Small breaks in the elastin-filled tissue of the retina.
An inherited disorder of connective tissue with extensive degeneration and calcification of ELASTIC TISSUE primarily in the skin, eye, and vasculature. At least two forms exist, autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant. This disorder is caused by mutations of one of the ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS. Patients are predisposed to MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION and GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE.
Visualization of a vascular system after intravenous injection of a fluorescein solution. The images may be photographed or televised. It is used especially in studying the retinal and uveal vasculature.
A pathological process consisting of the formation of new blood vessels in the CHOROID.
The concave interior of the eye, consisting of the retina, the choroid, the sclera, the optic disk, and blood vessels, seen by means of the ophthalmoscope. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
Connective tissue comprised chiefly of elastic fibers. Elastic fibers have two components: ELASTIN and MICROFIBRILS.
A sequence-related subfamily of ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS that actively transport organic substrates. Although considered organic anion transporters, a subset of proteins in this family have also been shown to convey drug resistance to neutral organic drugs. Their cellular function may have clinical significance for CHEMOTHERAPY in that they transport a variety of ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS. Overexpression of proteins in this class by NEOPLASMS is considered a possible mechanism in the development of multidrug resistance (DRUG RESISTANCE, MULTIPLE). Although similar in function to P-GLYCOPROTEINS, the proteins in this class share little sequence homology to the p-glycoprotein family of proteins.
Diseases in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT from ESOPHAGUS to RECTUM.
Lists of words, usually in alphabetical order, giving information about form, pronunciation, etymology, grammar, and meaning.
The administration of substances into the VITREOUS BODY of the eye with a hypodermic syringe.
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
Degenerative changes in the RETINA usually of older adults which results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the MACULA LUTEA) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in dry and wet forms.
Lenses designed to be worn on the front surface of the eyeball. (UMDNS, 1999)
Surgery performed on the eye or any of its parts.
The removal of a circular disk of the cranium.
Therapy using oral or topical photosensitizing agents with subsequent exposure to light.
Agents and endogenous substances that antagonize or inhibit the development of new blood vessels.
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.
Antibodies from non-human species whose protein sequences have been modified to make them nearly identical with human antibodies. If the constant region and part of the variable region are replaced, they are called humanized. If only the constant region is modified they are called chimeric. INN names for humanized antibodies end in -zumab.
A procedure for removal of the crystalline lens in cataract surgery in which an anterior capsulectomy is performed by means of a needle inserted through a small incision at the temporal limbus, allowing the lens contents to fall through the dilated pupil into the anterior chamber where they are broken up by the use of ultrasound and aspirated out of the eye through the incision. (Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed & In Focus 1993;1(1):1)
An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.
Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.
An oval area in the retina, 3 to 5 mm in diameter, usually located temporal to the posterior pole of the eye and slightly below the level of the optic disk. It is characterized by the presence of a yellow pigment diffusely permeating the inner layers, contains the fovea centralis in its center, and provides the best phototropic visual acuity. It is devoid of retinal blood vessels, except in its periphery, and receives nourishment from the choriocapillaris of the choroid. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
The removal of a cataractous CRYSTALLINE LENS from the eye.
Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease.

Angioid streaks. I. Ophthalmoscopic variations and diagnostic problems. (1/26)

Fifty-six patients with angioid streaks were evaluated ophthalmologically. Most had repeated fundus photography and fluorescein angiography during a follow-up period of 6 months to 7 years. The ophthalmoscopic variations and diagnostic difficulties which occurred were noted. In most instances, the angioid streaks were not initially recognized and the patient was referred with another diagnosis. In several cases, the peripapillary, macular, and peripheral changes seen with angioid streaks were found to simulate other better known fundus conditions, resulting in the erroneous diagnosis and improper treatment. In some cases, the angioid streaks were so subtle that they were overlooked and in others they were observed, but initially interpreted as something else. Because of the medical significance of angioid streaks, ophthalmologists should be aware of their variable features. These are discussed, with emphasis upon those subtleties which differentiate angioid streaks from other conditions which they may simulate. On the basis of these observations, an ophthalmoscopic differential diagnosis of angioid streaks is proposed.  (+info)

Elastic tissue abnormalities resembling pseudoxanthoma elasticum in beta thalassemia and the sickling syndromes. (3/26)

