Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

INFLAMMATION of any ARTERIES.
Swelling of the OPTIC DISK, usually in association with increased intracranial pressure, characterized by hyperemia, blurring of the disk margins, microhemorrhages, blind spot enlargement, and engorgement of retinal veins. Chronic papilledema may cause OPTIC ATROPHY and visual loss. (Miller et al., Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 4th ed, p175)
The 2nd cranial nerve which conveys visual information from the RETINA to the brain. The nerve carries the axons of the RETINAL GANGLION CELLS which sort at the OPTIC CHIASM and continue via the OPTIC TRACTS to the brain. The largest projection is to the lateral geniculate nuclei; other targets include the SUPERIOR COLLICULI and the SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEI. Though known as the second cranial nerve, it is considered part of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
A systemic autoimmune disorder that typically affects medium and large ARTERIES, usually leading to occlusive granulomatous vasculitis with transmural infiltrate containing multinucleated GIANT CELLS. The TEMPORAL ARTERY is commonly involved. This disorder appears primarily in people over the age of 50. Symptoms include FEVER; FATIGUE; HEADACHE; visual impairment; pain in the jaw and tongue; and aggravation of pain by cold temperatures. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed)
A bright bluish pink compound that has been used as a dye, biological stain, and diagnostic aid.
The portion of the optic nerve seen in the fundus with the ophthalmoscope. It is formed by the meeting of all the retinal ganglion cell axons as they enter the optic nerve.
Three groups of arteries found in the eye which supply the iris, pupil, sclera, conjunctiva, and the muscles of the iris.
The total area or space visible in a person's peripheral vision with the eye looking straightforward.
Inflammation of the optic nerve. Commonly associated conditions include autoimmune disorders such as MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, infections, and granulomatous diseases. Clinical features include retro-orbital pain that is aggravated by eye movement, loss of color vision, and contrast sensitivity that may progress to severe visual loss, an afferent pupillary defect (Marcus-Gunn pupil), and in some instances optic disc hyperemia and swelling. Inflammation may occur in the portion of the nerve within the globe (neuropapillitis or anterior optic neuritis) or the portion behind the globe (retrobulbar neuritis or posterior optic neuritis).

An irregularly shaped venous space in the dura mater at either side of the sphenoid bone.
The X-shaped structure formed by the meeting of the two optic nerves. At the optic chiasm the fibers from the medial part of each retina cross to project to the other side of the brain while the lateral retinal fibers continue on the same side. As a result each half of the brain receives information about the contralateral visual field from both eyes.
Conditions which produce injury or dysfunction of the second cranial or optic nerve, which is generally considered a component of the central nervous system. Damage to optic nerve fibers may occur at or near their origin in the retina, at the optic disk, or in the nerve, optic chiasm, optic tract, or lateral geniculate nuclei. Clinical manifestations may include decreased visual acuity and contrast sensitivity, impaired color vision, and an afferent pupillary defect.

The 12th cranial nerve. The hypoglossal nerve originates in the hypoglossal nucleus of the medulla and supplies motor innervation to all of the muscles of the tongue except the palatoglossus (which is supplied by the vagus). This nerve also contains proprioceptive afferents from the tongue muscles.
Dyssomnias associated with disruption of the normal 24 hour sleep wake cycle secondary to travel (e.g., JET LAG SYNDROME), shift work, or other causes.
Diseases of the twelfth cranial (hypoglossal) nerve or nuclei. The nuclei and fascicles of the nerve are located in the medulla, and the nerve exits the skull via the hypoglossal foramen and innervates the muscles of the tongue. Lower brain stem diseases, including ischemia and MOTOR NEURON DISEASES may affect the nuclei or nerve fascicles. The nerve may also be injured by diseases of the posterior fossa or skull base. Clinical manifestations include unilateral weakness of tongue musculature and lingual dysarthria, with deviation of the tongue towards the side of weakness upon attempted protrusion.
Traumatic injuries to the HYPOGLOSSAL NERVE.

