Ectopia lentis edit

  1. 1. ECTOPIA LENTIS Presenter: Dr. Rujuta Gore Moderator: Dr. Suhas Haldipurkar Dr. Prakash Chipade
  2. 2. Introduction  Ectopia lentis is defined as displacement or malposition of the crystalline lens of the eye  Berryat described the first reported case of lens dislocation in 1749, and Stellwag subsequently coined the term “ectopia lentis” in 1856
  3. 3. Topographic Classification Subluxated lens Dislocated lens • Incarcerated in the pupil • In the anterior chamber • In the vitreous- lens nutans • Lens fixata • In the subretinal space • Wandering lens • Extrusion out of the globe • In subconjunctival space
  4. 4. Etiologic Classification Etiology Congenital Metabolic Disorder Traumatic Consecutive or Spontaneous
  5. 5. Congenital Ectopia Lentis  Usually bilateral and symmetrical Simple Ectopia Lentis Ectopia Lentis et Pupillae
  6. 6. Congenital Ectopia Lentis  SIMPLE ECTOPIA LENTIS  Autosomal dominant inheritance  Ocular anomaly: Bilateral, symmetric, upward and temporal displacement of the lens.  Herniation of the vitreous associated with zonular degeneration may occur through the zonular defect into the anterior chamber  Associated with cataract and retinal detachment
  7. 7. Congenital Ectopia Lentis  ECTOPA LENTIS ET PUPILLAE  Autosomal recessive inheritance  Pupils are oval or slit shaped and ectopic, and they frequently dilate poorly  Bilateral, with the lenses and pupils displaced in the opposite direction from each other.  Associated ocular anomalies- Megalocornea, polycoria, cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment, optic nerve hypoplasia, colobomata
  8. 8.  Pathogenesis of ectopia lentis et pupillae:  Mesodermal- persistent remnants of tunica vasculosa lentis mechanically interfere with the development of zonules  Neuroectodermal- Maldevelopment of the pigmentary epithelium of the iris, hypoplasia of the dilator muscle
  9. 9. Metabolic Disorders  MARFAN SYNDROME  Prevalence of approximately 5 per 100,000  Autosomal dominant condition characterized by skeletal, cardiovascular, and ocular anomalies.  Several point mutations involving the fibrillin gene on chromosomes 15 and 21 - relate to incompetent zonular fibers
  10. 10. MARFAN SYNDROME  Salient features:  Skeletal Manifestations  Tall stature  Increased arm span in relation to body height and elongated lower segment  Arachnodactyly  Joint laxity, scoliosis
  11. 11. MARFAN SYNDROME  Cardiovascular Manifestations  Mitral valve prolapse, aortic dilatation
  12. 12. MARFAN SYNDROME  Ocular Manifestations  Axial myopia  Corneal diameter may be increased, giving the appearance of megalocornea  Increased incidence of retinal degeneration & detachment  Lens subluxation occurs in about 75% of patients; usually is bilateral, symmetrical, and superotemporal
  13. 13. HOMOCYSTINURIA  Inborn error of metabolism of sulfur containing amino acids  Near absence of cystathionine b-synthetase (the enzyme that converts homocysteine to cystathionine)  Salient features:  Fair skin with coarse hair  Osteoporosis  Mental retardation (nearly 50%)  Seizure disorder  Marfanoid habitus
  14. 14. HOMOCYSTINURIA  Salient features continued:  Poor circulation - Thromboembolic events constitute the major threat to survival, especially following general anesthesia  Lens luxation usually is bilateral, symmetrical, and inferonasal, and presents in nearly 90% of patients
  15. 15. WEIL-MARCHESANI SYNDROME  Salient features:  Short stature  Brachycephaly  Limited joint mobility  Ectopia lentis  Microspherophakia (most prominent feature of this syndrome)  Lenticular myopia  Lens subluxation occurs inferiorly, often progressing to complete dislocation  Pupillary block glaucoma is common
  16. 16. SULFITE OXIDASE DEFICIENCY  Defect in sulfur metabolism  Salient features:  Progressive CNS abnormalities that develop within the first year of life  Ectopia lentis.
  17. 17. HYPERLYSINEMIA  Autosomal recessive enzymatic defect of amino acid metabolism  Characterized by mental retardation and lens dislocation.
  18. 18. Rare Systemic Associations  Ehlers-Danlos syndrome  Crouzon disease  Refsum syndrome  Kniest syndrome  Mandibulofacial dysostosis  Sturge-Weber syndrome
  19. 19. Traumatic Ectopia Lentis  Mechanism-  Backward thrust and rebounding of the lens  Pressure wave of the aqueous forcing the root of iris backwards  Forcible recoil of the vitreous body which comes forward around the lens
  20. 20. Consecutive/Spontaneous Ectopia Lentis  Mechanical stretching  Buphthalmos  High myopia  Staphyloma  Intraocular Tumors  Inflammatory  Destruction of zonules  Hypermature cataract  Cyclitic adhesions  Vitreous traction bands
  21. 21. Presentation  Common presenting symptoms include the following:  Decreased distance visual acuity (secondary to astigmatism or lenticular myopia)  Poor near vision (loss of accommodative power)  Monocular diplopia  Red painful eye
  22. 22. Presentation  History:  Onset  Cardiovascular disease (Marfan syndrome)  Skeletal problems (Marfan syndrome, Weil-Marchesani syndrome, or homocystinuria)  Ocular trauma  Family history  Consanguinity  Mental retardation  Unexplained deaths at young age (eg, autosomal recessive conditions, including homocystinuria, hyperlysinemia, ectopia lentis et pupillae, or sulfite oxidase deficiency)
  23. 23. Ocular Examination  Visual Acuity  Ectopia lentis is potentially visually debilitating.  Visual acuity varies with the degree of malpositioning of the lens.  Amblyopia is a common cause of decreased vision in congenital ectopia lentis.
  24. 24. Ocular Examination  Retinoscopy and refraction  Edge of the dislocated lens may be identified in the pupillary space.  Careful retinoscopy and refraction is essential, often revealing myopia with astigmatism.  Keratometry may help ascertain degree of corneal astigmatism.
  25. 25. Ocular Examination  Signs  Megalocornea  Anterior chamber-  Irregular  Flat  Cells and flare- uveitis  Vitreous- present/ absent  Angle of AC  Recession seen in trauma  Presence or absence of synechiae
  26. 26. Ocular Examination  Iris- iridodonesis, transillumination  Appearance of the pupil  assess the adequacy of the pupillary space for a possible aphakic correction  Lens-  Position  Phacodonesis  Cataract  Zonules- stretched or broken

  37. 37. Management of Subluxated lens in Children  Treatment of aphakia in children is a challenge  Spectacle correction is not suitable for unilateral aphakia due to anisokenia  Contact lens - keratitis, corneal neovascularization, noncompliance, frequent lens change and cost  Surgical methods - implantation of ACIOL/SFIOL  ACIOL not preferred in the pediatric age group (corneal decompensation, glaucoma and retinal detachments)  Recently published studies reported late dislocation of IOL due to breakage of polypropylene sutures SFIOL, especially in young patients Vote BJ, Tranos P, Bunce C, Charteris DG, Da Cruz L.

  • The lens is considered dislocated when it lies completely outside the lens patellar fossa, in the anterior chamber, free-floating in the vitreous, or directly on the retina. The lens is described as subluxated when it is partially displaced but contained within the lens space
  • Subluxation was 3-7 clock hours. 90deg to 210deg
  • Capsular tension ring (CTR) implantation may be the solution for zonular weakness but does not correct capsular bag decentration
