Electrical stimulation as a therapeutic option to improve eyelid function in chronic facial nerve disorders. (1/619)

PURPOSE: To establish whether it is possible to improve orbicularis oculi muscle function in the eyelids of patients with a chronic seventh cranial nerve palsy by using transcutaneous electrical stimulation to the point at which electrical stimulation induces a functional blink. METHODS: Ten subjects (one woman, nine men) aged 36 to 76 with chronic, moderate to severe facial nerve palsy were recruited into the study. Voluntary and spontaneous eyelid movements were assessed, using an optical measuring system, before, during, and after a 3-month treatment period. Voluntary and spontaneous lid velocities were also measured and compared with eyelid kinematic data in normal subjects (12 women, 18 men; age range, 22-56 years). RESULTS: Therapeutic electrical stimulation applied over 3 months produced improvement in eyelid movement (>2 mm) in 8 of 10 patients during voluntary eyelid closure. However, there was no significant improvement recorded in spontaneous blink amplitudes or peak downward-phase velocity of the upper eyelid. This regimen of stimulation failed to recover function well enough that a functional blink could be induced in the paretic eyelid by electrical stimulation. CONCLUSIONS: Electrical stimulation using transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators units can improve voluntary eye closure, apparently because of a reduction in stiffness of eyelid mechanics, rather than an improvement of muscle function. Investigation of alternative stimulation regimens is warranted.  (+info)

Alpha9 and beta8 integrin expression correlates with the merger of the developing mouse eyelids. (2/619)

As previously reported, alpha9 integrin is expressed between the merged or fused eyelids of mice at birth, and changes in alpha9 localization occur during lid opening. To determine whether alpha9 and/or additional integrin subunits mediate the emergence and temporary fusion of the eyelids, immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy were used to evaluate the localization of various integrin subunits in the developing ocular surface of the mouse. No detectable beta5, beta6, or beta7 integrins were observed on the epithelia of the ocular surface. alpha2, alpha3, alphav, and beta1 integrins were most abundant in the basal cells beginning at 13.5 days post conception and remained primarily localized to the basal cell layers throughout development. beta4 was localized at the basal surface of the epidermal basal cells beginning at 13.5 days post conception but was not found on the corneal epithelial basal cells until after birth. alpha9 and beta8 integrins were present on suprabasal cells of the epidermis at the leading edge of the eyelid before merger and on the epithelial bridge that forms immediately after these tissues merge, suggesting that they play a role in the initial fusion of the epithelial tissues of the eyelid and in stabilizing the epithelial junction. After birth and into adulthood, beta8 was retained within the suprabasal cell layers of the epidermis, whereas alpha9 became localized to the basal cells of the epidermis, the conjunctiva, and the limbus. The lack of co-localization of beta4 with either alpha9 or beta8 in double-labeling studies suggests that alpha9 and beta8 are restricted to the lateral and apical aspects of those cells in which they are expressed. The presence of tenascin-C and laminin-5 at the epithelial junction site suggests that alpha9: tenascin-C and beta4: laminin-5 interactions may play a role in stabilizing the fusion between lids early on but do not appear to be involved in the movement of the lids across the cornea. The data presented identify specific integrins and matrix proteins that are likely to mediate eyelid fusion.  (+info)

Discharge profiles of abducens, accessory abducens, and orbicularis oculi motoneurons during reflex and conditioned blinks in alert cats. (3/619)

The discharge profiles of identified abducens, accessory abducens, and orbicularis oculi motoneurons have been recorded extra- and intracellularly in alert behaving cats during spontaneous, reflexively evoked, and classically conditioned eyelid responses. The movement of the upper lid and the electromyographic activity of the orbicularis oculi muscle also were recorded. Animals were conditioned by short, weak air puffs or 350-ms tones as conditioned stimuli (CS) and long, strong air puffs as unconditioned stimulus (US) using both trace and delayed conditioning paradigms. Motoneurons were identified by antidromic activation from their respective cranial nerves. Orbicularis oculi and accessory abducens motoneurons fired an early, double burst of action potentials (at 4-6 and 10-16 ms) in response to air puffs or to the electrical stimulation of the supraorbital nerve. Orbicularis oculi, but not accessory abducens, motoneurons fired in response to flash and tone presentations. Only 10-15% of recorded abducens motoneurons fired a late, weak burst after air puff, supraorbital nerve, and flash stimulations. Spontaneous fasciculations of the orbicularis oculi muscle and the activity of single orbicularis oculi motoneurons that generated them also were recorded. The activation of orbicularis oculi motoneurons during the acquisition of classically conditioned eyelid responses happened in a gradual, sequential manner. Initially, some putative excitatory synaptic potentials were observed in the time window corresponding to the CS-US interval; by the second to the fourth conditioning session, some isolated action potentials appeared that increased in number until some small movements were noticed in eyelid position traces. No accessory abducens motoneuron fired and no abducens motoneuron modified their discharge rate for conditioned eyelid responses. The firing of orbicularis oculi motoneurons was related linearly to lid velocity during reflex blinks but to lid position during conditioned responses, a fact indicating the different neural origin and coding of both types of motor commands. The power spectra of both reflex and conditioned lid responses showed a dominant peak at approximately 20 Hz. The wavy appearance of both reflex and conditioned eyelid responses was clearly the result of the high phasic activity of orbicularis oculi motor units. Orbicularis oculi motoneuron membrane potentials oscillated at approximately 20 Hz after supraorbital nerve stimulation and during other reflex and conditioned eyelid movements. The oscillation seemed to be the result of both intrinsic (spike afterhyperpolarization lasting approximately 50 ms, and late depolarizations) and extrinsic properties of the motoneuronal pool and of the circuits involved in eye blinks.  (+info)

