PURPOSE To investigate the spatial relationship between retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measured with optical coherence tomography (OCT) and visual field sensitivity (VFS) measured by standard automated perimetry (SAP) in chiasmal compression. METHODS Twenty-six patients with chiasmal compression were enrolled. RNFL thickness was measured with(More)
BACKGROUND Post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) is the most common complication of herpes zoster (shingles). As a chronic condition, PHN can have a substantial adverse impact on patients' lives. However, UK-specific data concerning the burden of PHN on individual patients, healthcare systems and wider society, are lacking. As the first UK-wide cross-sectional(More)
BACKGROUND Herpes zoster (HZ) is a painful condition that can have a substantial negative impact on patients' lives. However, UK-specific data on the debilitating impact of HZ, in terms of patients' experience of pain and impairments in Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) are limited. The Zoster Quality of Life (ZQOL) study, a large-scale UK(More)
In the context of current economic difficulties across Europe, accurate budgeting and resource allocation have become increasingly important. Vaccination programmes can respond to the needs of governments to budget with confidence. It may be more reliable and accurate to forecast budget and resource allocation for a vaccination programme than for(More)
Acute presentation of herpes zoster (HZ) and the subsequent development of post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) can have a significant impact on patients’ lives. To date, evidence regarding the human and economic burden of HZ and PHN in the UK is limited. To address this knowledge gap a national, multicentre, large-scale real-world study was conducted to inform(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between abnormalities detected by the multifocal visual-evoked potential (mfVEP) compared with those detected by static achromatic automated perimetry in patients with compressive optic neuropathy. METHODS Fifteen patients of mean age 50.8 years, with known compressive optic neuropathy from chiasmal lesions, underwent(More)
The full economic and societal value of vaccination is complex to assess. Although direct protection is the immediate goal of vaccination programmes, it is rare that 100% uptake is attained. An important facet of vaccines value comes from the indirect (or herd) protection they provide. The evolving dynamics of our society, including the increase in the(More)
T heoretical and empirical evidence has demonstrated that health has a major role to play as a driver for economic growth. Improving health outcomes can have a positive impact on economic outcomes and societal well-being, for example, through longer working lives, higher productivity, improved educational outcomes , social inclusion, and reduced healthcare(More)
