Triamcinolone Acetonide Facilitates Removal of the Epiretinal Membrane and Separation of the Residual Vitreous Cortex in Highly Myopic Eyes with Retinal Detachment due to a Macular Hole
TLDR
Intraoperative visualization of the epiretinal membrane and residual posterior vitreous cortex with triamcinolone acetonide was found to be a useful adjunct to vitrectomy. Expand
Double Visualization Using Triamcinolone Acetonide and Trypan Blue during Stage 3 Macular Hole Surgery
TLDR
Double visualization of the posterior vitreous cortex and ILM using triamcinolone acetonide and trypan blue during vitrectomy may facilitate separation of theory from the retina and removal of the ILM around the macular hole in patients with idiopathic stage 3 macular holes. Expand
Detection of CMV DNA in the Aqueous Humor of AIDS Patients with CMV Retinitis by AMPLICOR CMV Test
TLDR
The AMPLICOR CMV test was found to be a reliable tool for differentiating active and inactive CMV retinitis, and is useful for helping to select the optimal treatment regimen. Expand
Trypan-Blue- and Endoillumination-Assisted Phacoemulsification in Eyes with Vitreous Hemorrhage during Combined Cataract and Vitreous Surgery
TLDR
The described double visualization technique may assist phacoemulsification in selected cases of cataract with vitreous hemorrhage. Expand
An application of ultrasonic tissue characterization to the diagnosis of cataract
TLDR
Based on the experience from tissue characterization applied to other clinical fields, the attenuation characteristics of the lens are expected to change according to the stage of disease and the type of cataract. Expand
Intraocular and Plasma HIV-1 RNA in HIV-infected Patients with CMV Retinitis and HIV-infected Controls
TLDR
Findings point to the risk of percutaneous injury from a sharp instrument used in HIV-infected patients during ophthalmic surgery and possible transmission of HIV during such surgery and to the use of surgical instruments that reduce the likelihood of injury. Expand
Human immunodeficiency virus-related retinal microangiopathy and systemic cytomegalovirus disease association
TLDR
Findings indicate that microangiopathy may be involved in the development of CMV disease in HIV-infected patients, and detection of the presence of HIV-related retinal microangsiopathy is important in the management of HIV patients. Expand
Causes of blindness and the results of cataract surgical intervention in the Micronesian islands: a retrospective study
TLDR
The majority of blind individuals in this study were suffering from operable cataract and good results were obtained withCataract surgery in this region, and further training of local medical staff would significantly improve eye care services in Micronesia. Expand
Detection of CMV in Plasma and Aqueous Humor Specimens from AIDS Patients with CMV Retinitis using the Amplicor CMV test
TLDR
The Amplicor CMV test using aqueous humor specimens seems to be a useful diagnostic test for CMV retinitis and one that is more sensitive than determination of CMV DNA in plasma specimens. Expand
