PURPOSE To evaluate the changes in blood pressure and intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with and without hypertension after intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin) injection. METHODS This study examined 135 (74 nonhypertensive vs. 61 hypertensive) consecutive patients treated with an intravitreal injection of 1.25 mg bevacizumab for retinal vascular(More)
PURPOSE To review and evaluate the effects of intravitreal bevacizumab injection (IVB) in centralserous chorioretinopathy (CSC) by meta-analysis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Clinical controlled studies that evaluated the effect of IVB in CSC were identified through systematic searches of Embase, PubMed, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials.(More)
PURPOSE To study the effect of botulinum toxin type A chemodenervation in sensory strabismus. METHODS Twelve patients with sensory strabismus were treated with an injection of botulinum toxin type A (Botox; Allergan, Irvine, Calif). Botulinum toxin type A was diluted with 0.9% sodium chloride without preservative at a dose that ranged from 1.25-5 U. A(More)
Waardenburg syndrome (WS) is a rare, autosomal dominant disorder characterized by sensorineural hearing loss, pigmentary disturbances of the skin, hair, and iris, and other developmental defects such as lateral displacement of both medial canthi and lacrimal puncta called dystopia canthorum. While mutations of the PAX3 (paired box) gene have been identified(More)
The authors present the clinical findings of a 30-year-old female and a 29-year-old male who both had isolated unilateral lateral rectus muscle palsy in neuro-Behcet's disease. The clinical feature related to isolated abduscens nerve palsy was identified by CT, systemic assessment and extraocular examination. These patients' constellation of findings appear(More)
PURPOSE To compare the topographic features of eyes treated with photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for myopia using two different excimer lasers. METHODS A total of 65 eyes in 39 patients treated with PRK (6.0-mm optical zone) using Technolas 217C and VISX S4 excimer lasers were evaluated retrospectively to determine the size of the topographic ablation(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between central visual field (VF) defects and ocular pulse amplitude (OPA) in early normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study included 100 eyes of 100 subjects: 54 NTG patients whose mean deviations were better than -7.00 dB and 46 normal subjects. OPA was measured by dynamic(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the surgical effect of modified Kestenbaum surgery and show how to determine the amount of appropriate augmentation for correction of abnormal head posture in infantile nystagmus. METHODS We reviewed the records of 63 patients with infantile nystagmus who required surgery for a significant face turn and who were followed for at least(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the effects of intravitreal injection of bevacizumab (Avastin; Novartis, Basel, Switzerland) on blood pressure (BP) in the context of ocular vascular pathology. METHODS This study retrospectively examined 135 consecutive patients treated with intravitreal injections of 1.25 mg bevacizumab for retinal vascular disease; there were 61(More)
Inverse Duane's retraction syndrome is very uncommon. Congenital cases are even more unusual. A 6-year-old girl with convergent squint along with severe restriction on abduction is described. On attempted abduction, a narrowing of the palpebral fissure, upshoot and retraction of the eyeball were observed. Brain and orbit MRI demonstrated no intracranial or(More)
