Abstract

Ocular traumata are relevant sight threatening incidents [1]. Males are more often involved than females as well as rural dwellers more often than urban inhabitants [2]. Most accidents occur at work (60 %) followed by accidents at home (24 %) [2].
Risk factors for a poor visual outcome are rupture of the globe, scleral wound extending further than 5 mm posterior to the limbus, scleral wound of equal or more than 10 mm, ciliary body damage, severe intraocular hemorrhages and choroidal damage (i. e. choroidal laceration, choroidal detachment, choroidal rupture, choroidal incarceration, and choroidal defect), closed funnel retinal detachment or extraocular retinal prolapse [3].
A consistent terminology and a precise trauma classification are indispensible to ensure optimal trauma management. Commonly used are the Birmingham-Eye-Trauma-Terminology (BETT, [Fig. 1]) [4][5] and the Ocular-Trauma-Score (OTS) [5][6][7][8].

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
