The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of acute ischemia and reperfusion on blood-retinal barrier (BRB) function in the rabbit eye. Hydrostatic pressure (140 mmHg) was used to create total retinal ischemia for intervals of 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 min in the rabbit eye. The location, size and permeability-surface-area product normalized to the(More)
The incidence of vitreous loss among third-year residents learning phacoemulsification was retrospectively evaluated. One hundred thirty-six cases of phacoemulsification were performed by six different third-year residents with the same attending physician supervising all cases. The incidence of vitreous loss was 14.7%. This study demonstrates that the rate(More)
We present a patient with a cyclodialysis cleft in whom, after established medical, laser, and initial surgical interventions had failed to close the cleft, we successfully used ab externo suture placement to appose and close it. Although we present only one case, we believe this procedure, which may be useful in pseudophakic and aphakic eyes, is easier to(More)
PURPOSE Endophthalmitis is a severe inflammatory disorder with profound visual consequences. Treatment of this disorder has been limited by the lack of quantitative information regarding retinal responses to severe inflammation. The purpose of this study was to measure the effect of endotoxin-induced endophthalmitis on blood-retinal barrier (BRB) function(More)
The administration of medications by depot devices is a rapidly developing technology in ocular therapeutics. Sustained delivery of ophthalmic medications is a novel approach to treating chronic ocular conditions where systemic therapy may be accompanied by unwanted side effects and where repeated intravitreal drug administration carries significant risks.(More)
We report the case of a patient with isolated ocular involvement and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (also known as reticulum cell sarcoma). Most non-Hodgkin's central nervous system lymphomas are large cell lymphomas derived from B-cells. The patient initially had iritis OD and vitreous cells OS. Eventually, rubeosis and vitritis developed OD. A systemic workup(More)
