OBJECTIVE To study the utility of a commercially available small, portable ultra-high definition (HD) camera (GoPro Hero 4) for intraoperative recording. METHODS A head mount was used to fix the camera on the operating surgeon's head. Due care was taken to protect the patient's identity. The recorded video was subsequently edited and used as a teaching(More)
PURPOSE To report the cosmetic and functional outcomes of subciliary incision for external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). METHODS Prospective interventional study reporting subciliary incision to perform external DCR for primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction. Successful functional outcome was defined as relief from epiphora, and patent lacrimal(More)
PURPOSE To describe a case of diffuse choroidal hemangioma with exudative retinal detachment treated successfully with oral propranolol. METHODS Single interventional case report of a 14-year-old boy, known case of Sturge-Weber syndrome, presented with decreased vision in the right eye since 2 months. Presenting vision was finger-counting at 3 m.(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the etiological factors contributing to the failure of a dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective review was performed in 100 consecutive patients who were diagnosed with anatomically failed DCR at presentation to a tertiary care hospital over a 5-year period from 2010 to 2015. Patient(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to assess the anatomical accuracy of navigation technology in localizing defined anatomic landmarks within the orbit with respect to type of technology (optical versus electromagnetic systems) and position of the dynamic reference marker on the skull (vertex, temporal, parietal, and mastoid) using in vitro navigation-enabled(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to report the preliminary experience of using telescopes, which were enabled for navigation guidance, and their utility in complex endoscopic lacrimal surgeries. METHODS Navigation enabling of the telescope was achieved by using the AxiEM™ malleable neuronavigation shunt stylet. Image-guided dacryolocalization was(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to determine the acceptability levels of different styles of the doctors' dress and the expectations from the initial phases of physician-patient encounter. METHODS The study design was a cross-sectional descriptive type using the survey methodology. A survey based on a five-point questionnaire was performed on all(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to illustrate the techniques and usefulness of navigation-guided computed tomography angiography in ophthalmic plastic surgery. METHODS Stereotactic surgeries using computed tomography angiography as the intraoperative image-guiding tool were performed in 3 patients. One patient had widespread eyelid and orbital vascular(More)
Schwannomas are benign, encapsulated, primary neurilemmal tumors composed of proliferating Schwann cells. Schwannomas are commonly seen in the orbit, but are rare on the epibulbar surface. Herein, we report a case of a 12-year-old boy who presented to us with a slow-growing painless subconjunctival mass in the left eye. There was no intraocular extension of(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the techniques and utility of 3-dimensional reconstruction (3DR) of the target pathologies for subsequent navigation guidance in ophthalmic plastic surgery. DESIGN Prospective interventional case series. METHODS Stereotactic surgeries using 3D reconstruction of target lesions as the intraoperative image-guiding tool were(More)
