Binding of carbohydrate moieties was detected in tissue sections of human breast by employing two types of labeled ligands: neoglycoproteins (chemically glycosylated, histochemically inert carrier protein) and desialylated naturally occurring glycoproteins. Paraffin-embedded, formalin-fixed sections from 40 benign and malignant breast lesions were examined(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the regeneration of corneal nerves after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) versus laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in vivo with a confocal videomicroscope. In all, 15 eyes that had undergone PRK and 15 eyes that had been subjected to LASIK were compared with a confocal in vivo slit-scanning video-microscope. The(More)
AIMS To investigate the clinical course of vitrectomized patients with recurrent diabetic vitreous hemorrhage who were treated by revitrectomy with silicone oil (SO) as a hemostyptic tamponade. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifteen patients with recurrent vitreous hemorrhage due to proliferative diabetic vitreoretinopathy were included in this retrospective study.(More)
The aim of the present investigation was to study the clinical course of eyes presenting with retinal redetachment after silicone-oil removal (SOR), with special regard being paid to the long-term visual outcome. Between October 1989 and September 1994, SOR was performed on a consecutive series of 262 eyes that had previously undergone vitrectomy combined(More)
The aim of the present study was to study corneal nerve regeneration after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in vivo by means of a confocal videomicroscope. A total of 25 myopic eyes of 16 patients were examined biomicroscopically and with the confocal microscope (Microphthal, Hund Company, Wetzlar, Germany) before and after PRK. The mean age of the(More)
PATIENT A 29-year-old white female presented with an episode of recurrent focal toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis in her right eye. Apart from a white active lesion between the temporal vascular arcades, marked vitreous opacification was present. Treatment with oral pyrimethamine and sulfadiazine led to resolution of retinochoroiditis activity including(More)
In proliferative diabetic retinopathy the indication of early vitrectomy remains controversial. At present, no decision rule exists for the assessment of the various factors predicting the postoperative visual outcome. We reviewed 75 vitrectomies in 68 diabetics from our clinic. All vitrectomies were done by one surgeon. In all cases, vitrectomy was(More)
A 52-year-old man who presented with a large ciliochoroidal malignant melanoma was treated by application of a 106Ru plaque. At 8 days after removal of the plaque, severe panophthalmitis with rapidly progressive scleral necrosis at the site of the tumor made enucleation inevitable because of impending perforation of the globe. Microscopic examination(More)
