BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (FLAIR) MR imaging may show subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) with high sensitivity. We hypothesized that the FLAIR technique is effective and reliable in the diagnosis of cerebral intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). METHODS Two observers evaluated the 1.5-T MR fast spin-echo FLAIR images, T1- and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate posterior and anterior segment safety of an intracameral injection of moxifloxacin 0.5% ophthalmic solution as prophylaxis for endophthalmitis in patients having cataract surgery. SETTING Three private practices, the University of Minnesota School of Medicine, Stillwater, Minnesota, and the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the stability of 2.2 mm and 3.0 mm clear corneal cataract incisions with square or nearly square surface architecture. SETTING Private practice ambulatory surgical center, Century City, California, USA. METHODS A retrospective chart review of 60 patients who had clear corneal cataract extraction between January and September 2006 was(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the difference between 2.2-mm incision micro-coaxial phacoemulsification and traditional 3.0-mm coaxial phacoemulsification with respect to surgically induced astigmatism after temporally oriented clear corneal incision cataract surgery. METHODS This prospective, randomized, intra-patient controlled study comprised 22 patients who(More)
We describe a technique combining preoperative atropine sulfate 1% and intraoperative intracameral epinephrine in a 1:2500 dilution for the management of intraoperative floppy-iris syndrome (IFIS) induced by alpha(1A)-blocking agents such as tamsulosin. Patients on alpha(1A)-blocking agents used topical atropine sulfate 1% 3 times a day for 2 days before(More)
MRI of intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH) has not been studied formally. We aimed to describe the degradation rate and patterns shown on 1.5 T MRI in IVH, comparing them to other coexisting brain hemorrhage. We studied 50 consecutive cases using T1-, proton-density, and T2-weighted images. IVH was seen in two forms: layered (free-flowing in ventricles) (37(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Some studies suggest an association between light exposure and increased risk of advanced age-related macular degeneration. The natural lens serves as a barrier to some of the higher energy light rays. There is some concern that cataract surgery may be contributing to the increase in prevalence of age-related macular degeneration. RECENT(More)
