Occupational Cataracts and Lens Opacities in Interventional Cardiology : the O'CLOC Study

2014-08-27 03:16:13 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to test the existence of an increased risk of cataracts among interventional cardiologists as compared to cardiologists not exposed to X-rays.

Description

This cross-sectional study includes cardiologists aged > 40 years: a group of interventional cardiologists (coronary interventionists and electrophysiologists) and a group of unexposed cardiologists. Individual information, including risk factors of cataracts (age, diabetes, myopia, etc. ...), are collected during a telephone interview. For the exposed group, a specific section of the questionnaire is focused on the occupational history, the description of the procedures (type, frequency, radiation protection tool) and will be used for the classification into "comparable exposure level" groups according to estimates of cumulative dose. For all participants, eye examinations are performed to specifically detect cataracts even in the early stages (lens opacities, LOCS III according to the international standard classification).

Radiation-induced Cataracts in Children With Brain Tumors Receiving Craniospinal Irradiation.

Radiation is a well-known cause of the development of cataracts. For children with brain tumors, craniospinal irradiation (CSI) would be expected to result in a significant risk of cataract developmen...

Elevated inflammatory cytokines in aqueous cytokine profile in HIV-1 infected patients with cataracts in Uganda.

Cataracts occur earlier among HIV-infected adults and this is attributed to various intraocular inflammatory processes that result in early degeneration. In this study we purposed to investigate wheth...

Drug delivery to the lens for the management of cataracts.

Cataracts are one of the most prevalent diseases of the lens, affecting its transparency and are the leading cause of reversible blindness in the world. The clarity of the lens is essential for its no...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Antilipemic agent with high ophthalmic toxicity. According to Merck Index, 11th ed, the compound was withdrawn from the market in 1962 because of its association with the formation of irreversible cataracts.

An oculomandibulofacial syndrome principally characterized by dyscephaly (usually brachycephaly), parrot nose, mandibular hypoplasia, proportionate nanism, hypotrichosis, bilateral congenital cataracts, and microphthalmia. (Dorland, 27th ed)

An autosomal recessive disorder that causes premature aging in adults, characterized by sclerodermal skin changes, cataracts, subcutaneous calcification, muscular atrophy, a tendency to diabetes mellitus, aged appearance of the face, baldness, and a high incidence of neoplastic disease.

An autosomal recessive syndrome occurring principally in females, characterized by the presence of reticulated, atrophic, hyperpigmented, telangiectatic cutaneous plaques, often accompanied by juvenile cataracts, saddle nose, congenital bone defects, disturbances in the growth of HAIR; NAILS; and TEETH; and HYPOGONADISM.

An abnormal congenital condition, associated with defects in the LAMIN TYPE A gene, which is characterized by premature aging in children, where all the changes of cell senescence occur. It is manifested by premature greying; hair loss; hearing loss (DEAFNESS); cataracts (CATARACT); ARTHRITIS; OSTEOPOROSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; atrophy of subcutaneous fat; skeletal hypoplasia; elevated urinary HYALURONIC ACID; and accelerated ATHEROSCLEROSIS. Many affected individuals develop malignant tumors, especially SARCOMA.
