PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of the location of the corneoscleral tunnel incision as well as preoperative and intraoperative parameters on total and localized endothelial cell loss. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Humboldt-University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany. METHODS Fifty consecutive patients scheduled for routine cataract surgery were(More)
We assessed high-resolution MRI of the lacrimal system with conjunctival contrast enhancement in patients with suspected stenosis. We studied 18 patients with epiphora affecting 22 eyes, using a surface coil, before and after conjunctival and intravenous Gd-DTPA. Stenosis or obstruction of the ducts was found in 18 of 22 cases: at canalicular level in 3(More)
BACKGROUND Severe decentration and subluxation of intraocular lenses (IOLs) may lead to double vision, glare and deterioration of vision to the point of functional aphakia. The purpose of the present study was to analyse causes for severe IOL dislocation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between January 1989 and January 1996, 37 patients required IOL exchange because(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate prospectively a diffractive (811E, Pharmacia; power add +4.0 D) versus a refractive (PA154N, Allergan; power add +3.5 D) designed multifocal lens. PARTICIPANTS Eighty patients planned for cataract surgery without additional ocular pathologies were randomized into the diffractive or refractive group, respectively. INTERVENTION A(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate endothelial cell loss after phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation using peribulbar anesthesia or topical anesthesia combined with intracameral unpreserved lidocaine 1%. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Charité, Humboldt-University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany. METHODS Before and 20 months +/- 5.1(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of intracameral lidocaine in cataract surgery compared to peribulbar anesthesia. DESIGN A prospective, randomized, controlled study. PARTICIPANTS A total of 200 consecutive cataract patients (200 eyes) participated. INTERVENTION Eyes were randomly assigned to two groups: one group received 0.15 ml(More)
INTRODUCTION Corneal endothelial involvement can be found in pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX). Evaluation of possible differences in endothelial cell loss following cataract extraction was compared to normal eyes. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a controlled clinical study we prospectively studied 20 patients with PEX and compared them with an age-matched control(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize possible differences in endothelial cell changes after cataract surgery in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PSX). METHODS In this prospective, age-matched, controlled clinical study, 25 consecutive patients with PSX and 25 control patients with senile cataracts only were studied. All patients were treated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if intentionally making a radial incision could lead to a lasting decrease in intraocular pressure and the development of filtering blebs. METHODS Forty-three eyes treated with combined filtering surgery were compared with a control group of 42 eyes treated with cataract surgery (phacoemulsification) alone. All of the patients had(More)
BACKGROUND Since it's first description in 1974 by Kristensen and Norn numerous substances have been reported as potential causes for drug-induced pseudopemphigoid. The signs and symptoms are as severe as with ocular cicatricial pemphigoid. It seems to be most important for the visual outcome for how long the inducing drug was applied and how soon it has(More)
