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)
BACKGROUND 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. METHODS This consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND 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(More)
BACKGROUND Glaucoma is one of the sight-threatening complications of Fuchs' uveitis syndrome (FUS) and the most difficult to manage. The goal of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of cyclophotocoagulation (CPC) in the management of glaucoma secondary to FUS. METHODS In a retrospective analysis, the charts of all patients with FUS referred to(More)
AIM To assess the long-term efficacy and tolerability of both derivatives of mycophenolic acid, mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and mycophenolate sodium (MPS), in the therapy of patients with birdshot chorioretinopathy (BSCR). METHODS Retrospective analysis of 24 patients (48 eyes) with BSCR, treated with MMF or MPS with a follow-up of at least 1 year. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the foveal surface using binary image analysis after spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) following 23-gauge macular surgery in epiretinal membranes (ERM) using either air tamponade (AIR) or balanced salt solution (BSS). METHODS One hundred twenty-four eyes (124 patients) with ERM that had undergone membrane peeling(More)