A single technique to correct various degrees of upper lid retraction in patients with Graves' orbitopathy. (4/619)

BACKGROUND: Several lengthening techniques have been proposed for upper eyelid retraction in patients with Graves' orbitopathy and variable rates of success have been reported. Most authors recommend different procedures for different degrees of retraction, but cannot prevent residual temporal retraction in a significant number of cases. The modified levator aponeurosis recession described by Harvey and colleagues, in which the lateral horn is cut completely, seems to be an exception to this rule, but was evaluated in a limited number of cases only. METHOD: The authors further modified Harvey's technique by dissecting the aponeurosis together with Muller's muscle of the tarsus and the conjunctiva medially only to the extent necessary to achieve an acceptable position and contour of the eyelid in upright position. They also used an Ethilon 6.0 suture, instead of Vicryl, on a loop. It is placed between the tarsal plate and the detached aponeurosis to prevent spontaneous disinsertion. This modification was used in 50 Graves' patients (78 eyelids) with a upper lid margin-limbus distance ranging from 1 to 7 mm and evaluated using strict criteria. RESULTS: A perfect or acceptable result was obtained in 23 of 28 patients (82%) with bilateral retraction and in 18 of 22 patients (82%) with unilateral retraction. Seven eyelids were overcorrected (too low) and three undercorrected, necessitating reoperation. All other eyelids had an almond-like contour and a lid crease of 10 mm or less. No complications except subcutaneous haematomas were seen. Two patients showed a recurrence of lid retraction 9 months after the operation. CONCLUSION: This technique is safe and efficacious and can be used for all degrees of eyelid retraction.  (+info)

Topographic anatomy of the eyelids, and the effects of sex and age. (5/619)

AIMS: To describe the effects of sex and age on eyeball, eyelid, and eyebrow position. METHODS: A cross sectional cohort study was performed in which both eyes of 320 normal subjects aged between 10 and 89 years were included. Of each 10 year age cohort, there were 20 men and 20 women. Frontal, as well as lateral, slides were taken of both eyes. On projected slides, a reference line through the medial canthi and vertical lines through the pupil centre and the lateral canthus were constructed. Using these lines, we measured the size of the horizontal eyelid fissure, the distance from the reference line to the pupil centre and to the lateral canthus, the distance between the pupil centre and the upper and lower eyelid margin, and the distance between the upper eyelid margin and the skin fold and eyebrow. On lateral slides, the distance between the lateral canthus and the anterior corneal surface was measured. RESULTS: Between the ages of approximately 12 and 25 years, the horizontal eyelid fissure lengthened 3 mm, while the position of other eyelid structures remained virtually unchanged. Between the average ages of 35 and 85 years, the horizontal eyelid fissure gradually shortened again by about 2.5 mm. Meanwhile, the distance between the lateral canthal angle and the anterior corneal surface decreased almost 1.5 mm. Aging caused an increase of the distance between the pupil centre and the lower eyelid of about 1 mm in men, and 0.5 mm in women. Aging also caused a higher skin crease and raised eyebrows in men and women, but it did not affect the position of the pupil centre and the lateral canthus. Men showed an 0.7 mm larger horizontal eyelid fissure than women. In women, however, the eyebrows were situated about 2.5 mm higher than in men. CONCLUSION: Aging mainly affects the size of the horizontal eyelid fissure, which lengthens by about 10% between the ages of 12 and 25, and shortens by almost the same amount between middle age and old age. Aging causes sagging of the lower eyelid, especially in men, and a higher skin fold and eyebrow position in both sexes. Aging does not affect the position of the eyeball proper, or of the lateral canthus.  (+info)

