PURPOSE To evaluate the beneficial effects of triamcinolone-assisted vitrectomy during management of retained nuclei with phacofragmentation. SETTING Dokuz Eylul University, Medical Faculty, Ophthalmology Department, and Retina Eye Center, Izmir, Turkey. METHODS Twelve eyes of 12 patients were operated on between January 2002 and September 2003. Eleven(More)
The aim of this study was to document the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of cases with a history of severe neonatal indirect hyperbilirubinemia. Ten cases (eight cases with neurologic findings, two normal cases) with a history of severe neonatal indirect hyperbilirubinemia were studied. Neurologic findings and MRI results were described and(More)
Microincisional cataract surgery is a safe procedure with a very short learning period for an experienced cataract surgeon and rollable ultrathin intraocular lenses eliminate the need for enlargement of corneal incision. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of cataract surgery through a corneal microincision and implantation of(More)
PURPOSE To compare visual performance of the refractive Array SA40N and the diffractive CeeOn 811E multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) and to evaluate the potential benefits of combining both multifocal IOLs in the same patient. METHODS Two groups of cataract patients were unilaterally implanted with either the CeeOn diffractive (n = 10) or the Array(More)
PURPOSE Topical anesthesia is increasingly being used for cataract surgery. However, it is believed that topical anesthesia causes an increased risk of intraoperative complications from unrestricted eye movement and insufficient pain control and more need for sedation. It is difficult to compare pain and anxiety experienced by individual patients;(More)
We present the case of a 28-yr-old woman with Fontan anastomosis undergoing elective sterilization. Because of concerns about laparoscopic surgery with capnoperitoneum and positive-pressure ventilation, a mini-laparotomy was performed in microcatheter spinal anaesthesia. Tiration of small doses of plain bupivacaine 0.5% supplemented with 5 microg sufentanil(More)
The aim of this study was to present the pitfalls in the diagnosis of complicated pulmonary hydatid disease and to discuss the unusual radiological presentations of this endemic disorder in Turkey. We retrospectively evaluated 34 patients (12 females) aged between 8 and 64 years, who were operated on at our centre between 1991 and 1998 and diagnosed with(More)
This article presents a patient with portal hypertension in whom an unusual localization for portosystemic collaterals have incidentally been found. Upper abdominal sonography revealed tubular structures filling the whole perirenal and partially the perihepatic area, and their venous nature was demonstrated with duplex Doppler sonography. Spiral CT(More)
PURPOSE To determine the neodymium:YAG (Nd:YAG) laser energy threshold to fracture the haptic of various currently marketed intraocular lenses. SETTING Dokuz Eylul University, Ophthalmology Department, Izmir, Turkey. METHODS Four haptic materials-poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), hydrophobic acrylic, hydrophilic acrylic, and polyvinylidene fluoride-were(More)
