OBJECTIVE To describe peripapillary detachment in pathologic myopia (PDPM), a newly recognized fundus lesion. DESIGN Retrospective medical record review. METHODS We evaluated a series of myopic eyes that had a yellow-orange elevation of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium at the inferior border of the myopic conus. RESULTS Twenty eyes of 15(More)
July 1, 1997 was stipulated as the day for estimating the prevalence of multiple sclerosis within the city of São Paulo. The patients were identified via various sources, including associated universities and magnetic resonance services of the city of São Paulo.

AIMS To evaluate the safety of up to 3 years of pegaptanib sodium therapy in the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (NV-AMD). METHODS Two concurrent, prospective, multicentre, double-masked studies randomised subjects with all angiographic lesion compositions of NV-AMD to receive intravitreous pegaptanib sodium (0.3, 1 and 3 mg) or(More)
Pegaptanib sodium (Macugen) is a selective RNA aptamer that inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) 165 , the VEGF isoform primarily responsible for pathologic ocular neovascularization and vascular permeability, while sparing the physiological isoform VEGF 121 . After more than 10 years in development and preclinical study, pegaptanib was shown(More)
We noted that the adjustable fixation device present on some models of the Goldmann-Weekers dark adaptometer has a calibration error that results in a consistent and predictable overestimation of retinal eccentricity. The error occurs because the eye being tested is not in the geometric center of the projection sphere. The true retinal locus may be computed(More)
