PURPOSE This study aimed to evaluate the longterm results of phacovitrectomy and foldable intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in eyes with significant cataract and co-existing vitreoretinal diseases. METHODS We carried out a retrospective study of 186 eyes of 149 patients with various vitreoretinal abnormalities and visually significant cataracts.(More)
PURPOSE To assess the success rates and complications of Densiron 68 intraocular tamponade in the management of complicated retinal detachment (RD) with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). METHODS Twenty-one eyes of 20 patients with complicated RD and PVR were included in this prospective study. Vitreoretinal surgery with Densiron 68 intraocular(More)
PURPOSE In an earlier study we found normal adeno-associated viral vector type 2 (AAV2)-mediated GFP expression after intravitreal injection to one eye of normal C57BL/6J mice. However, GFP expression was very poor in the partner eye of the same mouse if this eye received an intravitreal injection of the same vector one month after the initial intravitreal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the outcome, intraoperative and postoperative complications of refractive lens exchange (RLE) by phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implantation combined with simultaneous pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) in the management of high myopia. METHODS This prospective study consisted of 45 eyes of 26 patients with(More)
Introduction: To report by using topical anesthesia for standing phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation for two patients who need cataract extraction but unable to lie flat with marked cervical kyphosis due to long-standing ankylosing spondylitis and chronic uveitis. Methods: Two patients are unable to lie flat respectively during(More)
Dear Editor: Although macular hole formation is a rare complication of uncomplicated phacoemulsification cataract extraction. We report our estimate of the incidence of macular hole-related retinal detachment (MHRD) after phacoemulsification. We review our experience at the Eye Hospital, Wenzhou Medical College, from December 1, 1998 to September 30, 2008.(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the affects of aging and post-translational modifications in vitro on rabbit alpha-crystalline molecular chaperone-like activity. METHODS (1) Rabbits with three different ages (3 days old, 3 months old and 2 years old) were chosen in the study. The water-soluble crystalline in the three age groups was purified by Sephadex G-200 gel(More)
Introduction. To report a case of anterior sclera staphyloma and vitreous hemorrhage occurring over 38 years after bilateral cataract surgery. Methods. A 58-year-old man presented with anterior sclera staphyloma and vitreous hemorrhage in the right eye, after bilateral cataract surgery, over 38 years ago. We performed combined anterior sclera staphylectomy(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of acute primary angle closure that developed in the fellow eye rapidly after facedown position after vitrectomy surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS A 66-year-old female developed acute primary angle closure in the fellow eye approximately 1.5 hours after facedown position after vitrectomy surgery for macular hole. RESULTS The(More)
