To study the optical coherence tomography (OCT) characteristics in children with optic pathway glioma (OPG) to determine if OCT changes occur alongside clinical/radiological changes at diagnosis and during the second-year follow-up. Twenty-three patients (38 eyes) diagnosed with symptomatic OPG in a single institution were enrolled in this longitudinal(More)
AIM To report the microbiological spectrum of acute and chronic dacrocystitis. METHODS Retrospective study on 100 patients who presented to the ophthalmic plastic clinic of a tertiary eye care center from May 2011 and April 2013 with acute and chronic dacryocystitis was reviewed for demographic and microbiological profile. The culture results and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate longer term histological changes of extraocular muscles induced by bupivacaine toxicity. METHODS The superior rectus and inferior rectus of white rabbits were injected with 0.4 mg of agent in 0.3 ml of bupivacaine., Then, histological changes of these rectus muscles were examined at 1,2,4 and 8 weeks after injection. RESULTS(More)
Anterior megalophthalmos, a rare hereditary disorder, is macrocornea (horizontal corneal diameter more than 13 mm) in association with enlarged lens-iris diaphragm and ciliary ring. One of the major challenging issues in the cataract surgery of these patients is preventing intraocular lens (IOL) malposition, because of probable large capsular bag. Several(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the results of conjunctival culture in patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) and its changes after successful dacryocystorhinostomy surgery. METHODS In this prospective study, 71 adult patients with NLDO and 41 age- and sex-matched controls without NLDO were evaluated. The patients were divided in 2 groups based on(More)
To evaluate the prevalence of amblyopia risk factors in children that underwent probing for persistent congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). The medical records of children with CNLDO (after 1 year of age) that underwent probing were reviewed. Amblyopia risk factors, based on the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus(More)
PURPOSE To describe a technique for excisional biopsy of eyelid papillomatous lesions using a radiofrequency (RF) unit. METHOD In this prospective, interventional case series, 64 patients with eyelid papillomatous lesions underwent excisional biopsy using an RF unit. RESULTS The upper eyelid was involved in 34.5% and the lower eyelid was involved in(More)
PURPOSE To assess the success rate of pushed stent intubation in children with complex congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). METHODS This prospective study was performed in a single academic center. Forty-four eyes with complex CNLDO were treated with pushed stent intubation. Outcome measures included clinical signs plus a parental history of(More)
BACKGROUND The nasal septal deviation (NSD) is one of the major causes of nasal obstruction. This condition increases upper airway resistance. In This study we evaluated the mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP) in patients with markedly deviated septum. METHODS Sixty two patients with NSD (Age range: 26-45 years, 34 men and 28 women) were included in the(More)
This article compares the success rate between monocanalicular (MCI) and bicanalicular intubations (BCI) in incomplete complex congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) and evaluate the factors responsible for the success of intubation. First, 99 patients with incomplete complex CNLDO underwent MCI (Monoka) or BCI (Crawford). Therapeutic success was(More)
