According to differences in patient characteristics, surgical performance, or used surgical technological resources, surgical interventions have high variability. No methods for the generation and comparison of statistical ‘mean’ surgical procedures are available. The convenience of these models is to provide increased evidence for clinical, technical, and(More)
IMPORTANCE It is essential to devise strategies that improve graft adhesion after Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) to reduce the rebubbling rate. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of the extent of descemetorhexis on graft adhesion properties after DMEK. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Single-surgeon, retrospective, observational(More)
PURPOSE To psychophysically determine macular pigment optical density (MPOD) employing the heterochromatic modulation photometry (HMP) paradigm by estimating 460 nm absorption at central and peripheral retinal locations. METHODS For the HMP measurements, two lights (B: 460 nm and R: 660 nm) were presented in a test field and were modulated in counterphase(More)
One objective of ophthalmological departments is the optimization of patient treatment services. A strategy for optimization is the identification of individual potential for advanced training of surgeons based on their daily working results. The objective of this feasibility study was the presentation and evaluation of a strategy for the computation of(More)
Purpose: No methods for the generation and comparison of statistical 'mean' surgical patient treatments are available. Such models might be beneficial for the advanced assessment and evaluation of surgical strategies, surgical instruments, devices and assist systems, optimization protocols, and for educational purposes. The availability of 'mean' surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with initially low visual acuity were excluded from the therapy approval studies for retinal vein occlusion. But up to 28 % of patients presenting with central retinal vein occlusion have a baseline BCVA of less than 34 ETDRS letters (0.1). The purpose of our study was to assess visual acuity and central retinal thickness in patients(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of mineralocorticoid-receptor antagonists in comparison to acetazolamide and observation in the treatment of central serous chorioretinopathy. METHODS Retrospective, interventional cohort study on 93 patients with acute or chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (37 patients: acetazolamide group, 20 patients:(More)
