PURPOSE To compare the clinical characteristics at presentation of multifocal choroiditis with panuveitis (MFCPU) and punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC). METHODS A cross-sectional study of 66 patients (122 eyes) with MFCPU and 13 patients (22 eyes) with PIC was carried out. Diagnosis was based solely on retinal morphology. Demographic information, visual(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the incidences of ocular complications and vision loss in patients with multifocal choroiditis with panuveitis (MFCPU) and to describe the association between therapy and the incidences thereof. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-six patients (122 eyes) with MFCPU evaluated from January 1984 through June 2005 at a(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical characteristics of patients with optic neuropathy complicating multifocal choroiditis and panuveitis (MFCPU). DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS Eight patients (11 eyes) with MFCPU and optic neuropathy from a single center were reviewed and clinical outcomes described. RESULTS The median age of patients was 45(More)
This study compared the quality of reduction and complication rate when using a standard ilioinguinal approach and the new pararectus approach when treating acetabular fractures surgically. All acetabular fractures that underwent fixation using either approach between February 2005 and September 2014 were retrospectively reviewed and the demographics of the(More)
A case is presented of posterior left ventricular rupture occurring from resection of intramyocardial calcification during mitral valve replacement. The laceration was obvious on the operating table with discontinuation of cardiopulmonary bypass, but attempts at simple closure with buttressd sutures were unsuccessful. The ventricular defect was repaired by(More)
The demographic change in industrial countries leads to an increasing population that sustains an acetabular fracture in an advanced age. Some authors predicted elderly individuals to be the most rapidly growing subgroup of patients currently sustaining acetabular fractures. Gold standard of treatment of acetabular fractures remains the open reduction and(More)
