Pseudophakic retinal detachment. Surgical success rate with various types of IOLs.
The overall anatomic success rate of surgical treatment of 122 consecutive cases of pseudophakic retinal detachment was 82%. In 78 eyes with iris-supported intraocular lenses (IOLs), the success rateExpand
Long-term complications of the MAI hydrogel intrascleral buckling implant.
Seven cases in which long-term complications developed from swelling of the MAI hydrogel intrascleral buckling implant are reported herein. Micro-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic analysis ofExpand
Vitreous hemorrhage after closed vitrectomy for proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
The authors reviewed the medical records of 191 patients (232 eyes) who underwent closed vitrectomy for complications of diabetic retinopathy to evaluate the clinical picture of postvitrectomyExpand
Bacterial endophthalmitis after closed vitrectomy.
Four cases of bacterial endophthalmitis occurred after more than 2,800 closed vitrectomies. Despite vigorous antibiotic therapy, all four eyes were lost. The poor outcome seems to result fromExpand
Asteroid hyalosis. Biomicroscopy, ultrastructure, and composition.
The vitreous in 16 patients (average age, 65 years) with asteroid hyalosis was studied and photographed using a preset lens (El Bayadi-Kajiura) and slitlamp. Asteroid hyalosis was bilateral in oneExpand
Retinoic acid in silicone and silicone-fluorosilicone copolymer oils in a rabbit model of proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
PURPOSE The authors evaluated the effect of retinoic acid (RA) in silicone oil (SiO) and in silicone-fluorosilicone (SiFO) copolymer oil in a new rabbit model of proliferative vitreoretinopathyExpand
Complications of surgery for subfoveal choroidal neovascularization.
Advancing surgical techniques have made the surgical excision of subfoveal CNV possible in all cases. However, serious surgical complications lead to a limited visual outcome in many cases. The majorExpand
Edema of posterior pole after cataract extraction. A biomicroscopic study.
Although edema of the posterior pole of the fundus following cataract extraction has been recognized as an entity since 1952,1its etiology is still undetermined.2Hypotony, vascular instability,Expand
Factors related to corneal epithelial complications after closed vitrectomy in diabetics.
In a series of 30 vitrectomy patients, postoperative corneal complications developed in 14 (47%). Thirteen (92%) of the 14 patients with complications were diabetic. Other factors that wereExpand
Biomicroscopic study of vitreous cavity in diabetic retinopathy.
Two of the most serious complications of diabetic retinopathy are vitreous hemorrhage and retinal detachment. The purpose of this paper is to describe observations made of the vitreous cavity inExpand
