The Verteporfin in Photodynamic Therapy (VIP) Study failed to prove a statistically significant benefit for myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) at the end of the second year. Therefore, we wanted to evaluate whether the early effects seen under anti-VEGF treatment can be maintained over longer follow-up intervals. This consecutive case series included(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to assess the long-term efficacy and tolerability of tumour necrosis factor α (TNFα) inhibitors in the therapy of children with refractory antinuclear antibody (ANA)-associated chronic anterior uveitis. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 31 children with ANA-associated uveitis, treated with TNFα inhibitors with a follow-up(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, a conjunctival-sparing ab interno approach for circumferential trabeculotomy, termed micro-invasive suture trabeculotomy (MIST) and its preliminary results are presented. DESIGN Retrospective case-series in a university setting. PARTICIPANTS A total of 31 patients with open-angle glaucoma with history of canaloplasty. METHODS(More)
Indocyanine green (ICG) has been widely used as a vital dye for macular surgery. However, ICG can be toxic to retinal cells. Here we evaluate whether tempol (4-hydroxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl), a free radical scavenger, can protect against ICG-induced retinal damage in rats. Brown Norway rats received intravitreal injections of ICG 0.5 % or BSS(More)
AIM To assess the efficacy and tolerability of mycophenolate sodium (MPS) in the therapy of children with chronic non-infectious uveitis. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 23 children with chronic uveitis, treated with MPS, with a follow-up of at least 6 months. The main outcome measures were time to uveitis reactivation and corticosteroid-sparing effect(More)
PURPOSE To report the visual and morphological outcomes following intravitreal bevacizumab in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) with submacular, predominantly hemorrhagic, lesions. METHODS Retrospective study of patients with a follow-up after 1 year. All eyes with submacular hemorrhages larger than 50% of the total lesion size and(More)
To investigate the use of a small gravity- and tilt-compensated, head-fixed sensor with data-logging function to measure compliance and head posture of patients after macular hole surgery based on the recommendation of a face-down position. Main outcome measures were the median inclination, the times with correct or incorrect head position and the(More)