Fluorescein angiographic features of choroidal insufficiency in anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. (1/142)

Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy(AION) is known to be caused by circulatory disturbance in the anterior optic nerve(AON). Because the AON shares blood supply from the paraoptic short posterior ciliary artery with peripapillary choroid, the authors investigated the angiographic evidences of combined choroidal insufficiency in patients with acute AION. Fundus fluorescein angiograms from 30 eyes from 28 patients with acute AION were enrolled in this study. The diagnosis of acute AION was based primarily on angiographic evidences of filling delay of optic nerve head and the various clinical features, such as decreased visual acuity, visual field defects, afferent pupillary defect, and optic disc swelling. Angiographic evidences of combined choroidal filling delay were as follows: 1) circular or localized filling delay of peripapillary choroid in 15 eyes (50%), 2) generalized filling delay of posterior pole in 11 eyes (36.7%), 3) filling delay of unilateral choroid divided by watershed zone in 5 eyes (16.7%), and 4) choriocapillary filling delay in 10 eyes (33.3%). In this study, various types of choroidal insufficiency in patients with AION were observed, which helped us to differentiate AION from the other various diseases of the anterior optic nerve.  (+info)

A case of optic neuropathy treated by percutaneous trans-coronary angiography. (2/142)

There are many risk factors involved in the development of ischemic optic neuropathy such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, and vascular incompetence. Therefore, the treatment of ischemic optic neuropathy should not be solely based on proper diagnosis but should also involve a thorough and systemic investigation to identify those multifactorial possibilities, which may contribute to the pathogenesis of the disease. We report upon a patient who developed non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy following treatment of a sphenoethmoid mucocele, which lead to recovered vision and a satisfactory improvement of visual field defects, after percutaneous trans-coronary angiography with stent insertion of the coronary arteries.  (+info)

Variable pattern of visual recovery of Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy. (3/142)

AIMS: To investigate pattern of visual recovery of nine patients with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) and a mitochondrial DNA mutation at 11778. METHODS: Recovery was judged significant when a gain of two lines or more in the Landolt ring chart, 10 dB or more improvement of the mean deviation of static perimetry, or improvement of critical flicker frequency (CFF) over 35 Hz was shown. RESULTS: All three visual functions tested dramatically recovered in one patient. Two other patients exhibited isolated improvement of CFF or visual field, respectively. CONCLUSION: Partial improvement of visual function may be more widespread than previously recognised in LHON patients with the 11778 mutation.  (+info)

An interocular comparison of the multifocal VEP: a possible technique for detecting local damage to the optic nerve. (4/142)

PURPOSE: To develop a quantitative measure of local damage to the ganglion cells/optic nerve based on an interocular comparison of multifocal visual evoked potentials (mVEP). METHODS: Multifocal VEPs were recorded from both eyes of six normal subjects and four patients; each eye was stimulated separately. Two of the patients had glaucoma, one had ischemic optic neuropathy, and one had unilateral optic neuritis. All four patients had considerably more damage in one eye than in the other, as indicated by their Humphrey visual fields. The multi-input procedure of Sutter was used to obtain 60 VEP responses to a scaled checkerboard pattern. The amplitude in each response was obtained using a root mean square measure of response magnitude. For each of the 60 pairs of responses, a ratio between the amplitude of the responses from the two eyes was obtained as a measure of the relative health of one eye compared with the other. The mean and SD of this ratio measure for the control group were used to specify confidence intervals for each of the 60 locations. All patients had Humphrey 24-2 visual fields performed. To allow a comparison of the mVEPs to the visual fields, a procedure was developed for displaying the results of both tests on a common set of coordinates. RESULTS: Except for a small interocular difference in timing attributable to nasotemporal retinal differences, the pairs of mVEP responses from the two eyes of the control subjects were essentially identical. Many of the pairs of responses from the patients were significantly different. In general, there was reasonably good agreement with the Humphrey 24-2 visual field data. Although some regions with visual field defects were not detected in the mVEP due to small responses from the better eye, other abnormalities were detected that were hard to discern in the visual fields. CONCLUSIONS: Local monocular damage to the ganglion cell/optic nerve can be quantitatively measured by an interocular comparison of the mVEP.  (+info)

Histopathologic studies of ischemic optic neuropathy. (5/142)

