OBJECTIVES Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) may represent a transition to early Alzheimer's disease (AD). The retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) is composed of axons originating in retinal ganglion cells that eventually form the optic nerves. Previous studies have shown that degenerative changes occur in optic nerve fibers and manifested as thinning of RNFL in(More)
BACKGROUND Acute, as opposed to chronic, anterior uveitis is rarely associated with macular or optic nerve edema. Nevertheless, mild changes may not be visible on examination. OBJECTIVE To implement non-invasive ocular coherence tomography (OCT) for obtaining quantitative and qualitative data in the assessment of changes in macular morphology and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To determine whether adjunctive use of mitomycin C (MMC) would increase the success rate of primary nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy with collagen implant. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-six patients (26 eyes) with primary open-angle glaucoma uncontrolled with maximally tolerated medical therapy were randomly assigned to undergo(More)
To determine the impact of anemia before and during chemoradiation in patients with cervical cancer, we collected data on hemoglobin (Hb) levels before and during treatment from 60 unselected patients with cervical carcinoma. All patients had FIGO stage IB to IVA disease and were treated with concurrent chemoradiation for the aim of cure. Patients with an(More)
We explored the association between septicemia and specific retinal lesions in a prospective controlled study. Hemorrhages, cotton-wool spots, or Roth's spots were found in 24 of 101 septicemic patients (24%), compared to four of 99 age- and gender-matched control patients (4%) (P = .0002). There was no significant association between types of organisms or(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of oral nifedipine on ocular blood flow in patients with low tension glaucoma (LTG). METHODS In this prospective study we examined the effects of 3 weeks of treatment with oral nifedipine 30 mg/day in 11 patients with LTG, by using colour Doppler ultrasound imaging to measure haemodynamic variables in the central retinal(More)
Objective. To compare pre- and postoperative characteristics and surgical success rates of patients with and without previous episodes of dacryocystitis, who underwent external dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) for nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO). Methods. The medical files of all patients who underwent external DCR between 2006 and 2011 in our institution(More)
Phenylephrine hydrochloride is a sympathomimetic drug. In ophthalmic practice, 2.5% and 10% concentrations of phenylephrine eye drops are used as mydriatic agents. Solutions containing 0.125 % phenylephrine are used as conjunctival decongestants. Acute blepharoconjunctivitis with mucopurulent discharge due to phenylephrine eye drops has been reported(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the combined grey-scale ultrasonography (US) and colour Doppler imaging (CDI) as the first and primary imaging modalities in diagnosing paediatric orbital haemangiomas. METHODS The charts of 20 consecutive children with a periorbital mass echographically diagnosed as a haemangioma between January 2004 and June 2009 in the Tel-Aviv(More)
A 27-year-old previously healthy man presented with intractable headache, right hemiparesis, a right facial palsy and bilateral papilloedema. CT of the brain disclosed an isodense lesion showing contrast enhancement (Fig.i). It lay medial to the left lentiform nucleus and was surrounded by oedema, distorting the ventricles. Further CT studies during the(More)
