Summary of "Intravitreal Dexamethasone implants for non-infectious uveitis."

Inflammatory-mediated cystoid macular oedema (CMO) is the most common inflammatory mediated threat to vision in Non-Infectious Uveitis (NIU). Corticosteroid therapy is the cornerstone to the management of CMO in NIU. Sustained-release Dexamethasone (DEX) implant devices provide localised therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Human histocompatibility (HLA) surface antigen encoded by the B locus on chromosome 6. It is strongly associated with acute anterior uveitis (UVEITIS, ANTERIOR); ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; and REACTIVE ARTHRITIS.

Inflammation of the choroid as well as the retina and vitreous body. Some form of visual disturbance is usually present. The most important characteristics of posterior uveitis are vitreous opacities, choroiditis, and chorioretinitis.

The administration of substances into the VITREOUS BODY of the eye with a hypodermic syringe.

Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.

Implants constructed of materials designed to be absorbed by the body without producing an immune response. They are usually composed of plastics and are frequently used in orthopedics and orthodontics.