Developmental expression of mucin genes ASGP (rMuc4) and rMuc5ac by the rat ocular surface epithelium. (6/619)

PURPOSE: To determine site and time of initiation of expression of the membrane-spanning mucin ASGP (rMuc4) and the goblet cell-specific, gel-forming mucin rMuc5AC by the developing rat ocular surface epithelium. METHODS: Newborn Sprague-Dawley rat pups were killed at 1, 7, and 14 days after birth. Adult rats (weight, 200 g) were used as controls. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was performed to detect ASGP mRNA using beta-actin as an internal control. Competitive RT-PCR was performed to quantitate rMuc5AC mRNA using an rMuc5AC-competitive reference standard (CRS) as an internal control. In situ hybridization was performed to localize ASGP and rMuc5AC mRNA. Goblet cells were detected by staining with periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) reagent. RESULTS: ASGP mRNA was detected by RT-PCR at 1 day after birth. Compared with beta-actin, the amount of ASGP mRNA showed a progressive increase from 1 to 14 days of postnatal development. By in situ hybridization, the expression of ASGP was first clearly detected at 14 days after birth at the lid margin, where the most stratification of epithelium was seen, and along the adjacent palpebral conjunctiva. This pattern was seen in rat eyelids that were not yet open but appeared about to open. In rat eyelids already open at 14 days after birth, ASGP mRNA was diffusely spread in the apical cell layer of both conjunctival and corneal epithelia. The expression of rMuc5AC was detected by RT-PCR in ocular surface epithelium in rat pups 1 day after birth. Quantitative RT-PCR showed a low level of rMuc5AC RNA expression in conjunctiva of 1-, 7-, and 14-day-old rats followed by a large increase in expression between 14 days and adulthood. The expression of rMuc5AC was first detected by in situ hybridization in a few goblet cells at 7 days after birth. One or two labeled cells were present in the fornical area; some were on the palpebral side of the fornix; others were present on the bulbar side. The distribution and time of appearance of rMuc5AC correlated with that of PAS staining of goblet cells. CONCLUSIONS: The developmental expression of the membrane-spanning mucin ASGP (rMuc4) and the gel-forming mucin rMuc5AC are regionally and temporally separated. Expression of the gel-forming mucin begins at the fornix at 7 days after birth and is correlated with the appearance of goblet cells, whereas, expression of the membrane-spanning mucin begins later at the lid margin at day 14. Expression of the membrane-spanning mucin correlates to eyelid opening.  (+info)

Ductal cysts of the accessory lacrimal glands: CT findings. (7/619)

Benign ductal cysts of the accessory lacrimal glands are uncommon lesions of the orbit, arising from the glands of Wolfring and Krause. We report two patients with histopathologically proved cysts in whom CT scans revealed well-circumscribed extraconal cystic lesions adjacent to the globe, involving both eyelids. Radiologists should be aware of these rare lesions so as to include them in the differential diagnosis of orbital cysts.  (+info)

Role of cerebellum in adaptive modification of reflex blinks. (8/619)

We investigated the involvement of the cerebellar cortex in the adaptive modification of corneal reflex blinks and the regulation of normal trigeminal reflex blinks in rats. The ansiform Crus I region contained blink-related Purkinje cells that exhibited a complex spike 20.4 msec after a corneal stimulus and a burst of simple spike activity correlated with the termination of orbicularis oculi activity. This occurrence of the complex spike correlated with trigeminal sensory information associated with the blink-evoking stimulus, and the burst of simple spike activity correlated with sensory feedback about the occurrence of a blink. Inactivation of the inferior olive with lidocaine prevented all complex and significantly reduced simple spike modulation of blink-related Purkinje cells, but did not alter orbicularis oculi activity evoked by corneal stimulation. In contrast, both acute and chronic lesions of the cerebellar cortex containing blink-related Purkinje cells blocked adaptive increases in orbicularis oculi activity of the lid ipsilateral but not contralateral to the lesion. These data are consistent with the hypothesis that the cerebellum is part of a trigeminal reflex blink circuit. Changes in trigeminal signals produce modifications of the cerebellar cortex, which in turn, reinforce or stabilize modifications of brainstem blink circuits. When the trigeminal system does not attempt to alter the magnitude of trigeminal reflex blinks, cerebellar input has little or no effect on reflex blinks.  (+info)

