FAQ - Uveitis, Posterior
(Powered by Yahoo! Answers)

what is posterior uveitis and what is the cause?

how long does the treatment last for and could it lead to blindness

In anterior uveitis, the inflammation is near the front of the eye and eye drops can reach the source of the inflammation.

In intermediate uveitis, eye drops may well be able to reach the area of inflammation and sometimes injections around the eye can also be used to “deliver” the drugs where they are needed, slightly further back in the eye.

In Posterior uveitis, the inflammation is at the back of the eye and drops simply won’t reach the affected area. This requires a different approach and this is why the same drugs, (usually a steroid) are taken systemically (in tablet form). If the posterior uveitis is caused by a virus then the same applies; the antiviral drug will be taken by tablet or injection, instead of by drops.  (+ info)

What percentage of Uveitis sufferers go completely blind?

If you have any idea, please let me know. I found out that I had Uveitis 4 or 5 years ago and already have minor vision problems (I'm 18), mostly blurriness. i also have a blind spot (bigger than normal) in my left eye and cant see very well if i'm looking only through my left eye. Also, can Visual Prosthesis be done on someone with Uveitis? Thanks

uveitis treated properly: very, very few "go blind". near zero.

UN-treated uveitis: a decent possibility of losing vision.

"visual prosthesis" is nowhere near practical application, but in theory it would only be used in someone with NO eye or a completely blind eye.  (+ info)

What is the approximate distance from the posterior teeth to the anterior teeth?

The posterior teeth of the human dentition are designed to crush food with 4 times more force than the anterior teeth. What is the approximate distance from the posterior teeth to the anterior teeth if the molar teeth are 4cm away from the fulcrum-temporomandibular joint.

Notes; The human jaw is a class 3 lever system
Notes; The average distance from the muscles to the fulcrum is 2cm and the incisors are 10cm away.

Sorry I don't have idea about that. But i can surely tell you that you will get your answer at http://www.dentech.co.in or Call 044-32545564, 044-21730801, 044-65175804  (+ info)

Can a person with scleritis and uveitis wear contact lenses?

In the last 2 years I have had bouts with scleritis and uveitis in my left eye.One time the doc told me I could wear contacts when I wasn't experiencing a flare up of either condition.Six weeks later he says that he never said that and I can't wear lenses.
I'm going for a second opinion Friday.I'm just curious if anyone has experience with this? Thanks

You shouldn't wear contacts if you have an eye infection. The risk of reinfection is really high

What exercises can i do for the posterior head of my shoulders?

I usually include the Z-press in my shoulder routine, but are there any other exercises for a shoulder's posterior head?


For this exercise, you will need one dumbell. Start with a light to moderate weight (similar to what you'd use for a rear lateral raise) until you get the hang of the movement.

Lie flat on your back on the floor with your legs perfectly stiff and completely straight. The soles of your feet should NOT be touching the floor. Hold the dumbell directly above your chest in your left hand (arm straight and stiff) and lay your right arm flat on the floor directly to the side with your palm facing up.

Now, keeping your left arm stiff and straight, lower the dumbell down towards your right hand, rolling your entire body onto your right side as you do so. To start the roll onto your side, all you need to do is start bringing the dumbell over and around a little. The weight of the dumbell will start your body rolling over.

DO NOT LET IT DROP! This should be a very controlled movement all the way down. If you had to, you should be able to stop at any given point along the way. Push your entire right arm hard against the floor to help control the descent of the left arm.

At the bottom of the movement, you should be laying completely on your side (legs still stiff and straight) with the dumbell laying on top of your bottom hand as though clapping.

Now you're going to go the other way. Do a rear delt lateral raise with the left hand (that's holding the dumbell), raising your arm back to vertical.

CRITICAL POINT - As you do this lateral raise with the left arm, push down hard against the floor with your entire right arm. It should feel as though you are trying to open both of your arms out wide as you raise the dumbell and roll your body towards your back. This means you'll be not only working the rear delt of the left side with a dumbell lateral raise, you'll be working the rear delt of the right side while you push against the floor and rotate your body.

This push and roll makes the exercise into a bodyweight exercise for the rear delts...exercises that move your body through space activate more muscle fibers than exercises that simply move the resistance. This exercise accomplishes both types of movements at the same time!

When your left arm is vertical, you should be laying flat on your back again. Carefully switch the dumbell over to your right hand then lay your left arm flat on the ground, palm facing up. As before, lower the dumbell down and around and roll onto your left side, pushing down against the ground with your entire left arm, using the left arm to control the descent.

Be absolutely sure to keep your legs stiff and perfectly straight through the entire exercise. If your knees are bent or your feet are on the floor, you will be more likely to push against the ground with your feet, removing tension from the arm that's pushing against the floor. ALL the pushing should be done at the shoulder.

Keep repeating this maneuver for a full set of 6 to 8 reps. It will take a few sets through to get an idea of how much weight you can use so don't be afraid to experiment. If you use too much weight, you won't be able to control the descent of the dumbell and it will drop down into your other hand. If you use too light a weight, you won't feel the exercise as strongly, so be sure to add weight if and when you can.  (+ info)

What is the 1s posterior tooth? And if you dont know that, does a resin composite filling mean a cavity?

Thats basically it- I was just wondering because i have two front half-fake teeth (i broke them) and i wondering whether the resin composite filling applies to that tooth, and whether that is the 1s posterior, because i have one on my bill.

No, your front teeth are called the anterior teeth. Anterior teeth include your incisors and canines. Posterior teeth are all the teeth behind your canines, premolars, and molars. A resin composite filling is a type of dental material used to fill or fix any defect in the tooth structure. It most likely means that you do have a cavity that was filled, or one that the dentist is planning on filling. If this is not the case you may want to call your insurance plan and double check that the dentist has billed you correctly. Hope this helps!  (+ info)

How do you tell if you have a posterior nosebleed?

The other day I had a normal nosebleed and it went away in a couple of minutes. But for the past couple of days I've felt this liquid running down my throat, and I don't know whether it's blood from a posterior nosebleed or mucus from my sinuses. How do you tell? I took a light and looked at my throat for a few minutes but I don't see any blood.

saw no blood? well next time you feel it happening again, just swab with a q-tip, if you see nothing, then try hauking a lougue(or however you spell it) and if you only get mucus, theres your answer...but, if you still think something is wrong, or you do get blood....you need a doctors opinion..  (+ info)

what effect does a posterior placenta with a baby in longitudinal lie will have during labor?

At 32 weeks, the baby is said to be lying longitudinally while the placenta is at a posterior position, is it ok?

longitudinal means the baby is lying vertically in the uterus which is great
and posterior placenta means the placenta is attached toward the back wall of your uterus which again is fine.

I don't see any problems from this, seems completely normal to me and you shouldn't have any problems delivering the baby!

Good luck  (+ info)

Can an injury to the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve due to surgery heal?

I recently had piriformis and sciatic nerve surgery. My surgeon seems to have either injured or severed the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve during the procedure. The back of my thigh has been numb with a burning feeling inside the leg since the surgery over two months ago. What are the chances that this will heal?

It's if severed I don't believe so,,,but then again,,they have been doing hand transplants  (+ info)
