OBJECTIVE We present the largest reported cohort of carotid cavernous aneurysms (CCA), comparing the neuro-ophthalmic presentation, complications, and outcome with and without endovascular treatment. METHODS Retrospective review of 185 patients with 206 CCAs examined between 1980 and 2001 at a tertiary neuro-ophthalmology and neurovascular service.(More)
OBJECTIVE Guglielmi detachable coil treatment is becoming an accepted alternative to microsurgical clipping for select intracerebral aneurysms. Resolution of oculomotor nerve paresis (ONP) after endovascular packing was claimed to be complete in two prior series, with three and six cases. We describe the evolution of ONP after Guglielmi detachable coil(More)
BACKGROUND Glucocorticoid (GC) therapy has been shown to prevent Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO) progression following radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment. However, the optimal regimen is controversial, with studies from recent years suggesting the use of lower doses and shorter GC treatment courses. METHODS We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis(More)
PURPOSE To describe the natural history of intraocular hemorrhages related to subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) as a result of ruptured intracranial aneurysms. METHODS Retrospective review of patients with cerebral aneurysms examined by a referral neuro-ophthalmology service between 1980 and 1998. Patients with intraocular hemorrhages associated with SAH as a(More)
OBJECTIVE To provide evidence that venous congestion and drainage patterns are responsible for the manifestations of cavernous sinus area dural arteriovenous malformations (CSdAVMs). DESIGN Retrospective observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Records of 85 patients with complete clinical and angiographic evaluations of CSdAVMs were evaluated for the(More)
BACKGROUND Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO) is a common cause of morbidity in patients with Graves' disease. Optimal treatment of GO remains unclear, and an evidence-based approach may improve patients' outcome. METHODS A systematic review and metaanalysis of randomized, controlled trials comparing treatment modalities for GO vs. placebo, no intervention, or(More)
OBJECTIVE Recurrent-relapsing inflammatory optic neuropathy, including chronic relapsing inflammatory and autoimmune optic neuropathies, is rare, but can cause severe visual loss. Long-term steroids may preserve vision, yet side effects are frequent. We describe our experience with intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIg). DESIGN A semi-prospective case series(More)
PURPOSE An animal model study was conducted to compare the efficacy of recurrent topical applications of hyaluronic acid and gentamicin ointment for the treatment of noninfected, mechanical corneal erosions. METHODS An artificial, controlled wound of identical size and depth was inflicted to the corneas of three groups of rabbit eyes in order to measure(More)
Mutations in retinal-specific guanylate cyclase (Gucy2d) are associated with Leber congenital amaurosis-1 (LCA1). Zebrafish offer unique advantages relative to rodents, including their excellent color vision, precocious retinal development, robust visual testing strategies, low cost, relatively easy transgenesis and shortened experimental times. In this(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the displacement of retinal blood vessels during the natural course of epiretinal membrane (ERM) formation. DESIGN Consecutive observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Thirteen patients (13 eyes) diagnosed with unilateral idiopathic ERM and 10 normal fellow eyes of the same patients served as a control group and constituted the(More)
