Renin-angiotensin system expression and secretory function in cultured human ciliary body non-pigmented epithelium
Background: Renin-angiotensin system (RAS) components have been identified in human ciliary body and aqueous humour, pointing to a role for the RAS in the regulation of aqueous humour dynamics. Here,Expand
Optic disc cup slope and visual field indices in normal, ocular hypertensive and early glaucomatous eyes
Aim: To evaluate the correlation between internal slope analysis of the optic nerve head and visual field changes in normal eyes and those with ocular hypertension (OHT) and early glaucoma (POAG).Expand
Recent trends in chlamydial and gonococcal conjunctivitis among neonates and adults in an Irish hospital.
BACKGROUND Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae are two important and frequently overlooked causes of neonatal and adult conjunctivitis. OBJECTIVES AND METHODS In order to improveExpand
Malignant melanoma of the ciliary body presenting as extraocular metastasis in the temporalis muscle
We present the case of a 37 y.o. man with a metastatic malignant melanoma of the left temporalis muscle and a left ciliary body melanoma, arising from a melanocytoma. The tumour showed diffuse,Expand
Effects of autologous platelet concentrate and serum on retinal wound healing in an animal model
Abstract.Background: The beneficial effects of adjuvant treatment with agents such as autologous platelet concentrate (APC) or autologous serum (AS) in the surgical management of macular holes remainExpand
Visual and anatomical success with short-term macular tamponade and autologous platelet concentrate
Abstract Background: This study aimed to determine whether, in eyes treated for macular hole by vitrectomy and autologous platelet injection, short-term tamponade with SF6 gas was as effective asExpand
Intravitreal triamcinolone for diffuse diabetic macular oedema
AimTo evaluate the efficacy of intravitreal triamcinolone (IVTA) for the treatment of diffuse diabetic macular oedema (DME) refractory to conventional argon macular laser therapy.MethodsAExpand
Prevention of visual field defects after macular hole surgery
BACKGROUND/AIM The pathogenesis of visual field loss associated with macular hole surgery is uncertain but a number of explanations have been proposed, the most convincing of which is the effect ofExpand
