PURPOSE To conduct a comparison of the long-term surgical outcomes of bilateral lateral rectus recession (BLR) vs unilateral lateral rectus recession-medial rectus resection (RR) in treatment of intermittent exotropia. DESIGN Nonrandomized, retrospective case series. METHODS Consecutive patients who underwent BLR or RR for treatment of intermittent(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical relevance of myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody (MOG-Ab) in a cohort of adults with inflammatory demyelinating disease (IDD) of the CNS. METHODS Live cell-based assays for MOG-Ab (IgG1 subset) and antibody to aquaporin-4 (AQP4-Ab) were performed in a cohort of 270 adult patients with IDD and 72 controls.(More)
PURPOSE To describe the frequency and clinical characteristics of chorioretinal lesions as a complication of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). METHODS Seventeen patients with CGD examined at Seoul National University Children's Hospital between 1996 and 1999 were recruited for this study. A review of their historical, clinical, and fluorescein(More)
PURPOSE To develop a new foveal hypoplasia grading system using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to determine the correlations of visual acuity to the iris transillumination, macular transparency, and foveal hypoplasia grades, respectively, in young albinism patients. DESIGN Observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Thirteen patients who were(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationship between initial postoperative deviation and long-term results after surgery for intermittent exotropia. METHODS A nonrandomized, retrospective case series. The records of patients who underwent surgery for intermittent exotropia between 2002 and 2006 and had 2 or more years of follow-up were evaluated. Distance(More)
PURPOSE To assess long-term anatomic and visual outcomes and associated complications of lens-sparing vitrectomy (LSV) for treatment of tractional retinal detachments (TRDs) associated with stages 4B and 5 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). METHODS We performed a retrospective review of medical records and data analyses of consecutive patients who(More)
PURPOSE To determine the risk factors including retinal or vitreous hemorrhage for retinal detachment after laser photocoagulation in threshold or aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity. METHODS The medical records of 184 eyes of 94 consecutive infants who underwent diode laser photocoagulation for threshold or aggressive posterior retinopathy of(More)
PURPOSE To study the clinical characteristics of multiple sclerosis and associated optic neuritis in Korean children. METHOD A retrospective analysis was performed on 10 patients with an onset of multiple sclerosis before age 16. Information on sex, age of onset, clinical course, laboratory findings, and clinical characteristics of optic neuritis was(More)
AIMS To classify patients with intermittent exotropia (IXT) according to the level of near stereopsis, evaluate postoperative stereoacuity and assess the surgical outcomes among groups. METHODS The records of 137 patients with IXT were reviewed. Patients were divided into three groups based on the degree of stereopsis: good (40-60 arcsec), moderate(More)
PURPOSE To address the clinical course of patients who initially presented with small exodeviation (≥ 10 and ≤ 18 prism diopters [PD]) and to investigate the risk factors associated with progression. METHODS The clinical records of patients who were first diagnosed as having intermittent exotropia of small initial deviation from August 2008 to March 2011(More)