Waved with open eyelids 2 (woe2) is a novel autosomal recessive mouse mutation that arose spontaneously in our animal facility. Upon initial evaluation, mutant mice exhibited eyelids open at birth (EOB) and wavy fur phenotypes. The goals of this study were to phenotypically characterize the woe2 mice and to identify the gene harboring the mutation responsible for the woe2 phenotype. Histological analysis of woe2 embryos identified the failure of embryonic eyelid closure. Clinical and histological analysis of woe2 adult eyes identified severe corneal opacities, abnormalities of the anterior segment of the eye, and the absence of meibomian glands. Abnormalities in the fur texture and the absence of meibomian glands prompted us to evaluate other epidermal appendages: skin, teeth, and nails--as well as lacrimal, mammary, salivary, sebaceous and sweat glands. No obvious morphological differences between WT and woe2 mice were identified in these tissues. However, the analysis of woe2 identified cardiac
We present a facial wearable robot to support eyelid movement for patients with hemifacial paralysis. People with facial paralysis are not able to blink, which leads to dry eyes and could cause permanent damage to the cornea. To address this issue, we developed a robotic system to support eyelid movement on the paralyzed side based on voluntary eyelid movement on the healthy side. The robot has a novel mechanism for supporting eyelid movement and is made from soft material, which we call the eyelid gating mechanism (ELGM). We defined the requirements for eyelid manipulation. Then, we introduced design rules for the ELGM based on this definition, and conducted a deformation analysis. As a result, we could control deformation so that it is tailored to eyelid movement with simple rotational input at two hinged ends. This system provides appropriate support for eyelid movement in a non-invasive and gentle manner, based on voluntary eyelid movement on the healthy side. In this paper, we present a performance

Purpose. Orbicularis oculi muscle tension and muscle blood flow have been shown to be objective measures of eyestrain during visually demanding activities, such as computer work. In line with this, positive associations between eye-related pain and muscle blood flow in orbicularis oculi have been observed. A hypothesis regarding work situations with cognitive tasks and low-level muscle activity, such as computer work, proposes that muscle pain originates from the blood vessel-nociceptor interactions of the connective tissue of the muscle. Noninvasive muscle blood flow measurements in the orbicularis oculi muscle are preferable to using an invasive technique. The aim of this study was to test reproducibility and stability of muscle blood recordings in orbicularis oculi using photoplethysmography. Methods. In the reproducibility tests, 12 subjects were tested twice within 1 to 5 weeks. To study the stability of the method, six of the subjects were randomly selected and tested four more times ...
An eyelid is a thin fold of skin that covers and protects the human eye. The levator palpebrae superioris muscle retracts the eyelid to open the eye. This can be either voluntarily or involuntarily. The human eyelid features a row of eyelashes along the eyelid margin, which serve to heighten the protection of the eye from dust and foreign debris, as well as from perspiration. Palpebral (and blepharal) means relating to the eyelids. Its key function is to regularly spread the tears and other secretions on the eye surface to keep it moist, since the cornea must be continuously moist. They keep the eyes from drying out when asleep. Moreover, the blink reflex protects the eye from foreign bodies. The eyelid is made up of several layers; from superficial to deep, these are: skin, subcutaneous tissue, orbicularis oculi, orbital septum and tarsal plates, and palpebral conjunctiva. The meibomian glands lie within the eyelid and secrete the lipid part of the tear film. The skin is similar to areas ...
article{76e7f8bb-e206-4efa-8c25-e4fff7991ded, abstract = {,p,BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The eyelids are susceptible to a number of skin cancers, which are challenging to excise radically without sacrificing excessive healthy tissue. Photoacoustic (PA) imaging is an emerging non-invasive biomedical imaging modality that could potentially be used for intraoperative micrographic control of the surgical margins of eyelid tumors. In this study, non-cancerous human eyelid tissue was characterized using PA as a first step in the development of this technique.,/p,,p,STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve full-thickness samples from nine patients were analyzed ex vivo using PA imaging. Two-dimensional PA images were acquired using 59 wavelengths in the range of 680-970 nm to obtain the spectral signatures of the skin, orbicularis oculi muscle, and the tarsal plate. Three-dimensional images were obtained by scanning the tissues using a linear stepping motor. Spectral unmixing was performed to ...
Phenylephrine test is one of the main factors determining the possibility of performing superior tarsal muscle resection. However, the influence of various factors on its result remains unexplored.Aim. To evaluate the effect of patient age, degree of ptosis, and levator muscle function on the result of the phenylephrine test.Patients and methods. 45 patients were examined (64 eyelids). The following examinations were performed for all patients: assessment of the degree of ptosis, levator muscle function and the phenylephrine test.Results. Age and the degree of ptosis do not affect the results of the phenylephrine test. Reduced levator muscle function leads to a decrease of the phenylephrine test results.Conclusion. The phenylephrine test remains an important criteria for patient selection for the planning superior tarsal muscle resection. Levator muscle function does affect the phenylephrine test result.
Background. For the patients seeking secondary upper blepharoplasty, a static double-eyelid fold featuring an immobile lower flap and depression of the fold is common.. Objectives. In this study, the authors propose a novel technique of reconstructing pretarsal tissue defects (PTDs) to converting static folds to dynamic folds.. Methods. A total of 203 patients with static folds underwent revision surgery. After complete adhesion release of the lower flap, a PTD was identified, which was defined as an area deficient of orbicularis oculi muscle in front of the tarsal plate. If the width of the PTD was over 2 mm, tissue transfer was performed to reconstruct the PTD, usually with a free retro-orbicularis oculus fat graft or a pretarsal orbicularis oculi flap.. Results. Among the 105 patients with severe static folds, 67 received retro-orbicularis oculus fat grafts and 38 received orbicularis oculi muscle flaps. This technique converted a static fold into a dynamic fold. The surgery satisfaction rate ...
The aponeurosis of the levator palpebrae superioris muscle has been cut back so that the entire extent of the tarsal muscle is visible. Smooth muscle fibers are less evident in the extreme lateral and medial parts of this layer. The orbital septum does not appear to be a complete membrane in the lateral and inferior parts of the orbit, but rather consists of fibrous bands intermingled with lobules of fat. The layer of connective tissue which extended betweeen the orbicularis oculi muscle and the orbital septum has been completely removed ...
Question - Right eyelid opening less, ptosis. Taking Nurostar tablets. Good medication for this condition?. Ask a Doctor about diagnosis, treatment and medication for Horners syndrome, Ask an Ophthalmologist
The eyelid is divided into two lamellae, the anterior skin-muscle and the posterior tarso conjunctival lamella [3], [5]. The orbicularis muscle is divided into pretarsal, preseptal, and orbital orbicularis depending on the structure immediately posterior to it. Posteriorly, the tarsus is plate of dense connective tissue that occupies the inferior aspect of the upper eyelid [6]. The upper eyelid crease is formed by insertion of the fascial extensions of the levator aponeurosis, through the orbicularis muscle, to the skin. The upper eyelid crease runs parallel to the eyelid margin [5]. There are various types of flaps available in the management of upper eyelid defects, which include sliding flaps, advancement flaps, island flaps, and transposition flaps [3], [4]. The advancement flap is a modality of skin defect closure via mobilization of tissue along a linear direction [7]. In the advancement flap, the surrounding skin is fashioned, raised, and advanced on its own long axis to close the ...
Ptosis (pronounced toe sis), or drooping of the upper eyelid, may occur for several reasons such as: disease, injury, birth defect, previous eye surgery, eyelid rubbing, eyelid manipulation from contact lens use, and age.. Usually ptosis is caused by a weakness of the levator muscle (muscle that raises the lid), a partial detachment of the muscle from the skeleton of the eyelid (the tarsus), or a problem with the nerve that sends messages to the muscle. Patients often have difficulty blinking, which may lead to irritation, infection and eyestrain. Chronic attempts to keep the droopy eyelid open can actually result in a dry eye problem.. Ptosis does not usually improve with time, and nearly always requires corrective surgery. In most cases, surgery is performed to strengthen or tighten the levator muscle and lift the eyelid. If the levator muscle is especially weak, the lid and eyebrow may be lifted. Ptosis surgery and upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery are the most common reconstructive ...