PURPOSE: To define the histopathologic features of eyes in which a pathologic diagnosis of ischemic optic neuropathy had been made in the years 1951 through 1998. METHODS: The following data were documented: age of patient, race, sex, source of tissue, cause of death, clinical history, interval from loss of vision to death, enucleation, exenteration, and biopsy. The histopathologic criteria for diagnosis of ischemic optic neuropathy were the presence of localized ischemic edema, cavernous degeneration, or an area of atrophy located superior or inferior in the optic nerve. Cases with history of abrupt loss of vision were combined with reports from the literature to construct a time table of histopathologic features and associated conditions. RESULTS: Ischemic optic neuropathy was present in 193 eyes. There were 88 females and 65 males. The average age was 71.6 years. Ischemic edema without (early) and with (later) gitter macrophages was present in 26 (13.5%). Cavernous degeneration was present in 69 nerves (36%). Mucopolysaccharide (MPS) was present in 37 cavernous lesions 1 month or longer after loss of vision. Cavernous lesions were seen in 3 eyes in which peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer hemorrhage had been observed prior to death. Atrophic lesions, the most common pattern, were observed in 133 optic nerves (66.8%). More than 1 ischemic lesion was seen in 38 optic nerves (19.7%). Bilateral ischemic lesions were seen in 50 (35.2%) of 142 paired eyes. CONCLUSIONS: Ischemic optic nerve lesions are initially acellular and later show macrophage infiltration. Cavernous lesions with MPS are present 4 weeks or longer after vision loss. The location of MPS posteriorly and along the internal margin suggests that MPS is produced at the edges of lesions. Progressive vision loss in ischemic optic neuropathy may be secondary to compression of intact nerve from ischemic edema and cavernous swelling, or a second ischemic lesion.  (+info)

Ischaemic optic neuropathy. (6/142)

Ischaemic optic neuropathy is of two types: anterior (AION) and posterior (PION), the first involving the optic nerve head (ONH) and the second, the rest of the optic nerve. Pathogenetically AION and PION are very different diseases. AION represents an acute ischaemic disorder of the ONH supplied by the posterior ciliary artery (PCA), while PION has no specific location in the posterior part of the optic nerve and does not represent an ischaemic disorder of any definite artery. The most important step towards a logical understanding of the underlying causes, clinical features, pathogenesis and rational management of AION, is to understand the basic scientific issues involved; these are discussed in some detail. AION clinically is of two types: (1) that due to giant cell arteritis (arteritic AION: A-AION) and (2) non-arteritic AION (NA-AION). NA-AION, the more common of the two, is one of the most prevalent and visually crippling diseases in the middle-aged and elderly, and is potentially bilateral. NA-AION is a multifactorial disease, with many risk factors collectively contributing to its development. Although there is no known treatment for NA-AION, reduction of risk factors is important in decreasing chances of involvement of the second eye and of further episodes. Our studies have suggested that nocturnal arterial hypotension is an important risk factor for the development and progression of NA-AION. The role of nocturnal arterial hypotension in the pathogenesis of NA-AION and management of nocturnal hypotension is discussed. Potent antihypertensive drugs, when used aggressively and/or given at bedtime, are emerging as an important risk factor for nocturnal hypotension, and there is some evidence that NA-AION may be occurring as an iatrogenic disease in some individuals. A-AION, by contrast, is an ocular emergency and requires immediate treatment with systemic corticosteroids to prevent further visual loss. The clinical parameters which help to differentiate the two types of AION, and their respective management are discussed.  (+info)

Hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia, but not MTHFR C677T mutation, as a risk factor for non-arteritic ischaemic optic neuropathy. (7/142)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia has been identified as a strong risk factor for stroke, myocardial infarction, and deep vein thrombosis. A point mutation of methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR C677T) has been associated with increased plasma homocyst(e)ine levels. To investigate whether hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia and/or MTHFR C677T mutation are associated with non-arteritic ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a case-control study including 59 consecutive patients with NAION and 59 controls matched for age and sex was performed. METHODS: Fasting plasma homocyst(e)ine levels, MTHFR C677T genotypes, and plasma levels of folate and vitamin B-12 were determined. RESULTS: Mean plasma homocyst(e)ine levels were significantly higher in patients than in controls (11.8 (SD 5.7) micromol/l v 9.8 (2.5) micromol/l, p = 0.02). The odds ratio for patients with homocyst(e)ine levels exceeding the 95th percentile of control homocyst(e)ine levels was 5.8 (95% CI 1.5-21.4). Mean plasma folate levels were significantly lower in patients than in controls (4.3 (1.7) ng/ml v 5.5 (1.9) ng/ml, p = 0.001), whereas plasma vitamin B-12 levels did not differ significantly. Prevalence of the MTHFR C677T mutation was not significantly increased in patients with NAION compared with controls. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia, but not MTHFR C677T mutation is associated with NAION. Determination of plasma homocyst(e)ine levels might be of diagnostic value in patients with NAION.  (+info)

Steroid management in giant cell arteritis. (8/142)

AIM: Ocular involvement in giant cell arteritis (GCA) is an ophthalmic emergency which, if untreated, can progress to permanent blindness. There is little evidence in the literature to support current protocols for the acute treatment of GCA with steroids. The authors sought to review the effects of intravenous and oral steroids in GCA. METHODS: This retrospective study reviewed the records of 100 consecutive patients with biopsy proved giant cell arteritis. 73 patients with visual loss who were treated at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital (RVEEH) and St Vincent's Hospital were included in the final series. The authors studied the management of the patients in the first week after presentation, analysing types of treatment, dose, effect on visual acuity, and complications. RESULTS: All the patients except one had visual loss due to anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (AION). 17 patients (23%) had bilateral eye involvement. Visual acuity improved in 21 of 73 patients (29%) by a mean of two Snellen chart lines after commencement of steroids. There was an increased likelihood of improved vision in the group who had intravenous steroids (40%) compared with those who received oral steroids (13%). In all except four patients (95%) vision remained stable at 1 month review. CONCLUSIONS: Prompt treatment of GCA with steroids leads to improvement of visual acuity in a significant number of cases. Intravenous steroids may offer a greater prospect of improvement compared with oral steroids. A prospective trial comparing intravenous with oral steroids is needed to validate these findings and would not expose elderly patients to unacceptable risks.  (+info)

Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (NAION or NAAION) is a condition that occurs when blood flow to the optic nerve is blocked. Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy, sometimes called eye stroke, is characterized by rapid vision loss or blindness that may occur over minutes, hours, or sometimes days. Risk factors for Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy include high blood pressure, diabetes, and atherosclerosis.. In rare cases, Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy has occurred in patients taking PD5 inhibitors, such as Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra.

Aim: To evaluate newly diagnosed non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) patients for the existence of an associated sleep apnoea syndrome.. Methods: Newly identified NAION patient underwent polysomnography. The prevalence of sleep apnoea in NAION patients was compared to the prevalence previously found in the general population. Hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia, and atheromatous lesions of carotid vessels as classic risk factors associated with NAION were also identified.. Results: 27 consecutive newly diagnosed NAION patients (18 men and nine women, mean age 65 (SD 8) years, body mass index 27.2 (3.8) kg/m2) were included in the study. 24 of these 27 NAION patients (89%) exhibited a sleep apnoea syndrome (respiratory disturbance index: 37.2/h (SD 18.3/h). Risk ratio for a NAION patient to have sleep apnoea was 4.9 compared to the general population (p,0.001). Sleep apnoea was 1.5-2-fold more frequent than the rate of the other identified risk factors typically ...
Non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) is an acute optic neuropathy occurring predominantly in small optic nerve heads in elderly patients.1-3 It has been debated which factors, other than old age and a small optic disc size, predispose to the disease. Data on the prevalence of NAION in the general population has so far been scarce.4,5 They have been completely missing for the Chinese. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of optic nerve damage with the features of a preceding NAION in the Beijing Eye Study.. The Beijing Eye Study is a population-based cohort study in Northern China.6 The Medical Ethics Committee of the Beijing Tongren Hospital approved the study protocol and all participants gave their informed consent, according to the ...

