100-0: The F-15 Eagle Is A Killer in the Sky And Israel’s Aerial Assassin

The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle has been among the most successful modern fighters in the world. It has racked up more than 100 victories in the sky and suffered not a single loss in aerial combat. The majority of its kills were by the Israeli Air Force (IAF), which has operated the F-15 since 1977 under a foreign military sales program known as Peace Fox.

This Was the U.S. Navy’s Last ‘Conventional’ Aircraft Carrier (And a Killer)

The United States Navy currently operates eleven nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, and every other carrier in the world – apart from the French Navy’s flagship Charles de Gaulle – is a conventionally powered vessel. However, as recently as 2007, the U.S. Navy also operated a non-nuclear carrier, the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67). A variant of the Kitty Hawk-class, she was the last conventionally powered carrier built for the Navy.

How to Choose a MIGS Procedure

In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Davinder Grover shares his approach for choosing the appropriate minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) procedures. If a patient has mild disease, he considers a stenting procedure. For mild to moderate glaucoma, he prefers a stripping type procedure, like goniotomy. Once the patient has moderate to advanced disease with vision loss, he opens up the angle 360 degrees and performs an ab interno circumferential trabeculectomy or gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy.

Dropless glaucoma treatment an elusive path to ease burden

Physicians are left to determine which treatments can offer patients best outcomes. Treatment of glaucoma without eyedrops has long been a goal, and while it may be possible one day, it is not reality. However, there are a number of considerations for individual patients. Numerous surgical procedures and minimally invasive...

MIGS and cataract surgery option offers positive results

Retrospective review highlights the sustained efficacy of combination procedure. Results from 5 years of follow-up show that minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) with simultaneous implantation of 2 trabecular microbypass stents (iStent Inject, Glaukos) combined with phacoemulsification is safe and provides durable moderate lowering of IOP. It also reduced the burden...

Don’t Feed the Hand that Bites You

Second-guessing another doctor’s clinical care should not be taken lightly, but if you do, be judicious in your approach. Here are several takeaways from when I found myself in this position. Case. I was examining a 55-year-old Caucasian female a couple of weeks ago. During the evaluation, she mentioned her...

IOP Control: Time to Play Offense?

We are all too familiar with the constraints of the classic glaucoma treatment progression of drops-laser-surgery. Whether it is the cost of medications, compliance with administration of drugs or the need to tailor treatment to the stage of glaucoma, we routinely take a customized approach to this condition already. But there is an emerging, potentially disruptive treatment philosophy to consider: interventional glaucoma. It expands our arsenal of treatment options to further reduce the burden on our patients, allowing us to take earlier, more aggressive steps to treat glaucoma before it becomes uncontrollable.

Conventional glaucoma implants and the new MIGS devices: a comprehensive review of current options and future directions

Glaucoma is a progressive optic neuropathy that is the second leading cause of preventable blindness worldwide, after cataract formation. A rise in the intraocular pressure (IOP) is considered to be a major risk factor for glaucoma and is associated with an abnormal increase of resistance to aqueous humour outflow from the anterior chamber. Glaucoma drainage devices have been developed to provide an alternative pathway through which aqueous humour can effectively exit the anterior chamber, thereby reducing IOP. These devices include the traditional aqueous shunts with tube-plate design, as well as more recent implants, such as the trabeculectomy-modifying EX-PRESS® implant and the new minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) devices. In this review, we will describe each implant in detail, focusing on their efficacy in reducing IOP and safety profile. Additionally, a critical and evidence-based comparison between these implants will be provided. Finally, we will propose potential developments that may help to improve the performance of current devices.

VETERANS STORY: The last Mig fighter - Part Two

This is the second installment in a two-part series on the military career of Cesar “Rico” Rodrequez. Fighter pilot Cesar “Rico” Rodreguez recorded his first Mig “kill” during the Gulf War on Jan. 19, 1991. Seven days later on Jan. 26, with blinding sand storms swirling at up to 50,000 feet and violent thunderstorms creating near-zero visibility at up to 40,000 feet altitude, Rodreguez recorded his second kill.

Monday Medical: Gaining ground on glaucoma

Glaucoma, a progressive disease that can eventually lead to blindness, comes on slowly. But most people don’t have symptoms until the damage has been done. “While glaucoma is not the leading cause of blindness, it’s definitely one of the top five causes of blindness in the world and in the United States,” said Dr. Nathan Hamburger, an ophthalmologist in Steamboat Springs and a member of the medical staff at UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center.

Glaukos Achieves Pipeline Milestone With Completion Of Patient Enrollment In U.S. NDA Phase 3 Clinical Trials For IDose® TR

Glaukos Corporation (GKOS) - Get Report, an ophthalmic medical technology and pharmaceutical company focused on novel therapies for the treatment of glaucoma, corneal disorders and retinal diseases, today announced the completion of patient enrollment and randomization in its U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) New Drug Application (NDA) Phase 3 clinical trials for the iDose ® TR sustained-release travoprost implant.

The use of MIGS trends and patterns in the US

Use of such procedures increased markedly in analysis of IRIS Registry Data. The use of minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries (MIGS) has increased markedly over the previous 6 years in the United States, with a concomitant (albeit smaller) decrease in traditional trabeculectomies and glaucoma drainage device (GDD) techniques. Usually in the...
