Aberrant innervations of oculomotor muscles are a special group of clinical entities, the common sign of which is an abnormal innervation of the oculomotor muscles with nerve fibres which originally were not meant for this purpose. The majority of these anomalies develops during the embryonic period of lesions at the level of nuclei of cranial nerves or(More)
PURPOSE To compare corneal structures in buphthalmic eyes and healthy eyes in patients with unilateral congenital glaucoma using a corneal confocal microscope. METHODS Ten patients with unilateral buphthalmos (mean ± SD age, 14.85 ± 5.12 years) were examined using corneal confocal microscopy. The cell density and cell area of endothelial cells and(More)
The authors evaluated in a retrospective study the results of surgery in 28 patients with paralysis of the VIth cranial nerve. The standard surgical procedure which was selected as primary achieved orhtophoria in 21 patients. In 7 patients with persisting esotropia and diplopia transposition of the oculomotor nerves according to Hummelshein was indicated.(More)
In a clinical study the authors evaluate efficiency of the operation on oculomotoric muscles by the hang-back retroposition method. A total of 70 children have been operated on, 52 of the patients suffering from esotropia and 18 from exotropia. The mean preoperation deviation in esotropia was 30 +/- 12 pdpt, the postoperation deviation was in the range of 6(More)
The goal of this clinical trial was to evaluate outcomes of the treatment of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) located in zone 1 (Zone 1 ROP). This disease has a specific clinical appearance and poor prognosis. Usually it is difficult to identify particular stages of ROP and to indicate treatment while following progression of the disease. In the group of(More)
The authors draw attention to possible extraocular changes in children with congenital aniridia. Of 31 investigated patients they were found in 5 children. Among these changes, because of its serious character, Wilms tumour holds the first place; it was found by the authors in two children. To ensure its early detection, the authors emphasize the necessity(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the use of in vivo corneal confocal microscopy to reveal the reason for persistent disturbance of vision after a corneal abrasion. CASE REPORT A 49-year-old man presented with a decrease in visual acuity and monocular diplopia after a traumatic corneal abrasion. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography was not beneficial. In(More)
The authors evaluated retrospectively the examination protocols of 208 children (400 eyes) treated by cryocoagulation on account of active retinopathy of premature infants (ROP). The objective was to assess the optimal timing for the onset of examination to record in time the threshold stages of ROP in children with different grades of maturity. The(More)