RPC impairment in the acute phase of NAION, which was previously only suspected with fluorescein angiography, was thus demonstrated using OCT-A. As in other recent studies,18,19,22 we found a decrease in VD values in the RPC in the acute phase of NAION (see Fig. 3). Although some studies have reported cases showing an improvement in RPC VD during resorption of the edema, we observed a worsening in capillary depletion at the 1- and 3-month visits (see Figs. 3, 4). The mechanism explaining this peripapillary capillary rarefaction remains poorly understood. Indeed, unlike arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy23 or central retinal artery occlusion,24 which are complete vascular occlusions generating downstream capillary ischemia by stopping the perfusion, NAION results from a merely transient hypoperfusion of the ONH. This low flow is related to circulatory slowing in the PCAs,3 often due to prolonged nocturnal hypotension2 in OSAS3 (see Table 1). Consequently, the decrease in RPC WiVD measured in the ...

Ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) is the loss of structure and function of a portion of the optic nerve due to obstruction of blood flow to the nerve (i.e. ischemia). ION is typically classified as either anterior ischemic optic neuropathy or posterior ischemic optic neuropathy according to the part of the optic nerve that is affected. People affected will often complain of a loss of visual acuity and a visual field, the latter of which is usually in the superior or inferior field. ...
Lack of available treatment for patients with NAION is a source of discomfort for the neuroophthalmologist. Various agents and procedures for NAION treatment have been suggested, but most without encouraging results.. The idea of treating NAION with corticosteroids is that relieving the pressure on the axons during the acute phase (when the optic disc is edematous) may prevent further damage to the optic nerve. Therefore, in most studies corticosteroids were administered in the acute phase, which is believed to be within the first 2 weeks [19]. This therapeutic window is also supported by animal models [25] as well as the common clinical experience of general progression in visual loss during this period, with stabilization thereafter [3]. For this reason the IONDT [4] also allowed a 2-week therapeutic window for the decompression to be made (for regular-entry patients). In our study all patients also received treatment within 2 weeks of onset.. The largest series to date reporting ...
Nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) is the most common acute optic neuropathy in people older than 50 years. It is characterized by sudden partial loss of vision in one eye and has an increased risk of vision loss in the fellow eye. Although cause has not been determined, NAION is thought to occur following an idiopathic ischemic event involving the short posterior ciliary arteries that supply blood to the most anterior part of the optic nerve. A complete loss of vision is rare, but partial loss of visual field or acuity can result from NAION in the affected eye(s).. Patients who have a disc at risk or crowded disc (small cup: disc ratio) are at increased risk for developing NAION. Other risk factors for NAION include age , 50 years and white race (estimated 95% of cases). Hypertension and diabetes also predispose to NAION development. Other factors that have been associated with NAION include high cholesterol, arteriosclerosis, stroke, cardiac and intraocular surgery, ...
Purpose: To compare the ganglion cell layer (GCL) thickness measurements to retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) analysis in patients affected by ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) using high definition optical coherence tomography (HD-OCT).. Methods: Twenty-five subjects with the diagnosis of ischemic optic neuropathy were recruited during the period August-December 2013. A second group of thirty age-matched controls was also included. Full neuro-ophthalmologic evaluation was carried-out including Cirrus HD-OCT to evaluate the GCL and RNFL thickness. Statistical analysis was done using Mann-Whitney U test to compare RNFL vs. GCL thicknesses between patients and controls.. Results: All patients with ION showed decreased GCL thickness when compared with the control group (P,0.001). RNFL was thinner in twenty-one patients (p,0.05).

