  • ophthalmologist
  • Eric John Arnott , MA, FRCS, FRCOphth (12 June 1929 - 1 December 2011) was a British ophthalmologist and surgeon who specialized in cataracts, a condition which in many parts of the world still remains the principal cause of blindness. (wikipedia.org)
  • retinal
  • Some of the risks that FDA have been found so far during a three-year study of the Artisan are: a yearly loss of 1.8% of the endothelial cells, 0.6% risk of retinal detachment, 0.6% risk of cataract (other studies have shown a risk of 0.5 - 1.0%), and 0.4% risk of corneal swelling.

  • implant
  • This prospective case series followed cases which had cataract extraction and Molteno implant insertion (45 eyes) or trabeculectomy (94 eyes) followed up for a mean of 5.3 years and 3.9 years respectively. (bmj.com)
  • Cataract extraction and Molteno implant insertion or trabeculectomy controlled the intraocular pressure at 21 mmHg or less with a probability of 1.00 (95% CI 0.93 to 1.00) at 10 years or more after operation and 0.94 (95% CI 0.89 to 0.99) and 0.73 (95% CI 0.46 to 0.99) at five and 10 years after operation respectively.

  • Cataract extraction was combined with trabeculectomy, except in cases with additional risk factors or where a higher complication rate was expected from trabeculectomy, wherein a Molteno implant was inserted (see Table 1). (bmj.com)

  • Head-to-head trials of MSICS vs phaco in dense cataracts have found no difference in outcomes, but shorter operating time and significantly lower costs with MSICS. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • The purpose of this study is to investigate the changes in the pilocarpine-induced ciliary body movement before and after cataract extraction in order to determine the effect of lens sclerosis on the ciliary muscle contractility. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • indicates
  • Two recent reviews highlight a relative lack of controlled studies regarding this subject, 2, 3 however the weight of evidence indicates that phacotrabeculectomy may be associated with poorer long term intraocular pressure (IOP) control compared with trabeculectomy alone, but it reduces the frequency and magnitude of early IOP spikes compared with cataract extraction alone.
