Fifty-two patients with zygomatic fractures were examined clinically and roentgenologically 1 to 4 years after treatment. Of these patients, 15 were treated with wiring fixation, 26 with antral packing using plastic tubing, and 11 with reduction only, without fixation. In the last group, the hospital stay was the shortest. These patients had also less(More)
Thirty nine patients (7 females, 32 males) with central serous retinopathy (CSR) have been followed up for 1.6-17.0 years (mean 9.6 +/- 4.2). Eleven eyes had laser therapy, 7 during the initial attack, 4 at the time of the recurrent CSR. In the initial fluorescein angiograms pigment epithelial (PE) changes other than the leaking point were observed in 21(More)
In the search for new risk factors for diabetic macroangiopathy the insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism in the angiotensin-converting enzyme gene was studied in 237 consecutive patients (125 men and 112 women) with non-insulin-dependent diabetes. The female population showed an excess of ischemic electro-cardiographic changes or definite myocardial(More)
The contrast sensitivity of 21 patients was measured using TV equipment (Wavetek 143 function generator and Sony PVM90CE video monitor) and the Vistech test 6–15 years after the acute stage of central serous retinopathy. In the majority of cases contrast sensitivity was lower in the affected eye. The difference between the affected and the fellow eye was(More)
To evaluate the role of pars plana vitrectomy in the management of intraocular inflammation with dense vitreous opacification, vitrectomy was performed in 14 patients with chronic uveitis, 6 eyes with retinal periphlebitis, and in 8 cases of endophthalmitis. Visual acuity improved in 21 eyes, remained unchanged in 3, and deteriorated in 4 cases (follow-up(More)
