PURPOSE To determine the prevalence of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) in Japanese patients presumed to have age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and compare 1-year outcomes after photodynamic therapy between PCV and choroidal neovascularization secondary to AMD. DESIGN Prospective interventional study. PARTICIPANTS Ninety-three consecutive(More)
AIMS The aim of the study was to assess the short-term efficacy of intravitreal injections of bevacizumab for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS Intravitreal bevacizumab (1 mg) was injected into 11 eyes of 11 patients with PCV in this retrospective, interventional case series. The main outcome measure was the change in the polypoidal vessels(More)
PURPOSE To compare the anatomic and visual outcomes achieved by scleral buckling and primary vitrectomy for the repair of macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. METHODS The records were reviewed for a consecutive series of 167 patients (167 eyes) who were initially treated with scleral buckling or pars plana vitrectomy for primary macula-off(More)
We have developed a new quantitative method to determine protein concentration and number of cells in the aqueous in vivo. The principal instruments in the system were a He-Ne laser and a detection system for measuring scattered light intensity. The power of the He-Ne laser was 25 microW and the focused beam diameter was 20 microns. The laser beam was(More)
AIM To assess the efficacy and safety of an intravitreal injection of bevacizumab (Avastin(R)) for myopic choroidal neovascularisation (mCNV). METHODS Intravitreal bevacizumab (1 mg) was injected into eight eyes of eight patients with mCNV in this non-randomised, interventional case series. The best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was measured and the(More)
AIMS To clarify vascular changes of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) after photodynamic therapy (PDT). METHODS Thirty-one eyes underwent PDT with verteporfin and were followed every 3 months with indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) using confocal scanning ophthalmoscope and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for over 15 months and the findings(More)
PURPOSE To assess the potential effect of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) (Avastin) on retinal function and anatomic recovery in eyes with choroidal neovascularization attributable to pathological myopia (mCNV). DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS setting: Institutional. patient population: Sixty-three eyes of 63 patients were treated with IVB for(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate morphologic alterations around fluorescein leakage sites using Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD OCT) in acute central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). DESIGN Observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-one eyes with acute CSC with subjective symptoms for under 3 months. METHODS Patients underwent measurement(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with or without intravitreal bevacizumab injection for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. DESIGN Retrospective, comparative, interventional case series. METHODS We included 146 eyes of 146 patients with treatment-naïve polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy including the subfoveal region treated(More)
PURPOSE To report the results of three methods of foveal translocation in the presence of subfoveal choroidal neovascular membrane resulting from age-related macular degeneration. METHODS We treated 51 eyes of 51 consecutive patients with subfoveal choroidal neovascular membranes resulting from age-related macular degeneration with one of three techniques(More)
