We compared the airway function of 33 infants with cystic fibrosis and 87 healthy controls after adjustment(More)

Anterior approaches such as a levator aponeurosis advancement, tarsoaponeurectomy and posterior repair involving resection of Muller's muscle have proven to be(More)
The gross anatomy of the lower eyelid is analogous to that of the upper eyelid, however, the lower eyelid has a more simplified structure with less dynamic movement. Common malpositions of the lower eyelid include entropion and ectropion, rehabilitative surgery of which requires a thorough understanding of lower eyelid anatomy. Furthermore, precise anatomic(More)
BACKGROUND We report a case of a HLA-B27 negative patient presenting with severe, bilateral, idiopathic acute anterior uveitis with acute hypotony and hypotony maculopathy as their first uveitic episode. CASE PRESENTATION Within a week of onset of her first episode of acute anterior uveitis, a 45 year-old Caucasian lady developed profound ocular hypotony(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to report a case of Charles Bonnet syndrome secondary to eye patching following eyelid reconstruction with an unusually acute onset. METHOD An observational case report was conducted. RESULTS The patient reported complex visual hallucinations that started less than 10 minutes after patching of her right eye (the left(More)
AIM To describe air regurgitation as a complication in patients on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) following dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery with or without Lester-Jones tube (LJT) insertion. METHODS A retrospective review of all patients with air regurgitation on CPAP therapy who previously(More)
