The alternatives in the management of infantile glaucoma refractory to conventional treatment are quite limited and unrewarding. We did a retrospective study of 49 patients (53 eyes) under 12 years of age with advanced, uncontrolled glaucoma who each underwent implantation of a single-plate Molteno implant in one stage. Over the follow-up period ranging(More)
Three patients developed flat anterior chamber and were ultimately diagnosed as having aqueous misdirection after trabeculectomy with extracapsular cataract extraction and posterior chamber lens implantation (glaucoma triple procedure). A fourth patient developed aqueous misdirection after posterior chamber lens implantation only (without trabeculectomy).(More)
During the period March 1983-May 1987, 74 cases of retinoblastoma were evaluated at the King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 60% of the cases were unilateral with a female preponderance of 59.4% noted for this series. Additionally, the mean age at diagnosis was 22 months, and delay of retinoblastoma diagnosis since the first symptoms(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether current telemedicine technology can support real-time surgical telementoring to remove an orbital tumor. DESIGN Interventional case report METHODS An orbital specialist guided a general ophthalmologist in the removal of a lateral orbital tumor from a site 210 miles away on another island. A 3-mm endoscope connected to a(More)
A survey of all hospitals in the city of Riyadh for retinoblastoma cases presenting during the period 1982-1986 was performed; 22 cases (16 females and six males) were identified. The cumulative live births in the city of Riyadh for the same period numbered 254,780. The authors report the cumulative incidence of retinoblastomas in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as(More)
PURPOSE Malignancy can be associated with high levels of catabolic products. We performed a two-part study. Part 1 measured levels of uric acid and xanthine in the aqueous humor of eyes with malignant and nonmalignant diagnoses. Part 2 measured the levels of uric acid in tears of retinoblastoma patients. If compounds in high concentrations inside the eye(More)
Goniotomy and trabeculotomy are two widely accepted modalities of treatment for primary congenital/infantile glaucoma. Both procedures may be associated with complications. We treated 10 patients with bilateral, symmetrical congenital/infantile glaucoma and clear corneas. One eye of each patient underwent surgical goniotomy under general anesthesia, and the(More)
Retinoblastoma is the most common intraocular malignancy of childhood, yet over all it is relatively rare, affecting 1 in 78,000 to 30,000 live births. The prognosis for life is 92 percent if the tumor is detected early; however, greater than 95 percent mortality is documented for cases with advanced presentation. This paper discusses incidence, diagnosis,(More)
