Patients with Irreparable Rotator Cuff Tears May Have Surgical Option, New Research Shows

The arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) surgical technique can offer patients with irreparable rotator cuff repairs the opportunity to return to sports and jobs that require heavy physical work, as presented in research today at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Wayne State Receives $1.9 Million NIH Grant to Research and Find Treatments for Genetic Disease That Causes Blindness

Thummelheadshotweb.jpg

A team of Wayne State University researchers recently received a $1.9 million grant from the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health to better understand leukodystrophies (LD) and genetic Leukoencephalopathies (gLE), rare genetic disorders affecting the white matter – myelin – in the central nervous system. Patients diagnosed with a leukodystrophy experience a gradual decline in development, including a progressive loss in gait, body tone, vision, hearing, swallowing and/or ability to eat.

Eye Freckles? Dark Spots on Iris May Be Caused by Sun Exposure

In a study well-timed for summer, vision scientists have found that eye freckles, dark spots on the colored part of the eye (iris), are more frequently found in people with higher lifetime exposure to sunlight. While not malignant, eye freckles could indicate the presence or risk of sunlight-triggered eye diseases like cataract or macular degeneration.

At a glance: ·Newly published research reveals the presence of a blueprint for the complex visual system already present at birth. ·The observations shed light on a long-standing mystery about how and when certain cardinal features of the visual system develop. ·The findings have implications for human brain evolution and could provide explanation for some anomalies in visual activity seen in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.

A Switch to Generic Eye Drugs Could Save Medicare Millions

Eye care providers prescribe more brand medications by volume than any other provider group, according to a University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center study, making ophthalmologist and optometrists big influencers of annual prescription drug spending in the United States.

Wayne State University Receives $1.9 Million NIH Grant to Study Bacterial Endophthalmitis

A Wayne State University researcher recently received a $1.9 million grant from the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health for the project, “Role of AMP-Activated Protein Kinase in Bacterial Endophthalmitis.” Endophthalmitis is a severe inflammation of the interior of the eye caused by contaminating microorganisms that enter the eye following trauma or surgery, or that spread through the bloodstream from a distant infection site. Despite appropriate therapeutic intervention, bacterial endophthalmitis often results in vision loss and sometimes requires surgical removal of the eye.

Ebola Lingers in Survivors’ Eyes

Three years after an Ebola epidemic swept across West Africa, researchers have found a clue to how the virus may live on in the eyes of survivors suffering from uveitis – one of the more serious and common complications of the disease.
