    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Health and Welfare; Hälsa och välfärd;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to describe and evaluate visual acuity, macular edema and patientreported outcomes (PRO) following anti-VEGF treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME) patients in a real-world setting. Using a longitudinal study design, a cohort of DME patients was followed from baseline to 1 year after treatment start. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Patient-reported and medical outcomes in patients treated for diabetic macular edema : A real-world longitudinal study

    Sammanfattning : Background Diabetes mellitus can lead to complications, when the complication affects the eyes it is called retinopathy. This can affect the macula and lead to severe loss of vision, diabetic macular edema (DME). This condition has traditionally been treated with laser. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Clinical and Experimental Approach to the Benefits and Risks of Laser Treatment for Diabetic Macular Edema

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diabetic macular edema; laser treatment; retinal pigment epithelium; ARPE-19; microarray; proteomics;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetic retinopathy is an ophthalmic complication of diabetes that currently affects 93 million people worldwide. Diabetic macular edema is a subtype of diabetic retinopathy that is characterized by leaking blood vessels in the central part of the retina, and it is a major cause of vision loss in individuals with diabetes.

  4. 4. Comparing retinal function and structure in diabetic maculopathy and retinal detachment with ff-ERG and a combination of mfERG and OCT

    Författare :Kristina Holm; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mfERG; OCT; ff-ERG; diabetes; macular edema; retinal detachment; scleral buckling; retinectomy;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetic maculopathy and retinal detachment, especially involving macula, are potentially sight-threatening conditions. Previous evaluations of retinal function, and treatment of these conditions have been subjective methods depending on the examiner or the collaboration with the examined patient. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cataract surgery in patients with diabetes mellitus : clinical studies

    Författare :Anna Zaczek; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; diabetic retinopathy; clinically significant macular edema; miosis; mydriasis; neuropathy; phenylephrine; pilocarpine; visual acuity; laser flare intensity; cataract surgery; phacoemulsification; blood-aqueous barrier; postoperative inflammation; posterior capsule opacification; intraocular lens; Scheimflug camera;

    Sammanfattning : The aim was to evaluate phacoemulsification cataract extraction with small incision and implantation of heparin-coated intraocular lens (IOL) in the capsular bag in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). The aqueous flare intensity, which reflects the protein concentration in the aqueous humor, was used to evaluate blood-aqueous function in patients with DM type I and type II. LÄS MER