Posterior ischemic optic neuropathy (PION) is a medical condition characterized by damage to the retrobulbar portion of the optic nerve due to inadequate blood flow (ischemia) to the optic nerve. Despite the term posterior, this form of damage to the eyes optic nerve due to poor blood flow also includes cases where the cause of inadequate blood flow to the nerve is anterior, as the condition describes a particular mechanism of visual loss as much as the location of damage in the optic nerve. In contrast, anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION) is distinguished from PION by the fact that AION occurs spontaneously and on one side in affected individuals with predisposing anatomic or cardiovascular risk factors.[citation needed] PION is characterized by moderate to severe painless vision loss of abrupt onset. One or both eyes may be affected and color vision is typically impaired. Looking inside the persons eyes at the time of onset, ophthalmoscope exam reveals no visible changes to the optic ...
Diagnosis. Optic disc swelling can be caused by a number of different etiologies, including arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (giant cell arteritis), non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, an intracranial tumor or mass, or elevated intracranial pressure, either from obstructive hydrocephalus or idiopathic (pseudotumor cerebri). Diabetic or hypertensive papillitis can also cause optic disc edema.. In addition, there are a number of infectious causes of papillitis, including Lyme disease, syphilis, Bartonella henslae, and herpes zoster. Sarcoidosis has also been associated with hyperemic optic disc swelling. Buried optic disc drusen are another consideration, often misdiagnosed as optic disc edema. However, this is rarely associated with flame-shaped hemorrhages.. In this case, the optic disc edema was bilateral and associated with hearing loss, headache, and vertigo. The laboratory values for CRP and ESR were not diagnostic for giant cell arteritis. Given the constellation ...

PURPOSE: Both non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) damage retinal ganglion cell axons, which are perfused by the radial peripapillary capillaries. To evaluate the pattern of ischemia, we compared peripapillary capillary density (PCD) in NAION eyes to POAG eyes matched for visual field mean deviation and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness. METHODS: 31 chronic NAION (,6 months after the acute event) and unaffected fellow eyes (31 subjects), 42 moderate and severe POAG eyes (27 subjects), and 77 control eyes (46 healthy subjects) were imaged with a commercial optical coherence tomography angiography system (AngioVue, Avanti RTVue-XR, Optovue, CA) at two academic institutions ...
Sudden Loss of Vision. Physicians should advise patients to stop use of all PDE5 inhibitors, including VIAGRA, and seek medical attention in the event of a sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes. Such an event may be a sign of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a cause of decreased vision including possible permanent loss of vision, that has been reported rarely post-marketing in temporal association with the use of all PDE5 inhibitors. Physicians should discuss with patients the increased risk of NAION in individuals who have already experienced NAION in one eye. Physicians should also discuss with patients the increased risk of NAION among the general population in patients with a crowded optic disc, although evidence is insufficient to support screening of prospective users of PDE5 inhibitor, including VIAGRA, for this uncommon condition [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3) and Adverse Reactions (6.2)]. ...

METHODS: 31 chronic NAION (,6 months after the acute event) and unaffected fellow eyes (31 subjects), 42 moderate and severe POAG eyes (27 subjects), and 77 control eyes (46 healthy subjects) were imaged with a commercial optical coherence tomography angiography system (AngioVue, Avanti RTVue-XR, Optovue, CA) at two academic institutions ...

PURPOSE Malignant optic glioma of adulthood is a rare, invasive neoplasm of the anterior visual pathway with 66 cases reported in the literature. It presents as anaplastic astrocytoma (WHO grade III) or glioblastoma (WHO grade IV). The present case series covers the spectrum of disease manifestations, discusses neuroradiological findings, and reviews the current literature. METHODS Retrospective case series of five patients from three tertiary referral centers and literature review. RESULTS Visual loss with or without pain was the presenting symptom in all patients (two women, three men). Two patients were initially misdiagnosed as optic neuritis, and one patient as atypical non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). A neoplastic disease was suspected in the two remaining patients. MRI features were iso- to hypointensity on T1-weighted native images, contrast enhancement, and hyperintensity on T2-weighted images. Biopsy was generally diagnostic; however, one patient required two ...

FREMONT, Calif., Jun 28, 2010 - Quark Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a world leader in the discovery and development of RNAi-based therapeutics, today announced results from a second study of QPI-1007, a neuroprotective siRNA drug, in rat ocular hypertension model of glaucoma, conducted by Prof. Adriana Di Polo of the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, Université de Montréal. Prof. Di Polos recent study in a rat model of glaucoma shows that QPI-1007, when given in two intravitreal injections after induction of ocular hypertension (at two weeks and 10 days later), can deliver a sustained neuroprotective effect, as measured by a significant attenuation in RGC death five weeks after disease induction. Ocular neuroprotection, encompassing prevention of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) death, represents a novel approach for treating glaucoma, non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), and other ocular diseases.. These results support the further evaluation of QPI-1007 as a potential novel ...

