Quasi-experimental methods increasingly are used to evaluate the impacts of conservation interventions by generating credible estimates of counterfactual baselines. These methods generally require large samples for statistical comparisons, presenting a challenge for evaluating innovative policies implemented within a few pioneering jurisdictions. Single(More)
Twenty-seven patients with toxemia of pregnancy were examined during a postpartum period of two days to eight months. Five of these manifested abnormal photographic and angiographic findings including disk and retinal edema, retinal striae, deep retinal yellow-white focal lesions, choroidal nonfilling, leakage of dye from the optic disk and deep retinal(More)
Topical instillation of inhibitors of monoamine oxidase Types A and B into the rabbit eye, followed by the administration of a releaser of monoamines (Ro 4-1284), induces strong and sustained dilation of the iris. The mydriatic pattern differs markedly with A- and B-inhibitors and with the duration of the inhibitor treatment. The Type B inhibitor, deprenyl,(More)
We measured the horizontal diameter, vertical diameter, and area of the optic disk in fellow eyes of patients with unilateral nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy and in control eyes without ocular disease. The fellow eyes of patients with anterior ischemic optic neuropathy had a smaller horizontal than vertical disk diameter (P less than .05), a(More)
A 21-year-old man was exposed accidentally to the flash of a high-tension short circuit. He subsequently developed a yellow-gray foveolar lesion with mild central visual loss. Fluorescein angiography demonstrated the area of retinal pigment epithelial disruption and was used to follow its evolution over eight months. The energy level at the retina was(More)
Based upon the ultrasonographic evidence of extraocular muscle abnormalities in all patients with orbitopathy and proven thyroid disease, we conclude that the basic abnormality of thyroid orbitopathy is a panmyositis and that all of the classes described by Werner are expressions of different degrees and manifestations of the same pathologic process. This(More)
Cystoid macular edema was commonly observed in retinitis pigmentosa and documented, fluorangiographically, in 70% (41) of 58 consecutive patients. Macular fluorescence representing the intraretinal accumulation of dye from leaking perifoveal capillaries was best seen by simultaneous projection of early- and late-phase angiograms. This facilitated(More)
Our study shows that use of a small dose of subconjunctival 5-FU provides significantly lower postoperative intraocular pressure than does no antimetabolite treatment. Morphology of the postoperative blebs suggests that increased filtration results in lower intraocular pressure in the 5-FU group. Corneal epithelial defects were as common with a low dose as(More)
Recurrent erosion of the cornea has been well documented in patients with nontraumatic anterior membrane dystrophies of various types. We examined five patients who, in addition to an erosion, developed stromal keratitis. Three of these patients were subjected to a complete microbiologic workup, but the lesions were all sterile. The lesions healed with(More)
