We used slit-lamp fluorophotometry to evaluate the influence of various intraocular lens fixation sites on the blood-aqueous barrier in 106 eyes. After an average follow-up period of 1.1 years, eyes with anterior chamber lenses with closed or rectangular loops had a significantly higher concentration of fluorescein than did eyes with other types of implants(More)
Slit-lamp fluorophotometry was used to evaluate the disruption of the blood-aqueous barrier in eyes that underwent posterior chamber lens implantation following phacoemulsification and the consensual reaction of the barrier disruption in the contralateral eyes. Topical indomethacin or placebo was applied to surgically treated eyes to test the effect on the(More)
Foscarnet is an active agent against cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), as well as ganciclovir. We investigated the usefulness of foscarnet in patients who underwent related allogeneic HSCT. Foscarnet was used in 320 patients with a median age of 45 years (range 15-72). The purpose of administration was CMV(More)
By administering fluorescein intravenously to 95 patients we calculated the ratio of fluorescein concentration in the vitreous at the time of its peak level compared with the estimated unbound concentration of fluorescein in the plasma at the same time. We studied 12 normal phakic and 83 aphakic eye approximately two months, one year, and more than two(More)
We conducted a prospective, double-masked, controlled study to determine the effects of indomethacin in preventing the development of cystoid macular edema after retinal detachment surgery. In addition to routine medication, topical indomethacin was applied to 63 eyes (52 with intact lenses and 11 aphakic) and a placebo was applied to 61 eyes (51 with(More)
Orciprenaline sulfate is a beta-adrenoceptor stimulant chemically described as 1-(3,5-dihydroxyphenyl)-1-hydroxy-2-isopropylaminoethane sulfate (Alupent). The drug has broncho-dilating activity and has been developed in numerous countries since 1961. The purpose of these studies was to investigate the teratogenic potential of orciprenaline and its mode of(More)
