PURPOSE To investigate whether different crush durations or a different fluorogold (FG) injection timing can affect the efficiency of FG retrograde labeling of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in the optic nerve (ON) crush model. METHODS We performed the ON crush in rats with a clip at different durations or a jewel forceps to compare the effects of(More)
The purpose of present study is to dissect the role of PI3K/AKT signaling in the anti-apoptotic effects of human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) on rat retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) after optic nerve (ON) crush. The ONs of seventy-two adult male Wistar rats were crushed by a standardized method. Control eyes received a sham operation. G-CSF or(More)
BACKGROUND Epidemic viral conjunctivitis is a highly contagious eye disease that occurs worldwide and is caused mainly by adenoviruses and enteroviruses. An 18-year analysis of the changes of pathogens and clinical signs in a subtropical and densely populated island presents certain special features. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical(More)
With the increased use of central venous catheters in cancer patients, there has been an increase in the recovery of environmental and skin organisms from blood cultures. A red yeast, Rhodotorula, an infrequent cause of infection in humans, was isolated from a patient with acute myeloblastic leukemia undergoing bone marrow transplant while he received(More)
and mortality associated with vitreoretinal and ocular oncologic surgery performed under general anesthesia. Periocular and paranasal injections of hyaluronic acid are increasingly common because it is purported to be a safe material for cosmetic implantation. Because of the multiple anas-tomoses between the vascular supply of the face and orbit, the(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to explore the prevalence and the associated factors of visual impairment and blindness among the elderly Taiwanese population. METHODS A nationwide population-based visual health care screening program of elderly people aged 65 years or older was conducted between 1 July 2002 and 31 December 2002 in Taiwan. Based on the(More)
AIM To report a patient with diabetic rubeosis who suffered from acute retinal ischemic change and stroke after intravitreal injection of bevacizumab. METHODS A 55-year-old man had diabetes with unilateral rubeosis and macular edema. Three days after receiving intravitreal injection of bevacizumab (1.25 mg in 0.1 ml), he developed acute vision loss and(More)
We report a patient who developed a complete left homonymous hemianopia from mass effect of a solitary skull metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). After chemoembolization and resection, the visual field defect improved markedly. This is the first reported case demonstrating this phenomenon in HCC. It supports aggressive treatment of a solitary skull(More)
Epidemic viral conjunctivitis is a highly contagious disease that is encountered year-round. The causative agents are mainly adenoviruses and enteroviruses. It occurs most commonly upon infection with subgroup D adenoviruses of types 8, 19, or 37. For common corneal involvement of human adenovirus type 8 epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, full-layer epithelial(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence of and risk factors associated with major ocular diseases in the elderly Amis population of Taiwan. METHODS This population-based cross-sectional study is the most current survey of ocular diseases among elderly Amis. The overall response rate was 61.2%, with 2316 participants screened. All ocular examinations were(More)
