The organization of an ophthalmological service for diabetics in a teaching hospital

, : The organization of an ophthalmological service for diabetics in a teaching hospital. South African Medical Journal 72(12): 861-862

A new system of opthalmological evaluation of diabetic patients in a teaching hospital has been devised. All the patients attending the diabetic clinic were screened by ophthalmologists. Any patient with a problem was then referred to a diabetic ophthalmology clinic where necessary. In an 18-month period 1 015 new ophthalmological diabetic patients were screened. Of these patients 13,6% had background retinopathy, 8,4% pre-proliferative retinopathy and 3,4% proliferative retinopathy, while 8,6% had maculopathy. These results show that even in a teaching hospital a significant percentage of patients already have pre-proliferative or even proliferative retinopathy when seen by an ophthalmologists for the first time. The importance of organizing an opthalmological service for the diabetic patient is stressed.

To collect information on synthesis and regulation of the peptidoglycan-associated pore-forming outer membrane proteins b and c, mutants resistant to phages Me1 and TuIa were analyzed. Genetic analysis showed three linkage groups, corresponding wi...