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 ...

Visual health consists of many aspects of the eye, including parts you cannot see on the surface of the eye. Learning the structures and functions of the eye are the best way to understand how to keep the eyes healthy and why eye diseases may occur. Here is an overview of the anatomy of the human eye.. Eyelid. The eyelid consists of two movable folds which protect the eye. At the edge of the eyelid are 2 to 3 rows of eyelashes, called CILIA. The eyelids consist of multiple layers. From outer to inner most layer: the skin, subcutaneous areolar, orbicularis layer, orbital septum, superior levator palpebrae muscle, muscle of muller, tarsal plate, and palpebral conjunctiva.. Fun fact: When you see someone flipping their eyelid over, that pinkish area is called the palpebral conjunctiva. This is an immunologically active layer filled with macrophages and mast cells, which provide a defense against foreign invaders.. Lacrimal System. The lacrimal system produces and drains the tears. The LACRIMAL ...

The current preferred method of obtaining eye pressure involves a licensed medical practitioner using a specialized instrument to touch the patients cornea directly through the open eyelid, which may cause discomfort or pain and requires that antibiotic medications be administrated just prior to each exam. The NJIT/UMDNJ tonometer allows for testing through the closed eyelid and thus can be done outside a normal medical setting such as in a pharmacy operated patient care clinic or even at home ...

