OBJECTIVES To describe progression and resolution of uveitis-associated cystoid macular edema (uvCME) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and find predictive factors for successful intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA) therapy. METHODS Twenty-nine eyes with treatment-naive uvCME were examined before and at 5 scheduled visits within 3(More)
PURPOSE To correlate retinal sensitivity in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with specific characteristics of retinal morphology. METHODS Thirty eyes of 30 patients presenting with active choroidal neovascularization were examined by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and microperimetry (MP-1).(More)
PURPOSE To relate the functional response to distinct morphological features of the retina during aflibercept treatment for neovascular AMD (nAMD). METHODS A total of 726 retinal locations in 22 consecutive eyes presenting with treatment-naive nAMD underwent a standardized examination with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and(More)
PURPOSE To identify neurosensory recovery, testing different functional variables during monthly intravitreal standard anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN Prospective interventional cohort study. METHODS Sixty-four treatment-naïve neovascular AMD patients with subfoveal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic characteristics of type 2 (classic) choroidal neovascularizations secondary to age-related macular degeneration using spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD OCT), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), and fluorescein angiography (FA). DESIGN Observational case series. METHODS SETTING Institutional. STUDY(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate morphological changes due to uveitis-associated cystoid macular oedema (uvCME) and their impact on central retinal sensitivity (CRS) before and after intravitreal triamcinolone-acetonide (IVTA). METHODS 28 eyes with uvCME were examined with microperimetry and spectral-domain optical-coherence-tomography (SD-OCT) before and after IVTA.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the functional treatment response 3 months and 12 months after monthly ranibizumab in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (NAMD). METHODS Twenty-six eyes showing treatment-naïve NAMD were examined with the Heidelberg Spectralis OCT (SD-OCT) and the Nidek MP-1 microperimeter (MP) at baseline, after 3 months, and after 12 months(More)
PURPOSE To develop a classification approach based solely on spectral domain optical coherence tomography to differentiate macular edema (ME) of different disease entities and to determine underlying pathology. METHODS A cross-sectional study including 153 participants: 27 with Irvine-Gass, 31 with uveitic ME, 24 with ME after branch retinal vein(More)
PURPOSE To quantitatively analyze morphological features in eyes with neovascular AMD (nAMD) at baseline, after 12 months, and after 24 months of intravitreal ranibizumab treatment and to perform a structure/function correlation. METHODS Eyes with treatment-naïve nAMD were treated with intravitreal ranibizumab according to a standardized dosing regimen(More)
The use of transport media has proved valuable in many fields of clinical bacteriology, and so has become quite common. However, this does not apply to the examination of stool in the search forSalmonella carriers. To evaluate its potential efficiency a commercial transport medium, the PortACul, has been tested parallel to the conventional glass tube in 315(More)
