1/23. Endocapsular hematoma: report of a case following glaucoma surgery in a pseudophakic eye.

    The authors describe a case of an endocapsular hematoma that occurred in a 69-year-old pseudophakic diabetic male following mitomycin C (MMC) augmented trabeculectomy for neovascular glaucoma (NVG). The clinical course of the patient is described, and the unique features of this case are presented and discussed. The endocapsular hematoma absorbed in 6 weeks with conservative management. The patient regained the preoperative visual acuity of 20/30, and his intraocular pressure was controlled without any glaucoma medication. The iris neovascularization regressed. This case is the first report of an endocapsular hematoma following glaucoma filtering surgery in a pseudophakic eye with neovascular glaucoma.

2/23. Sterile interface keratitis associated with micropannus hemorrhage after laser in situ keratomileusis.

    Numerous etiologies have been suspected to lead to sterile interface keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis. This tan interface haze with a rippled appearance has been called Sands of the Sahara. We present 2 cases in which red blood cells entered the interface after a small hemorrhage from peripheral corneal vascularization during the microkeratome pass. Although this bleeding was controlled and all visible blood cells were removed at surgery, both patients developed the appearance of a focal interface keratitis on the first postoperative day.

3/23. Capsular block syndrome and pseudoexpulsive hemorrhage.

    Capsular block syndrome (CBS) has been recognized as a cause of immediate or delayed postoperative accumulation of fluid behind an intraocular lens/capsulorhexis complex. Hydrodissection-related rupture of the posterior capsule may be considered a variant of CBS that can manifest intraoperatively. We describe another intraoperative situation related to CBS in which fluid loculation during hydrodissection mimics a threatened expulsive hemorrhage.

4/23. Management of acute surgical orbital haemorrhage: an otorhinolaryngological and ophthalmological perspective.

    This retrospective report describes the management and outcome of seven patients who suffered an acute surgical orbital haemorrhage (ASOH), secondary to a surgical procedure performed on either the sinuses, orbits or eyelids. All patients but one recovered their pre-operative vision. A management plan is outlined on how to assess and tackle this complication, so that the ENT surgeon may be better prepared to meet such an acute surgical emergency, should it arise.

5/23. Acute haemorrhagic keratoconjunctivitis following laser in situ keratomileusis.

    We report two cases of acute haemorrhagic keratoconjunctivitis which occurred following laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) during an ongoing epidemic. Both cases underwent preoperative investigation and surgery on the same day. The possible sources of contamination include the paramedical staff, the contact instruments used for performing preoperative investigation, surgeon, nurse, surgical instruments and eye drops. However, the flap was intact with no haze or regression and at 1 year follow up, the visual acuity was maintained at 6/6 in both the patients. We recommend greater caution while performing contact investigations and strict surgical asepsis during LASIK surgery, routinely as well as during epidemics of conjunctivitis.

6/23. Diagnosis of hemophilia made after intraoperative bleeding during attempted penetrating keratoplasty in an elderly patient.

    PURPOSE: To report an unusual case where the diagnosis of hemophilia was made after attempted penetrating keratoplasty in an elderly patient. methods: A 75 year old white male with a full-thickness corneal scar in the visual axis and a visually significant cataract OD was to undergo penetrating keratoplasty and cataract extraction with lens implantation for visual rehabilitation. There was no history of bleeding diathesis given. RESULTS: During placement of the Flieringa ring, a progressively enlarging 360 degrees subconjunctival hemorrhage was observed. Given the unusual bleeding,the procedure was aborted and the patientwas referred to the hematology service for further evaluation. Laboratory studies revealed a diagnosis of atypical hemophilia of mild severity. CONCLUSIONS: The initial diagnosis of hemophilia in any elderly patient is unusual. This case is even more unusual asthe diagnosis of a bleeding disorder was first considered after excessive subconjunctival hemorrhage developed during attempted penetrating keratoplasty.

7/23. Management of traumatic optic neuropathy.

