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)
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)
BACKGROUND Most cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous malformations (CSdAVM) have a benign clinical course. Those CSdAVM that drain into cortical veins have an increased risk for neurologic complications. OBJECTIVE To find whether a specific clinical sign predicts cortical venous drainage (CVD) in CSdAVM. METHODS The records of 118 patients with CSdAVM(More)
PURPOSE UNC119 proteins are involved in G protein trafficking in mouse retinal photoreceptors and Caenorhabditis elegans olfactory neurons. An Unc119 null allele is associated with cone-rod dystrophy in mouse, but the mechanism leading to disease is not understood. We studied the role of Unc119 paralogs and Arl3l2 in zebrafish vision and retinal(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)
OBJECTIVES To compare the incidence of cardiac and cerebrovascular events following non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) compared to published control data using the Framingham, United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) and the National Vascular Disease Prevention Alliance (NVDPA) data. METHODS A retrospective study of all(More)
BACKGROUND Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is an autoimmune disease that classically manifests as attacks of optic neuritis (ON) and transverse myelitis (TM). The prevalence, course, and severity of NMOSD vary considerably. Few studies report the neuro-ophthalmologic disease course and visual outcome. OBJECTIVE We sought to describe the(More)
BACKGROUND Optic neuritis (ON) in patients with anti-myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG)-IgG antibodies has been associated with a better clinical outcome than anti-aquaporin 4 (AQP4)- IgG ON. Average retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFL) correlates with visual outcome after ON. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to examine whether(More)
