PURPOSE To investigate macular changes in acute retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). METHODS Fifty-four premature infants with ROP and 20 controls underwent routine ROP screening with indirect ophthalmoscopy and imaging. A tabletop spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) scanner (Spectralis; Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) was(More)
PURPOSE To assess anatomic and visual outcome following vitrectomy for stage 4B retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) after 3 years follow-up. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 56 eyes (46 infants) with stage 4B ROP-related retinal detachment. Eyes underwent either lens-sparing vitrectomy (LSV) or combined lensectomy and vitrectomy (LV). Visual outcome after a(More)
OBJECTIVE To correlate the ophthalmic findings of patients with pediatric vitreoretinopathies with mutations occurring in the FZD4 gene. METHODS A total of 123 patients diagnosed with autosomal-dominant familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (AdFEVR) or retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and 42 control patients were enrolled in the study. Diagnoses were based(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the incidence, spectrum and treatment outcome of Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) in a rural neonatal nursery. METHODS This Prospective, observational, non-randomized study was conducted in a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at district headquarters in South India. 118 babies with birth weight ≤2000 g and/or period of(More)
Earlier research indicated the efficacy of a complex herbal formulation in the attenuation of electroconvulsive shock (ECS)-induced amnestic deficits in rats; this study sought to ascertain whether a simplified herbal formulation (Memorin; Phyto-Pharma, India) also was effective. Rats pretreated for a fortnight with Memorin (200 mg/kg/day) or vehicle were(More)
JALALI AND ASSOCIATES MUST BE CONGRATULATED FOR their prospective series in which they report improved outcomes of laser photoablation for aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity (APROP). The authors emphasized the importance of correcting systemic comorbidities in babies with APROP in their series, stating that among babies with a hemoglobin of 10(More)
PURPOSE To study the structural sequelae and refractive outcome in eyes with a favorable structural outcome following laser treatment for threshold retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). METHODS Premature infants with threshold ROP had laser treatment with a minimum follow-up of 1 year. Complete ocular examination and refraction was done. Analysis and(More)
PURPOSE Universal eye screening of neonates is currently not standard of care. Early detection of abnormalities could offer prompt management and a reduction in visual morbidity. We report a pilot study using wide-field digital imaging to screen all infants at birth to explore its feasibility as a tool for universal screening. METHODS Consecutively(More)
PURPOSE To acquire high definition spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images of supine, non-anesthetized infants in the office by a novel modification of a commercially available table-top, chin rest system. METHOD Spectralis, a combined HRA+OCT device (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) was modified to convert the table-top(More)
