Pattern ERG (P-ERG) changes were studied in patients with suspected glaucoma. P-ERG was recorded in 48 eyes with good visual acuity, normal visual fields and elevated intraocular pressure ranging between 18 and 26 mm Hg. The amplitude of the P1 wave was within normal limits and ranged between 1.0 and 1.9 microV in 46 eyes (95.8%). In contrast, the amplitude(More)
The retinal toxic effect after intravitreal use of ganciclovir has been the subject of our experimental investigation on 20 New Zealand rabbits. Different doses of ganciclovir ranging from 200 to 600 micrograms/0.1 ml were injected intravitreously, and ERG changes were recorded at different time points after drug administration. Finally the animals were(More)
In a series of 233 keratoconus cases, electroretinograms (ERGs) and visual evoked responses (VERs) were recorded; the results of this study are discussed. In six cases, the ERGs were extinguished, and the VERs were pathologic. In contrast to this, in four cases, ERGs were normal, but VERs were pathologic. Postoperatively the electrophysiologic findings(More)
Patients suffering from chronic viral hepatitis, treated with interferon alpha-2b in a dose of 3 million units trice weekly subcutaneously, were studied. The influence of interferon on the optic nerve was evaluated by measuring the P100 implicit time of the visual evoked potentials. The results before the treatment were compared with those after 6 and 12(More)
Disturbances of the oscillatory potentials of the ERG are examined in diabetic patients with and without vascular lesions of the retina. More specifically, the changes of the oscillatory potentials are investigated in relation to the manifestation and evolution of diabetic retinopathy and neovascularization of the optic disk and the retina. Particular(More)
The electroretinographic (ERG) changes and the retinal lesions shown by electron microscopy were studied in rabbits after intravitreal use of amikacin and tobramycin. We studied 40 eyes of 20 rabbits in which different doses ranging from 250 micrograms to 1000 micrograms of aminoglycosides were injected into the vitreous cavity. Tobramycin, and to some(More)
In this experimental study the authors studied the Eclectroretinographic alterations and the histological lesions after the introduction of foreign bodies of iron and copper into the vitreous body of eyes of rabbits. The ERG alterations depend on the kind of the intraocular foreign body and on the size and the time it remained into the eye. These(More)
C-wave and ERG records have been taken from patients with juvenile macular degeneration, cone dysfunction syndrome, non exudative macular degeneration and from patients who have taken hydroxychloroquine for more than a year. The study of these recordings showed that in juvenile macular degeneration the involved area might be larger than ophthalmoscopically(More)
The C wave was recorded from 20 eyes suffering from neuritis due to demyelinating disease and in 5 eyes showing optic atrophy due to trauma or to increased intracranial pressure. Our results show that in cases with optic neuritis the C wave amplitude was clearly lower than normal. It is interesting that in the other 'healthy', at least clinically, eye the C(More)
