Posterpreis der Winter ESCRS 2020 an Emilio Torres-Netto - Das ELZA Institut

Im September 2019 gewann Emilio Torres-Netto beim ESCRS-Jahrestreffen den Preis für das beste Poster (refractive section) für sein Poster „Stromal bed smoothness after excimer laser surface ablation as a key element for the expression of inflammatory genes“ (lesen Sie mehr darüber hier). Wir freuen uns, Ihnen mitteilen zu können, dass Dr. Torres-Netto beim ESCRS-Wintertreffen 2020 in Marrakesch, Marokko, erneut den Posterpreis gewonnen hat. Glückwunsch Dr. Torres-Netto!

Die Studie präsentierte eine Kombination der Resultate von mehreren Jahren Grundlagen-Forschung und den Daten einer klinischen Studie, die wir am ELZA Institut durchgeführt haben. Die Studie zeigt, wie man den Excimer-Laser so benutzen kann, dass nach der Operation weniger Entzündung entsteht. Dies könnte es in Zukunft zulassen, mehr Dioptrien zu lasern. Dies könnte für die Zukunft bedeuten, dass wir die Excimer-Laser-Chirurgie auch bei Patienten mit extrem hohen Fehlsichtigkeiten, zum Beispiel 10 Dioptrien Kurzsichtigkeit, sowie bei Patienten mit Narben einsetzen könnten.

Today, refractive surgeons use a drug called mitomycin C (MMC) to avoid developing haze, but this is a cytotoxic drug that intercalates with DNA and stops cells from proliferating, and the long-term consequences of using MMC are currently unknown.

Our researchers wanted to know whether using different laser ablation algorithms and optimised laser ablation profiles could alter the gene expression profiles of the ablated cornea, and they had a particular focus on genes that are involved with the inflammatory response.

What they found was that reductions in the inflammatory responses could be achieved by optimizing the laser ablation algorithms and energy settings, and that postoperative corneal smoothness appeared to be the key factor in regulating this immune response. To do so, they performed photorefractive keratectomy on rabbit corneas, using standard, high-fluence without optimization of corneal smoothness (OCS), low-fluence with OCS, and untreated controls, and examined the gene expression profiles 48 hours later using microarray gene expression analysis to identify genes that were expressed differently in treated and untreated corneas, followed by a technique called RT-PCR to validate those changes.

What Dr. Torres-Netto and his colleagues found that several pro-inflammatory genes were upregulated in the laser-treated corneas. Of note, they discovered that postoperative corneal smoothness was the key factor in inflammatory regulation – the smoother the cornea, the lower the inflammatory response, concluding that controlling stromal bed smoothness and thus, haze, may allow for deeper ablations, but also for the development of future ablation profiles that might broaden the indications of surface ablation to stromal depths currently only accessible with lamellar surgeries. What does this mean for patients? It is a simple message: surgeons should be able to correct more myopia using PRK that leaves the cornea smoother.

I have been to the ELZA clinic to have surgery for my miopy, as my eyes were rejecting the contacts and I was tired of... wearing glasses. From the first preliminary visit, to the actual surgery and post-surgery care Dr. Hafezi and all his collaborators have been extremely professional, considerate and helpful. All the steps of the (very short!) surgery were thoroughly explained to me in order to be as calm as possible, together with the medication plan and precautions to be aware of so that my eyes could heal in the best way possible. By following their exact instructions, the healing process has been very successful and smooth, and after about one week I was able to see perfectly. I absolutely recommend this team and their expertise!weiterlesen

After some research on local options I decided to go with ELZA since it stood out as the best. The operation and the... post-operation recovery went extremely smooth (something I was worried about with PRK). Now my vision is much better than I had hoped and I have no side effects such as dry eye or night vision problems. Thank you!weiterlesen

Vor einem Jahr war ich einer ganz verzweifelten Situation und total im Stich gelassen. Meine Augen wurden aufgrund... eines ausgeprägten Kerakotonus immer schlechter, ich hatte Angst und war alleine mit meinen Problemen. Zudem vertrug ich die Kontaktlinsen nur noch ganz schlecht und hatte jeden Tag Schmerzen.Professor Hafezi hat mir mit zwei Operationen wieder das auf Grund der Situation mögliche an Lebensqualität zurückgebracht. Es war ein starpaziöses Jahr mit vielen Entbehrungen aber es hat sich gelohnt! Herzlichen Dank fuer die Unterstützung.weiterlesen

Ich wurde von meiner Optikerin auf Prof. Dr. Dr. Hafezi aufmerksam gemacht. Es war mir vorher nicht bewusst, dass meine... Augenkrankheit (Keratokonus) operativ mittels Cross Linking behandelt und so gestoppt werden kann. Die Beratung und Behandlung war sehr kompetent und ich fühlte mich jederzeit wohl. Die Operation verlief gut und das Ergebnis ist einwandfrei.weiterlesen

Ich bin sehr glücklich, dass ich das Elza Institute gefunden habe. Ich wurde von anderen Augenärzten abgewiesen, da... meine Augen zu kompliziert/schwierig zu behandeln waren. Prof. Dr. Dr. Hafezi konnte mir jedoch helfen und ich bin sehr glücklich und zufrieden mit dem Resultat. Vielen Dank!weiterlesen

My left eye had to be operated on because of a cataract. As I had an Artiflex lens implanted a few years ago, it had to... be removed first before a modern lens could be implanted to correct the cataract. Prof. Hafezi treated me in an very competent and friendly manner. I am very happy with the result.weiterlesen

At the moment, 3 months have passed since the moment I made laser vision correction in this clinic. and I can say that... I am happy that I chose this particular clinic and Prof. F. Hafezi. The entire staff of the clinic is very friendly, treats patients with sympathy and patience if they are nervous before surgery (my big gratitude to Aida Alili for all support and patience). The doctor Hafezi and other doctors of the clinic are very professional and ready to explain to you as many times as you need. I can only recommend!weiterlesen

Professor Hafezi and the team at the ELZA Institute have done an amazing job of creating a first class eye clinic, with... cutting edge technology and support. I went there for a dry eye issue and other issues with my prescription, and they were easily able to help me and put me on the road to better vision! High recommend them to anyone in the Zurich/Aargau area.weiterlesen
