AIM To analyse the extent of bony orbital volume reduction after enucleation in humans. METHODS Volumetric studies on bony orbital volumes based on three dimensional reconstructions acquired from high resolution computed tomograph (CT) scans were performed in 29 patients with acquired anophthalmia and four patients before enucleation (controls). Eight(More)
PURPOSE There is no consensus as how to calculate orbital soft tissue volume based on CT or MRI scans. The authors sought to validate their technique and to assess the intraobserver and interobserver variability of their calculations of bony orbital volume (OV), orbital fat volume (FV), and extraocular muscle volume (MV) on CT scans of humans. METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS External dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is a reliable but difficult surgical technique for the treatment of any obstruction of the lacrimal drainage system lying distal to the internal opening of the common canaliculus. In this prospective study, a simplified external DCR procedure and the results obtained on a series of 45 consecutive(More)

BACKGROUND Graves' orbitopathy (GO) is an autoimmune condition, which is associated with poor clinical outcomes including impaired quality of life and socio-economic status. Current evidence suggests that the incidence of GO in Europe may be declining, however data on the prevalence of this disease are sparse. Several clinical variants of GO exist,(More)
