PURPOSE To assess the value of neodymium:YAG membranotomy in achieving rapid intravitreal dispersion of dense diabetic premacular hemorrhage and allowing the identification and treatment of maculopathy before panretinal photocoagulation (PRP). METHODS A pilot study, in which nine eyes with dense diabetic premacular hemorrhages were treated with(More)
The volume of intraocular tumours can be calculated from tumour height and cross-sectional areas measured in maximal orthogonal B-mode ultrasonograms, on the assumption that the tumour morphology is hemi-ellipsoidal. Comparison of this method with an accurate but more complex computer-aided B-mode ultrasonic tomographic method demonstrated a highly linear(More)
It has been suggested that fumes from diesel engines make an important contribution to atmospheric pollution. This is probably because they are sometimes highly irritant and sometimes very smoky. It is well known that, because of their comparatively low carbon monoxide content, these fumes are much less lethal than those from petrol engines. The leading(More)
