The outcome of traumatic optic neuropathy was evaluated following penetrating and blunt injuries to assess the effect of treatment options, including high-dose steroids, surgical intervention, and observation alone. Factors that affected improvement in visual acuity were identified and quantified. Sixty-one consecutive, nonrandomized patients presenting with visual loss after facial trauma between 1984 and 1996 were assessed for outcome. Pretreatment and posttreatment visual acuities ...

PURPOSE: The SupraFOIL smooth nylon foil implant is a polyamide sheet available in varying thicknesses that has been used in orbital reconstruction following trauma. The authors report their experience with smooth nylon foil implants in the repair of orbital fractures.

METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients having undergone repair of orbital fractures between January 1, 1995 and December 31, 2003 was conducted. The Wilcoxon test was used to compare cases with complications and ...

PURPOSE: To evaluate our initial experience with a porous polyethylene implant with embedded titanium in orbital reconstruction.

METHODS: A retrospective review of the charts was performed for patients receiving at least 1 orbital porous polyethylene implant with embedded titanium from October 2004 through April 2006. Patient demographics, implant type and size, method of fixation, postoperative complications, and length of follow-up were recorded.

RESULTS: One-hundred six patients ...

Blindness in patients suffering maxillofacial trauma is usually caused by optic nerve or optic canal injuries. It is, however, an uncommon complication of facial trauma, with a reported incidence of only 2 to 5 percent. Blindness may also follow surgical repair of facial fractures. Many mechanisms, such as intraoperative direct nerve injury, retinal arteriolar occlusion associated with orbital edema, or delayed presentation of indirect optic nerve injury sustained at the time of the ...

OBJECTIVE: Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare autosomal recessive disease caused by mutations in DNA repair genes. Clinical manifestations of XP include mild to extreme sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation resulting in inflammation and neoplasia in sun-exposed areas of the skin, mucous membranes, and ocular surfaces. This report describes the ocular manifestations of XP in patients systematically evaluated in the Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health.

To demonstrate the effect of apraclonidine on anisocoria and ptosis in Horner syndrome, one drop of 0.5% apraclonidine was instilled in both eyes of 3 patients who presented with acute Horner syndrome, and the effect on ptosis and anisocoria was documented. As reported in the literature, one drop of 0.5% apraclonidine reverses the anisocoria of Horner syndrome. In addition, 0.5% apraclonidine leads to a complete resolution of the ptosis associated with Horner syndrome, a finding reported ...

Abstract · Background: The success of a retinal prosthesis for patients with outer retinal degeneration (ORD) depends on the ability to electrically stimulate retinal cells other than photoreceptors. Experiments were undertaken in human volunteers to ascertain whether electrical stimulation of cells other than photoreceptors will result in the perception of light. · Methods: In two subjects, two areas of laser damage (argon green and krypton red) were created in an eye scheduled for ...

Dog bites are commonly associated with soft-tissue injury to the face but rarely result in facial fractures. This article reports six new cases of facial fractures associated with dog bites and reviews additional cases reported in the literature. The demographics of the patients attacked, the location of facial fractures, and the characteristics of associated soft-tissue injuries or complications developing from the dog bite are described. With six new cases and 10 from the literature, ...

OBJECTIVE: To study the clinicopathologic features of the histiocytoid variant of adenocarcinoma of the eccrine sweat gland of the eye and orbit.

DESIGN: Retrospective case series.

PARTICIPANTS: Five patients undergoing orbital and eyelid biopsy as a diagnostic procedure.

METHODS: The authors examined the clinical histories and pathologic findings of five patients with eccrine adenocarcinoma of the eyelid with orbital invasion.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Clinical and histopathologic ...

Blindness in patients suffering maxillofacial trauma is usually caused by optic nerve or optic canal injuries. It is, however, an uncommon complication of facial trauma, with a reported incidence of only 3 to 5 percent. This incidence drops dramatically when fractures are performed in the controlled situation of orthognathic surgery. Given the rarity of ophthalmic complications after traumatic Le Fort I injuries, it is not surprising that few cases have been reported after orthognathic ...

PURPOSE: To characterize mismatch repair protein expression and the role of DNA repair abnormalities in sebaceous carcinomas of the ocular adnexa.

DESIGN: Retrospective case-series study.

METHODS: We reviewed 10 cases of sporadic sebaceous carcinoma and 1 case involving a patient with a family history consistent with Muir-Torre syndrome. Immunohistochemistry was used to analyze the presence of 4 mismatch repair proteins (MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, and PMS2) in these tumors. DNA was extracted from ...

A 13-month-old boy and a 2-week-old girl, who were considered to be anophthalmic and who later each developed a cystic lesion in the left orbit with protrusion of the lower eyelid, were studied. The fellow eye in case 1 was subsequently found to be microphthalmic with cyst and was normal in case 2. Histopathologic study of each case revealed a cyst lined externally by dense fibrous connective tissue to which skeletal muscle and adipose tissue were attached. The inner aspect of the cyst ...

Learning Objectives: After studying this article, the partcipant should be able to: 1. Categorize the patterns of midface fractures and the frequency of associated mandibular and frontal bone and nasoethmoid factures. 2. Assess the patterns for treatment by either anterior or combined anterior and posterior approaches according to the need for facial width correction. 3. Evaluate the most frequent problems and complications observed following complicated facial injury repair and to ...
