A Retrospective Review DEXTENZA Intracanalicular Dexamethasone (0.4 mg) Insert Prior to or Following Corneal Transplant or Cataract Surgery
Drug: Dextenza 0.4Mg Ophthalmic Insert
DEXTENZA is a corticosteroid intracanalicular insert placed in the punctum, a natural opening in the eye lid, and into the canaliculus and is designed to deliver dexamethasone to the ocular surface for up to 30 days without preservatives.
Other Name: Dexamethasone 0.4mg




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean change in pain score [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    As measured with the visual analog scale (VAS); between 0 and 100; 0 meaning no pain and 100 meaning worse pain possible

  2. Mean change in inflammation (Cell and Flare) scores [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    As measured by SUN (Standardization on Uveitis Nomenclature) grading scale: absence of cell to be defined as a grade of 0-0.5 and absence of flare to be defined as a grade of: 0-1


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Resolution of pain [ Time Frame: Assessed for 1 months after drug insertion ]
    Resolution of pain as assessed by aquestionnaire in post-op visits

  2. Resolution of anterior chamber inflammation [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    Resolution of anterior chamber inflammation as measured by SUN grading at the slitlamp in post-op visits

  3. Proportion of eyes requiring additional post-operative therapy [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    Proportion of eyes requiring additional post-operative therapy for pain and inflammation

  4. Number of patient call-backs regarding post-operative pain [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    Number of patient call-backs regarding post-operative pain and medication management

  5. Number of pharmacy call-backs regarding post-operative medication [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    Number of pharmacy call-backs regarding post-operative medication management

  6. Adverse events [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    Incidence and severity of adverse events

  7. Mean change in IOP [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    Mean change in IOP over post-op visits

  8. Change in BCVA [ Time Frame: Assessed for 3 months after drug insertion ]
    Change in BCVA over post op visits
