The incidence of a second primary testicular germ cell cancer among 2850 (96.6% of eligible) men with a histologically verified first primary germ cell cancer diagnosed in the period 1960-1979 in Denmark was established. Of these 2850 men, 73 (2.6%) developed a contralateral testicular cancer. In five of these patients (0.18%), the tumors were synchronous.(More)
Experimental phacoemulsification procedures were performed in 54 Rex rabbits. In 96 eyes, posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs) were implanted in the capsular sac, and 12 eyes served as controls with no lens implantation. The IOLs were divided into eight groups consisting of both one-piece and three-piece styles with various optic designs. Each lens(More)
Clinicopathologic data to assist ophthalmologists in choosing a safe and efficacious anterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) are rapidly becoming available. Two important factors that have led to an increased success rate with some anterior chamber IOL styles are (1) attention to lens design and (2) attention to modern manufacturing and lens finishing(More)
The histopathologic findings of four eyes obtained postmortem with iris-sutured posterior chamber intraocular lenses (PC IOLs) are described. These IOLs were implanted as exchange procedures. In most instances, the loops were not situated in the ciliary sulcus but rather were suspended behind the iris and ciliary body. Therefore, the primary mechanism of(More)
The continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis has rapidly increased in popularity as the procedure of choice when using phacoemulsification for cataract extraction. Only recently, however, have complications of this technique been reported. We review the complications of a continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis and present three cases involving progressive(More)
In a prospective randomized study, 25 New Zealand white rabbit eyes were implanted with four intraocular lens (IOL) designs. These included a one-piece modified J-loop IOL, a three-piece modified J-loop IOL, a rigid disc IOL, and an experimental compressible disc (CD) IOL. The CD IOL revealed the lowest mean posterior capsular opacification (PCO) of all(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate retinal structural and functional abnormalities in a patient with acute macular neuroretinopathy. METHODS An adaptive optics scanning light ophthalmoscope was used to image the photoreceptor mosaic and assess rod and cone structure. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography was used to examine retinal lamination. Microperimetry was(More)
We analysed age and sex-specific trends in the incidence of Hodgkin's lymphoma in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland during 1978-97. The incidence of Hodgkin's lymphoma decreased significantly in all age groups above 40 years; there was a significant increase in incidence among adolescents and young adults. This increase occurred primarily for Hodgkin's(More)
The incidence of a second primary testicular germ cell cancer in the contralateral testicle among 2338 men with a first primary testicular germ cell cancer diagnosed in the years 1960-79 in Denmark was established in this preliminary report. The material represents 83% of the total cohort followed until 31 December 1984. The relative risk for a patient with(More)
A case of pupillary capture of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) is presented. A nonsurgical approach that may help reposition an IOL optic entrapped in a pupillary capture when chemical mydriasis fails is described. Suggestions for a logical progression of nonsurgical procedures to help release optic capture are presented. Possible causes and(More)
