The effect of intravitreal dexamethasone implant used in the treatment of diabetic macular edema on the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness and optic disc morphology was investigated. Six months later the application, global and nasal peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thinning was observed. No significant change was observed in the optic disc cup-to-disc ratio.
Optic nerve head Drusen are a mostly bilateral change of the optic nerve, eventually causing a slow, but progression loss of the visual fields. Characteristic are the crystalline deposits at the entrance of the optic nerve, the so called optic disc. The material consists of calcium, calcium phosphate, iron, but also amino acids and polysaccharides. The diagnose is made or confirmed by different imaging modalities like ultrasound and auto-fluorescence imaging. By using the high...
This study analyzed diabetic patients without evidence of glaucoma who underwent panretinal photocoagulation to determine the effect on optic disc topographic parameters in non-glaucomatous patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR).
Pediatric emergency department (PED) physicians frequently encounter children with symptoms that warrant evaluation of the optic disc for suspected increased intracranial pressure (ICP) such as headache, blurred vision, recurrent vomiting etc. Fundoscopic examination, by the PED physician, is considered an essential modality for assessment of the optic disc and the diagnosis of papilledema. Obtaining good visualization of the optic disc requires patient compliance, the ability ...
In approximately half of individuals with Down syndrome, an higher than normal number of vessels cross the optic disc margin. Investigator hypothesize that early retinal vessel branching occurs due to inhibition of angiogenesis by triplet overexpression of endostatin, an angiogenesis inhibitor encoded on chromosome 21. Since angiogenesis is critical in the development of eyes and other organs angiogenesis depended (specially kidney, brain, and recently described lungs and heart...
To study the effect of mild laser treatment on the incidence of exudative complications in soft drusen maculopathy. We hypothesise that mild laser treatment causing a proliferation of the retinal pigment epithelium and enhancing the capacity of clearing drusen material from Bruch's membrane.
Because the measurement of the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness is very sensitive to the position of measurement, it may be incorrect in patients with the tilted disc. In the present study, the corrected RNFL thickness by the optic nerve head configuration using the Cirrus HD OCT will be evaluated. If the corrected RNFL thickness is more sensitive to detect the localized RNFL defect, the present software should be upgrade to reflect the optic nerve head configuration.
To evaluate the diagnostic value of systematic ophthalmologic imaging examination in the diagnosis of embedded optic disc drusen (ODD) in adolescents with mild visual impairment.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The recent expansion of the applications of optical coherence tomography (OCT) demonstrated a higher correlation between the analysis of ganglion cells and visual function, in comparison with the analysis of the nerve fiber layer for several diseases of the optic nerve. Atrophy of the ganglion cells tends to induce the visual function deficits. In the case of optic neuritis, inflammation of the optic nerve causes a deficit of visual function initially...
Papilledema is defined as swelling of the optic nerves often due to increased intracranial pressure. When present, it often indicates life-threatening lesions of the brain such as tumors, abscesses, meningitis, encephalitis, venous sinus obstruction or intracranial hemorrhage. A similar clinical picture can also be caused by other conditions such as malignant hypertension, diabetic papillopathy and uremia. When the intracranial pressure is elevated in the absence of any known c...
since glaucoma is considered an optic neuropathy, new treatments for glaucoma are being continuously investigated, including neuroprotection. Previous studies implied that phenytoin, a potent anti-convulsive drug, has a neuroprotective role, and Na+ channels blockage was suggested as a possible mechanism. This study predicts that glaucoma patients taking Phenytoin will have a less advanced glaucoma as compared to patients not taking the drug. Glaucoma severity will be determi...
The aim of this study is to improve the humoral immune response efficiency of hemodialyzed patient by the use of PMMA membrane (BK-F) able to clear the soluble form of CD40 in a model of anti-HBV vaccination
This study examined whether there is an association between the presence of lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration (LDD) and the size and symmetry of the cross-sectional areas (CSAs) of the trunk muscles in combat sports athletes. Participants in this study were collegiate combat sports athletes. All intervertebral discs from L1/2 to L5/S1 in all athletes were assessed using MRI and a comprehensive grading system of LDD (grades I-V). All 151 athletes were divided into 2 groups...
The investigators have documented a genetic predisposition for some astronauts to develop ophthalmologic issues (e.g., choroidal folds, cotton wool spots, optic disc edema). Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have several characteristics similar to those described in astronauts, including: higher homocysteine concentrations, increased incidence of intracranial hypertension, increased retinal nerve fiber layer thickness, increased incidence of white matter hyperintensit...
A prospective, double blinded, multi-center study to assess the validity and clinical utility of the pre-operative NOCISCAN-LS software in the identification of painful lumbar discs, and the correlation with improved surgical outcomes at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months (follow-up) following spine surgery in a single enrollment arm of subjects with chronic symptomatic single level degenerative disc disease (DDD) at L3 to S1, but with two evaluation groups- Match Group and Miss Group,of s...
Chronic glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness and visual loss in the developed world. It is a condition where long term exposure to high eye pressures (intra-ocular pressure) damages the nerve fibres in the eye. This damage can be seen by examiners as changes in the optic nerve. The exact mechanism of how the high intra-ocular pressure causes nerve damage is unknown. Both physiological and mechanical mechanisms are thought to play a role. Previous authors have repo...
Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of blindness in the industrialized nations. For a long time glaucoma has been defined as a disease in which high intraocular pressure (IOP) leads to irreversible optic disc damage and subsequent visual field loss. However, recent investigations show that IOP is not the only factor that is involved in the glaucomatous process leading to retinal ganglion cell death. The role of vascular factors in the pathogenesis of glaucoma has recently...
Following acute inflammation of the optic nerve region, as commonly seen in multiple sclerosis patients, the optic nerve often undergoes atrophy, thus representing permanent damage. Data from animal studies suggest that amiloride may prevent this process. The aim of this study is to assess a potential neuroprotective effect of amiloride in acute autoimmune inflammation of the optic nerve region.
This study will look at the result of using the FLD device as an artificial lumbar disc. The study will compare the safety and effectiveness of the FLD artificial lumbar disc to an already approved artificial lumbar disc.
Non-arthritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy is the most common cause of sudden visual loss due to optic nerve involvement in patients above 50 years old. As this problem can be considered as a sclera out let syndrome an there is no effective and successful treatment for it, we decided to do a neurotomy procedure and relax the involved optic nerve in order to achieve acceptable treating outcome.
This research aims to investigate the correlation between tumor temperature difference and biological factors, such as size, metabolism, treatment response, and tumor aggressiveness. In addition, normal tissue response to radiation therapy in treated organ will be evaluated.
This study evaluates the length of optic nerve lesion on 3D-DIR sequence as an imaging biomarker predictive of retinal axonal loss and visual disability, 12 months after the occurence of a first clinical episode of optic neuritis.
The participant is being asked to be a subject in this research study because the participant may have a disorder that can cause optic nerve damage and impairment of his/her visual function which is called optic neuropathies (ON). Optic neuropathy refers to damage to the optic nerve (a "cable" connecting the eyes and the brain to transmit the visual signals) due to any cause.In this study, the investigator is using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ophthalmic measures such a...
Optic neuritis typically occurs in young (mean age, 32 years), female (77%) patients, and it presents as subacute monocular visual loss that develops over several days. As yet, treatment with intravenous corticosteroid for optic neuritis had no long-term beneficial effect on vision. There are a number of factors that contribute to nerve fibre damage including increased level of sodium, so blocking sodium entry could help to protect them against damage. The main objecti...
