A 12 year old patient was treated for Sturge-Weber syndrome with choroidal haemangioma and total exsudative retinal detachment. The diagnosis was supported by echography and thin-layer computed tomography. Because of the exsudative retinal detachment photocoagulation could not be performed. Treatment by percutaneous radiotherapy with Caesium 137 was(More)
Between January 1987 and August 1990, a total of 20 keratoplasties were performed in infants and children in the University Eye Hospital, Düsseldorf, accounting for 4% of all keratoplasties during this period. The indications included malformations of the anterior segment and central corneal opacities, mostly of herpetic or microbial etiology. The ages of(More)
Microsurgical control of astigmatism after perforating keratoplasty has widely remained an unsolved problem in spite of many sophisticated suggestions and inventions. The frequent irregularity in the recipient cornea and poor predictability with respect to wound healing are the major obstacles. If spectacles or contact lenses cannot provide useful vision,(More)
For the first time, a report is given on the percutaneous radiotherapy of hemangiomas of the choroid which could not be treated by photocoagulation. Diagnosis and control examinations of these tumors were performed by ophthalmoscopy, fluorescence angiography, and ultrasonography. Ten eyes (nine patients, three out of them with Sturge-Weber's disease) were(More)

Perfluorodecalin is a clear colourless fluid with high specific gravity. It is immiscible with gas, blood, water, or any other fluid used in vitrectomy. The low viscosity permits easy injection and removal with microsurgical equipment. The high weight displaces subretinal fluid anteriorly through retinal breaks back into the vitreous space. Posterior(More)
Thin-layer computed tomography of the orbit together with contrast representation by computed tomography in form of circulation studies is the only non-invasive method to represent intraocular hemangiomatous tumors hidden under an exsudative detachment of the retina. This method allows to establish exact tumor parameters which are necessary for an efficient(More)
A 26-year-old female with severe complications from type I diabetes mellitus of 17 years' duration (proliferative retinopathy, nephropathy with renal failure and nephrotic syndrome) developed rapid deterioration of vision in the right eye to 6/60 over a period of several weeks. There were no other neurological signs. Ophthalmological examination showed no(More)
A bone marrow transplantation was performed in a 17-year-old male patient suffering from acute undifferentiated leukemia. The patient received Cyclosporin A--a powerful immunosuppressive agent--to prevent a severe, chronic graft-versus-host disease. While undergoing this therapy the patient suffered a loss of visual acuity in both eyes 17 months after bone(More)
