The global prevalence of diabetes is estimated to be 336 million people, with diabetic complications contributing to significant worldwide morbidity and mortality. Diabetic retinopathy results from cumulative microvascular damage to the retina and inflammation is recognized as a critical driver of this disease process. This paper outlines the(More)
Many of the clinical features associated with familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) overlap with those commonly found in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Differentiating these two distinct entities may be challenging in premature infants. FEVR can be distinguished from ROP in that the former demonstrates exudates on examination and tends to recur or(More)
OBJECTIVE To collaborate with multiple centers to identify representative epidemiological, clinical, and pathologic characteristics of melanoma of the iris. This international, multicenter, Internet-assisted study in ophthalmic oncology demonstrates the collaboration among eye cancer specialists to stage and describe the clinical and pathologic(More)
Noninvasive detection of Helicobacter pylori (HP) requires serum or salivary antibody testing or the CO2 breath test. Since gastric HP produces a potent urease, a meal rich in 13C-labeled urea should lead to a measurable quantity of isotopic CO2 in the serum. This study investigates the feasibility, sensitivity, specificity, and potential of the measurement(More)
OBJECT Computed tomography angiography (CTA) is increasingly used as a screening tool in the investigation of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). However, CTA carries additional costs and risks, necessitating its judicious use. The authors hypothesized that subsets of patients with nontraumatic, nonsubarachnoid ICH are unlikely to benefit from CTA(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to analyze the dose response of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor, rapamycin, on tumor burden and hypoxia, and study the treatment effect on vasculature in LH(BETA)T(AG) retinal tumors. METHODS This study was approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee and follows Association for(More)
An unusual example of an intratarsal meibomian keratinous cyst is described in a 69-year-old man with spontaneous transepithelial (conjunctival) elimination. The lesion created an externally visible lump in the eyelid, which on eversion was found to be accompanied by yellow-whitish protruding material with a surrounding circular mound of reactive tissue.(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the utility of high resolution 20 MHz ophthalmic ultrasound in serial follow-up of optic nerve head melanocytoma patients. METHODS This study is a retrospective review of 30 patients with melanocytoma of the optic nerve head studied with echography. All patients were evaluated with standard ophthalmic A-scan and B-scan(More)
Familial multiple lipomatosis (FML) is a rare entity. We report a family with this disease. Karyotypic analysis was performed on tissue isolated from excised lipomas and peripheral blood. No chromosomal abnormalities were found. This is the first report of karyotypic analysis of lipomas removed from a patient with FML. The finding of a normal karyotype is(More)
PURPOSE To examine the effects of prosthesis refitting on porous orbital implant exposure in 100 patients who underwent enucleation for retinoblastoma. METHODS Parameters analyzed included patient's age at enucleation, gender, implant type, frequency of prosthesis adjustment, and use of chemotherapy or radiation. The main outcome measures consisted of the(More)
