SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Rabin Medical Center, Petah Tiqva, Israel. METHODS In a retrospective noncomparative(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Alterations of the immune system may have a role in thrombogenesis. Artery sites occluded with thrombi apparently release pro-inflammatory cytokines. Non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) results from occlusion of the blood supply to the optic nerve. The aim of this study was to analyse levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the optical and anatomical effects of oral propranolol treatment for infantile periocular capillary haemangioma. METHODS All children diagnosed with infantile capillary haemangioma in 2008-2010 at a tertiary paediatric medical centre underwent comprehensive evaluation, including imaging, by a multidisciplinary team followed by oral(More)
Serum levels of interleukin(IL)-8, IL-6, and (TNF)-alpha were measured in 25 patients during active uveitis and uveitis in remission and compared to age-matched controls. Levels of IL-8 and IL-6 were significantly elevated in patients with active disease and were decreased during remission. IL-8 levels were highest in patients with anterior uveitis, with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in detecting cardiac and thoracic aortic sources of retinal emboli. DESIGN Retrospective observational case series. PARTICIPANTS The study population consisted of 18 patients who were initially seen with retinal artery occlusion (7 central, 11 branch) and underwent TEE as part of(More)
BACKGROUND Perfluorocarbon liquids are used as a vitreous substitute in the operative management of several ophthalmologic conditions. We examined the effects of residual perfluorocarbon droplets in the anterior chamber in patients after retinal detachment surgery. METHODS The study group consisted of seven patients (seven eyes) aged 28-74 years in whom(More)
PURPOSE To describe the role of ultrasound biomicroscopy in the detection and localization of foreign bodies in anterior ocular segment foreign body after trauma. METHODS In a prospective study, ultrasound biomicroscopy was performed in five eyes of five consecutive patients with suspected anterior ocular segment foreign body. RESULTS In all five eyes,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate alterations in the retinal vasculature overlying pigment epithelial detachments (PED) in exudative age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) using indocyanine green and fluorescein angiography. METHODS Forty-one patients (41 eyes) with a clinical diagnosis of exudative ARMD with PED underwent simultaneous fluorescein and indocyanine(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of combined intralesional and sub-Tenon's administration of corticosteroids for the treatment of refractory periocular and orbital capillary haemangioma in a retrospective, non-comparative study. METHODS Seven infants with resistant periorbital and orbital capillary haemangioma who attended our tertiary centre from 2000 to(More)