An orbit defect with loss of the eye and its delicate lid structures can be concealed with an implant anchored silicon facial prosthesis. This method assures secure retention and good esthetic results as long as the eye remains open. However, when the healthy lid closes, the immobility of the prosthesis becomes conspicuous. The aim of this development was to animate the artificial lid in the orbita prosthesis to give the patient a much more natural appearance. All components in the prosthesis were integrated to create an artificial lid that would blink in synchrony with that of the healthy eye. The material which proved to be most suited for the moveable eyelid was cast latex milk. It was elastic, would take dyes and was robust enough to withstand approximately 30 involuntary lid movements per minute. The artificial upper lid was pulled up behind the eye prosthesis by means of a fine thread, analogous to the natural lid opener. This is driven by a DC micromotor which lifts the upper lid in a ...

Purpose : To examine the effects on embryonic development of eyelids and orbicularis oculi muscles and meibomian glands in Six1 and Six4 (Six1/4) double knockout mice. Methods : Six1/4-double knockout (dKO) and littermate wild-type (WT) embryos were used. Paraffin sections or whole-mounted specimens of eyelids were examined at embryonic day (E)15.5 (n = 4), E16.5 (n = 4) and E17.5 (n = 4). Paraffin sections were processed for hematoxylin and eosin (HE) staining or immunohistochemistry for a-smooth muscle actin. Whole-mount eyelid specimens were processed for phalloidin staining and observed under confocal microscopy. Results : A dKO mouse died just after birth due to a breathing problem. At and after E16.5 the morphogenesis of eyelid was found to be severely impaired in dKO embryos. Histology and immunohistochemistry showed disturbance of the development of meibomian glands and orbicularis oculi muscles in dKO embryos. Eye including intraocular structures were well formed.

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.. ...
The word blepharoplasty is derived from the Greek words Blepharon, meaning eyelid, and plastos, meaning formed. Blepharoplasty surgery is one of the oldest described treatments of the aging face. The goal of surgery is to remove excess tissue which causes and overhang of skin leading to cosmetic (poor appearance) or functional (reduced field of vision) consequences. The first recorded blepharoplasty surgery was by a Spanish surgeon, Albucasis, a pioneer in the creation of surgical instrumentation, including the use of cautery (to control bleeding) in 1000 A.D.. Modern blepharoplasty techniques have certainly come a long way. Current upper lid blepharoplasty procedures focus on the excision of variable amounts of skin, muscle, and fat. An increased interest in lower lid blepharoplasty surgery has also evolved. Lower blepharoplasty surgery primarily focuses on preventing lower eyelid droop (ectropion, retraction) and hollowing (volume depletion). These complications are inherent to the more ...

Surgery is usually the best treatment for drooping eyelids. The surgeon tightens the levator muscles to restore the eyelids to their normal position. In very severe cases involving weakened levator muscles, the surgeon attaches the eyelid under the eyebrow to allow the forehead muscles to substitute for the levator muscles in lifting the eyelid. Eyelid surgery is also known as blepharoplasty.. After surgery, the eyelids may not appear symmetrical, even though the lids are higher than before surgery. Very rarely, eyelid movement may be lost.. It is important to choose your blepharoplasty surgeon carefully, since a poorly-done surgery could result in a less than desirable appearance or in dry eyes caused by your lids not being able to close properly after surgery. Before agreeing to ptosis surgery, ask how many procedures your surgeon has done. Also ask to see before-and-after photos of previous patients, and ask if you can talk to any of them about their experience.. ...
It has been known that the development of skin creases on the sole of the foot occurs in late intrauterine life and that after birth this is a helpful clinical sign to determine gestational age. Until 36 weeks of gestation there are only one or two transverse skin creases on the anterior part of the sole. The posterior two-thirds of the sole are smooth. By 37 to 38 weeks of gestation more creases have appeared and in the full-term infant there is a complex series of criss-crossed creases covering the entire sole.. Since no racial differences in the presence or absence of this sign have ever been published a study was designed to compare the development of skin creases on the sole of the foot between Caucasian and Negro newborn infants.. ...

