PURPOSE To compare the outcomes of combined endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) and phacoemulsification cataract extraction versus cataract extraction alone in eyes with medically controlled open-angle glaucoma (OAG) and visually significant cataract. SETTING Clinical practices of glaucoma specialists and comprehensive ophthalmologists. DESIGN(More)
PURPOSE To present the findings of an outbreak of toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS). SETTING Six states, 7 ophthalmology surgical centers, United States. METHODS Cases were identified through electronic communication networks and via reports to a national TASS referral center. Information on the procedure, details of instrument reprocessing, and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study describes patients' and physicians' perceptions of issues related to dosing adherence with topical therapies for lowering intraocular pressure before and after use of the travoprost dosing aid (Travatan Dosing Aid, Alcon Research Ltd., Fort Worth, Texas). METHODS The study had an open-label, multicenter, single-treatment-arm design(More)
Chronic and recurrent choroidal (ciliochoroidal) detachments developed following glaucoma filtration surgery in 14 eyes of 13 patients during a 9-year period. Three specific subgroups were identified: recurrent, inflammatory, and chronic (present for more than 6 months). The factors that may be related to the development of chronic and recurrent choroidal(More)
PURPOSE To report on the repair of a cyclodialysis cleft by means of endolaser photocoagulation. METHOD Case report. We describe treatment of a cyclodialysis cleft by means of endolaser photocoagulation with a diode laser. RESULTS In a 8-year-old boy with pseudophakia and secondary glaucoma in the right eye, combined trabeculectomy/trabeculotomy was(More)
PURPOSE To describe bilateral hemorrhage of the posterior segment and secondary angle-closure glaucoma as sequelae of anticoagulation therapy in a nanophthalmic patient. METHODS An 80-year-old man who was nanophthalmic and was undergoing anticoagulation therapy presented with declining visual acuity in left eye. Six months later, he experienced declining(More)

PURPOSE To compare the intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering effect of concomitant administration of 0.5% timolol and 2% dorzolamide and a fixed combination dorzolamide-timolol (Cosopt) To critically evaluate discrepancies between phase 3 clinical trials and prior replacement studies. DESIGN A prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial and a(More)
In spite of the presumed importance of the strap muscles on laryngeal valving and speech production, there is little research concerning the physiological role and the functional differences among the strap muscles. Generally, the strap muscles have been shown to cause a decrease in the fundamental frequency (F o) of phonation during contraction. In this(More)
