METHODS Retrospective, consecutive case series. Chart review of 105 patients (126 eyes) who had KPro implantation at Cincinnati Eye Institute between November 2004 and November 2010 and who were(More)
BACKGROUND Both COX-2 selective inhibitors (coxibs) and nonselective (ns)-NSAIDs elevate blood pressure (BP) and this may contribute to excess cardiovascular (CV) events. A number of recent large-scale randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing coxibs (including newer agents, lumiracoxib and etoricoxib) to both ns-NSAIDs and placebo have been reported,(More)
Radiotherapy plays an important role in the management of lung cancer, with over 50% of patients receiving this modality at some point during their treatment. Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is a technique that adds fluence modulation to beam shaping, which improves radiotherapy dose conformity around the tumor and spares surrounding normal(More)
We present a case of Colletotrichum truncatum species complex fungal keratitis and endophthalmitis in an 87-year-old immunocompetent male in whom oral triazole antifungals were contraindicated. The patient had recently returned from 4 months in Jamaica with a one month history of progressively increasing pain and inflammation in his left eye. Corneal(More)

In the brain, the salient features were microencephaly,(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence, clinical features, and outcomes of infectious keratitis after Boston type 1 keratoprosthesis (Kpro) implantation. METHODS Ten cases of infectious keratitis were identified in a retrospective chart review of 105 patients (126 eyes) who received Kpro between November 2004 and November 2010 at the Cincinnati Eye Institute(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of an ab externo suture retrieval and scleral fixation technique in the treatment of subluxated posterior chamber intraocular lenses (PC IOLs). SETTING Academic tertiary care centers. METHODS Surgical databases from 2 surgeons were reviewed for consecutive cases from March 2000 to April 2004 in which the ab(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of accelerated crosslinking (irradiance of 9 mW/cm; 10 minutes) in keratoconus-affected eyes through topographical, visual, and refractive end points. METHODS Mild-moderate keratoconus-affected eyes that underwent accelerated corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) treatment and had 6 and 12 months of(More)
PURPOSE To describe the systemic immunosuppression protocol used at the Cincinnati Eye Institute and University of Cincinnati, and to evaluate the success, tolerability, and side effects of systemic immunosuppression in patients undergoing ocular surface stem cell transplantation (OSST). METHODS Retrospective study of all patients who had OSST from 1997(More)