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure intended to reshape the upper eyelid or lower eyelid and is performed to improve peripheral vision and give a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. Blepharoplasty repairs droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is almost always done for cosmetic reasons, to improve puffy lower eyelids bags and reduce the wrinkling of skin. Blepharoplasty is performed through external incisions made along the natural skin lines of the eyelids, such as the creases of the upper lids and below the lashes of the lower lids, or from the inside surface of the lower eyelid. This operation takes approximately one to three hours to complete.. How is Blepharoplasty performed? ...
PURPOSE. To examine the recovery process of blinking in a longitudinal study of nine patients severely affected by Bells palsy. METHODS. Kinematics of bilateral eyelid and eye movements and concomitant orbicularis oculi activity during voluntary blinking and air-puff- and acoustic-click-induced reflex blinking were determined by using the magnetic search coil technique and electromyographic recording of the orbicularis oculi muscle (OO-EMG). RESULTS. In the first 3 months of absence of OO-EMG activity, reduced eyelid and eye movement of the palsied eyelid were observed during all types of blinking. First OO-EMG activity was determined 3 months after onset of the affliction. After 1 year, OO-EMG activity was normalized and showed values similar to those on the nonpalsied side. Clinically, eyelid movements were normal after 1 year, although corresponding maximum amplitudes and corresponding velocities were two times smaller, expressed in reduced eyelid motility. Directions of eye movement during ...
Haploinsufficiency of the FOXL2 transcription factor in humans causes Blepharophimosis/Ptosis/Epicanthus Inversus syndrome (BPES), characterized by eyelid anomalies and premature ovarian failure. Mice lacking Foxl2 recapitulate human eyelid/forehead defects and undergo female gonadal dysgenesis. We report here that mice lacking Foxl2 also show defects in postnatal growth and embryonic bone and cartilage formation. Foxl2 (-/-) male mice at different stages of development have been characterized and compared to wild type. Body length and weight were measured and growth curves were created. Skeletons were stained with alcian blue and/or alizarin red. Bone and cartilage formation was analyzed by Von Kossa staining and immunofluorescence using anti-FOXL2 and anti-SOX9 antibodies followed by confocal microscopy. Genes differentially expressed in skull vaults were evaluated by microarray analysis. Analysis of the GH/IGF1 pathway was done evaluating the expression of several hypothalamic-pituitary-bone ...

The orbicularis oculi muscle has been removed except for remnants of its origins medially. The tarsal plate (4) of the upper eyelid has been exposed together with the corrugator supercilii muscle (2) and nerves emerging through the orbital septum. The skeleton of the nose has been exposed. In the oral region muscle fibers have been retracted to demonstrate the labial arteries (12,15). The masseter muscle has been freed from its zygomatic origin as well as its mandibular insertion and then reflected posteriorly. The masseteric nerve and vessels can thus be traced through the depths of the muscle from their entry point near its posterosuperior border. Close-up views which illustrate more details of this dissection are to be found as ...

Kitano Hospital,The Tazuke Kofukai Medical Research Institute. INTRODUCTION: During laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection (APR) for low rectal cancer, prevention of circumferential resection margin (CRM) involvement is important. Laparoscopic APR is superior to open APR because it allows for direct and precise visualization of the deep intrapelvic space. However, the local recurrence and survival rates after APR are reportedly not lower than those associated with anterior resection. One reason for this is the difficulty in properly resecting the levator muscles to prevent CRM involvement. We implemented a method that allows for resection of the levator muscles without closely approaching the rectal wall and that creates a cylindrical specimen.. METHODS AND PROCEDURES: The mesorectum is dissected caudally to the level of the levator muscle, ...

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 ...
45 year-old male presented to Dr. Shridharanis cosmetic plastic surgery office, LUXURGERY, in New York requesting improvement his fatigued look. The patient states that he works as an executive and though he feels great, he always looks fatigued. He was looking to improve the appearance of his tired eyes and rejuvenate the appearance of the lower eyelids. He was requesting the incision to be placed on the underside of the eyelid so there would be NO external, visible scar. He underwent lower blepharoplasty (transconjuctival approach) and laser resurfacing to lower eyelids. He is pictured here 1 week prior to surgery and nearly 1 year after his procedure ...
Various techniques to correct the upper and the lower eyelid are available. It is important that the correct technique or the correct combinations of techniques are very carefully chosen after careful and detailed analysis of the anatomic changes as well as your wishes and expectations.. In the upper eyelid typically an area of skin and a strip of underlying musculature is removed. This is the so-called skin-muscle flap technique. If there is excessive fat around the eye that bulges into the upper eyelid skin, this may be removed at the same time. The skin cut maybe performed with a surgical knife or with a laser. Dr. Gassner prefers the surgical knife as he feels this affords greater precision. Moreover, the laser requires more extensive precautionary measures which includes placement of metal cap protectors on your eyeballs. These protectors may distort the anatomy of the upper eyelid during the surgery and may cause some imperfections in the placement of the incision.. For the lower eyelid ...

