Surgical technics in limbal stem cells transplantation

Limbal stem cells (LSC) deficiency is one among the causes of corneal transparency loss. The only effective management is LSC transplantation. In available techniques the source of donor tissue containing LSC can be healthy fellow eye (CLAU, EVELAU), living-related (lr-CLAL, lr-EVELAL) or cadaveric donor (c-CLAL).

Functional improvement of injured retina following the adjuvant stem cell-based therapy. Preliminary report

The purpose of this study was to appraise the functional response of damaged retina to the stem cell-based therapy in mice. The majority of disorders leading to the irreversible vision loss in the developed world is caused by retinal degeneration. Since, recent reports emphasized regenerative potential of bone marrow stem marrow stem/ progenitor cells (SPCs), we investigated here the beneficial effect of intravenously administrated SPCs on regeneration of acutely injured retina.

FELINE HERPESVIRUS-1: OCULAR MANIFESTATIONS, DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OPTIONS

Feline herpesvirus-1 (FHV-1) is a major cause of feline morbidity. Following exposure to the virus, virtually all cats become persistently infected and many of these will develop recrudescent disease on one or more occasions during their life. Ocular manifestations include conjunctivitis, corneal ulceration and keratitis. In severe cases the condition can be blinding.

SPRAWOZDANIE Z POBYTU NA KURSIE OKULISTYCZNYM W USA

W czerwcu 2012 roku na Uniwersytecie Stanowym Północnej Karoliny w USA odbył się kurs okulistyczny (Basic Science Course), który organizowany jest co dwa lata na Wydziale Medycyny Weterynaryjnej w Raleigh (stolica Karoliny Północnej). Zadaniem kursu było poszerzenie wiedzy teoretycznej dla lekarzy zajmujących się okulistyką zwierząt, zarówno tych którzy już praktykują i kurs traktują jako uzupełnienie lub przypomnienie wiedzy, jak i dla młodych lekarzy weterynarii będących na tzw. rezydenturze dla których jest to kurs obowiązkowy.

TRABECULECTOMY SURGERY IN THE TREATMENT OF GLAUCOMA IN DOGS

Aqueous humor is produced by the ciliary body by active secretion and filtration of plasma. Most of the aqueous humor flows from the posterior chamber, through the pupil, to the anterior chamber, and goes out at the iridocorneal angle into the intrascleral venous plexus. The balance between formation and drainage maintains intraocular pressure. In glaucoma the pressure in the eye increased.

SURGICAL TREATMENT OF THE ADVANCED GLAUCOMA

The paper presents current problems associated with advanced glaucoma treatment and new trends in therapeutic management. Evaluation of the disease progression with only visual field testing may not be sufficient in such cases. Sensitive indicator of the deterioration is visual acuity reduction, which may also be a parameter used in surgery results estimation. Treatment of advanced glaucoma should concentrate on surgical methods because of more effective IOP control and its fluctuations.

Eyelid agenesis in a cat, clinical case.

Eyelid defects in cats are very frequently caused by trauma, after surgical removal of the tumor, or they can be diagnosed in the cases of complete (agenesis), or partial (coloboma) absence of all the eyelid layers. Agenesis or coloboma of the eyelids is the commonest congenital eyelid abnormality of cats, both, domestical and wild. The most frequently affected region is the lateral part of the upper eyelid, with occasionally involving of the medial and lateral canthus.

What is it “dry eye” and how to treat it?

Tears are essential to the comfort of the eyes. Without tears, eyes become irritated. An adequate supply of tears covering the partially exposed anterior segment of the globe and associated adnexa is necessary for optical integrity, maintenance of the cornea and normal eye function. This fluid is called the preocularl tear film PTF (Samuelson). Without tears (KCS) develops (Bryla).
