, Dr. Linder will work with you and your medical team to determine the right next steps to cure existing conditions including eyelid droopiness. ...

The most obvious sign of ptosis is a drooping eyelid. Another sign is when the upper eyelid creases do not line up evenly with each other. A child with ptosis may tip their head back, lift up their chin, or raise their eyebrows to try to see better. Over time, these movements can cause head and neck problems.. Sometimes, a child born with ptosis can also have other eye-related problems. They can include eye movement issues, eye muscle disease, tumors (on the eyelid or elsewhere) and other problems.. Having ptosis puts a child at risk for vision problems. If the childs eyelid droops so much that it blocks vision, amblyopia (also called "lazy eye") can develop. One eye will have better vision than the other. A child with ptosis can also have astigmatism, where they see blurry images. The child may also develop misaligned (crossed) eyes.. Ophthalmologists consider the following factors when deciding the best way to treat ptosis in children:. ...
Ptosis (eyelid drooping) in infants and children is when the upper eyelid is lower than it should be. This may occur in one or both eyes. Eyelid drooping that occurs at birth or within the first year is called congenital ptosis.
What Causes Ptosis?. There are multiple possible causes of ptosis. A common cause is the weakening of the muscles that control the eyelid; this weakening can occur in the muscles of both adults and children.. In adults, ptosis tends to develop because a tendon that attaches to the levator muscle - that is, the key muscle involved in lifting the eyelid - is stretched and weakened to the point that it no longer effectively pulls on the muscle. In children, its a delayed development of some sort that usually results in the levator muscle being too weak to do its job effectively. No matter what the cause of ptosis is, however, patients eventually suffer from sagging in one or both eyelids.. While weakened muscles are the most common cause of ptosis, it can also develop for other reasons. Alternatively, some neurologic or muscular diseases can affect the muscles and nerves in the eyelid and lead to ptosis. A traumatic event that affects the eye can also increase the risk of developing this ...
The extra-ocular, or extrinsic eye, muscles are a series of small muscles that arise from the pre-otic somites in the developing head. Associated with these somites are the three ventral motor cranial nerves (III or the oculomotor, IV or the trochlear, and VI or the abducens) rostral to the developing ear. The seven extra-ocular muscles encircle the eye within the orbit. Six of the seven muscles attach to the sclera of the eye and produce the complete range of eye movements. The seventh muscle moves the upper eyelid out of the visual pathway. The six muscles of the eyeball are an incredibly stable muscle group over the long history of vertebrate evolution. Across the entire range of vertebrate animals, from fish to mammals, the six extra-ocular muscles show little variation. These intricately controlled muscles have some of the highest neuron to muscle fiber ratios in the body, with motor units consisting of approximately ten muscle fibers. The levator palpebrae superioris, the only member of ...
One of the most important distinctions is the time period for the ptosis. Sudden ptosis or ptosis associated with double vision needs to be investigated immediately.. P: What percentage of patients develop ptosis after a trabeculectomy?. Dr. Pro: Good question, and one that I dont have an exact number. In my experience about 10 percent of patients have some degree of ptosis after surgery. In most cases the ptosis slowly resolves. In my experience, ptosis is more frequently seen in repeat glaucoma surgery, or in tube shunt surgery.. P: What occurs during a trabeculectomy that causes ptosis?. Dr. Pro: In the immediate post-operative period, the inflammation from surgery can cause some lid swelling and ptosis. There are reports that post-operative steroid drops can cause ptosis.. The lid speculum that holds open the eye for surgery may cause some post-operative ptosis. Sometimes more chronic ptosis or later developing ptosis can be from the presence of an elevated filtering bleb that affects the ...

The surgical treatment for ptosis aims to correct the top eyelid position to a desired level. Not always is this possible. There may be factors that will prevent a safe lifting of the eyelid. That is why it is important to assess before the operation what level of the eyelid will not result in major eye problems. The operation is normally done with a local anaesthetic, but sometimes is general anaesthetic is required.. Most of the time it is possible to shorten the tendon of the muscle that lifts the eyelid, but sometimes it will be necessary to "connect" the eyelid indirectly to the eyebrow to enable the eyelid to be lifted.. Surgery to repair ptosis is most commonly performed by ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons who specialize in disease and conditions affecting the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (bone cavity around the eye), and adjacent facial structures.. ...

