PURPOSE To describe a case of spontaneous wound dehiscence (WD) after complete suture removal in a patient with macular dystrophy who underwent deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). METHODS A 47-year-old man with macular corneal dystrophy underwent DALK. Intraoperative Descemet membrane perforation was noted. The postoperative period was complicated(More)
A 59-year-old woman presented 1 month after cataract surgery in the right eye with a stromal infiltrate at the site of the cataract surgery wound. The visual acuity was perception of light with accurate projection. Corneal scraping of the infiltrate revealed septate hyphae. There was no response to 6 weeks of therapy with topical fortified antibiotic agents(More)
BACKGROUND Limb girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) is a phenotypic expression of a heterogeneous group of diseases and sarcoglycanopathy is one of the causes of LGMD. There is only one study on sarcoglycanopathies in the Indian literature. No data is available from northern India. MATERIALS AND METHODS All cases of muscular dystrophies, which were diagnosed(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) after cataract surgery in an operated case of deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). METHODS Phacoemulsification surgery with intraocular lens implantation was performed in the left eye of a 65-year-old woman who had previously undergone DALK. DMD was noted intraoperatively, for which(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the structural and functional outcomes of eyes with perforated corneal ulcers undergoing penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) under topical anesthesia. METHODS A prospective analysis of 17 consecutive cases that underwent PKP under topical anesthesia, where infiltrative anesthesia was contraindicated or general anesthesia could not be given(More)
PURPOSE To describe a surgical technique of deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) to treat patients with descemetocele. METHODS Twelve eyes of 12 patients with central or paracentral descemetocele after resolved microbial keratitis underwent viscoelastic-assisted DALK. The mean follow-up of the cases was 19.91 ± 15.80 months (range: 6-48 months). (More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the morphologic features of acute hydrops and treatment success using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). DESIGN Prospective interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Fourteen patients (14 eyes) affected by keratoconus with acute corneal hydrops. INTERVENTION Patients with acute hydrops were treated with intracameral injection of 0.15(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of nonresolution of acute hydrops despite treatment with intracameral perfluoropropane (C3F8) gas because of fish egging of the gas bubble. METHODS An acute hydrops in a 25-year-old female patient with keratoconus was treated with intracameral injection of 0.15 mL of isoexpansile C3F8 (14%). RESULTS Slit-lamp examination showed(More)
PURPOSE To study the outcomes of successful reenclavation of subluxated iris-fixated phakic intraocular lenses (pIOLs). SETTING Tertiary eyecare referral center. METHODS Interventional case series comprised eyes with a subluxated Verisyse pIOL that had successful reenclavation of 1 haptic. A comparison of outcomes between primary pIOL implantation(More)
BACKGROUND To report two cases of corneal infection after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). METHODS Two eyes of two patients demonstrated varying clinical presentations of microbial keratitis after DSAEK. At the initial presentation, the keratitis involved the host cornea alone in case 1, whereas in case 2, the posterior(More)
