PURPOSE We determined whether combining low dose bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) interferon-alpha 2B would be effective for patients in whom previous BCG failed. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 40 patients in whom 1 (19) or more (21) previous induction courses of BCG failed received 6 to 8 weekly treatments of 1/3 dose (27 mg.) BCG plus 50 million units(More)
Human cadaver eyes were studied by corrosion casting technique. Batson's mixture No. 17 (methyl methacrylate) was injected through a sclerotomy into the suprachoroidal space. Following polymerisation of the injected mixture the surrounding tissue was dissolved with 10% natrium hydroxide. Macroscopic and scanning electron microscopic findings in casts of the(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of photopic full-field electroretinography (ERG) and retinal thickness measurements by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in the assessment of disease severity in type 1 diabetic retinopathy. A population-based cohort of 151 patients with type 1 diabetes underwent a complete ophthalmic(More)
PURPOSE To examine the incidence, the preoperative findings and the surgical outcome of patients presenting with simultaneous, bilateral retinal detachment. METHODS A retrospective analysis of the medical records of patients undergoing surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment between 1990 and 1998. RESULTS During this period a total of 827(More)
PURPOSE To study the incidence, clinical findings, and tumour characteristics of posterior uveal melanoma in Western Norway, and to report the results of a consistent treatment strategy (I-125 brachytherapy or primary enucleation) over a 13-year period. METHODS The clinical records of all patients with posterior uveal melanoma referred between January(More)
PURPOSE To visualize the suprachoroidal space and to study the morphology of possible uveoscleral drainage routes in the human eye. METHODS Indian ink stained gelatine was injected directly into the suprachoroidal space of 7 human donor eyes. Those quadrants where gelatine appeared in the episcleral venous network were cut in their entirety in consecutive(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether shortening the duration of face-down positioning from 1 week to 3 days affects the anatomical success rate of macular hole surgery. METHODS A total of 53 consecutive eyes in 50 patients with full thickness macular holes of 2-24 months' (average 10 months) duration were included in the study. In 20 eyes (37.7%) the hole had(More)
A 26-year-old man with juvenile glaucoma developed persisting hypotonic retinopathy after trabeculotomy ab externo. An unintended cyclodialysis cleft at the site of the trabeculotomy was suspected, but visualization of the chamber angle was impossible due to a shallow anterior chamber. Seven months after the trabeculotomy the patient was treated with(More)
PURPOSE To compare the influences of static and repeated accommodation on the intraocular pressure (IOP). MATERIALS AND METHODS A randomized, single-blind study was carried out on 33 healthy volunteers aged 20 to 29 years. Baseline IOP was measured after 10 minutes of viewing a distant target. Static accommodation was achieved by letting the volunteers(More)
