examination is recommended when benign intracranial hypertension is suspected.
Ideally, the pupil would also be dilated to facilitate a complete funduscopic
examination of patients is recommended at the initiation and periodically during the course of GH treatment.
Her anterior segment and funduscopic
exams were completely normal except for a mild blurring of the superior margin of the left optic nerve without any other signs of active swelling.
changes were observed in 2% of LYRICA-treated and 2% of placobo-treated patients.
Furthermore, a follow-up funduscopic
examination revealed resolution of the subretinal fluid and optic disc edema (Figure 1c), and OCT confirmed the resolution of serous retinal detachment in both eyes (Figure 1d).
alterations were found in either eye by direct and indirect ophthalmoscopic examination.
examination for CMV infection was negative.
13) The results of this study suggest that clinicians should measure serum creatinine levels and estimate GFR in addition to monitoring urine albumin excretion and funduscopic
changes to screen for kidney disease in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Include examination of the head and neck; cranial nerve examination including: test of olfaction, funduscopic
evaluation, measurement of pupil size and reaction to light, and observation of eye movements.
Establish and prioritize measures: A provider aimed at improving disease management programs to measurably enhance care processes and outcomes might focus on a specific clinical goal such as prevention of diabetic retinopathy supported by clinical actions such as increased ophthalmology follow-up and annual funduscopic
exams and percentage increase in yearly ophthalmology exams as a measure or success indicator.
Children need regulary monitoring of such indicators as blood pressure, height and weight, body mass index, plasma glucose levels, funduscopic
examinations and peripheral nerve sensation evaluation.
