PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of the transillumination technique for precisely locating the ciliary sulcus in transscleral fixation of posterior chamber intraocular lenses (PC IOLs) by determining the haptic positions with ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Numune Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey. (More)
The objective was to evaluate the results of Nd:YAG laser goniopuncture after viscocanalostomy and to investigate the rate of penetration in non-penetrating surgery. Results of viscocanalostomy and incidence of goniopuncture were retrospectively investigated in 33 eyes of 33 patients. Success was defined as an intraocular pressure (IOP) below 19 mmHg with(More)
Gyrate atrophy is a rare metabolic disease characterized by hyperornithinemia, typical retinal and choroidal lesions, high myopia with marked astigmatism, early cataract formation, and autosomal recessive inheritance pattern. In this paper, we describe a 12-year-old boy presenting with high myopia and gyrate fundus lesions, in addition to 10-times elevated(More)
Knowledge of the anatomy of the median nerve is important in surgery of the palmar aspect of the hand. The purpose of our study was to investigate the ramification pattern of the thenar branch before entering the thenar fascia and the distribution of the terminal branches in the thenar musculature. The observations were carried out on 144 hands of 74(More)
INTRODUCTION Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is impingement of the median nerve at the wrist. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of tendon and nerve gliding exercises with standard conservative treatment (SCT), which consists of splinting and local steroid injections, in the treatment of CTS. METHODS This study was a prospective,(More)
The branching pattern of the ulnar nerve in the forearm is of great importance in anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve for decompression after neuropathy of cubital tunnel syndrom and malformations resulting from distal end fractures of the humerus. In this study, 37 formalin-fixed forearms were used to demonstrate the muscular branching patterns from(More)
In order to determine the value of quantitative CT of the orbit in patients with Graves' disease, we clinically examined 174 orbits of 87 patients with Graves' disease and evaluated them by CT in respect to the density and size of the extraocular muscles, the globe position and the width of the optic nerve-sheath complex. We also determined the normal(More)
AIMS To evaluate alterations in orbital blood flow parameters and their correlations with extraocular muscle enlargement, proptosis, and intraocular pressure in patients with Graves' disease. METHODS In this multicentre study blood flow parameters in the ophthalmic artery, superior ophthalmic vein, central retinal artery and vein were determined by colour(More)
An unusual case of CMV retinitis and AIDS who developed immune recovery uveitis (IRU) despite a low CD4+ T cell count achieved during HAART is reported. A 36-year-old female complained of blurred vision in both eyes six months after initiation of anti-CMV retinitis therapy and HAART. Ocular examination revealed a substantial intraocular inflammation causing(More)
PURPOSE To compare the results of viscocanalostomy with and without mitomycin-C (MMC). METHODS Retrospective results of 15 standard viscocanalostomy (VCO) operations (Group 1) were compared with the prospective results of 15 VCO operations performed with intraoperative adjunctive MMC (Group 2). MMC (0.2 mg/mL) was applied over and under the superficial(More)
