We examined 61 affected members of eight families with an inherited corneal dystrophy. The corneal abnormalities varied greatly from one member of a family to another. Some patients had only a few isolated endothelial vesicles, while others in the same family had severe secondary stromal and epithelial edema. In some patients edema was present at birth or(More)
BACKGROUND Most patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia or small lymphocytic lymphoma relapse after initial therapy. Bendamustine plus rituximab is often used in the relapsed or refractory setting. We assessed the efficacy and safety of adding ibrutinib, an oral covalent inhibitor of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK), to bendamustine plus rituximab in(More)
Nineteen patients who complained of red eyes had the characteristic clinical signs of an atypical carotid-cavernous fistula. Episcleral veins were dilated, intraocular pressure and episcleral venous pressure were high, and blood filled Schlemm's canal during gonioscopy. Most of the patients had mild exophthalmos, but in none was the exophthalmos obviously(More)
In a prospective randomized clinical trial we compared the efficacy and safety of trabeculectomy and thermosclerostomy for the treatment of open angle glaucoma. Forty-eight eyes was treated by trabeculectomy and 50 eyes were treated by thermosclerostomy. The mean follow-up period was 2.7 years. Thermosclerostomy lowered intraocular pressure about 3 mm Hg(More)
To provide a bank of normal perimetric data, we tested the central and peripheral visual fields of 102 novice normal subjects using the Humphrey automated perimeter. All eyes used for visual field testing were first carefully examined to be sure that they were, indeed, normal. We calculated population means and standard deviations of each test location and(More)
Eighteen patients who, years earlier, had undergone operations for congenital cataracts were discovered to have high intraocular pressures. Several had profound glaucomatous loss of vision. All had deep anterior chambers with flat iris planes and wide open angles. The uveal meshwork was unusually coarse and pigmented in some cases. Nystagmus,(More)
What is the cause of glaucoma in Sturge-Weber syndrome? Looking for the answer to this puzzling question, we examined 21 patients with the disease. Sixteen patients had gglaucoma: three bilateral and 13 unilateral. Episcleral hemangiomas were visible in all glaucomatous eyes. In general, the more extensive the hemangioma, the more severe was the glaucoma.(More)
Thirty-seven eyes with open-angle glaucoma were treated by trabeculectomy and 34 eyes were treated by thermosclerostomy. Thermosclerostomy lowered intraocular pressure to a slightly greater extent than trabeculectomy; however, the average difference was not statistically significant except for the second year. After five years, IOPs were less than 22 mm Hg(More)
We describe two patients (two eyes) with neovascular glaucoma following photoradiation therapy (PRT) for ciliary body and iris melanoma. Histopathologic examination in one eye eight months after treatment disclosed widespread tumor necrosis. The second patient with iris melanoma showed total clinical disappearance of the lesion and regression of iris(More)
We compared the pattern of visual field loss in 148 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma and 63 patients with secondary glaucoma. The frequency with which each location in the visual field was defective was similar in the two conditions. The most common visual field defects in both varieties of glaucoma were superior arcuate scotomas and superior nasal(More)
