The autors describe an original method of fluororetinographic densitometry based on electronic image analysis. They suggest practical applications of this method and report morphologic and quantitative results of their preliminary study.
The relationship between the ‘diabetic state’ and massive periretinal proliferation (MPP) in idiopathic retinal detachment was examined. In 18 (3.5%) of 508 cases of idiopathic retinal detachment, MPP occurred before or after retinal detachment surgery. In 24 cases of retinal detachment, a...
For our buckling operations in retinal detachment, we prefer lyophilized sclera because it is well tolerated without tissue reaction, and very easy to handle. Its inertness is demonstrated by histopathological examination of sclera fragments taken during reoperations.
Paraffin-embedded sections of eyes enucleated because of hydrophthalmos (23 cases) or retinoblastoma (59 cases) were examined for vascular changes within the proximal optic nerve. Globes of adults, enucleated because of secondary glaucoma (146 cases), were studied for comparison as well as 19...
Open-angle glaucoma is frequently observed in patients with acromegaly suggesting that the somatotropic hormone might facilitate a condition of glaucoma. The open-angle glaucoma patients studied, displayed higher plasma human growth hormone (HGH) levels than control subjects 60 min (30.3 ± 1.7...
We examined 19 cases with SAH, 4 of which presented intraocular hemorrhages (retinal, subhyaloid and in vitreous). The mortality rate was 50% when the intraocular hemorrhages were present compared to 20% when they were absent.
