Surgically lifting and scraping, mitomycin C, fibrin glue, Nd:YAG laser, hydrogel ocular sealant, and amniotic membrane patch are the reported methods for treating epithelial ingrowth after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Here we report the management of a rare case of recalcitrant epithelial ingrowth using a combined scraping/laser ablation that occurred after LASIK.
This article was published in the following journal.
To study outcomes after surgical removal of epithelial ingrowth (EI) in post-laser in situ keratomileusis patients, specifically comparing visual results and recurrence rates between 2 different EI ma...
We describe the case of a 41-year-old male that underwent laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) complicated by Urrets-Zavalia syndrome with interface fluid syndrome and epithelial ingrowth.
To report a case of partial scleral rupture after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery.
As the prevalence of post-laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) patients rises, recognition of possible traumatic complications and their management in this population becomes increasingly rel...
To evaluate 3-dimensional epithelial remodeling in patients undergoing myopic laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) versus small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE).
To evaluate the short-term changes in ocular surface measures and tear inflammatory mediators after lenticule extraction (FLEx), laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and femtosecond laser-...
To evaluate the changes in quality of life parameters after LASIK surgery.
To evaluate the efficacy of autologous platelet-rich plasma eye drops (E-PRP) for the treatment of chronic ocular surface syndrome (OSS) following laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK).
Since the cornea is the main responsible for the refraction of the eye, as its refractive power is greater than 70% of the total refraction of the eye, so modification of its refractive pr...
A recent survey of trends among the members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery determined that laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the leading surgical procedur...
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
A lesion with cytological characteristics associated with invasive adenocarcinoma but the tumor cells are confined to the GLANDULAR EPITHELIAL CELLS of origin. Adenocarcinoma in situ of the CERVIX and the LUNG are the most common.
A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
