Evaluation of Ocular Surface Changes Following RF Electrocoagulation Treatment of the Periorbital Region

2017-09-13 00:23:22 | BioPortfolio


This protocol will evaluate THERMIeyes® for its ability to treat periorbital skin laxity and wrinkles and monitor ocular surface changes and their effect on evaporative dry eye associated with MGD.


Subjects with skin laxity and evaporative dry eye will be recruited for enrollment in this study. Subjects must present with subjective and objective indicators for periorbital skin laxity and wrinkle grade of 2 or greater out of a 4 point scale. To qualify, subjects must present with high symptoms score on subjective Ocular Surface Disease Index© (OSDI©) Questionnaires (scores≥ 15); Rapid Tear Break up (< 5 seconds) and Grade ≥ 1 of Flourescein Staining in one area of the cornea. Each of these parameters are to be assessed prior to treatment and at each follow up visit. Treatment is to be performed on periorbital skin only around one eye of the subject using the THERMIeyes® standard protocol. This may result in some redness of the periorbital skin. Subjects are to be seen and treated 2-3 weeks apart for a total of 3 treatments. Subjects will be followed at 6 and 12 weeks after the final treatment. A Validated Grading Scale for Crow's Feet will be used to evaluate changes in skin wrinkles and dry eye signs and symptoms scores will be compared with pre-treatment findings.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chronic multi-system disorder of CONNECTIVE TISSUE. It is characterized by SCLEROSIS in the SKIN, the LUNGS, the HEART, the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, the KIDNEYS, and the MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM. Other important features include diseased small BLOOD VESSELS and AUTOANTIBODIES. The disorder is named for its most prominent feature (hard skin), and classified into subsets by the extent of skin thickening: LIMITED SCLERODERMA and DIFFUSE SCLERODERMA.

The outer covering of the body composed of the SKIN and the skin appendages, which are the HAIR, the NAILS; and the SEBACEOUS GLANDS and the SWEAT GLANDS and their ducts.

Cells that line the inner and outer surfaces of the body by forming cellular layers (EPITHELIUM) or masses. Epithelial cells lining the SKIN; the MOUTH; the NOSE; and the ANAL CANAL derive from ectoderm; those lining the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM and the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM derive from endoderm; others (CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM and LYMPHATIC SYSTEM) from mesoderm.

A genodermatosis occurring mostly in females and characterized by skin changes in three phases - vesiculobullous, verrucous papillomatous, and macular melanodermic. Hyperpigmentation is bizarre and irregular. Sixty percent of patients have abnormalities of eyes, teeth, central nervous system, and skin appendages.

Measurements of joint flexibility (RANGE OF MOTION, ARTICULAR), usually by employing an angle-measuring device (arthrometer). Arthrometry is used to measure ligamentous laxity and stability. It is often used to evaluate the outcome of ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT replacement surgery.