Results Eighteen eyelids of 17 patients received segment chains (mean weight 1.2 g, range 0.8-1.6 g) and 3 for exchange of pre-existing gold weights. Median follow-up was 10 (range 6-17) months. Mean blink lagophthalmos improved from 7 (3-10) mm to 3 (0-6) mm (p,0.0001), and gentle closure from 3.2 (0-8) mm to 1.1 (0-4.9) mm (p=0.0004). Twelve patients (71%) reported no prominence, and the remainder, mild prominence only. The chain was graded as having no prominence in 78% (14/18) eyelids. Two required segment adjustments with removal of a single 0.2 g segment at 11 months and transfer of 0.4 g segment to the contralateral eyelid at 16 months, respectively. One complication (posterior, trans-conjunctival exposure above the superior border of the tarsal plate) was seen 12 months post surgery, requiring repositioning. ...
Veins on eyelids - I was wondering are noticeable veins on eyelids bad? Not usually. If the blood vessels are associated with swelling, itching, or styes, then it might be an eyelid manifestation of acne rosacea. It is treatable. In the absence of associated problems, there is nothing bad about visible veins on the eyelids.
When using gadgets and looking at digital screens, the eyes will focus to this near range object. As such, the eye blinking rate (BR) can reduce from resting BR of 15 per minute to about 5 per minute.. Furthermore, children who use gadgets may be utilizing adult size furniture. For example, using a laptop while sitting on a lower seating height adult chair will cause them to look up when viewing the screen, leading to a larger eyelid opening. This causes the rate of evaporation of tears to increase. A larger eyelid opening, combined with reduced amount of blinking to around 5 times per minute will result in dry points that can cause small lesions on the surface of the cornea, called superficial Punctate Epithelial Erosions (PEE). Some symptoms of the PEE include sense of dry eye, red eye, foreign body sensation, photophobia and burning sensation. Proper diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of PEE can only be determined by an eye care professional. It may be treated with artificial tears or ...

The upper and lower eyelids, like all facial skin, become loose and saggy with age. The corrective surgery to counteract this is known as Blepharoplasty. It can not only take years off your appearance, but, in the case of the upper lids, can improve vision.. Sagging upper eyelids can not only add years to a persons appearance, but can also make a person look tired or angry. In many cases, drooping eyelids can also interfere with vision. To remedy this, Dr. Nelson can make an incision that is hidden in the upper crease of the eyelid and remove excess skin giving the upper lid a smooth, rested appearance and removing it from the field of vision.. Dr Nelson has been appointed as Laureate and Distinguished Fellow of the American Council Of Plastic Surgeons.. ...
Blepharoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure requiring local anesthesia and sedation. General anesthesia may be used for anxious patients. Patients can choose to have this procedure on their upper or lower eyelids, or both. The procedure can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on whether both the upper and lower eyelids are operated on.. If the upper eyelid is being operated on, an incision is typically made along its natural crease. Once the incision is made, fat deposits are repositioned or removed, muscles and tissue are tightened, and excess skin is removed. For the lower eyelid, an incision is usually made just below the lash line so that excess skin can be removed.. After the procedure, the incisions are closed with sutures, tissue glue or surgical tape, and usually loosely covered with gauze so the area can heal.. ...

In the dog and cat, it is possible to save the eye if it is not badly damaged or infect. This is done by doing lateral canthotomy (which I did in this hamster) to enlarge the ocular space, push back the eyeball, give antibiotics and anti-inflammatory, stitch up the upper and lower eyelids (tarsorrhaphy) to protect the eyeball and keeping it moist. In 14-21 days review the eyeball and remove the stitches. In tarsorrhaphy, the eyelids are not snipped off. An e-collar is then worn. All these are not possible for the hamster esp. the post-op care as the hamster hates the e-collar and will get rid of it in no time. The hamster may not eat or survive after such a drastic surgery. So, removing the popped out eyeball is the practical option. ...

This medical exhibit series depicts the normal anatomy of the eye and orbit from a sagittal (cut-away) view. Labeled structures include the superior and inferior rectus muscles, inferior oblique muscle, orbicularis oculi muscle, optic nerve, fovea, choroid, sclera, posterior chamber, retina, vitreous chamber, lens, iris, pupil and cornea.
Individual muscles tend to be a mixture of various fiber types, but their proportions vary depending on the actions of that muscle and the species. For instance, in humans, the quadriceps muscles contain ~52% type I fibers, while the soleus is ~80% type I.[29] The orbicularis oculi muscle of the eye is only ~15% type I.[29] Motor units within the muscle, however, have minimal variation between the fibers of that unit. It is this fact that makes the size principal of motor unit recruitment viable. The total number of skeletal muscle fibers has traditionally been thought not to change. It is believed there are no sex or age differences in fiber distribution; however, proportions of fiber types vary considerably from muscle to muscle and person to person. Sedentary men and women (as well as young children) have 45% type II and 55% type I fibers.[citation needed] People at the higher end of any sport tend to demonstrate patterns of fiber distribution e.g. endurance athletes show a higher level of ...