It is unfortunate that Drs. Lee et al. 1 and Warner2 feel compelled to conclude that blindness may be an inevitable consequence of prolonged spine surgery in the prone position, and that patients should be warned of that possibility. While perhaps correct, my experience in supervising many hundreds of such cases without this complication leads me to believe that it is preventable. Although briefly considered by Dr. Lee et al. in the Discussion section, sufficient attention was not focused on the large average volume of crystalloid solution (9.7 ± 4.7 l) infused in the 83 patients who developed ischemic optic neuropathy. This volume of infusion is far in excess of what is necessary for maintenance of either blood pressure or urine output. In addition, it has a serious negative impact on the hematocrit, as well as promoting edema of the orbs and optic nerves. Although the etiology of blindness may be multifactorial, as anesthesiologists we must critically assess those aspects of care over which ...
Summary: Background: Ischemic optic neuropathy is the most common form of perioperative visual loss, with highest incidence in cardiac and spinal fusion surgery. To date, potential risk factors have been identified in cardiac surgery by only small, singleinstitution studies. To determine the preoperative risk factors for ischemic optic neuropathy, the authors used the National Inpatient Sample, a database of inpatient discharges for nonfederal hospitals in the United States.Methods: Adults aged 18 yr or older admitted for coronary artery bypass grafting, heart valve repair or replacement surgery, or left ventricular assist device insertion in National Inpatient Sample from 1998 to 2013 were included. Risk of ischemic optic neuropathy was evaluated by multivariable logistic regression.Results: A total of 5,559,395 discharges met inclusion criteria with 794 (0.014%) cases of ischemic optic neuropathy. The average yearly incidence was 1.43 of 10,000 cardiac procedures, with no change during the study

As a Comprehensive Ophthalmologist, I see patients with both common and rare ocular disorders, including Genetic-associated diseases. I also consult at UMMC for a wide variety of eye-related disorders. My laboratory interests center on age-related and genetically associated optic nerve diseases, in particular nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), whcih is a stroke of the optic nerve, and the most common cause of sudden optic nerve-related vision loss. My lab developed the mouse, rat (rAION) and primate (pNAION) models of NAION, enabling us to identify the crucial aspects of this disease, and evaluate potential treatments for NAION. We continue to characterize the features of these models, and utilize them to identify potential points of therapeutic interactions. My major laboratory interests are divided into three parts: 1) Neuroprotective approaches to NAION, using both small molecules and monoclonal antibodies. 2) Post-ON infarct recovery, using selective inflammation ...
Nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy is one of the leading causes of sudden and irreversible loss of vision in older adults. In a prospective randomized trial of 60 patients with NAION, investigators have shown that the addition of the corticosteroid fluocortolone to standard therapy significantly improves both short- and long-term visual acuity, especially when given soon after the onset of symptoms. Their results are published in Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience. Full Story →. ...
Ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) is the loss of structure and function of a portion of the optic nerve due to obstruction of blood flow to the nerve (i.e. ischemia). ION is typically classified as either anterior ischemic optic neuropathy or posterior ischemic optic neuropathy according to the part of the optic nerve that is affected. People affected will often complain of a loss of visual acuity and a visual field, the latter of which is usually in the superior or inferior field. ...
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate was 97 mm per hour, and temporal artery biopsy showed chronic inflammation with giant cells. Carotid doppler revealed moderate stenosis of the right internal carotid artery and mild stenosis of the left internal carotid artery with normal flow. The patient was given a 6-week course of systemic corticosteroids, but at 3-month follow up, there was no recovery of vision in the right eye.. There are several reports of corneal involvement in GCA (3-5). However, hypotony occurs infrequently, and it is thought to be caused by a reduction in aqueous production as a result of inflammation of the ciliary body (2-4,6-8). Hypotony was detected in one third of patients without other signs of anterior segment ischemia in a study by Huna-Baron et al (2). They suggested that low intraocular pressure may help distinguish arteritic from nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy.. Mild corneal edema and Descemet folds have been reported in GCA (3-5) in several cases, but severe ...
The second hit involves cardiovascular risk factors. The most common are diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol levels. In patients with a disc at risk, these vascular risk factors lead to ischemia (poor blood supply) to a portion of the optic disc. The disc then swells, but the crowded conditions dont allow space for this, so compression occurs and this leads to more ischemia. Since both eyes tend to have a similar shape, the ophthalmologist will look at the good eye to assess the anatomical predisposition. There is evidence that genetic factors may play a role in NAION. (see the OMIM link). A number of studies have linked Viagra use with NAION.[1][2][3][4][5][6] ...

