The authors describe a case of a previously unreported phenomenon of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) expansion, in absence of inflammation, due to treatment of an associated choroidal neovascular mem...
The choroid is a vascular network that supplies the bulk of the retina's oxygen and nutrient supply. Prior studies have associated changes in the thickness of the choroid with the presence of various ...
To evaluate choroidal vascularity index (CVI), choroidal thickness, choroidal volume, and choroidal intensity in subjects with nonneovascular age-related macular degeneration (NNVAMD) with and without...
To evaluate the association between treatment response and quantitative morphological changes in choroidal neovascularization and outer choroidal vessels using optical coherence tomography angiography...
Choroidal granuloma is rarely seen as the first sign of tuberculosis(TB). Here we report a case of a 34-year old male with a choroidal mass which was associated with serous retinal detachment on EDI-O...
This research is being done to look at the effects of an experimental drug, ranibizumab, on a condition called "predominantly hemorrhagic subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV)" due ...
The goals of this study are to assess the short-term (10-60 minutes) effects of different magnitudes of myopic and hyperopic optical defocus on the transient thickness of the choroid in ch...
The purpose of the study is to compare photodynamic therapy to transpupillary thermotherapy as a treatment method for choroidal neovascularization in age-related macular degeneration ( AMD...
The investigators hypothesize that it is safe and effective to treat patients with choroidal neovascularisation (abnormal blood vessels growing under the retina) secondary to uveitis with ...
The choroid is a richly vascularized conjunctive tissue, providing the nutritive elements to the pigmentary epithelium and the photoreceptors of the retina. It drains 80% of the eye's bloo...
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
A form of RETINAL DEGENERATION in which abnormal CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION occurs under the RETINA and MACULA LUTEA, causing bleeding and leaking of fluid. This leads to bulging and or lifting of the macula and the distortion or destruction of central vision.
Persistent detrimental effects from treatment for a condition. Included are effects from surgery such as POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS, and from DRUG THERAPY, such as CHEMICALLY INDUCED DISORDERS, or other THERAPEUTICS. Failure to attain a desired outcome from treatment for the condition is not considered an adverse effect.
A potassium sparing diuretic that acts by antagonism of aldosterone in the distal renal tubules. It is used mainly in the treatment of refractory edema in patients with congestive heart failure, nephrotic syndrome, or hepatic cirrhosis. Its effects on the endocrine system are utilized in the treatments of hirsutism and acne but they can lead to adverse effects. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p827)
The treatment of patients without the use of allogeneic BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS or blood products.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
