Twenty-eight patients with pseudotumor cerebri underwent 40 optic nerve sheath fenestrations for relief of visual loss or to preserve vision. Twenty women and eight men underwent 16 unilateral fenestrations and 12 bilateral operations. Papilledema disappeared or was strikingly reduced in 24 of 28 patients. The other four patients had gliotic discs (two(More)
BACKGROUND Many different types of orbital implants have been used after enucleation. Associated complications such as infection, exposure, extrusion, and ptosis have been reported. OBJECTIVE To describe 342 consecutive patients who underwent enucleation with intraorbital implant placement at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami School of(More)
PURPOSE To simulate a transphenoidal medial optic canal decompression and determine the anatomic effect on the optic nerve. METHODS A medial optic canal decompression was performed on 5 cadaveric optic canals within 12 hours of death. Two canals were decompressed under direct visualization and 3 were decompressed by a transphenoidal endoscopic approach.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Endovascular transvenous embolization has been advocated as the treatment technique for dural carotid cavernous fistulas (dCCFs). Most centers use platinum coils primarily. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the technical aspects, efficacy, and safety of transvenous n-butyl cyanoacrylate (n-BCA) infusion in dCCFs as a primary(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical features, causes, imaging characteristics, treatment, and outcome of patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and sino-orbital aspergillosis. DESIGN Records of 5 patients were reviewed. Results of imaging and histopathologic examinations and clinical courses of the patients were studied. RESULTS(More)
Human parasitization by oestrid flies is a rare occurrence. The authors report a case of ophthalmomyiasis externa caused by Dermatobia hominis infestation in a 10-year-old female. Misdiagnosis resulted in a delay in treatment, which can be potentially devastating in cases of orbital or ocular involvement. The treatment of choice is early surgical removal of(More)
Three patients with acquired orbital fat herniation are presented. Each was felt to have a dehiscence in Tenon's capsule, allowing fat to spontaneously herniate forward. Orbital fat herniation may be confused with other lesions, such as dermolipomas. The clinical features and differential diagnosis of orbital fat prolapse are discussed.
PURPOSE To determine whether molecular genetic analysis of ocular-adnexal lymphoid tumors, combined with histopathology and tumor location, is helpful in predicting which patients will develop systemic lymphoma. METHODS A combined retrospective and prospective study of 77 patients with ocular-adnexal lymphoid tumors was performed. The tumors were(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the presence of bacterial biofilms on a dacryocystorhinostomy silicone stent and a Jones tube. METHODS One dacryocystorhinostomy silicone stent and one Jones tube were removed from 2 patients who presented with an infection of their respective nasolacrimal system. Cultures were obtained, and the implants were processed for scanning(More)
IMPORTANCE We developed a novel strategy for treatment of Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) caused by a mutation in the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide dehydrogenase subunit IV (ND4) mitochondrial gene. OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the safety and effects of the gene therapy vector to be used in a proposed gene therapy clinical trial. DESIGN AND SETTING(More)
