PURPOSE To study the change in visual acuity and refraction after cataract surgery using a toric posterior chamber intraocular lens in patients with astigmatism after penetrating keratoplasty. METHODS A retrospective case note analysis of cataract surgery involving toric lens implants performed at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital was conducted.(More)
PURPOSE To describe the technique of non-endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (NEN-DCR), and its indications and results. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective, non-randomized interventional case series, all consecutive cases presenting with epiphora between 2004 and 2006 were enrolled. Adult patients were divided into three subgroups: chronic(More)
Silicone sleeves are 1 method of stabilizing bicanalicular silicone intubation near the ostia during dacryocystorhinostomy surgery to prevent tube prolapse. Retained silicone sleeve following dacryocystorhinostomy is a rare and previously unreported complication that can occur despite endoscopic visualization during tube removal, particularly in narrow(More)
Suture line recurrence is an important cause of failure after potentially curative resection for colonic carcinoma. Our aim was to determine whether suture technique affected the incidence of perianastomotic tumours in experimentally induced colonic cancer. Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized into three groups. A 1 cm longitudinal colotomy was repaired with(More)
PURPOSE The effectiveness of intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide in the treatment of cystoid macular edema from central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) was investigated. DESIGN A noncomparative, prospective, interventional case series. METHODS In a clinical practice, 18 patients were enrolled with nonischemic CRVO and cystoid macular edema. Two(More)
Nonseminomatous germ cell testicular neoplasm is a disease cured primarily by platinum-based combination chemotherapy. Operation is reserved for those patients who continue to harbor residual masses after chemotherapy. Locoregional lymph nodes and lungs are common sites for residual deposits. Intracardiac metastases are very rare. We report a case of(More)
transient amplifying cells. The poor long-term outcome following simultaneous limbal transplantation and penetrating keratoplasty has prompted the recommendation of a staged procedure with a 1-year gap. Though a stable ocular surface and good vision have been attained following these surgeries, the inherent pathology remains. Photoprotective measures have(More)
