CONTEXT Recommendations for management of jaundice in newborns presume thatjaundice is a reliable clinical finding and that the pattern and intensity of jaundice reflects the degree of elevation of the serum bilirubin level. OBJECTIVES To determine whether experienced observers agree in describing the extent of jaundice and to evaluate the reliability of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate results of macular pucker surgery with and without internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. DESIGN Retrospective noncomparative interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Forty-four consecutive patients underwent pars plana vitrectomy to remove an idiopathic macular pucker by two surgeons from June 1999 to July 2000. (More)
OBJECTIVE To report the anatomic and visual results of primary pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) without scleral buckling to repair primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachments in pseudophakic eyes. DESIGN Nonrandomized, prospective, comparative clinical trial. PARTICIPANTS Two hundred eighty-three consecutive patients (294 eyes) with pseudophakia, peripheral(More)
The authors report their experience in managing 14 cases of siderosis bulbi secondary to a retained iron-containing intraocular foreign body (IOFB). The IOFB was removed in 12 of the 14 eyes. The IOFB was removed with a sclerotomy and external magnet (5 eyes), a pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and intraocular forceps (5 eyes), a PPV and intraocular magnet (1(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective is to compare the effectiveness of retrobulbar and posterior sub-Tenon's injection of corticosteroids for treatment of post-cataract cystoid macular edema that was refractory to topical medications. DESIGN A retrospective study was performed. PARTICIPANTS A total of 48 patients (49 eyes) with post-cataract cystoid macular edema(More)
Histopathologic examination of eight cynomolgus monkey eyes and one human eye revealed that both argon and krypton laser photocoagulation cause adhesion between the neurosensory retina and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) within 24 hours of treatment. The neurosensory retina remained attached at the sites of laser burns despite surrounding retinal(More)
We examined a family with fenestrated sheen macular dystrophy. The red macular lesions were strikingly apparent in the propositus and more subtle in one affected cousin. Pronounced macular retinal pigment epithelial disruption or mottling was present in the father of the propositus, who also had markedly reduced electroretinogram rod and cone responses. The(More)
The association of choroidal detachment with malignant choroidal tumors is not well recognized. The authors' experience with six cases suggests that choroidal detachment may be associated with both metastatic tumors and choroidal melanoma. In two of these cases, the choroidal or retinal detachment was so massive that echography was necessary to detect the(More)
