Dean Gilmore’s Research Finds Cataract Surgery Slows Dementia for Alzheimer’s Patients

Sep 25 2014

Dean Gilmore lo resCataract surgery on Alzheimer’s disease patients slows dementia and improves their quality of life, according to clinical trials conducted by researchers at Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals Case Medical Center and MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.

Grover “Cleve” Gilmore, PhD, Dean of the Mandel School, led the five-year study funded by the National Institute on Aging that examined the benefits of cataract surgery for people with Alzheimer’s disease. Gilmore said he hopes the study’s outcomes change the health disparity for Alzheimer’s patients denied cataract surgery due to a lack of evidence of any benefit.

“We’ve shown that it does benefit them,” he said.

The researchers report that, after assessing risks and safety issues for Alzheimer’s patients, co-occurring health problems—like cataracts—should be addressed.

“This study supports the Alzheimer’s Association view that people with dementia retain, and benefit from, full health care treatment,” said Maria Carrillo, PhD, the association’s vice president of medical and science relations.

Common perceptions that Alzheimer’s patients need no extra care or shouldn’t be put through surgery “are not justified and are bad medical practice,” Carrillo said.

Gilmore’s psychological research in visual perception deficits has shown that blurred vision and problems with contrast, which can occur with aging and dementia, place many at risk for accidents, such as bumping into things and falling down stairs. And as their visual world disappears, he said, many become withdrawn.

The study’s co-investigators are: Alan Lerner and Jon Lass, from Case Western Reserve’s Department of Ophthalmology at the medical school and University Hospitals Case Medical Center (UH); Julie Belkin and Susie Sami, from UH; Tatiana Riedel from Case Western Reserve’s Department of Psychological Sciences and Sara Debanne from the Department of Epidemiology; and Thomas Steinemann, from Case Western Reserve and MetroHealth Medical Center.

The patients weren’t the only ones to benefit from the surgery. Gilmore said caregivers reported being less stressed because the surgery allowed Alzheimer’s patients to become more mobile and independent—getting dressed, eating, moving and even driving.

Lenore A. Kola Retires From Teaching After 39 Years

Aug 21 2014

WEB_KolaAfter 39 years on the faculty of the Mandel School and establishing a highly regarded substance abuse curriculum, Lenore A. Kola, PhD, associate professor of social work and former dean of the School of Graduate Studies at Case Western Reserve, has retired from teaching. Her career will be celebrated at a special event on August 22 hosted by Dean Grover “Cleve” Gilmore, featuring tributes from her faculty and university colleagues.

Dr. Kola will continue to serve as co-director of the Center for Evidence-Based Practices (CEBP), which is a partnership between the Mandel School and the Department of Psychiatry at the School of Medicine that provides technical assistance to service systems to help them implement behavioral health care innovations for people with mental and substance abuse disorders.

When Dr. Kola arrived at the Mandel School is 1975, substance abuse was not on the school’s radar. She changed that, establishing a curriculum specialization in alcohol and other drugs (AODA), focusing on interventions at both the micro and macro levels. She chaired the program for more than 30 years.

She also taught 12 different courses while a faculty member, six of which she developed and implemented. Over the span of 39 years, Dr. Kola received more than $7 million in federal, state and local foundation grants for training thousands of social work students and licensed professionals.

To make a donation in her honor to the Lenore A. Kola Endowment Fund, please contact Marianne Lax at 216.368.1832 or Marianne.Lax@case.edu.
