PURPOSE To analyze the results of intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction by diode laser contact cyclophotocoagulation ("cyclodiode") in cases of advanced glaucoma refractory to alternative treatments. METHODS Two hundred and ten eyes of 195 patients, ages 1 to 89 years (mean, 51 years) were followed for 3 to 30 months (mean, 10 months) after cyclodiode(More)
Corneal graft survival in rabbits was significantly (P less than 0 . 001) prolonged by topical treatment to the recipient eye with cyclosporin A 1% in arachis oil applied five times daily for 4 weeks. No graft was rejected whilst treatment was maintained but all grafts subsequently underwent rejection by the 64th postoperative day. All animals in a(More)
Graft survival in a previously reported cohort of patients recruited between 1967 and 1978 (10.6 years' mean follow-up) was reviewed and compared with that for a cohort recruited between 1979 and 1987 (3.8 years' mean follow-up). This allowed analysis of improved graft survival due to changes in management, introduced after critical review of the first(More)
A series of 20 patients who developed severe post-keratoplasty glaucoma unresponsive to medical therapy and trabeculecetomy were treated using silicone drainage tubing and an anterior encircling gutter. The results indicate a four year probability of maintaining vision and normal intraocular pressure (less than 21 mmHg) of 0.68. In contrast, an earlier(More)
The clinical and histological features of congenital hereditary corneal oedema in 23 patients are presented. The series includes cases of both recessive and dominant inheritance. Although the condition is present at birth or in early childhood, visual development appears to be little impaired, if at all. Penetrating keratoplasty carries a relatively good(More)
This study includes the fourteen Icelanders who had penetrating keratoplasty for macular corneal dystrophy during 1974 through 1988, and a further five patients whose deterioration of vision has so far not led to surgery. The clinical presentation, mode of inheritance and the course of the disease were similar to those seen in other studies. The(More)
One hundred thirty-two penetrating keratoplasties (91 patients) for herpetic keratoplasty were reviewed retrospectively. The overall survival rate of clear keratoplasties to two years was 64% and to five years was 62%. The significant prognostic factors were preoperative ocular inflammatory status and degree of corneal vascularization. The two-year survival(More)
