An AD treatment phobia that is a “phenomenon”Atopic dermatitis patients have a phobia of topical corticosteroids that is so strong, it’s been described as a “phenomenon.”
Ubiquitous steroid use posing unwitting cause for glaucomaAll corticosteroids matter when it comes to the risk of an intraocular pressure (IOP) response, and that is an important point for ophthalmologists to remember because opportunities for corticosteroid exposure are growing.
ECP provides primary secondary therapy option for glaucomaFor 20 years I have effectively employed endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) as a primary or secondary line of glaucoma treatment. ECP is a minimally invasive glaucoma surgical (MIGS) option capable of reducing IOP in the majority of patients and can potentially eliminate the need for drainage surgery, including trabeculectomy (trab) and glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs).
Pearls for better diagnosis, treatment of red eyeOphthalmologists should consider various potential problems, including a number of systemic conditions and infections, when examining a rare or persistent red eye.
Did FDA safety communication reduce myomectomies?A study looks at whether myomectomies were also impacted by the FDA safety communication. Also, chronically ill mothers may be more likely to give birth to children with heart disease. Plus: Can antenatal steroids reduce mortality in extreme prematurity?
Do LABAs given with glucocorticoids increase severe asthma events?Results of a randomized trial in children with asthma comparing concomitant use of the inhaled glucocorticoid fluticasone propionate plus the long-acting beta-agonist (LABA) salmeterol with use of fluticasone alone indicate that the answer to this question is “no.”
Surgeons face choices in pediatric orbital cellulitisWhen treating cases of pediatric orbital cellulitis, it is essential that clinicians consider the risks and advantages of antibiotics, steroids, and surgery.
Combination of NSAIDs and steroids reduces CME outcomesA hot topic in cataract surgery is alternative ways to administer perioperative medications with the goal of lowering the incidence of cystoid macular edema (CME). One way to achieve that goal would be the combination of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and transzonular steroids.
Advances in wound healing tools and techniquesNew wound-healing tools arising from evolving knowledge of the wound-healing process include drugs, debridement techniques, advanced skin grafting tools and stem cell delivery strategies.
Spironolactone affects steroid skin damage
Spironolactone affects steroid skin damageIt might seem unlikely, but researchers have found the antihypertensive drug spironolactone reduces skin atrophy from topical corticosteroid use.
