Coralliform Cataract

Early-Onset Non-Syndromic Cataract


Presentation

  • It not only presents diverse pictures and images from clinical practice, it also includes the latest findings in the field.[books.google.com]
  • This novel missense mutation co-segregated with the affected members of the pedigree, but is not present in the unaffected relatives or 100 normal individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • If so, thorough physical, as well as visual examinations should be performed on all members of the immediate family when coralliform cataract is present in one family member.[journals.lww.com]
  • Yanoff and Duker presents practical, expert, concise guidance on nearly every ophthalmic condition and procedure, equipping you to efficiently overcome whatever clinical challenges you may face.[books.google.ro]
  • Differential diagnosis Congenital cataracts presenting with leukocoria need to be differentiated from various other conditions presenting with leukocoria such as retinoblastoma, retinopathy of prematurity, persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV[ikeyes.blogspot.com]
Asymptomatic
  • Their father and 2 older brothers, all of whom underwent childhood cataract surgery, also harbored the mutation while the 2 asymptomatic immediate family members did not.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • The results further suggested that the extracellular loop was the mutation hotspot of GJA3.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This family had a tendency toward diabetes which suggests that metabolic disturbances may be an etiological factor.[journals.lww.com]
  • Suggested reading • Etiopathogenesis of cataract • Symptoms of cataract • Complications of cataract[slideshare.net]
  • These results also suggest that CRYGD is the causative gene for the coralliform cataract observed in this family.[bmcmedgenet.biomedcentral.com]

Treatment

  • Throughout the book, the pathology, examination, anesthesia, surgical treatment and nursing care of pediatric lens disorders are discussed in detail.[books.google.com]
  • Make optimal use of the newest drug therapies , including Anti-VEGF treatment for wet ARMD and bevacizumab treatment for complications of diabetes.[books.google.ro]
  • 例句 Treatment for acute angle - closure glaucoma by the extraction of ultraemulsified cataract 超聲乳化術治療閉角型青光眼合併白內障臨床觀察 Effect of improved incision on astigmatism after extraction of cataract 改良手術切口對白內障術后散光的影響 The good news from the battlefields is becoming[dict.site]
  • AIM:To analyze the clinical results of cyclophotocoagulation followed by other anti-glaucoma surgeries in the treatment of refractory glaucoma.[ingentaconnect.com]

Prognosis

  • Morphology:• The morphology of cataract is important for several reasons: it can give a clue to the age ofonset, to the visual prognosis, it may suggest heritability, and it may give a clue to the aetiology.[slideshare.net]
  • Macular Function Tests: These are done to preoperatively assess the postoperative visual outcome (potential vision) based on which a prognosis is given to the patient.[medicalgeek.com]
  • However, it must be born in mind that visual prognosis in most of the unilateral cases is very poor even after timely operation because correction of aphakia and prevention of amblyopia in infants is an uphill task. D. Surgical procedures.[ikeyes.blogspot.com]

  • (MCQ) visual prognosi s in most of the unilateral cases is very poor even after timely operation Surgical procedures.[umedico.com]

Etiology

  • This family had a tendency toward diabetes which suggests that metabolic disturbances may be an etiological factor.[journals.lww.com]
  • […] coralliform cataract是什么意思 沪江词库精选coralliform cataract是什么意思、英语单词推荐 例句 cataracts are classified according to the age of the individual, etiology, and the morphologic characteristics of the opacity 白内障是根据患者的年龄、病因和晶状体混浊的形态学特征来分类的。[hujiang.com]
  • Furthermore, it is possible that some of these genes will be implicated in the more common age related cataract, which also has a genetic component to its etiology.[scienceopen.com]
  • Etiology unknown. Probably transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait. In 1922, using the slit-lamp, Vogt documented the features of the heritable cataract.[whonamedit.com]
  • Etiology Exact etiology is not known. Some factors which have been associated with certain types of cataracts are described below: I. Heredity. Genetically-determined cataract is due to an anomaly in the chromosomal pattern of the individual.[ikeyes.blogspot.com]

Epidemiology

  • Asrani S, Freedman S, Hasselblad V et al. (1997) Epidemiology of cataract in childhood. J Cataract Refract Surg 23: 601–604 Google Scholar 2.[link.springer.com]
  • Epidemiology:• The incidence is about 1 in 2000, andapproximately one-third of congenital cataractsare familial, one-third are associated with asyndrome, and one-third are isolated.(Friedman, NJ & Kaiser, PK, 2009) 5.[slideshare.net]
  • Senile Cataract Epidemiology Global 38 million people are blind 41 % because of cataract National 71 % of blindness in Nepal is because of cataract About 72 % of blindness in India is caused by Cataract Progression I.[medicalgeek.com]

Pathophysiology

Prevention

  • .• Timing for surgery-The critical period for development of fixation reflex is between 6 weeks & 6 months of age.So, best time for surgery is before this period to prevent stimulus-deprivation amblyopia.[slideshare.net]
  • Flurbiprofen 0.3% a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug prevent release of prostaglandins during surgery thereby preventing intraoperative constriction of pupil that may be caused by surgical trauma. These drops are instilled every 15 minutes.[sdhawan.com]
  • Bilateral dense cataracts should be removed early (within 6 weeks of birth) to prevent stimulus deprivation amblyopia. 3. Unilateral dense cataract should preferably be removed as early as possible (within days) after birth.[ikeyes.blogspot.com]