As a professional dreamworker, I regularly find support and guidance in my own dreams-so its challenging to find myself with a serious illness, but not getting a lot of dream-feedback.. In waking life, Im learning more and more about the physical impact that radiation poisoning is having on my body. I had intensive radiation treatments for Hodgkins Lymphoma over twenty years ago, and knew at the time that these treatments had caused damage-loss of thyroid function, circulatory and metabolic problems, impaired heart and lung efficiency-but didnt realize until recently that this damage was progressive, and would get much worse as I got older. In the past year, the bones, muscles and nerves in my upper spine and chest have begun deteriorating due to Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome, so it is becoming increasingly difficult to support the weight of my head. Then, an echocardiogram revealed that my heart muscle is also damaged, and my heart function will be declining. My life expectancy is now ...

Background and Purpose: To add to the literature a case of isolated third nerve paresis involving the nerve fascicles subserving the superior rectus and the levator palpebrae muscles from brain stem infarction and presenting the characteristics of central disruption of binocular vision fusional amplitudes. Case Report: One patient with an old intracranial aneurysm and with old and recent brain stem infarcts and no other neurological manifestations, demonstrating findings characteristic of isolated paresis of the superior rectus and levator palpebrae muscles is reported. Conclusion: This dual involvement of the superior rectus and levator palpebrae muscles supports the anatomical arrangement of the ocular motor nucleus fascicles in the midbrain, clarified by experimental studies on animals and clinical data in humans and emphasizes the juxtaposition of the superior rectus and levator palpebrae fascicles and placing the levator palpebrae muscle fascicle lateral to the medial rectus fascicle in the ...
Blepharophimosis is a congenital condition characterized by a horizontally narrow palpebral fissure. It is also part of a syndrome blepharophimosis, ptosis, and epicanthus inversus syndrome, also called blepharophimosis syndrome, which is a condition where the patient has bilateral ptosis with reduced lid size, vertically and horizontally. The nasal bridge is flat and there is hypoplastic orbital rim. Both the vertical and horizontal palpebral fissures (eyelid opening) are shortened; the eyes are also spaced more widely apart than usual, also known as telecanthus. Vignes (1889) probably first described this entity, a dysplasia of the eyelids. In addition to small palpebral fissures, features include epicanthus inversus (fold curving in the mediolateral direction, inferior to the inner canthus), low nasal bridge, ptosis of the eyelids and telecanthus. Blepharophimosis syndrome is an autosomal dominant characterized by blepharophimosis (horizontal shortening of the palpebral fissures), ptosis ...

The supraorbital artery is an artery of the head. It springs from the ophthalmic artery as that vessel is crossing over to the medial side of the optic nerve. It passes upward on the medial borders of the superior rectus muscle and levator palpebrae superioris, meeting the supraorbital nerve accompanies it between the roof of the orbit and levator palpebrae superioris to the supraorbital notch. When passing through the supraorbital notch it divides into a superficial and a deep branch. Its terminal branches anastomose with branches of the supratrochlear artery and the superficial temporal arteries. This artery supplies the levator palpebrae superioris, the diploë of the frontal bone, the frontal sinus, the upper eyelid, and the skin of the forehead and the scalp. This artery may be absent in 10% to 20% of individuals. The arteries of the face and scalp.

We dont currently feature information about ptosis or eyelid surgery on Better Vision Guide, so I thought Id spend a bit of time in this post discussing it.. Its true that the vast majority of eyelid surgeries, called blepharoplasty or eye lift, are performed for cosmetic purposes. However, correction of a sagging or drooping eyelid can be more problematic than simply making you look a few years older. If the upper eyelid droops far enough, it can cover the pupil, impeding your ability to see (ptosis).. Ptosis can develop as a natural part of the aging process, but it can also be present at birth. Congenital ptosis poses additional risks because it can impair the visual development of children. For instance, lazy eye (amblyopia) is a common condition that children with ptosis are at risk of developing. Congenital ptosis may also be the sign of a larger issue such as muscular disease, eye-movement issues, neurological disorders or eyelid tumors. For this reason, its imperative that you have ...
Eliminates excess skin and fat, rejuvenating the appearance of men and women. It is important for the patient to know the results and possible complications of these surgeries to build realistic expectations. Radical changes should not be pursued. Diseases such as Diabetes and High Blood Pressure as well as other systemic diseases should be controlled. These surgeries can be done as a single procedure or combined with others such as eye brow lifting or eyelid ptosis repair ( fallen eyelid).. It is an out patient procedure , local anesthetic and sedation are administered by an anesthesiologist.. We use radiofrecuency technology to perform incisions and skin cuts so less visible scars are obtained. Excess skin and fat are excised. Sutures are left in place for one week. It is not a painful procedure and the patient returns to his /her activities in a short time. It is normal to have swelling and bruising which dissapear in one or two weeks , meanwhile they can be hidden with make up. It is ...

