Participants randomly assigned to treatment with yellow mercuric oxide or placebo Magnuson Not population of interest: Most of the references identified from our search reported on external hordeola or chronic internal hordeola. Assessment of reporting biases We will use funnel plots to assess the possibility of reporting biases if more than ten studies are available.

We will report loss to follow-up when available. Hordeplum also can be acute appearing suddenly and healing in a short time or chronic long lasting and occurring over time.

Interventions for acute internal hordeolum

Economic data We planned to report economic data. The role of the meibomian glands in recurrent conjunctivitis. Periorbital and orbital infections. Hrdeolum on the proportion of participants requiring surgical incision and drainage after treatment, the proportion of participants developing a chalazion after treatment, the proportion of participants with recurrent hordeola, and the number of secondary hordeola will also be analyzed as dichotomous data.

Before beginning the review process, we expected that few trials had been published on hordeolum, that various authors used different terminologies when referring to different classifications of hordeola i. Participants alternately assigned to injection with triamcinolone acetonide or incision and curettage Willcox Not population of interest: Agreements and disagreements with other studies or reviews Although it is the most recommended therapy for hordeola, the application of warm compresses has not been shown to be effective in accelerating healing time or reducing symptoms associated with hordeolum in a controlled trial.


Internal hordeolum tends to be more painful and longer lasting than external hordeolum Barza ; Fuchs ; Olson ; Wilkie Adverse outcomes We planned to report all adverse effects related to the treatment of hordeolum that were reported in the primary studies.

Effects of interventions No studies were included in this review, thus no effects of interventions were reported. Nonsurgical interventions were the primary focus of this review.

To minimize bias during the process of selecting studies for this review, two review authors screened the references from the electronic search and independently classified them for inclusion or exclusion. It is also unclear whether medical treatment or lid hygiene is effective in treating acute internal hordeolum. Abstract Background Hordeolum is a common, painful inflammation of the eyelid margin that is usually caused by bacterial infection.

After the titles and abstracts were screened, six references were classified as being potentially relevant. Heated ojurnal are typically employed for five to 10 minutes several times a day until the hordeolum is resolved. Participants randomly assigned to warm compresses and lid scrubs, intralesional steroid injections, or both treatments.

Interventions for acute internal hordeolum

After the titles and abstracts were screened, 19 references were classified as being potentially relevant. Infectious Disease Clinics of North America.

The selection criteria for this review included randomized or quasi-randomized clinical trials of participants diagnosed with acute internal hordeolum. Controlled clinical trials would be useful in determining which interventions are effective for the treatment of acute internal hordeolum.

In addition we used the Science Citation Index to search for references that cited potentially eligible studies last searched on 11 Oct with no relevant studies identified.

Hordoelum trials were identified for inclusion in this review. Clinical observation on 67 cases of hordeolum treated by acupuncture and blood letting on ear. Creating a clear channel is believed to initiate drainage, similar to the epilation of an eyelash in cases of external hordeolum Hudson Treatment of styes and meibomian cysts. RCT of participants with internal and external hordeolum randomly assigned to journql of the ear or no treatment Comstock Not population of interest: All participants received gentamicin sulfate and hot and cold compresses Manabe Not hkrdeolum of interest: Discrepancies between review authors will be resolved by the third review author.


Designing electronic search strategies: Japanese Journal of Antibiotics. Not population of interest: Patients alternately assigned to antibiotic ointment or control applied to the anterior nares.

The measures of treatment effect will depend on the types of data presented in the included studies and will be identified by the definitions given in Chapter 9 of the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions Deeks Although the course hordeolym the disease is relatively short, instances of internal hordeolum are painful and bothersome.

Hprdeolum thank Iris Gordon and Lori Rosman for devising and implementing the electronic search strategy for the review. Data were not reported separately for hordeolum cases Mathew Not population of interest: Hordeolum is a common, painful inflammation of the eyelid margin hordeolkm is usually caused by bacterial infection.

Nonsurgical treatments for hordeolum include the application of warm or hot compresses, the use of lid scrubs and digital massage, the administration of antibiotics or steroids, or alternative medicine such as acupuncture and autohemotherapy. Continuous data We will report continuous data as a weighted mean difference with its standard deviation.
