PURPOSE To evaluate the indications, visual outcomes, and complication rate after implantation of a posterior chamber iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University Medicine Charité Berlin, Berlin, Germany. DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS Eyes without adequate capsule support had posterior chamber(More)
PURPOSE Integrin alpha5beta1, a fibronectin receptor, is involved in endothelial cell migration and proliferation. Here we investigate the effect of JSM6427, an integrin alpha5beta1 inhibiting molecule, on the development of retinal vascular system using the mouse model of oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR). METHODS Endothelial cell migration and sprouting(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the indications, visual outcomes, and complication rate after posterior implantation of an iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL) in subluxated lenses due to Marfan syndrome. METHODS Eyes without adequate capsular support had posterior chamber iris-claw aphakic IOL implantation between 2006 and 2012. RESULTS This retrospective(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of a refractive phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) (PRL) to correct moderate to high myopia. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University Medicine Charité Berlin, Berlin, Germany. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHODS Uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuities, refraction,(More)
PURPOSE Recurrence of herpetic keratitis and immune reactions is the major cause of graft failures after penetrating keratoplasty as a consequence of herpes simplex keratitis. No treatment regimen is yet considered a standard of care. This retrospective study analyzes the effectiveness of combined systemic acyclovir and immunosuppressive therapy with(More)
To investigate outcome and postoperative complications in patients undergoing isolated DMEK in phakic eyes compared to patients undergoing DMEK combined with cataract surgery (triple procedure). A retrospective analysis of 13 eyes undergoing DMEK in phakic eyes and 54 eyes undergoing triple procedure. Intraoperative and postoperative complications were(More)
PURPOSE To compare the visual outcomes and postoperative complications in patients undergoing penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) in 1 eye followed by Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in their fellow eye. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 11 patients, who underwent a PKP procedure first in 1 eye and then a DMEK surgery in their fellow eye,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the indications, visual outcomes, and complication rate after posterior implantation of an iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL) in children. DESIGN Noncomparative retrospective cohort study. METHODS setting: Institutional practice. patients/intervention procedures: Seven eyes of 4 children without adequate capsular support had(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate clinical outcomes and complications after Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in a child. METHODS A 12-year-old boy with Kearns-Sayre syndrome (chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia, cardiac conduction block, and pigmentary retinal degeneration) and corneal endothelial dysfunction was successfully treated with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate clinical outcomes and complications after Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) and posterior iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. METHODS This prospective cohort study comprised seven consecutive eyes (seven patients) without adequate capsular support and bullous keratopathy undergoing posterior iris-claw(More)
