PURPOSE To describe complications and visual outcome of photocoagulation for clinically significant macular oedema. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Evaluation of macular oedema and complications of photocoagulation in 194 eyes, defined as subretinal fibrosis, atrophic creep of the pigment epithelium and subretinal neovascularization was based on stereo fundus photo(More)
Purpose: To study the retinal function, using multifocal electroretinography (mfERG), in diabetic patients with mild and moderate retinopathy, and in diabetics without clinically apparent retinopathy. Methods: Thirty-one patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, eleven without any clinically apparent retinopathy, twelve with mild retinopathy and(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the visual outcome and self-reported vision-targeted health status in patients treated with intravitreal ranibizumab for wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS A total of 51 eyes from 50 patients aged 76 ± 7 years, with wet AMD not previously treated, were included in this prospective(More)
AIMS To study associations between diabetic retinopathy and development of stroke, myocardial infarction and death in type 2 diabetic patients. METHODS During a 10-year observation period, 363 type 2 diabetic patients (diagnosis > or =30 years of age) attending an outpatient clinic were studied regarding the prevalence and incidence of retinopathy and(More)
Purpose: To examine macular function and its correlation to macular thickness before and after panretinal photocoagulation for proliferative retinopathy in diabetic patients. Methods: Ten diabetic patients (aged 57 ± 10 years, diabetes duration 21 ± 10 years) treated with panretinal photocoagulation outside the great vascular arcade underwent multifocal(More)
The objective of this study was to describe incidence and progression of diabetic retinopathy in relation to medical risk indicators as well as visual acuity outcome after a continuous follow-up period of 10 years in a Type 1 diabetic population treated under routine care. The incidence and progression of retinopathy and their association to HbA(1c), blood(More)
In a previous study, we showed that diabetic patients exhibited significantly increased concentrations of total plasma homocysteine (tHcy), but not until the onset of nephropathy. It was suggested that the hyperhomocysteinaemia might contribute to the accelerated atherosclerotic process in diabetic patients. In the present study, we have analysed the main(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the influence of pregnancy on deterioration of retinopathy in patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. Sixty-five pregnant Type 1 diabetic women attending the University Hospital in Lund were studied retrospectively. The degree of retinopathy, and levels of HbA1c and blood pressure 12 months before, during, and 6(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the early alterations of retinal function, assessed with electrophysiology, in newly onset type 2 diabetes patients without vascular retinopathy. Seventeen patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes (duration 7 ± 3 months), without any vascular retinopathy in fundus photographs, were examined with full-field(More)
AIMS To study the occurrence of heart disease and death in Type 1 diabetic patients and evaluate whether presence of microangiopathy, i.e. nephropathy and retinopathy, was associated with the outcome. METHODS A 12-year observation study of 462 Type 1 diabetic patients without a previous history of heart disease at baseline who were treated under routine(More)
