The Eye Institute of West Florida Rövid összefoglaló Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure performed on humans today. The postoperative regimen includes a combination of steroids, NSAIDs non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics.
Those are used to decrease the possibility of infection, inflammation that may lead to corneal and macular edema and pain management. There are several FDA approved agents either for topical use as single drug delivery or combination solutions for topical use as well; furthermore, there are slow release vehicles that may be placed at the time of surgery or postoperatively at the lower punctum.
The latter provides a less intense and demanding drop schedule and may improve patient compliance.
Bullous keratopathy - Corneal swelling after eye surgery - A State of Sight #123
The hypothesis of the current study is that topical steroids or intracamerally injected steroids as slow release vehicles, demonstrate the same efficacy of controlling post cataract pain and inflammation.
We will assess one objective outcome measure, anterior chamber inflammation.
This will provide a direct index of the efficacy of the steroidal agents used. Furthermore, a subjective outcome measure, ocular pain, will also be assessed.
In cases where a patient in either of the two groups has sever inflammation, rescue medications will be applied, increasing swelling in retina after cataract surgery dosage of topical steroidal agents and the patient will be followed closely until resolved. The study will include 50 consecutive patients, men and women ages 40 to 90 years old, with visually significant cataract that received bilateral cataract surgery using either the manual technique or femtosecond assisted cataract surgery.
Bilateral surgery is common practice and is not performed on the same day. There is a one week time interval between the eyes receiving cataract extraction. The patients that we will enroll in the suggested study will require and will receive bilateral cataract surgery with one week time interval between the two eyes.
There are no restrictions on racial or ethnic origin. Átfogó állapot.
