The Retinal Society classification on proliferative vitreoretinopathy of 1983 has been updated to accommodate major progress in understanding of this disease. There are three grades describing increasing severity of the disease. Posterior and anterior location of the proliferations have been emphasized.

Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous cancer and the second leading cause of death from cancer in men in most western countries. Advanced prostate cancer is typically sensitive to androgen-deprivation therapy, but invariably progresses to the castration-resistant state. Most current prostate cancer treatments are based on cytotoxicity directed(More)
An explicit method for the numerical simulation of optical integrated circuits by means of the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method is presented. This method, based on an explicit solution of Maxwell's equations, is well established in microwave technology. Although the simulation areas are small, we verified the behavior of three interesting(More)
Thirty-six pars plana vitrectomies were performed on 30 eyes of 17 patients with biopsy-proven vitreous amyloidosis. Reopacification of the retrolental vitreous was the most common reason for vitrectomy revision, required in 24% of patients. Complications of amyloid or vitrectomy included retinal detachment requiring scleral buckling in 17% of eyes and(More)
