1/8. eye injuries associated with paintball guns.

    AIMS: This study identifies the various types of ocular injuries sustained after blunt trauma with a paintball fired from a paintball gun. methods: We report two patients who sustained injury to an eye after being shot with a paintball and review similar cases presented in the world literature. The type of injury sustained and the final visual acuity obtained after a paintball hit to the eye are examined. RESULTS: The two boys presented were hit in the eye with a paintball resulting in lens subluxation, hyphema formation, and angle recession. cataract extraction was required in both cases. One boy also had an optic neuropathy and a choroidal rupture. A review of the literature reveals a variety of injuries occur after a paintball hit to the eye. In some of the cases, the damage to the eye has led to loss of vision and at times loss of the eye. CONCLUSIONS: Paintball guns can cause devastating ocular injuries. Wearing protective eye and face gear during this game is essential. We recommend that an anti-fog face mask with a one-piece polycarbonate eye shield be worn by those participating in paintball games.

2/8. Bottle-cork injury to the eye: a review of 13 cases.

    PURPOSE: To analyze the anatomic and functional consequences of wine-cork injury to the eye in relation to the patient's age and the type of cork and wine. methods: We retrospectively studied 13 patients, six women and seven men, presenting to our department with bottle-cork injury to the eye between January 1999 and June 2001. RESULTS: All patients presented with closed-globe injury according to Kuhn et al's classification. All the cases were injured by bottle corks from sparkling wine: white in ten cases and red in three. Mean visual acuity at admission was 20/100 (range, hand motion to 20/20). The most frequent early injury was anterior chamber hyphema (84.6%), followed by corneal injury (62.2%), ocular hypertension (46.1%), lens subluxation (30.8%), traumatic cataract (23.1%), and post-traumatic retinal edema (23.1%). Mean final visual acuity was 20/25; the follow-up ranged from 3 to 29 months, averaging 16.1 months. Late complications were as follows: pupil motility anomalies (38.5%), traumatic cataract (30.8%), iridodialysis (15.4%), traumatic optic neuropathy (7.7%), post-traumatic glaucoma (7.7%), and traumatic maculopathy (15.4%). Surgical treatment was necessary in two cases (15.4%). CONCLUSIONS: Bottle-cork eye injuries account for 10.8% of post-traumatic hospital admissions to our department. Most of them are due to sparkling white wine served at room temperature. There is no correlation between ocular injury and the eye-bottle distance or the type of cork.

3/8. Magnetic susceptibility artifact in orbital magnetic resonance imaging.

    Case report of a 16-year-old boy presenting with total hyphema due to blunt trauma to the left eye. During a subsequent cinematic MRI scan to identify salvageable lateral rectus muscle, the attachment of the left lateral rectus was obscured by a 20-mm diameter signal void. A subsequent CT scan for a suspected metallic foreign body revealed the muscle attachment after all. The theoretical explanations for this finding are discussed.

4/8. Staphyloma: a complication of surgery for hyphema.

    Anterior staphylomas developed in two young patients as a postoperative complication of hyphema extractions through corneoscleral sections. The patients, aged five and nine years, underwent evacuation of the hyphemas after rebleeding caused medically unmanageable intraocular pressure elevations. Postoperatively, both patients received corticosteroids and had elevation of intraocular pressure. To repair the staphyloma, a scleral overlay patch graft was performed in one patient, but the intraocular pressure remained elevated and the staphyloma gradually recurred. Enucleation of the eye was eventually required. Resection of the staphylomatous area with lensectomy and complete vitrectomy was performed in the second patient. After four years of follow-up this patient continues to do well.

5/8. Bee sting-induced ocular changes.

    A six-year-old boy was stung by a bee on his right cornea. A severe conjunctival injection, chemosis, marked corneal edema, and hyphema developed. A partially dislocated lens, partial iris atrophy, and cataract formation were subsequently noted. He was treated with systemic and topical corticosteroids. Later, the subluxated cataract was removed through the pars plana approach.

6/8. Intracameral tissue plasminogen activator: management of a fibrin clot occluding a Molteno tube.

    We report the use of intracameral tissue plasminogen activator to dissolve a fibrin clot occluding a Molteno tube in the immediate postoperative period. This technique is an effective alternative to awaiting clot lysis or reoperation with minimal risk. The only complication was a small, layering hyphema.

7/8. Ultrasound biomicroscopy in anterior ocular trauma.

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The authors investigated the role of ultrasound biomicroscopy after ocular trauma. patients AND methods: Ultrasound biomicroscopy was performed in six eyes of six patients at the new york Eye and ear Infirmary after a variety of traumatic ocular injuries. RESULTS: Eyes with angle recession, iridodialysis, cyclodialysis, hyphema, an intraocular foreign body, scleral laceration, and subluxed crystalline lens were imaged without complication. Ultrasound biomicroscopy aided in the diagnosis when visualization was limited by media opacities or distorted anterior segment anatomy. CONCLUSION: Ultrasound biomicroscopy is a safe and effective adjunctive tool for the clinical assessment and management of ocular trauma, especially when visualization is limited and multiple traumatic injuries are involved.

8/8. Bungee cord-associated ocular injuries.

    PURPOSE: To report ocular injuries associated with the use of bungee cords. METHOD: Four patients with bungee cord-associated ocular trauma are presented. RESULTS: Four eyes of four patients demonstrated severe contusion injuries associated with bungee cord trauma. Ocular injuries in the four eyes included a variable combination of corneal abrasion, hyphema, iridodialysis, anterior chamber angle recession, secondary glaucoma, lens subluxation, vitreous hemorrhage, and retinal detachment. Three of the four eyes required ophthalmic surgery. All eyes had anterior chamber angle recession and required continuing ophthalmic care. CONCLUSION: Bungee cords may be associated with severe ocular injury and should be used with caution.
