The clinical courses of 41 patients who received timolol maleate for experimental protocols were reviewed. We reevaluated the conditions of 17 patients with the elevated pressures of primary open angle glaucoma who had received timolol alone or in combination with other glaucoma medications for a maximum of 35 months (average, 26 months). Withdrawal of(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective multicentric study. OBJECTIVE To present the preliminary results of an innovative method for standardized correction of scoliosis, vertebral coplanar alignment (VCA), based on a novel concept: the relocation of vertebral axis in a single plane. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Normal standing spine has no rotation in coronal or(More)
Three pH-sensitive fluorescent indicators (fluorescein, bis-carboxyethyl-carboxyfluorescein and pyranine) were studied to determine their usefulness as probes for the living cornea and anterior chamber. Of the three dyes, pyranine had properties which render it almost ideally suited for this purpose. Adequate concentrations are reached in the cornea and(More)
Two hundred ninety-six eyes of 250 patients undergoing extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) with or without the implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC-IOL) were studied. Pre-existing glaucoma of varying severity was present in 139 eyes and no known ocular pathology other than cataract in 157 eyes. During the first eight weeks following(More)
The trabecular meshwork in 334 eyes of 260 patients with medically uncontrolled primary and secondary open-angle glaucoma was treated with the argon laser. The average intraocular pressure reduction obtained was 7.1 mm Hg. Tonographic data showed significant increase in the facility of outflow. Glaucoma surgical intervention was avoided in 87.5% of phakic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the recurrence rate and long-term survival of patients treated with open cervical procedures. DESIGN The study is a retrospective analysis of a cohort of patients who underwent an open laryngeal procedure between 1976 and 1986. The median follow-up was 6.6 years. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS The sample was a(More)
A case of malignant (ciliary block) glaucoma apparently induced by a large posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC-IOL) is presented. The involved eye was small, with an axial length of 21.7 mm and a preoperative refractive error of +8.25 D. An uncomplicated extracapsular cataract extraction with implantation of a PC-IOL with a 7 mm optic was performed.(More)
Twenty-six cases of pupillary and iridovitreal block in pseudophakic eyes are reported. Although ten patients presented with acute angle closure glaucoma, the majority were asymptomatic and had normal intraocular pressures. While cure was finally achieved in all cases, recurrence of block occurred in six eyes as late as two months after initial successful(More)
One hundred twenty-eight consecutive aphakic glaucomatous eyes of 91 patients were examined by fluorescein angiography. Macular edema was present in 16 (28%) of 56 eyes currently being treated with epinephrine and 9 (13%) of 72 eyes not currently being treated with epinephrine. This difference is statistically significant at the 95% confidence level.(More)
