OBJECTIVE To describe the management of complications in eyes containing two intraocular lenses (IOLs). DESIGN A retrospective noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Eight patients having a dislocated posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) and a secondary anterior chamber intraocular lens (AC IOL) participated. INTERVENTION Surgical treatment(More)
Peripheral retinal cryopexy resulted in stabilization of progressive retinopathy and vitreous hemorrhage in 13 eyes of 13 diabetics. In most cases, cryopexy followed complete or nearly complete pan-retinal photocoagulation which did not prevent subsequent vitreous hemorrhage. No eyes in our series hemorrhaged following cryopexy during the period of(More)
A 72-year-old white man who had undergone surgical trabeculectomy and extracapsular cataract extraction with a posterior-chamber lens implantation in the left eye suffered from chronic iridocyclitis for eight months. He subsequently presented with acute hypopyon and vitritis. Anterior-chamber and vitreous cultures were positive for Pseudomonas cepacia. The(More)
We examined an immunocompetent patient with uniocular acute progressive outer retinitis. The retinitis was curvilinear in shape, showed progressive enlargement, and appeared to be altered by treatment with intravenous acyclovir. When regressed, the affected area of retina appeared atrophic and, at one-year follow-up, demonstrated intraretinal pigment(More)
Recurrent vitreous hemorrhage associated with proliferative retinopathy can occur in eyes that do not satisfactorily respond to argon laser pantretinal photocoagulation. To evaluate the effect of relatively low-risk surgical intervention, we performed peripheral retinal cryopexy on 24 eyes of 23 diabetic patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy and(More)
OBJECTIVE We undertook a retrospective analysis of the incidence of complications of carbon dioxide (CO2) laser excision for high-grade vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia (HG-VaIN). MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective large case series on 128 CO2 laser excisions for HG-VaIN in 106 women treated at the Department of Gynecologic Oncology, Oncologic Referral(More)