For example, most cases of hives lasting less than six weeks (acute hives) are the result of an allergic trigger ...
Both external levator resection (ELR) and Müllers muscle-conjunctival resection (MMCR) are procedures well known to improve marginal reflex distance (MRD1) in patients with ptosis. This study aims to understand differential post-operative changes in eyelid contour for MMCR and ELR surgery. In this cross-sectional cohort study, patients affected by involutional ptosis were randomized into two groups: those who underwent ELR or MMCR surgery. Pre-operative and late post-operative photographs were obtained. Digital analysis of the lid contour was performed by measuring the vertical distance from a line intersecting the center of the pupil to the eyelid margin at 10 positions at 2 mm intervals. Mean distance at each position was compared pre- and post-operatively between the groups. The final sample included 60 eyes from 39 patients, 30 eyes per group. At each time point there was significant variation in height across the eyelid (p | 0.05). A significant (p | 0.05) group difference in vertical height was

The external surface of each eyelid is lined by thin skin which is attached to loose connective tissue, below which lies the palpebral part of orbicularis oculi. The internal surface is lined by the conjunctiva, a mucous membrane. At the margin of the eyelid there are numerous hairs (eyelashes). The internal structure of the eyelid contains the tarsal plate, a fibrous structure that gives the eyelid shape and provides an attachment for muscles. The tarsus is connected to the orbital septum superior/inferior. Each tarsus has an associated smooth muscle (superior/inferior tarsal muscle) which is under sympathetic control; the superior tarsus is the point of insertion of the levator palpebrae superioris ...

Some conditions, like droopy eyelids, can gradually interfere with your eyesight. Not only do droopy eyelids make you look sad or tired, but they can actually limit your visual field. There are two eye conditions that can cause your eyelids to droop and reduce your vision: dermatochalasis and ptosis.. Dermatochalasis is an eye condition characterized by excessive skin on the eyelid. It is usually associated with older age when skin loses elasticity, but younger individuals can be affected by dermatochalasis as well. A mild to moderate case of dermatochalasis can make you just look tired or sad, but an advanced case can actually impair your vision, especially peripheral vision. Dermatochalasis is very noticeable because of the folded, baggy skin on the eyelids that make your eyes appear puffy or swollen ...
A chin that sags over the line of the jaw (chin bone) is called chin ptosis. (ptosis is medically defined as a sagging of a body part) While some people have this naturally, most of the time it is due to the soft tissues of the chin sliding downward for a reason. This can occur from simple aging, loss of ones lower front teeth, and due to different surgical procedures of the chin. A few people actually have pseudo- or perceived chin ptosis which occurs as a result of a natural deep crease below the lower lip (submental crease) which makes the chin look ptotic (particularly when smiling) even though it is not. Successful correction of chin ptosis can usually be done for those problems caused by prior surgeries. Chin surgeries that are well known to cause soft tissue sagging include the intraoral placement of implants, removal of an overly large implant and bony reductions. Other less common causes include intraoral access for repair of mandibular symphysis and parasymphyseal fractures and ...

BACKGROUND: The Clostridium botulinum A exotoxin, or Botox A, is thought to be the most potent toxin known to man. In the past decade Botox has been found to be useful in the management of many muscular contraction syndromes including ophthalmic conditions such as blepharospasm, hemi-facial spasm, strabismus, and nystagmus, as well as non-ophthalmic uses for cosmesis and migraine pain management. Adverse ocular effects of the injection include persistent rash, localized anaphylactic reaction, and as we will discuss eyelid ptosis. Mechanisms of action include the reversible inhibition of acetylcholine-innervated muscle contractions and the inhibition of neurogenic inflammation believed to play a role in the etiology of headache disorders ...

