In ACS, low-dose colchicine plus standard medical therapy for 12 months resulted in a lower, but statistically insignificant, rate of the composite primary outcome vs. placebo and standard therapy, a speaker reported. However, when this randomized controlled COPS trial was extended to a 400-day follow-up, with participants halting colchicine at 365 days, investigators observed a significant reduction in the primary endpoint, driven by reduced incidence of urgent revascularization and unstable angina. According to findings presented at the virtual European Society of Cardiology Congress, the.

Welcome to another edition of CEDARS/ASPENS Debates. CEDARS/ASPENS is a joint society of cornea, cataract and refractive surgery specialists, here to discuss some of the latest hot topics in ophthalmology. Before the advent of corneal cross-linking and scleral lenses, many patients with keratoconus who developed significant steepening and poor vision required a corneal transplant, which has its own risks, and leads to a lifetime of maintenance and potentially multiple future procedures. Fortunately, many of these patients can now achieve excellent vision and long-term stability without this.

Click here to read the Cover Story, "Strategies for sustained anti-VEGF delivery aimed at consistent dosing, durability." There are long-term concerns about gene therapy for a number of reasons. First, across the disease stages, there are various levels of anti-VEGF needed. Although age-related macular degeneration appears to be a chronic condition, a small percentage but significant number of patients do not need chronic therapy and can be managed with a low number of injections. In the CATT trial, 14% of patients on average received one or two injections over a 2-year period, and other.

“There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.” Man, what a weird summer, eh? You were at work, sure, but work was not even a little bit normal. If you are in private practice like I am, you quickly got buried in the work you would have done during the pandemic lockdown. Of course, you also had to plow through all of the extra work the lockdown caused because so many of your patients, especially those with dry eye disease, got so much worse because they had to miss appointments. Those of you in academic practices reportedly had the additional challenges posed by countless.

Cataract surgery in eyes with small pupils is a challenge, and having a history of uveitis makes it even more so due to the iris synechiae that tend to form. Having a glaucoma seton device in the eye makes it even more difficult because the fluidic balance of phaco surgery is altered due to the additional outflow pathway (Figure 1). These challenging uveitic cataract cases can be successfully completed using a stepwise approach. Patients with uveitis often have recurrent bouts of inflammation that come and go over the course of many years. Because cataract surgery is largely elective, we can.
