Triple procedure in posterior segment intraocular foreign body  [cached]
Azad Rajvardhan,Sharma Yog,Mitra Sandeep,Pai Anant
Indian Journal of Ophthalmology , 1998,
Abstract: Three patients with intraocular foreign bodies and traumatic cataracts underwent single stage pars plana lensectomy with anterior capsule preservation, vitrectomy, removal of the foreign body, and intraocular lens implantation. The preserved anterior capsule permitted support for the placement of an intraocular lens in the posterior chamber in the ciliary sulcus. The procedure enabled early visual rehabilitation. This procedure seems useful in the management of posterior segment intraocular foreign body associated with cataract.

Abstract: This report presents a case of marble intraocular foreign body that developed toxic complications during surgery. The patient is a 25 years old male who presented to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital with a history of trauma to the right eye while cutting marble. He was examined, had an ocular ultrasound scan and subsequently had an extracapsular cataract extraction. His visual acuity in the right eye was light perception. There was an entry point on the cornea, the lens was opaque, there was vitreous haemorrhage and the intraocular foreign body was localized in the posterior part of the posterior segment by ultrasound scan. He had extracapsular cataract extraction. During anterior capsulotomy, the cornea suddenly and rapidly became cloudy with a brownish tinge and the corneal epithelium started desquamating.Marble on its own may not be toxic but the other chemicals including cement, used in the processing of the marble were responsible for this delayed toxicity. Ultrasound scan is valuable in localisation of intraocular foreign bodies.

Abstract: Introduction. An intraocular foreign body may traumatize the eye mechanically, introduce infection or exert other toxic effects on the intraocular structures. Removal of a metallic intraocular foreign bodies (IOFB) use an internal (vitrectomy followed by forceps or internal magnet use) or external approach (large electromagnet). Outline of Cases. A 51-year-old man sustained injury of the left eye by a metal foreign body. On admission visual acuity was normal (VOS=1.0) and intraocular tension was within normal limits (TOS=10 mmHg). Nasal scleral entry wound was noticed. Ultrasound of the left eye was done, which confirmed existence of IOFB laying nasally, next to the ciliary body. Extraction of IOFB with a big electric magnet was done. Visual acuity on discharge was the same (VOS=1.0). Another man, aged 30 years, came to the clinic after injury of the left eye by a foreign body. On admission visual acuity was VOS=L+P+ (light and projection), TOS=44 mmHg (higher), traumatic cataract, scleral entry wound, corneal edema, existence of IOFB and initial endophtalmitis. Lensectomia and vitrectomia via pars plana with IOFB extraction were done. Visual acuity on discharge was VOS=5/60 with +6.50 Dsph = 0.3-0.4; TOS=17 mmHg. Conclusion. Magnet removal is indicated in patients when IOFB is laying free in the vitreous body or stopped near the entry wound during injury without other complications. Internal approach - pars plana vitrectomy with forceps removal is used when IOFB is stuck either on the peripheral or posterior part of the retina or if there are some of aforementioned complications.

Abstract: Background/Aim. In cases of blurred optic media the ultrasound diagnostics offers useful data about eventual presence of intraocular foreign body as well as about its precise localization in the eye. The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyze echographic findings in patients with the diagnosis of intraocular foreign body with a special interest in localizations of a intraocular foreign body in the eye and the presence of an eventual infection - endophthalmitis. The aim of this study was also to confirm the localization of intraocular foreign body by echography and to test the precision of this method. Methods. We performed analysis of all cases that had been referred to the ultrasound diagnostices, in which the presence of intraocular foreign body had been confirmed in the period of one year. All examinations were done with B-scan and were confirmed during the surgery - vitrectomy. Results. In the one-year period we were contacted by 27 patients with intraocular foreign body. In one injured eye the intraocular foreign body was in the lens (3.7%), in 10 injured eyes (37.03%) intraocular foreign body was in the vitreal body. In 15 patients (55.5%) intraocular foreign body was fixed in the retina. In one patient (3.7%) there was a perforating injury, intraocular foreign body was found in the retrobulbar part of the orbit. In 7 injured eyes (25.9%), with the presence of intraocular foreign body, we found signs of endophthalmitis (organized blurring in vitreal space, thickened choroid). Other accompanying echographic findings were: blood in vitreal space, haemophthalmus in 12 cases (44.4%), retinal detachment in 5 cases (18.5%) and subretinal hemorrhagies in 4 cases (14.8%). Conclusion. Ultrasound diagnostics can very precisely show the localization of intraocular foreign body in the eye that is very important in the choice of approach and timing of surgical treatment. Also the echographic diagnostics may find an accompanying endophthalmitis in the posterior segment of the eye, that is very important for an urgent therapeutic approach.

Indian Journal of Ophthalmology , 2008,
Abstract: A 31-year-old man with high axial myopia and strabismus fixus convergens underwent bilateral refractive lens exchange followed by a squint surgery (bilateral superior partial Jensen′s procedure and medial rectus recession). After one year he presented with traumatic anterior dislocation of the sulcus fixated posterior chamber polymethyl methacrylate lens. The lens was dialed back into the ciliary sulcus without any complications. This case highlights the importance of implanting an intraocular lens (IOL) in-the-bag. If the IOL needs to be implanted in the sulcus, a larger diameter of the IOL with larger optic size and overall length is desirable, especially in highly myopic eyes.

Cukurova Medical Journal , 2013,
Abstract: Occupational eye injuries are the leading reasons of ocular traumas that can result in vision loss. To avoid such injuries it is important to increase awareness about work-related accidents. However, even to witness the bad results of the splashing of a foreign body into the eye, may not be enough to encourage people to take precautions. In this study medical records of 3 cases that belong to the same family and working at the same place who admitted to our clinic because of penetrating eye injury and intraocular foreign body, were analyzed in terms of the type of injury, ophthalmologic examination findings, surgical treatment and results. The state of consciousness of the society about the measures to be taken against occupational accidents was questioned, and the prevention methods to avoid vission loss due to such injuries were discussed.

Abstract: Eye trauma is a common cause of visual impairment, mainly of monocular blindness in 33 to 40% of cases. The case of a 40 years old female patient of rural origin, who attended Ophthalmology consultation at the Dr. Gustavo Aldereguía Lima General University Hospital because of blurry vision in her right eye three months after a trauma, is presented. An accurate medical record, ophthalmologic examination and appropriate diagnostic methods allowed identifying an intraocular foreign body. The patient underwent surgery and evolved favorably. Her best corrected visual acuity is 0.7 in the right eye and 1.0 in the left eye. Los traumatismos oculares son una causa común de deficiencia visual, principalmente de ceguera monocular en el 33 al 40 % de los casos. Se presenta el caso de un paciente de 40 a os y procedencia rural, que acudió a consulta de Oftalmología del Hospital General Universitario Dr. Gustavo Aldereguía Lima por presentar visión borrosa del ojo derecho, tres meses después de haber sufrido un traumatismo. Una correcta anamnesis, examen oftalmológico y métodos diagnósticos adecuados lograron la identificación de un cuerpo extra o intraocular. El paciente fue sometido a cirugía y evolucionó favorablemente; su agudeza visual mejor corregida es de 0,7 en el ojo derecho y de 1,0 en el izquierdo.
