Imaging of the orbit: A concise review p. 1
Alsawi Yusuf Abdulmannan Yusuf, Kamal Hashim Binnawi, Howaida Alnour Makki
Imaging plays an important role in diagnosing most orbital conditions. Imaging modalities commonly employed in orbital imaging are ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Conventional radiography plays a small role in imaging the orbits, particularly in rural areas in low-income countries such as Sudan. In this review, we will classify orbital conditions according to the systemic surgical sieve. Ophthalmologists need to understand the role and nature of each imaging modality to use the most appropriate investigation for a particular patient or condition. When requesting an imaging study, the radiologist needs to get full clinical information, including the surgical history, previous investigations, and a well-formulated question regarding what the clinician expects and wants.

Management of pterygium using autologous blood for conjunctival graft fixation p. 5
Anushree Gupta, Anil Kumar Verma
Aims and Objectives: This study aimed to study the efficacy and surgical outcome of using autologous blood for conjunctival autografting in pterygium excision. Materials and Methods: A prospective, interventional hospital-based study was carried out over 17 eyes of 17 patients having primary or recurrent pterygium. Pterygium excision followed by conjunctiva autografting was performed in all the patients. Conjunctiva graft was fixed to the host bed using autologous blood which was followed by bandaging for 24 h. The patients were followed up postoperatively on day 1, week 1, week 2, month 1, month 3, and for recurrence up to 6 months. They were examined for any complications or recurrence. Results: There were a total of 17 patients, of which 13 were females and 4 were males. The mean age of all the patients was 54.76 ± 8.55 years, range: 41–70 years. Graft-related complication was mild decentration in 1 eye, graft edema in 9 eyes, and lost graft seen in 2 eyes. Recurrence occurred in one eye. No other complication was noted. Good postoperative cosmesis was achieved. Conclusion: Fixation of conjunctival autograft using autologous blood in pterygium surgery is a safe and economical method. The main disadvantage of this procedure is the loss of graft that can occur in the immediate postoperative period.
