Dobutamine stress echocardiography has increasingly been used to assess patients for coronary artery disease. Despite the popularity of this test, the optimal dose of dobutamine has not been established. The objective of this study was to assess the accuracy of dobutamine stress echocardiography at various infusion doses and its utility as a predictor of(More)
UNLABELLED Noncontact tonometer (NCT) is an applanation tonometry, as is Goldmann tonometry. Numerous studies have shown the reliability of this technique but problems still exist. METHOD We measured intraocular pressure (IOP) in 340 patients (668 eyes) with NCT and Goldmann tonometer (GAT). To evaluate the influence of central corneal thickness (CCT), we(More)
UNLABELLED Malignant glaucoma remains one of the most dramatic complications of ocular surgery. It can occur after glaucoma surgery but also after iridotomy, capsulotomy, or cataract extraction. However, the mechanisms remain unclear. PURPOSE to evaluate diode laser cyclodestruction as a complementary treatment in refractory malignant glaucoma. PATIENTS(More)
Six hundred one consecutive patients undergoing reperfusion within 6 hours of acute myocardial infarction were studied with regard to impact of previous coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) on direct coronary angioplasty performance and results. Forty-nine patients (8%) had previously undergone CABG, whereas 552 (92%) had not. Direct angioplasty was used(More)
PURPOSE To understand risk factors for failure of glaucoma filtering surgery. PATIENTS A retrospective study of 67 eyes (16 nonpenetrating trabeculectomies, 51 trabeculectomies [31 with 5FU and 20 with mitomycin]) of 61 patients in whom 5FU bleb revision was needed because of increasing intraocular pressure. Postoperative incidents were analyzed to(More)
Heidelberg Retina Tomography (HRT) analysis of the optic nerve might be temporarily modified after glaucoma surgery. However, optimal follow-up of glaucoma patients requires comparing reliable optic nerve images. The aim of this study was to define the consequences of glaucoma surgery on HRT measurements. Results showed temporary modifications until at(More)
CASE REPORT We report the case of a 58-year-old man who presented at our emergency department with ocular pain and progressive loss of vision in his left eye. Ophthalmic examination detected a pigmented mass in the iridocorneal angle, involving the ciliary body. Glaucoma had also developed secondary to the melanotic lesion. Ophthalmoscopy showed a large(More)
