PURPOSE To evaluate the capability of the optic disc, peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (P-RNFL), macular inner retinal layer (M-IRL) parameters, and their combination obtained by Fourier-domain optical coherent tomography (OCT) in differentiating a glaucoma suspect from perimetric glaucoma. METHODS Two hundred and twenty eyes from 220 patients were(More)
BACKGROUND The study aims to correlate Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) with Goldmann visual field (GVF) to show the photoreceptor (PR) structure and function relationship in the first described case of cancer-associated retinopathy (CAR) from Merkel cell carcinoma. FINDINGS A case study of a patient with CAR who was imaged with serial(More)
PURPOSE To compare optic disc measurements between the new Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (RTVue-100) and the confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (Heidelberg retinal tomography, HRT-II) in clinical practice. METHODS Patients seen from the glaucoma service of an academic department of ophthalmology between August 2008 to August 2009 with(More)
PURPOSE To compare optic disc parameters when using manual disc detection versus automated software on RTVue-100 Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography. METHODS Nonrandomized comparative study using images obtained from a tertiary-care Glaucoma Clinic from August, 2008 to May, 2009. Four hundred thirty-four patients with mean age of 67.1 years(More)
AIM To test the hypothesis that histamine 3 receptor (H3R) activation during Helicobacter infection inhibits gastric acid secretion in vivo and in vitro. METHODS Helicobacter felis (H. felis) infected and uninfected C57Bl/6 mice were infused with either PBS or the H3 receptor antagonist thioperamide (THIO) for 12 wk. After treatment, mice were analyzed(More)
A case of infectious crystalline keratopathy that affects mainly the posterior stroma is presented. Crystalline infiltrates presented after multiple epithelial defects and chronic topical steroid use following a penetrating keratoplasty in this patient. His epithelial defects persisted and given the deep location of the crystalline infiltrates, a(More)
