Featured Issue: Revista Colombia Médica Vol.44 No.4

Revista Colombia Médica was recently updated on Bioline.

Vol.44 no.4 includes "Ocular trauma from land mines among soldiers treated at a University Hospital in Medellín, Colombia" by Moreno et al. This study examines patients with ocular trauma from injuries sustained in military combat and the treatment and visual outcomes during the healing process. 

Soldiers who suffered land mine trauma and were studied at the Pablo Tobon Uribe Hospital. The injuries of the soldiers were sustained during the time period of January 2004 to December 2012. The medical history of 635 soldiers was examined, and 153 of the soldiers had ocular trauma. 226 eyes in total were examined. 97.3% of the eyes had medical treatment and 49.1% of them also had surgery. Open ocular trauma was observed in 29.6% of the total number of eyes examined. 11 of the 635 were declared legally blind at the time of discharge. 

The article concludes that landmines can cause extreme ocular trauma, and that more effective treatments are the primary closure of the globe and systemic antibiotics. The Ocular Trauma Score, which was calculated in 183 of the 635 eyes, could be a useful tool to determine the visual outcome of ocular trauma sustained from land mines.