One or more of the following abnormalities may accompany ptosis in childhood: astigmatism (refractive error), obstruction of the visual axis (the path that light takes into the eye), a chin-up head position, and amblyopia. The abnormal resting position of the eyelid on the cornea may result in astigmatism (a misshaping of the cornea) or other refractive errors, and is a risk factor for developing amblyopia (refractive amblyopia). Another risk factor for amblyopia is an eyelid drooping so low that it actually prevents light from entering the eye and creating an image on the retina at the back of the eye (deprivation amblyopia) Also, a chin-up head position may be present. This head position is adopted in order to be able to see beneath the edge of the drooping upper eyelid. Contraction of the frontalis muscle (in the forehead) to further elevate the upper eyelid is a very common compensatory mechanism.. ...

In August 1984, three cases of botulism were reported in California from two episodes in which the ill persons had eaten improperly handled food made from fresh ingredients. Episode 1: Botulism was reported in a 61-year-old Santa Cruz County woman and her 13-year-old granddaughter. The older woman had classic symptoms of bilateral ptosis, diplopia, and facial weakness; the granddaughter was less ill. Food histories revealed no recent exposures to home-canned food, but improper food handling was identified as the likely cause of illness. Three days before onset, the grandmother prepared two turkey loaves that included cereal, onion, and green pepper. One loaf was consumed without incident immediately after cooking. The other was inadvertently stored in the gas oven with the pilot light on (later measured at 32.2 C (90 F)), until the grandmother discovered it the next afternoon. She tasted a small portion before reheating it at approximately 150 C (300 F) for approximately 20 minutes and served ...
In the phenylephrine test, 1 drop of phenylephrine 10% solution was placed at the superior limbus of each eye with a ptotic eyelid.(1) The drop was placed with the eye in downgaze, with the examiners finger elevating the upper eyelid. Margin-to-reflex distance 1 (MRD1) was recorded by the author and photography was performed both before and 5 minutes after phenylephrine testing. MRD1 was measured by one author (SKF) by assessing the distance between the pupillary light reflex from a muscle light to the margin of the upper eyelid using a millimeter ruler held adjacent to the patients lateral canthus. A finger was placed over the patients brow to ensure frontalis relaxation. Two observers reviewed the photographs to determine MRD1 pre- and post-phenylephrine placement. Clinical measurements and photographic determinations were compared and in all cases were within 1 mm of each other. If there was a discrepancy, the mean of the two measurements was used. Clinical measurements of levator function ...
A 51-year-old male had a symptomless forehead mass of about 1-year duration. Excision was attempted at a private clinic but was discontinued due to excessive bleeding. At the time of presentation at National Health Insurance Service Ilsan Hospital (Ilsan, Korea), there was an approximately 1.5-cm-diameter firm protruding mass with an overlying 0.5-cm-long incision scar on the middle forehead (Fig. 1). An ultrasonogram showed a 2.05×1.36×0.49-cm benign-looking hyperechoic nodular lesion (Fig. 2). A subsequent computerized tomography (CT) scan showed that the lesion was confined to the extracranial location (Fig. 3). An excisional biopsy was performed under local anesthesia. During the excisional biopsy, the mass was difficult to grossly delineate from the overlying skin and was found to be adhered to the underlying frontalis muscle. Therefore, the mass was excised en-bloc in an elliptical shape including the skin and frontalis muscle. The wound was closed by primary repair. Histopathology ...
It is a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid. The lid may droop only slightly, or it may cover the pupil entirely. Some patients with ptosis may have difficulty keeping their eyelids fully open and then the ptosis can restrict and even block normal vision.

Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Michael McCracken commonly treats a condition known as ptosis, or eyelid drooping. Ptosis can affect one or both eyes and may block or greatly reduce vision. Ptosis is common in seniors, because the natural aging process causes the muscles that lift and lower the eyelid to relax and stretch. However, not all cases of ptosis are age-related. Sometimes ptosis can be a sign of an underlying medical condition, such as the following: Continue reading →. ...

N2 - Purpose: To characterize in vivo response of Mullers muscle to phenylephrine about time and diurnal variation. Methods: A nonrandomized trial of adults without (n = 20, 40 eyes) and with ptosis (n = 5, 5 eyes) measured for response of marginal reflex distance-1 (MRD1) to topical phenylephrine (2.5%) every 15 seconds in the morning (6-10 am) and evening (6-10 pm). Mean MRD1 was plotted over time, and morning and evening MRD1 were compared with the Spearman correlation coefficient (r) and paired t test. Results: Regardless of the time of day, subjects with and without ptosis had maximal response to phenylephrine within 2 minutes, with persistence of response at 30 minutes. There was good correlation (r = 0.92), with no statistically significant difference in rate or amount of change of MRD1 between morning and evening time points. ...
