PURPOSE To analyse and quantitatively compare the outcomes of microincisional cataract surgery (CCMIC) with those of conventional phacoemulsification, evaluating the induced astigmatism, endothelial cell count, corneal thickness and foveal thickness in the pre- and postoperative period. METHODS Prospective and randomised study, including 74 eyes of 37(More)
We report the case of a 63-year-old woman with Takayasu's arteritis who experienced progressive visual loss in her right eye (RE) over several months. Visual acuity was 0.4 in the RE, which showed marked retinal arteriovenous dilation and highly irregular arteriolar calibre. She had no light perception in the left eye, which showed diffuse atrophy of the(More)
PURPOSE To assess the long-term efficacy and safety of infliximab therapy for the treatment of Behçet's disease patients with ocular involvement who failed to respond or did not tolerate conventional treatment. METHODS Retrospective study of 12 patients treated with infliximab at a starting dose of 5 mg/kg. RESULTS Infliximab was infused during a mean(More)
BACKGROUND Large-scale genetic studies have reported several loci associated with specific disorders involving uveitis. Our aim was to identify genetic risk factors that might predispose to uveitis per se, independent of the clinical diagnosis, by performing a dense genotyping of immune-related loci. METHODS 613 cases and 3693 unaffected controls from(More)
This study was undertaken to investigate the possible genetic association of functional CTLA4 polymorphisms with susceptibility to non-anterior uveitis. Four hundred and seventeen patients with endogenous non-anterior uveitis and 1517 healthy controls of Spanish Caucasian origin were genotyped for the CTLA4 polymorphisms rs733618, rs5742909 and rs231775,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS A pathogenic role of Th17 cells in uveitis has become clear in recent years. Therefore, in the present study, we aimed to evaluate the possible influence of the IL17A locus on susceptibility to non-anterior uveitis and its main clinical subgroups. METHODS Five IL17A polymorphisms (rs4711998, rs8193036, rs3819024, rs2275913 and rs7747909),(More)
Viscosurgery is a surgical procedure based on the injection of viscoelastic material between the retinal surface and the fibrovascular tissue in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), with the aim of separating these structures to facilitate their dissection. We describe a modified viscosurgical technique in which the viscoelastic material is combined(More)
CASE REPORT A 68 year-old male with idiopathic choroidal polypoidal vasculopathy received seven intravitreal injections of bevacizumab in the supero-nasal quadrant. He later developed a localized limbal stem cell deficiency which required limbal transplantation from the same eye. Two months after surgery, a slight improvement of visual acuity was noted,(More)
