PURPOSE To evaluate the post-operative outcome of fibrin glue-assisted posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in eyes with deficient capsular support after 1 year. METHODS Eyes operated with fibrin glue-assisted posterior chamber IOL implantation from December 2007 to May 2008 were included. The post-operative best spectacle-corrected(More)
PURPOSE To determine the ability of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect intraocular lens (IOL) tilt evaluation in relation to the limbus. DESIGN Observational case series. METHODS The IOL position of 123 eyes of 92 patients was examined with anterior segment OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA). All eyes underwent(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) are mesenchymal neoplasms originating in the gastrointestinal tract, usually in the stomach or the small intestine, and rarely elsewhere in the abdomen. The malignant potential of GISTs is variable ranging from small lesions with a benign behaviour to fatal sarcomas. The majority of the tumours stain positively for(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of intrastromal injection of voriconazole in the management of deep recalcitrant fungal keratitis. DESIGN Interventional case series. METHODS SETTING Cornea services at a tertiary care teaching hospital. PATIENTS Three eyes of three patients with deep stromal recalcitrant fungal keratitis not responding to topical(More)
