Ten patients with the wet form of age-related macular degeneration (9 female and 1 male) with a mean age of 74.7 years (58-85 years) at(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the function of the blood aqueous barrier(BAB) in the eyes with silicone oil emulsification (SOE). METHODS Protein concentrations, expressed in albumin equivalents,were determined in aqueous humor of the eyes with SOE in 11 consecutive patients by means of proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) spectroscopy. Correlations with(More)
P"rpse: To investigate the clinical and histological toxicity of the exposure of the :rabbit cornea1 endothelium to anterior chamber injection of liposome-encapsulated 5-fluorouridine (LS-FUR) at concentrations of 1 mg/ml and 0.38 mg/ml and intravitreal injection of I.5FUR at 1 mg/ml. M*thOdS : A total of 12 New Zealand white rabbits were divided in three(More)
Purpose: To evaluate the use of a new gel material TEGMA as potential vixoelastic material and substitute of the aqueous humour. Methods: After perihmbal incision 40% TEGMA was injected into the anterior chamber of 12 rabbits. The eyes were enucleated, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 months, and 3 months after the operation. The cornea1 endothellum was examined with(More)
A unique case of a larva migrans lentis in a 33-year-old female is presented. The intraocular larval (obviously Toxocara) affection was characterized in the first phase by the development of a peripheral chorioretinal granuloma and in the second phase by the finding of larva migrans in the lens.
