PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term prognosis of visual function in patients with orbital cavernomas after conservative and surgical treatment. DESIGN Interventional case series. METHODS The authors describe the outcome of 20 patients with cavernous hemangiomas of the orbit treated in their departments between 1988 and 2003. This prospective study(More)
PURPOSE To describe a patient with unilateral ptosis caused by localized amyloid deposits of immunoglobulin lambda-light chains (A-lambda-amyloid) in the levator palpebrae muscle. STUDY DESIGN Case report and literature review. PARTICIPANT A 32-year-old otherwise healthy female with right-sided unilateral ptosis. METHODS The patient presented with(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal age for surgery for infantile esotropia is controversial. Proponents of early surgery believe that further loss of binocular vision can be prevented by early surgery, a minority believes that binocular vision can even be restored by early surgery. The ELISSS compared early with late surgery in a prospective, controlled,(More)
INTRODUCTION In recent years a new perforated PDS (poly-p-dioxanon) foil (0.15 mm) has become available and has not yet been proven to be successful in reconstruction of the orbital floor after blow-out-fractures in randomized studies. The main aim of this clinical trial is to compare this new PDS foil with titanium dynamic mesh (0.3 mm) (TD), which is well(More)
PURPOSE To compare the surgical results in patients with congenital superior oblique palsy treated with inferior oblique recession (IOR) versus those treated additionally with superior oblique tendon tuck (IOR+SOT). METHODS A consecutive, nonrandomized series of patients with congenital superior oblique palsy with vertical deviations in adduction between(More)
Endoscopic and video-endoscopic visual acuity and color discrimination were investigated using a standard disk for testing visual acuity and a color discrimination test. A 1-chip-CCD-Camera (CCC) or 3-chip-CCD-Camera plus digital image processing (digivideo) on the endoscope and a 15 inch high resolution video monitor were used. Color discrimination was(More)
PURPOSE To elucidate the aetiology of congenital Brown syndrome. METHODS Four consecutive patients diagnosed with unilateral congenital Brown syndrome had a comprehensive standardized ocular motility examination. Any compensatory head posture was measured. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with regard for the IV cranial nerve (CN) was performed in(More)
Intraoperative continuous-registration length and tension curves of attached and detached eye muscles were made in 18 strabismic patients under general anesthesia. For relaxed eye muscles, we found an exponential relation between length and tension. An increased stiffness was quantified in Duane's syndrome, Graves' disease, orbital-floor fracture, and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the diagnostic occlusion test (OT) according to Marlow in strabismus sursoadductorius (StS; also known as 'unilateral superior oblique palsy') and its implications for surgical treatment. METHODS In 67 cases of StS, angles of strabismus were measured before and after patching the affected eye for three days. Horizontal, vertical and(More)
Die Kontrastempfindlichkeit (KE) ist eine wesentliche Sehfunktion. Sie kann aus optischen (Aberrationen, Streuung, Beugung) oder neuralen Gründen (z. B. bei Glaukom oder Neuritis nervi optici) herabgesetzt sein. In der klinischen Praxis spielt die Prüfung der KE bei Verlaufskontrollen, Gutachten, Fahrtauglichkeitsprüfungen und Einstellungsuntersuchungen(More)
