We reviewed the medical records of four patients with marked intraocular inflammation and hypopyon as the initial manifestation of retained lens fragments after phacoemulsification. The severe inflammatory reaction occurred between one month and one year after the cataract extraction. All four patients underwent pars plana vitrectomy to remove the lens(More)
We studied the dose-dependent retinal toxicity of the available commercial preparation of human recombinant tissue plasminogen activator in the normal rabbit eye. Tissue plasminogen activator was injected into the midvitreous cavity of albino rabbits in doses (per 100 microL) of 25, 50, 75, and 100 micrograms. Control eyes received 100 microL of balanced(More)
PURPOSE To quantitate the effect of diabetic vitrectomy on each patient's visual system and function. METHODS The anatomic and visual acuity outcomes of diabetic vitrectomy among three surgeons at one institution over a 4-year time interval were studied. Outcome parameters describing the visual system function were defined and applied to quantitate the(More)
The retinal toxicity of human tissue plasminogen activator in normal rabbit eyes has recently been reported. We now report the retinal toxicity of tissue plasminogen activator in three groups of vitrectomized rabbit eyes. Group 1 underwent gas compression of the vitreous followed by tissue plasminogen activator injection in doses of 25, 50, and 100(More)
The medical records of 52 patients (53 eyes) with culture-proven gram-negative endophthalmitis between January 1982 and December 1990 were reviewed. Pseudomonas aeruginosa (23% [12/53]) and Haemophilus influenzae (19% [10/53]) were the most frequent isolates in this series. Overall, 26 (49%) of 53 treated patients achieved 20/400 or better visual acuity.(More)
