Corneal Endothelial Changes Associated With Phacoemulsification in Diabetes Mellitus Type II

2014-07-23 21:09:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Some studies indicated that the diabetic corneal endothelium is morphologically abnormal and may be at risk in any intraocular surgical procedure, while others showed no significant differences between diabetic and non-diabetic corneal endothelium.The purpose of this study is to investigate the differences in corneal endothelial cell density and morphology in diabetic patients and normal patients after phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation.To investigate if haemoglobin A1c can be used as a predictor of corneal endothelial cell changes after phacoemulsification.

Specular microscopy photos will be taken pre-. and 3 month postoperatively. Cellular parameters will be compared between the two groups prior and post surgery. Clinical significant difference is defined as 1 SD (300 cell/mm2)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.

Excessive thirst manifested by excessive fluid intake. It is characteristic of many diseases such as DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS; and NEPHROGENIC DIABETES INSIPIDUS. The condition may be psychogenic in origin.
