PURPOSE: To determine whether choroidal neovascularization excision causes mechanical damage to the neurosensory retina, retinal pigment epithelium, or choriocapillaris. METHODS: Prospectively, 18 eyes of 18 consecutive patients who underwent choroidal neovascularization excision were observed....
PURPOSE: To theoretically derive and empirically validate the relationship between the actual thick intraocular lens and the thin lens equivalent. METHODS: Included in the study were 12 consecutive adult patients ranging in age from 54 to 84 years (mean ± SD, 73.5 ± 9.4 years) with...
PURPOSE: Experience is reported with intraoperative pharmacologic lysis of recent submacular hemorrhage with tissue plasminogen activator followed by surgical drainage of the unclotted blood in patients with retinal arterial macroaneurysms. METHODS: Nine eyes (nine patients) with a recent (≤7...
PURPOSE: To evaluate the retinal thickness analyzer, a new image analyzer involving laser-slit biomicroscopy, for quantitative assessment of retinal thickness in patients with macular edema secondary to retinal vein occlusion. METHODS: Fifty-eight patients (central retinal vein occlusion, 22...
PURPOSE To summarize local complications and observations following enucleation of eyes with large choroidal melanoma that were reported prospectively at scheduled examinations of patients enrolled in the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study (COMS) randomized trial of pre-enucleation radiation....
PURPOSE: To identify the BIGH3 gene mutation in 10 unrelated Japanese individuals with granular corneal dystrophy. METHODS: Genomic DNA was obtained from each patient’s leukocytes. Exons 4 and 12 of the BIGH3 gene were amplified by polymerase chain reaction and were directly sequenced. RESULTS:...
PURPOSE: To determine the frequency of remission in patients with essential blepharospasm and Meige syndrome. METHOD: Retrospective analysis of patients by means of questionnaire in an institutional setting. RESULTS: Among 238 patients diagnosed in a single institution as having essential...
% %PURPOSE: A dummy orbit for enucleated eyes was developed for training residents in diagnostic and surgical procedures. METHODS: Porcine eyes were used to construct the model. The device is made of black anodized metal. The final prototype was tested for ease of use and optical quality....
PURPOSE: To investigate the validity of assigning patients whose eyes have been removed for ciliary body or choroidal melanoma to risk groups for metastasis based on the identification of microcirculatory patterns in one cross-section taken from the center of the tumor. METHODS: Multiple levels...
