We describe a patient with systemic graft-versus-host disease who developed a nonhealing epithelial defect after cataract surgery that healed on cessation of a topical nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) (ketorolac). The patient developed a central corneal perforation in the fellow eye while on a new NSAID formulation (nepafenac) after routine(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Moria M2 single use 130 microkeratome head in consecutive LASIK procedures for correction of myopia and myopic astigmatism. METHODS One hundred eyes of 55 patients underwent LASIK in which the flaps were created with the Moria M2 microkeratome using the single use 130 head and excimer laser ablation was(More)
The anatomy of the lateral arm flap is further elucidated, and the surgical techniques involved in raising the flap are described in detail. The data are derived from studies in 25 cadavers and five clinical cases. The relative merits of this versatile free flap are discussed. Three clinical cases are cited for illustration.
OBJECTIVES To present a case of biopsy proven acanthamoeba keratitis requiring penetrating keratoplasty in a patient with keratoconus whose clinical course was remarkable for its lack of ocular injection and pain. The absence of these key findings may have contributed to a delay in diagnosis and a delay in instituting antiamoebic therapy. METHODS Case(More)
A series of safe, simple and single-staged reconstructions following radical resection of maxillary antral carcinomas with soft tissue involvement is presented. These reconstructions were performed using free triple-folded latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flaps revascularised via the facial vessels. This technique can be safely used in irradiated patients and,(More)
