PURPOSE To determine the effect(s) of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), VEGF receptor-2 (VEGFR-2), hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), and HGF receptor (c-Met) polymorphisms on progression/regression of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in premature infants. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study comprised both a prospective analysis and a clinically(More)
AIM To evaluate the long-term results and complications of ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) implantation in refractory glaucoma. METHODS A retrospective review of 13 patients (13 eyes) with refractory glaucoma who underwent AGV implantation and had a minimum follow-up of 18 months was performed. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination and(More)
Purpose: To evaluate the choroidal thickness (CT) in patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) and comparing it with healthy subjects. Material/Methods: Sixty-four eyes of 32 patients with MS (22 women, 10 men, mean age: 37.5 ± 8.21 years) were enrolled in this study. Their choroidal thickness(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study is to evaluate choroidal thickness (CT) in patients with rheumatoid artritis (RA) and the effects of short-term hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatment. METHODS Thirty RA patients (group 1) and 30 normal subjects (group 2) were enrolled in the study. Group 1 was further divided into two subgroups as follows: group 1A (Before(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To investigate the macular perfusion changes in healthy smokers by using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). PATIENTS AND METHODS OCTA measurements were taken for the right eyes of 40 smokers (Group 1) and age- and sex-matched control cases (Group 2). Group 1 underwent OCTA scanning with the XR Avanti AngioVue OCTA(More)
Post-traumatic aniridia combined with aphakia may be seen after globe injury. Aside from esthetic aspects, partial or total loss of the iris tissue may also be related to various degrees of glare and photophobia. Such patients suffer from severe visual impairment secondary to aphakia. Herein we describe a novel surgical technique for the management of an(More)
To investigate the longitudinal changes in refractive errors in preterm children with and without retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in the first 6 years of life. We included 226 preterm children with a gestational age of ≤34 weeks: 222 eyes with no ROP, 73 eyes with mild ROP and 145 eyes with severe ROP. Longitudinal cycloplegic refraction data were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the association between macular hole volume (MHV) and postoperative central macular thickness (CMT) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS Thirty-three eyes of 30 patients with a large full-thickness idiopathic macular hole with or without vitreomacular traction who underwent surgical intervention were(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the frequency of insulin resistance (IR) and its relation with anthropometric measurements in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). MATERIAL AND METHODS Nonobese 82 patients with ADPKD and 58 age matched healthy controls were enrolled into the study. None of participants were diabetic or receiving renal(More)
