  1. 1. Long-term outcome after cataract surgery : a longitudinal study

    Author : Britta Lundqvist; Eva Mönestam; Ulf Stenevi; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cataract; cataract surgery outcome; longitudinal study; subjective visual acuity; Ophtalmiatrics; Oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology; oftalmiatrik;

    Abstract : Background Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure carried out in the developed world and surgery volumes have increased considerably during the last decades. Various aspects of the surgical procedure, including surgical incision size and intraocular lens materials, have changed substantially, improving the safety and the quality of the outcome. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quality and complications after cataract surgery

    Author : Margrethe Rønbeck; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Research about IOL parameters' influence on posterior capsule opacification (PCO) and lens glistenings may be rapidly applied in clinical practice and may help the industry to manufacture intraocular lenses (IOLs) with higher quality, which will be of benefit to the patients. In paper I we compared the influence on PCO of 3 different IOLs; a sharp-edged hydrophobic acrylic, a round-edged silicone and a round-edged heparin-surfacemodified polymethylmethacrylate (HSM-PMMA) IOL in a 5 year randomized prospective study with 180 patients.

    Author : Niklas Wallentin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Posterior capsule opacification PCO ; after-cataract; lens epithelial cell; proliferation; aqueous humor AqH ; inflammation; growth factors; basic fibroblast growth factor bFGF ; transforming growth factor-β TGF-β ; extracapsular cataract extraction; corneal incision; rabbit; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; Biopharmacy; Biofarmaci; galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics;

    Abstract : The clinical and economic significance of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) makes it an important public health problem. A better understanding of the pathogenesis in order to reduce/prevent PCO is needed. For this purpose an experimental model in the rabbit was used and further developed in thisthesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inflammatory response after cataract surgery : randomized controlled clinical and laboratory studies of different surgical techniques

    Author : Carl-Gustaf Laurell; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Cataract extraction; phacoemulsification; inflammation; blood-aqueousbarrier; anti-inflammatory agents; heparin surface modified intraocular lens; fluorophotometry; prostaglandins; after-cataract; corneal oedema; lasers; comparative study; randomize;

    Abstract : During the last few years the phacoemulsification technique for cataract extraction has improved considerably. Because of this development phacoemulsification has recently superseded extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) as the preferred method. READ MORE

  5. 5. Outcome after surgery of congenital cataract

    Author : Anna Lundvall; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Congenital cataract; cataract surgery; intraocular lens; infant; paediatric; rabbit; complication; glaucoma; after-cataract; posterior capsule opacification.;

    Abstract : The visual outcome in infants undergoing surgery for bilateral congenital cataract has improved considerably because of improved surgical methods and the realisation that early detection, allowing early cataract extraction and immediate optical correction, can prevent otherwise irreversible deprivation amblyopia. The management of unilateral congenital cataract is still of the most difficult problems in paediatric ophtalmology. READ MORE
