Risk of retinal detachment after cataract extraction, 1980-2004: a population-based study.
The cumulative risk of RD after ECCE and phacoemulsification is increased for up to 20 years after surgery, and male gender, younger age, myopia, increased axial length, and posterior capsular tear were associated significantly with RD.
Development of metastatic disease after enrollment in the COMS trials for treatment of choroidal melanoma: Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study Group Report No. 26.
Metastasis rate increased significantly with increasing primary tumor dimensions at time of patient enrollment, and effective methods are needed to prevent, diagnose, and treat metastasis from choroidal melanoma.
Retinal lesions in tuberous sclerosis.
Retinal lesions in 116 patients with tuberous sclerosis included three types: the relatively flat, semitransparent, non-calcified tumors; the more commonly described nodular, calcified tumors; and a
Transpupillary thermotherapy as primary treatment for small choroidal melanomas.
Short-term follow-up suggests that TTT may arrest growth of selected small melanomas, which is usually followed by early tumor shrinkage but is complicated by dense scotomas, nerve fiber bundle defects, and occasionally macular abnormalities.
Treatment choice and quality of life in patients with choroidal melanoma.
Choice of treatment for choroidal melanoma does not seem to be associated with large differences in quality of life in long-term follow-up, and there were few differences in any of the quality-of-life measures by treatment status.
Direct, indirect, and sham laser photocoagulation in the management of central serous chorioretinopathy.
The role of argon laser photocoagulation in the management of central serous choriorectinopathy was evaluated in a prospective randomized study of eyes with leaks smaller than 250 microns in diameter
Prognosis for central vision and anatomic reattachment in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with macula detached.
No statistical relationship was found between either anatomic success or functional result and the presence of aphakia, demarcation lines, vitreous hemorrhage, detachments of the pars plana epithelium, or predetachment glaucoma being treated.
Long-term follow-up of occlusion of the central retinal vein in young adults.
The presence of anomalous disk vessels closely correlated with a favorable prognosis in patients who had complete occlusion of the central retinal vein in order to learn its course and determine the frequency of related systemic disorders.
Ophthalmic features of necrobiotic xanthogranuloma with paraproteinemia.
Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma of the skin is associated with paraproteinemia and, often, with plasma proliferative disorders, including multiple myeloma, and low-dose chemotherapy is likely to produce a favorable response, with regard to both the skin lesions and the paraprotein abnormalities.
Retinal detachment in Olmsted County, Minnesota, 1976 through 1995.
Cataract surgery is associated with a significantly elevated long-term cumulative probability of retinal detachment and this study found that rhegmatogenous RD in residents after cataract extraction was three times as high as would have been expected in a similar group of county residents not undergoing cataracts surgery.
