PURPOSE To evaluate the functional treatment response 3 months and 12 months after monthly ranibizumab in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (NAMD). METHODS Twenty-six eyes showing treatment-naïve NAMD were examined with the Heidelberg Spectralis OCT (SD-OCT) and the Nidek MP-1 microperimeter (MP) at baseline, after 3 months, and after 12 months… (More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To characterise the extension and progression of alteration of neurosensory layers following acute and chronic branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) in vivo using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. METHODS In this observational case series, eight eyes with acute BRAO and nine eyes with chronic BRAO were analysed using a… (More)
PURPOSE To investigate the reproducibility of automated lesion size detection in patients with geographic atrophy (GA) using polarization-sensitive spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) and to compare findings with scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO), fundus autofluorescence (FAF), and intensity-based spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT). METHODS… (More)
AIM Currently, the border of idiopathic epiretinal membranes (iERM) is outlined intraoperatively using vital dyes. Therefore, the authors set out to investigate the role of the preoperative retinal thickness map (RTM) of the optical coherence tomography (OCT) in identifying the shape and the size of the iERMs. METHODS 15 eyes of 15 patients with iERM who… (More)
PURPOSE To compare current imaging methods with respect to their ability to detect the condition of the fovea in patients with geographic atrophy (GA). METHODS The retinas of 176 eyes with GA were imaged using two spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) systems, Cirrus HD-OCT and Spectralis HRA+OCT, and fundus autofluorescence (FAF) and… (More)
A 28-year-old female presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with a chief complaint of strings protruding from her vagina. The patient also complained of recurrent symptoms of cystitis and occasional hematuria over the past five months without resolution after treatment. The patient underwent ED evaluation and was noted to have strings coated in calculus… (More)
We report the case of a 77-year-old patient who presented a postural and kinetic tremor of the upper and lower limbs of sub acute onset, which revealed a vitamin B12 deficiency and resolved rapidly after the treatment. Such a presentation is rare.
