In the study is given the analysis of the data from National Tumour Registry of Slovak Republic--code 190 (ICD-9) in Slovakia over the period 1968-1989. The paper presents a survey of the incidence of notified malignant intraocular tumours: we notified 976 diseases--in male 528 (54%) and 448 in female (46%). Intraocular tumours were 0.3% of all the(More)
BACKGROUND Traumatic mechanical damage of the eye can cause serious morphological and functional changes in eye structures. Thorough examination and appropriate approach are essential in successful treatment and maintenance of visual functions. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the years 2005-2007, 78 patients with mechanical eye injury were treated at the(More)
The area of ophthalmooncology includes not only intraocular tumors but also adnexal and extraocular tumors, relatively rare malignancies. To get valid data and to study the incidence, diagnosis and treatment is extremely difficult. The most frequently occurring intraocular tumor in adults is malignant melanoma, in children it is retinoblastoma. We present(More)
Stem cell therapy (SCT) is a promising and prospective approach in the treatment of patients with severe peripheral arterial disorders, primarily with Buerger’s disease. However, very little is known about the duration of the effect of SCT, and to our best knowledge no data are available on the efficacy and safety of repeated SCT in patients with Buerger’s(More)
In this contribution the activity of antiglaucomatics--2% pilocarpine (pH 5.98), 0.5% timoptol (pH 6.58) and 0.005% xalatan (pH 6.83) is emphasized from the view of pH values and changes of the pH values of the rabbit aqueous humor in vitro after their application. The rabbit's aqueous humor pH is 7.59--similar to the human healthy eye (7.5-7.6). We(More)
The presented experimental work is focused to examine effectivity of the amino acid 10% L-arginine x HCl mixture with antiglaucomatic--2% Trusopt (carbonic anhydrase inhibitor) and with 0.5% Timoptol (non-selective beta-blocker) and of the each single compound on intraocular pressure (IOP). In the group of 5 rabbits (New Zealander White) with physiological(More)
The authors reports about the group of 17 patients in whom an IOL was implanted in eyes with traumatic cataract caused by IOFB. In 8 patients varied the interval between IOFB removal and IOL implantation from 5 months to 5 years. In 7 patients was IOFB removal and IOL implantation performed in one procedure. In one patient was IOFB not removed and in one(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of locally instilled 10% L-arginine.HCI and 10% L-lysine.2HC1.2H20 in 0.005% Latanoprost (Xalatane) mixture on the physiological IOP in rabbits. METHODS After instillation of the arginine and lysine in 0.005% latanoprost mixture into the left conjunctival sac of 5 female rabbits of the New Zealand White species the, IOP was(More)
