Fifty-five patients with Down's syndrome were examined to evaluate the characteristics and frequency of ocular findings. Of these patients, 29 (52.7%) were hypermetropes, 7 (12.7%) were emmetropes, and 7 (12.7%) were myopes; astigmatism of more than 3.00 diopters was present in 7(12.7%) patients. Strabismus was observed in 12 (21.8%) patients. All but one(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate the long-term effects of various anterior capsulotomies and radial tears on intraocular lens (IOL) centration. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-five eyes of 87 senile cataract patients operated with extracapsular technique were evaluated in IOL tilt and decentration with a new method of measurement. According to the type(More)
The authors report a rare consequence of an anteriorly migrated encircling silicone band. The extruded encircling band, which "cheesewired" forward through the superior and medical rectus insertions straddled the cornea firmly and formed a corneal groove. Corneal groove is an extremely rare complication of scleral buckling surgery.
PURPOSE To assess the blood flow changes in eyes with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) and compare these values with values of fellow eyes and eyes of normal subjects. METHODS 25 eyes of 25 consecutive newly diagnosed patients with CRVO comprised the study group. Their fellow eyes and those of 25 healthy subjects were the control group. All patients(More)
We compared the vitreous and plasma levels of proinflammatory cytokines in diabetic patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy. Levels of proinflammatory cytokines in the vitreous were higher in the diabetic patients than the non-diabetics while the levels of plasma cytokines were similar. It is thought that this increase in the vitreous is effective in(More)
As small astrocytic hamartomas can sometimes be missed during routine ophthalmoscopy in patients with tuberous sclerosis, fluorescein and/-or indocyanine green angiography maybe more helpful in identifying such small astrocytomas. In fluorescein angiography, astrocytomas show gradually increasing hyperfluorescence due to the vascular permeability of(More)
In-111 pentetreotide has been recommended for the detection of somatostatin receptor (SSR) positive tumors. Sites with increased numbers of activated lymphocytes may also show In-111 pentetreotide with Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO) compared to various other orbital disorders. Five patients with GO, three patients with necrotizing scleritis, and two patients(More)
Thallium-201 uptake patterns in the orbits are not widely known. Diffuse, bilateral orbital localization of TI-201 chloride may be an incidental finding because of orbital muscle or other soft tissue uptake. Differences in orbital blood flow and soft tissue mass may be the cause of the varying uptake intensities in most cases. Focal uptakes, even when(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate clinical characteristics, surgical aspects, and visual outcomes of pediatric patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil injection for complicated retinal detachment. PATIENTS AND METHODS The records of 24 patients (25 eyes) younger than 18 years were retrospectively reviewed. All patients underwent pars plana(More)
