Characteristics of excluded studies. Risk of bias in included studies No studies were included in this review, thus no risk of bias assessment was done. How hordeplum treat common external eye problems.
For each included study, we will extract data on study characteristics, interventions, outcomes, cost, quality of life, and other relevant information. Acknowledgments We thank Iris Gordon and Lori Rosman for devising and implementing the electronic search strategy for the review.

Lid scrubs are commonly recommended in the treatment of other ocular bacterial infections, such as blepharitis, and may prevent the spread of infection Avisar Staphylococcal infections in general practice. Hordeola tend to occur in younger people but are not limited to any age, gender, or racial group Fuchs ; Lederman ; Roodyn We thank the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group editorial team for assisting hordeo,um preparation of the protocol hlrdeolum review.
Interventions for acute internal hordeolum. Cases of recurrent hordeolum are usually the result of failure to eliminate bacteria completely rather than resulting from new infections Roodyn Nonsurgical interventions were the primary focus of this review. All participants received gentamicin sulfate and hot and cold compresses Manabe Not population of interest: The second study compared the effectiveness of a combined antibiotic ophthalmic solution with placebo in participants with internal and external hordeolum after surgical incision and curettage Hirunwiwatkul Discrepancies between review authors will be resolved by a third review author.
The infection affects the oil glands in the eyelid and results in a lump. How the intervention might work The natural history of acute internal hordeolum generally spans one to two weeks, beginning with the appearance of an abscess and concluding with draining of the abscess.
Assessing risk of bias in included studies. Participants randomly assigned to injection with triamcinolone or incision and curettage Kastl Not population of interest: Shanghai Journal of Acupuncture and Moxibustion.
Patients alternately assigned to antibiotic ointment or control applied to the anterior nares Gao Not intervention of interest: Treatment of recurrent styes. Hordeolum also can be acute appearing suddenly and healing in a short time or chronic long lasting and occurring over time.
Two review authors independently assessed the references identified by electronic searches for inclusion in this review. If heterogeneity is detected, we will combine trial results by relevant, less heterogeneous subgroups if sufficient data are available.
This review was limited to randomized and quasi-randomized clinical trials. We also manually searched the reference lists of potentially relevant studies to identify older studies that may not be included in electronic databases.
If unresolved, acute internal hordeolum horeolum become chronic or can develop into a chalazion De Jesus ; Hudson ; Mueller ; Rubin Discrepancies between review authors will be resolved by the third review author.
Interventions for acute internal hordeolum
Before beginning the review process, we expected that few trials had been johrnal on hordeolum, that various authors yordeolum different terminologies when referring to different classifications of hordeola i.
We designated each reference identified from the searches as a relevant, b possibly journsl, or c not relevant for this review. Potential biases in the review process The primary source of bias for this review was anticipated to be selection bias, specifically, the identification and inclusion of relevant studies.
After the titles and abstracts were screened, six references were classified as being potentially relevant. All participants received topical minocycline Hatano Not population of interest: In conjunction with lid scrubs, lid massage has been proposed to physically express secretions from the infected glands Driver ; Scobee For times when medical care is sought, a general practitioner or a family physician may be consulted before an ophthalmologist or an optometrist is seen Fraunfelder ; Lebensohn All participants received penicillin and streptomycin plus a polyvalent antigen Munomycin.
Participants alternately assigned to injection with triamcinolone acetonide or incision and curettage. Participants randomly assigned to warm compresses and lid scrubs, intralesional steroid injections, or both treatments Hatano Not population of interest: RCT of participants with chalazia, defined as chronic inflammation of the meibomian glands.
Four of these participants underwent surgery at the time of first consult, and six received the antibiotic amikacin. Emergency Medicine Clinics of North America. Heated compresses are typically employed for five to 10 minutes several times a day until the hordeolum is resolved. Internal hordeolum has a short course; therefore as little as one steroid treatment could be effective in reducing healing time and relieving symptoms associated with the inflammation King ; Palva
