OBJECTIVE To determine whether systemic minocycline can protect photoreceptors in experimental retinal detachment (RD). METHODS Retinal detachment was induced in mice by subretinal injection of sodium hyaluronate, 1.4%. In 1 experiment, mice received daily injections of minocycline (group 1) or saline (group 2). In a second experiment, mice were treated(More)
The aim of this study is to elucidate the association of neovascularization in branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) combined with major arterial insufficiency (MAI), compared with BRVO alone. The authors retrospectively reviewed the charts, color photographs, and fluorescein angiograms of 304 patients (308 eyes) who had BRVO from 1990 to 2002 at Hanyang(More)
PURPOSE We describe surgical outcomes in a single-surgeon, consecutive series of patients who received scleral buckle placement for primary retinal detachment using a modified external needle drainage technique. METHODS Eighty-two eyes of 80 patients with primary retinal detachment underwent scleral buckle placement with modified external needle drainage.(More)
PURPOSE We describe our successful experience using a capsular tension ring (CTR) and iris repair during cataract surgery in a patient with bilateral coloboma. METHODS A 67-year-old woman had no history of trauma, but had zonular deficiency and inferonasal iris defects in both eyes. An extracapsular cataract extraction and intraocular lens (IOL) scleral(More)
We describe a technique for knotting a suture to the haptic of a dislocated intraocular lens (IOL) through a sclerotomy site without removing an IOL in 4 patients. The suture was knotted to the haptic from outside the sclera. The remaining suture material was tied together and buried in the sclerotomy site. To prove that we could suture to the haptic(More)
