BACKGROUND Intravitreal injection of triamcinolone has been advocated to treat exudative macular diseases such as macular edema and choroidal neovascularization. OBJECTIVE To describe 7 patients who developed a clinical picture simulating endophthalmitis after intravitreal triamcinolone injection. METHODS Intravitreal triamcinolone injections were(More)
Many real world systems and applications require information management components that provide support for managing imprecise data. There have thus been several proposals for extending relational database systems in order to represent as well as query such imprecise data. Little work, however, has been done in modeling uncertainty at the conceptual schema(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the visual outcomes, choroidal neovascular complex status, and adverse events in patients with visually significant cataract and neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) who had cataract surgery. SETTING Private practices, Beverly Hills, California, and New London, Connecticut, USA. DESIGN Case series. METHODS Data were(More)
PURPOSE To report the six-month results of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization that had been treated with combined therapy of high-dose intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (HDIVTA), photodynamic therapy (PDT), and pegaptanib sodium injection. DESIGN Retrospective, interventional case series study. METHODS Medical files of 16 patients with this(More)
A multi-level hierarchical control system has been designed and is being applied to chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) process control. The current implementation of the control system incorporates closed-loop run-to-run (R2R) control and open-loop real-time monitoring and can accommodate inter-cell control. The R2R control element is enabled via a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether the combination of simultaneous hyperthermia by transpupillary thermotherapy and indocyanine green-based photodynamic therapy is an effective treatment for small and medium choroidal melanomas. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-five patients with small and medium choroidal melanomas were treated with combined(More)
Abstract: Whenever the fabrication process consists of several steps and the dynamic modification of individual steps or step sequences of the process is allowed, multi-step feedback and feed-forward control can be utilized to improve the quality of the fabrication process. Feedback and feed-forward control have been identified as important features of the(More)
Abstract: Whenever the fabrication process consists of several steps and the dynamic modification of individual steps or step sequences of the process is allowed, inter-cell feedback and feedforward control can both be utilized to improve the quality of the fabrication process. Indeed, feedback and feed-forward control have been identified as important(More)
