PURPOSE To evaluate the prognostic value of the cone outer segment tips (COST) and other features using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients undergoing epiretinal membrane (ERM) surgery. DESIGN Retrospective observational case series. METHODS Fifty eyes of 49 patients that underwent vitrectomy for idiopathic ERM were(More)
 Bone marrow iron was estimated by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using spin-echo sequences with multiple echoes in 22 patients with varying degrees of tissue storage iron. Levels of bone marrow iron concentration (BMIC) were determined chemically in biopsied specimens concurrently. Concentrations of serum iron, serum ferritin, and transferrin saturation(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate and measure light–dark changes in iris thickness (IT) and anterior chamber angle width in eyes with occludable angles and open angles by using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). We examined 153 eyes of 153 Japanese patients with primary angle closure suspect, primary angle closure, primary(More)
PURPOSE To predict angle narrowing in eyes with angle closure in a Japanese population using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) quantitative parameters. PATIENTS AND METHODS AS-OCT was used to examine 118 eyes of 118 patients with angle closure and 40 eyes of 40 patients with open angle under dark conditions. After measuring the angle(More)
PURPOSE Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy is a first-line treatment for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) but frequent visits and injections can be a burden for patients. The purpose of this study is to estimate the remission rate and tolerability of anti-VEGF therapy for AMD in a clinical setting. METHODS We investigated 90 eyes(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between angle configuration and diagnostic provocation tests such as the mydriatic provocative test (MPT) and the dark room prone provocative test (DRPPT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy eyes of 70 consecutive patients with primary angle closure suspect, primary angle closure, or primary angle closure glaucoma were(More)
In this study, an invasive site of the tumour cells was quantitatively investigated in the low density area (LDA) on computerized tomography (CT) after steroid and osmotic drug therapy (SOT) by using a texture image analyzing computer system (TAS). Twenty six patients with gliomas (10 benign, 16 malignant) were applied in this study. According to the effect(More)
