PURPOSE To determine the incidence of vitreous loss in patients undergoing cataract surgery and the visual outcome in a tertiary teaching hospital. METHODS Hospital records of 2095 consecutive patients undergoing cataract surgery between July 1999 and June 2000 were reviewed in this non-concurrent cohort study. Incidence and visual outcome of vitreous(More)
The effect of BCG on the risk of leprosy was measured using a case-control design in an area endemic for the disease. In this study, 397 newly diagnosed cases and 669 controls matched for age, sex and locality were selected from a defined population. Information on exposure to BCG, contact with another case of leprosy, and relevant socioeconomic variables(More)
AIMS To compare the Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph (HRT 2) parameters in patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) in an Indian population. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two groups of patients were recruited: group I comprised 78 eyes (78 patients) with POAG and group II 58 eyes (58 patients) with PACG. Based on(More)
India has a large burden of blindness and population-based screening is a strategy commonly employed to detect disease and prevent morbidity. However, not all diseases are amenable to screening. This communication examines the issue of "population-based screening" versus "case detection" in the Indian scenario. Using the example of glaucoma, it demonstrates(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare results of filtration combined with either phacoemulsification or the Blumenthal technique of manual small-incision cataract surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records of glaucoma "triple" operations from March 1997 to May 2000 were reviewed. Seventy-eight eyes (70 patients) that underwent phaco-triple were compared with 86 eyes (80(More)
BACKGROUND Ophthalmic practice utilizes numerous diagnostic tests, some of which are used to screen for disease. Interpretation of test results and many clinical management issues are actually problems in inverse probability that can be solved using Bayes' theorem. DESIGN Use two-by-two tables to understand Bayes' theorem and apply it to clinical(More)
Information on 14,625 non-lepromatous patients released from treatment after dapsone monotherapy and followed up to a maximum of 15 years at the ILEP project. Dharmapuri, India, was analysed to study the pattern of relapses. The overall relapse rate was 5/1000 person years. Males had a higher relapse rate than females. The risk of relapse increased with(More)