There are two main types of neuropathy: peripheral, which affects what causes peroneal nerve neuropathy feet, legs, hands, and arms, and autonomic neuropathy. While the peripheral neuropathy program is unique to each patient and their individual circumstances, there are some core features of the program shared by all patients. The EMG in ulnar nerve lesions can establish the location of the pathological process, document the severity and evaluate for common differential diagnosis which includes lower trunk brachial plexopathy and C8 radiculopathy. Vitamin D can also help support healthy nerve functions and decrease swelling that can lead to pain. You injure the nerve or pinch it as everyone says, and very quickly the limb goes numb.

Neuroretinitis with vitreous cells has a diverse differential diagnosis. Infectious sources that can present similarly include syphilis, Bartonella, Toxoplasma gondii, Toxocara, HIV, HSV, CMV, tuberculosis, Borreila burgdorferi, Leptospira interrogans, Rickettsia typhi, cysticercosis, and Aspergillus.(3,4) Inflammatory conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, sarcoidosis, and systemic lupus erythematosus, also have similar presentations. Neoplastic diseases, such as meningioma, glioma, central nervous system lymphoma, and infiltrative metastatic disease with leptomeningeal involvement should also be included in the differential diagnosis. Conditions such as myelinated nerve fiber layer, and optic disc drusen can be mistaken for neuroretinitis. Vascular diseases, including non-arteritic and arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, diabetic retinopathy, radiation retinopathy, and central retinal vein occlusion, also bear a resemblance when papillitis is present.

Physicians should advise patients to stop use of all phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors, including VIAGRA, and seek medical attention in the event of a sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes. Such an event may be a sign of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a rare condition and a cause of decreased vision including permanent loss of vision, that has been reported rarely post-marketing in temporal association with the use of all PDE5 inhibitors. Based on published literature, the annual incidence of NAION is 2.5-11.8 cases per 100,000 in males aged ≥ 50. An observational case-crossover study evaluated the risk of NAION when PDE5 inhibitor use, as a class, occurred immediately before NAION onset (within 5 half-lives), compared to PDE5 inhibitor use in a prior time period. The results suggest an approximate 2-fold increase in the risk of NAION, with a risk estimate of 2.15 (95% CI 1.06, 4.34). A similar study reported a consistent result, with a risk estimate of ...

Optic neuropathy refers to damage to the optic nerve due to any cause. Damage and death of these nerve cells, or neurons, leads to characteristic features of optic neuropathy. The main symptom is loss of vision, with colors appearing subtly washed out in the affected eye. On medical examination, the optic nerve head can be visualised by an ophthalmoscope. A pale disc is characteristic of long-standing optic neuropathy. In many cases, only one eye is affected and patients may not be aware of the loss of color vision until the doctor asks them to cover the healthy eye. Optic neuropathy is often called optic atrophy, to describe the loss of some or most of the fibers of the optic nerve. In medicine, atrophy usually means shrunken but capable of regrowth, so some argue that optic atrophy as a pathological term is somewhat misleading, and the term optic neuropathy should be used instead. In short, optic atrophy is the end result of any disease that damages nerve cells anywhere between the ...

Methods: In seven sheep, a silicone band was placed around one ON to compress the subarachnoid space (SAS) surrounding the nerve, thus blocking the flow of CSF without compressing the ON itself. After 4 or 21 days, both the ligated and untouched ONs were removed and evaluated histologically. Results: All treated ONs showed marked loss of axons, destruction of myelin and swelling of meningoepithelial cells, most pronounced in the proximal ON adjacent to the globe at the location most distant to the ligature. There was no significant difference in histological findings between the ONs that were ligated ...
