Twenty-four patients who had an osteochondral fracture of the dome of the talus were examined by plain radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, computerized tomography, and, when indicated, scintigraphy. When plain radiographs of the ankle are relied on for the diagnosis of an osteochondral fracture of the talus, many lesions remain undiagnosed. Stage-I(More)
Multiple enchondromatosis (Oilier's disease)' is a rare, non-hereditary condition of unknown aetiology in which cartilaginous masses are found in bones. We report a patient with Oilier's disease who presented with a parasellar syndrome due to a chondrosarcoma in the cavernous sinus. The association of Ollier's disease and intracranial cartilaginous tumours(More)
Surfboard riding is a popular sport worldwide. Although surfing is considered a ‘safe’ pastime, significant injuries do occur, particularly to the head and cervical spine. Spinal injuries most commonly occur when the surfer’s head strikes the seafloor. This case series identifies the spectrum of spinal pathologies sustained whilst surfing and their imaging(More)
Occular involvement is infrequent and blindness rare in Churg-Strauss syndrome. We describe a patient with Churg-Strauss syndrome who presented with blindness. This was associated with the appearance of circulating autoantibodies to myeloperoxidase.
The exact function of the sympathetic nervous system in the regulation of intraocular pressure remains unclear. Many observers have noted reduced intraocular pressure in eyes whose sympathetic supply has been interrupted. A case of ocular sympathetic denervation associated with ocular hypertension is reported. Reports on the relationship between intraocular(More)
Results and complications of surgical treatment for retinal detachment in thirteen patients with proliferative sickle cell retinopathy are reported. Eleven had maintained or improved visual acuity after treatment. Methods and complications of exchange transfusion in eight patients are described. The pathogenesis and methods of treatment of these retinal(More)
Iris autonomic function was studied by binocular infrared pupillometry in 12 patients with acute primary angle closure glaucoma (APACG) and 28 control subjects. Light reflex amplitude and resting darkness pupil diameter were reduced and miotic response to pilocarpine 0.125% drops increased in APACG when compared to controls with anterior chamber depths(More)
Ocular and cardiovascular effects of carteolol 2%, timolol 0.5%, and dummy eyedrops have been measured in a single dose double-blind crossover study in six healthy volunteers. Both drugs lowered intraocular pressure and reduced exercise-induced tachycardia. Neither produced a significant change in resting heart rate or blood pressure. The two agents appear(More)
1. Intraocular pressure and cardiovascular responses to metipranolol 0.1% and 0.3% and timolol 0.25% eyedrops were measured in a balanced single dose placebo-controlled crossover study in eight healthy volunteers aged 34-58 years. 2. Timolol 0.25% and metipranolol 0.3% reduced intraocular pressure throughout the 6 h period of observation to a similar(More)