    Visual loss caused by trauma to the optic nerve is a well-recognized sequela to cranio-maxillofacial trauma. The authors reviewed their experience with 90 patients with pure traumatic optic neuropathy and optic nerve trauma with concomitant maxillofacial injuries. All patients were treated with intravenous steroids. Those not improving underwent extracranial optic canal decompression. patients with initial visual acuity of 20/100 or better all responded favorably with improvement in visual acuity or visual field to a course of intravenous megadose corticosteroids. patients with initial vision of 20/200 or worse who failed to respond to corticosteroids may have improved visual function after undergoing extracranial optic canal decompression. Preoperative and postoperative computed tomography scans on 6 patients enhanced with intrathecal iopamidol indicate the site of optic nerve compression to be at the optic canal. This article discusses the diagnosis and the medical and surgical treatment of pure and complex optic nerve injuries.

8/23. Intraoperative capsular block syndrome masquerading as expulsive hemorrhage.

    PURPOSE: To describe the clinical features of two cases of intraoperative capsular block syndrome (CBS) mimicking expulsive hemorrhage. SETTING: The Eye Institute at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, National Healthcare Group, singapore. methods: Two case reports. RESULTS: Two patients underwent phacoemulsification under retrobulbar anesthesia and developed severe globe hardening, shallow anterior chamber (AC) and uveal prolapse intraoperatively after hydrodissection. The AC spontaneously deepened in one patient and the operation was converted to extracapsular cataract surgery on suspicion of CBS with posterior capsule rupture, which was confirmed after nucleus expression; anterior vitrectomy was done and an anterior chamber lens implanted. At the eight post-operative month, his best-corrected visual acuity was 6/24 secondary to an epiretinal membrane in the macula. CBS, however, was not recognized in the other patient and caused posterior lens dislocation during attempted phacoemulsification. This patient underwent vitrectomy, removal of the lens nucleus and insertion of a posterior chamber intraocular lens in the sulcus the next day. His best-corrected visual acuity was 6/9 at the tenth postoperative month. CONCLUSIONS: Intraoperative CBS may mimic expulsive hemorrhage. early diagnosis of this condition and proper management optimizes the visual outcome.

9/23. thrombocytopenia and the risks of intraocular surgery.

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: In thrombocytopenia, a hemorrhagic diathesis is usually present due to a low platelet count and has been related to the development of cataracts and retinopathy. The concomitant administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can increase the hemorrhagic diathesis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of thrombocytopenia during and after intraocular surgery. patients AND methods: A retrospective study of medical files of patients who had undergone cataract and glaucoma filtering surgery and were diagnosed as having thrombocytopenia between 1994--1995 and 1998--1999 was conducted. Eight patients with a total of 11 surgical procedures were included in this study. RESULTS: Hemorrhagic complications occurred in 2 of the 11 procedures, for an incidence of 18%. These 2 cases are described in detail. CONCLUSIONS: The current study confirms that thrombocytopenia is a significant risk factor for perioperative bleeding in ocular surgery. A routine questionnaire should be completed before ocular surgery and a complete blood cell count obtained in suspect cases. Consultation with a hematologist is warranted in cases of thrombocytopenia.

10/23. Topical thrombin-related corneal calcification.

    PURPOSE: To report a highly unusual case of corneal calcification after brief intraoperative use of topical thrombin. methods: A 44-year-old man underwent sclerouvectomy for ciliochoroidal leiomyoma, during which 35 UNIH/mL lyophilized bovine thrombin mixed with 9 mL of diluent containing 1500 mmol/mL calcium chloride was used. From the first postoperative day, corneal and anterior lenticular capsule calcifications developed, and corneal involvement slightly enlarged thereafter. RESULTS: A year later, 2 corneal punch biopsies confirmed calcification mainly in the Bowman layer. Topical treatment with 1.5% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid significantly restored corneal clarity. Six months later, a standard extracapsular cataract extraction with intraocular lens placement improved visual acuity to 20/60. CONCLUSION: This case suggests that topical thrombin drops with elevated calcium concentrations may cause acute corneal calcification in Bowman layer and on the anterior lens capsule.
