Endovascular repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms is an alternative to open surgical repair in certain patients. Endoleaks are a potential complication, and they represent a posttreatment failure due to a persistent communication between the aneurysm and the systemic arterial circulation. Left untreated, an endoleak may lead to continued aneurismal(More)
The diameter of the large retinal vessels is an important factor in retinal microcirculation. A system configuration was developed that uses SLO images to measure the diameter of retinal branch vessels off-line. The place for measurement is defined in the image by the investigator, and the diameter is measured automatically. The mean standard deviation of(More)
Two cases of malignant non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the retina and choroid with cerebral involvement are reported. In both cases, early infiltrates appear to have originated in the capillary layer of the choroid. Subsequently, Bruch's membrane was penetrated and tumorous infiltrates were found beneath the retinal pigment epithelium. The resulting reactions(More)
In 31 patients with normal-pressure glaucoma, retinal blood flow, diameter of the retinal vessels and velocity were measured with 2-point fluorometry and automatic measurement of the diameters before and after administration of 0.5% timolol over 2 weeks. After timolol therapy the tension was significantly decreased (before therapy: 18.26 +/- 2.50; after(More)
48 patients with chronic severe uveitis of pressumed noninfectious origin resistent to corticosteroids have been treated with Cyclosporin A. All patients had an initial loading dose of 5 mg/kg/day followed by a dose reduction according to ocular inflammatory activity and tolerability and according the guidelines by BenEzra, Nussenblatt and Timonen.
