We tested 47 eyes in 47 patients (ten normal subjects, 15 with suspected glaucoma, and 22 with glaucoma) with the Pickford-Nicholson anomaloscope to assess the retinal nerve fiber layer and measure color vision. The 47 subjects were randomly selected from a group of 132 for whom Farnsworth-Munsell 100-hue color error scores were known. The yellow-blue and(More)
PURPOSE To describe the pathologic findings in an unusual case of giant cell arteritis that presented initially with visual loss and rapidly culminated in myocardial infarction. CASE REPORT After the death of the patient, a complete autopsy was performed, including bilateral enucleation. All specimens, including a temporal artery biopsy completed before(More)
Mean survival of 110.5 months (9 yr. 2.5 months) for spinal cord-injured persons who died between 1963 to 1976 compared favorable with the figure of 52.8 months (4 yr, 4.8 months) calculated in 1955 by Dietrick and Russi [1]. If suicides were not considered, then mean longevity for the deceased patients would be 126 months (10 yr, 6 months). The leading(More)
We measured a number of structural characteristics of the optic nerve head and retina in 52 glaucoma suspects, 51 glaucoma patients, and 28 normal eyes. In all of the patients, a number of psychophysical functions were recorded and evoked cortical potentials and pattern electroretinography were obtained. The correlations between these structural and(More)
AIMS To assess whether the use of the femoral or radial approach for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) interacted with the efficacy and safety of cangrelor, an intravenous P2Y12 inhibitor, in CHAMPION PHOENIX. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 11 145 patients were randomly assigned in a double-dummy, double-blind manner either to a cangrelor bolus and(More)
Fifty-one patients with early glaucoma and 29 patients without the disease had their contrast sensitivity, colour vision, differential light threshold, neuroretinal rim area, retinal nerve fibre layer, pattern-reversal electrogram and visually evoked potential examined. A stepwise discriminant analysis found that the combination of the vertical cup disc(More)
BACKGROUND Plantar Heel Pain Syndrome (PHPS) describes centralised plantar heel pain and tenderness. It can account for up to 15% of referrals to clinicians involved in the treatment of foot pain. OBJECTIVE To compare tibial nerve block, local infiltration with steroid or both combined in the treatment of PHPS. METHODS Patients with PHPS were randomly(More)
