Modern thin-client systems are designed to provide the same graphical interfaces and applications available on traditional desktop computers while centralizing administration and allowing more efficient use of computing resources. Despite the rapidly increasing popularity of these client-server systems, there are few reliable analyses of their performance.(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the epidemiology and prognostic factors related to visual outcome after open globe injuries. METHODS A retrospective case review during a 14-year period. RESULTS The study was based on a sample of 321 patients (321 eyes) with open globe injuries. Gender of the sample was predominantly male (76.6%) and the average age was 38.8 years.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate correlations between preoperative and postoperative foveal microstructures in patients with macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). METHODS We reviewed the records of 31 eyes from 31 patients with macula-off RRD who had undergone successful re-attachment surgery. We analyzed data obtained from complete ophthalmologic(More)
To investigate laser photocoagulation and intravitreal bevacizumab efficacy and safety in patients with moderate-to-severe stage 3 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), and to evaluate the effects of treatment on the development of peripheral retinal vessels. A retrospective chart review of 15 premature babies, all of whom were diagnosed with stage 3 ROP, was(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To compare the safety and effectiveness of 25-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) with conventional 20-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for the treatment of vitreoretinal complications in patients with diabetic retinopathy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-five eyes of 44 consecutive patients with diabetes mellitus who(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate whether intravitreal ranibizumab injection at cataract surgery prevents postoperative diabetic macular edema (PME) in patients with stable diabetic retinopathy without significant macular edema. METHODS Eighty patients with cataract, stable diabetic retinopathy, and no significant macular edema were randomized to a sham group (cataract(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the association of angiogenic and inflammatory cytokine levels in the aqueous humor with development of retinal ischemia and recurrent macular edema in retinal vein occlusion (RVO) patients. METHODS This was a retrospective cross-sectional study, and patients with RVO (n = 41) and age-matched control subjects (n = 25) were included.(More)
PURPOSE In this study, the beneficial effects of the oral administration of ethanol extract of Diospyros kaki (EEDK) were tested on a mouse dry eye model induced by benzalkonium chloride (BAC). METHODS A solution of 0.2% BAC was administered topically to mouse eyes for 14 days, twice daily, to induce dry eye. Various concentrations of EEDK were(More)
PURPOSE To describe the incidence, risk factors for, and long-term visual outcomes of recurrent submacular hemorrhage in the context of age-related macular degeneration. METHODS Medical records of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration with or without polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy showing submacular hemorrhage at their first visit(More)
