Ocular ischaemic syndrome following coil embolisation for direct carotid cavernous fistula

 

Gunna NT, Paritala A, Takkar B, Sheth J. 

 

A 36-year-old man presented with proptosis and external ophthalmoplegia of the left globe following road traffic injury. Cerebral angiogram revealed moderate flow direct carotid cavernous fistula on left side for which coil embolisation was done repeatedly. Subsequently, the patient developed decreased vision in left eye and developed features of left-sided ocular ischaemic syndrome. The patient was treated conservatively with spontaneous reversal of ocular ischaemic syndrome and complete regain of visual function.

Forecast of Outpatient Visits to a Tertiary Eyecare Network in India Using the EyeSmart Electronic Medical Record System

 

Gumpili Sai Prashanthi, Nareen Molugu, Priyanka Kammari, Ranganath Vadapalli and Anthony Vipin Das

 

India is home to 1.3 billion people. The geography and the magnitude of the population present unique challenges in the delivery of healthcare services. The implementation of electronic health records and tools for conducting predictive modeling enables opportunities to explore time series data like patient inflow to the hospital. This study aims to analyze expected outpatient visits to the tertiary eyecare network in India using datasets from a domestically developed electronic medical record system (eyeSmart™) implemented across a large multitier ophthalmology network in India.
