To investigate the long-term efficacy of subthreshold micropulse diode laser photocoagulation (SMDLP) on diabetic macular edema (DME). The effects of SMDLP (810 nm) were studied on 56 eyes of 44 patients with DME. Optical coherence tomography-determined foveal thickness and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) were evaluated at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationship between the retinal thickness and sensitivity of the macular region after successful reattachment of an acute macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). METHODS Twenty-three eyes of 23 patients with an acute macula-off RRD were studied (17 men, 6 women). The mean age of the patients was 53.2±14.7 years with a(More)
PURPOSE To examine the effects of macular ischemia after intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) in patients with diabetic macular edema(DME). METHODS Thirty-three eyes of 33 patients with DME were treated with IVB. Fluorescein angiography (FA) was conducted before and 3 months after IVB, the pretreatment sizes of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) calculated by FA(More)
We compared the efficacy of intravitreal aflibercept (IVA) to intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) injections in eyes with diabetic macular edema (DME). The medical records of 49 eyes of 36 patients who were diagnosed with DME and had received IVR and 46 eyes of 40 patients who had received IVA treatment were reviewed. The central macular thickness (CMT) and(More)
A 50-year-old woman with a past history of breast cancer was referred to our department of radiology for detailed examination after abnormal shadows on chest x-ray were detected following a routine medical examination. After lung biopsy via thoracotomy, segmental resection of the lung was performed and mediastinal lymph nodes were dissected. A(More)
To compare the therapeutic effects of panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) combined with intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) and cryoretinopexy (CR-IVB) to that of PRP combined with IVB alone in eyes with neovascular glaucoma (NVG). Retrospective, consecutive, case-control study. The medical records of 102 eyes of 96 patients with NVG due to proliferative diabetic(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationship between preoperative and postoperative characteristics and visual outcomes after successful surgery for unclosed macular hole (MH). METHODS The medical charts of 166 eyes of 161 patients who underwent vitrectomy for a MH were reviewed. The MH was not closed in 9 eyes of 9 patients after the initial surgery. The second(More)
We report a patient with cognitive disorder who had a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). A 17-year-old Japanese man presented with a RRD with a vitreous hemorrhage in his right eye. An unusual vertical splitting of the macula accompanied by a giant retinal tear was observed intraoperatively. The retina was successfully reattached by pars plana(More)
PURPOSE To examine the efficacy of subthreshold micropulse diode laser photocoagulation (SMDLP) in eyes with diabetic macular edema (DME) with hard exudates. METHODS Ten eyes of 10 patients with diffuse DME were treated with SMDLP (810 nm). Hard exudates had accumulated within the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) in all patients. The mean retinal sensitivity(More)
