PURPOSE Age-related degradation of the elastic lamina in Bruch's membrane may have a permissive effect on the growth of choroidal neovascularization (CNV). This study investigated the influence of defective elastic fiber maintenance in the development of laser-induced CNV. METHODS A mouse lacking lysyl oxidase-like (LOXL)-1, an enzyme essential for(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this work is to characterize a transparent tissue layer partially covering the anterior surface of the type I Boston permanent keratoprosthesis front plate in four patients. METHODS The tissue over the front plate was easily scrolled back as a single transparent layer using a sponge. In two cases, histopathologic analysis was(More)
PURPOSE To review a series of extramacular choroidal neovascular membranes (CNVMs) in the context of their choroidal features, as determined by optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS Patients with extramacular CNVMs were identified from a tertiary care center through a review of records. The charts and cases were reviewed using multimodal imaging(More)
Overexpression of SLMAP gene has been associated with diabetes and endothelial dysfunction of macro- and micro-blood vessels. In this study our primary objective is to explore the role of SLMAP gene polymorphisms in the susceptibility of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) with or without diabetic retinopathy (DR) in the Qatari population. A total of 342 Qatari subjects(More)
A 52-year-old woman presented with pain, decreased visual acuity, decreased color vision, and visual field loss in the OD. Fundus examination revealed optic disc edema and later a macular star figure consistent with neuroretinitis. Magnetic resonance imaging showed enhancement of the orbital optic nerve sheath and perineural fat suggestive of optic(More)