The development of clinical and histopathologic manifestations of a diffuse elastic tissue defect, resembling inherited pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE), has been encountered with a notable frequency in patients with beta thalassemia, sickle cell disease, and sickle thalassemia. The PXE-like clinical syndrome, consisting of skin, ocular, and vascular manifestations, has a variable severity in these hemoglobinopathies and it is age-dependent, with a generally late onset, after the second decade of life. The defect is believed to be acquired rather than inherited and related to the consequences of the primary disease. The high prevalence of the findings implicates the elastic tissue injury as one of the main comorbid abnormalities encountered in beta thalassemia and the sickling syndromes. In these patients a number of complications, sometimes serious, has been recognized to be related to ocular and vascular elastic tissue defects. Because several organ systems are involved, each medical specialty should be aware of the phenomenon. This coexistence, on the other hand, introduces a novel pathogenetic aspect of PXE and an important research challenge.  (+info)

Angioid streaks and sickle haemoglobinopathies. (4/26)

Five patients had angioid streaks associated with sickle cell haemoglobinopathy. Other diseases associated with angioid streaks were ruled out, as was elastic tissue degenegation in sickle cell patients. After studying over 350 patients, we believe the incidence of angioid streaks in sickle cell disease to be between 1 and 2 per cent.  (+info)

Intravascular ultrasound findings of coronary wall morphology in a patient with pseudoxanthoma elasticum. (5/26)

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is an inherited disorder characterised by progressive calcification of the elastic fibres in the skin, eye, and cardiovascular system. Recently, mutations in the ATP binding cassette transporter gene (ABCC6) were identified as cause of this disease. Although patients with PXE often have coronary artery disease, little is known about the process and the mechanism of coronary artery disease in PXE. In this report, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging was performed in a female patient with PXE seven years after the onset of skin lesion to assess the coronary wall morphology in detail. IVUS showed a unique five layer appearance without acoustic shadowing along the vessel wall observed in the angiographically normal portion. These findings may reflect the earlier stage of coronary artery disease caused by PXE before calcification of the internal elastic laminae.  (+info)

Photodynamic therapy with verteporfin for choroidal neovascularization in patients with angioid streaks. (6/26)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the functional and anatomic outcomes of photodynamic therapy (PDT) for choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in patients with angioid streaks. METHODS: The authors retrospectively evaluated 6 consecutive patients (6 eyes) with CNV secondary to angioid streaks. All patients were treated with standard PDT with verteporfin protocol. Standardized protocol refraction, visual acuity testing, ophthalmologic examination, color photographs, fluorescein angiograms and indocyanin angiograms were used to evaluate the results of PDT with verteporfin. Main outcome measures were visual acuity and CNV size. RESULTS: Their mean age was 61.3+/-5.50 years (range, 53-68 years). Follow-up time ranged from 12 to 38 months with mean of 20.5+/-10.91 months. The mean visual acuity at baseline was 20/100 (range 20/25-20/500), and the mean visual acuity at the last examination was 20/320(range 20/125-counting finger). The mean greatest linear dimension (GLD) at baseline was 2400+/-766.81 micrometer, and the mean GLD at the last examination was 3483+/-444.59 micrometer. CONCLUSIONS: PDT for CNV associated with angioid streaks seemed to slow down but not prevent the progression of the disease and associated visual loss.  (+info)

Intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin) in choroidal neovascular membrane in angioid streaks. (7/26)

Angioid streaks are crack-like dehiscences in the Bruch's membrane, which predispose to the development of a choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) that carries a poor visual outcome. We report successful treatment in a 25-year-old woman with bilateral angioid streaks and subfoveal CNVM in the left eye who received two doses of intravitreal bevacizumab (1.25 mg) injections six weeks apart, resulting in rapid regression of the CNVM.  (+info)

Non-vascular vision loss in pseudoxanthoma elasticum. (8/26)

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum patients with angioid streaks are well-known to have acute vision loss due to choroidal bleeding. However, chronic vision loss due to macular atrophy is less well characterized. We describe a patient with sub-acute vision loss in one eye due to loss of macular retinal pigment epithelium function. Autofluorescence and pattern electroretinogram were useful adjuncts to help diagnose the source of her vision loss.  (+info)

Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of intravitreal bevacizumab (IB) in the long-term control of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with angioid streaks (AS).. Methods: Patients with unilateral active CNV associated with AS were enrolled. Exclusion criteria were previous treatment for CNV and co-morbidity. Postoperative visual acuity was defined as a gain or loss of 2 or more lines of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA).. Post-treatment CNV size was dichotomized into increased, if the CNV area had grown by ≥200 μm2, and stable/reduced if it had decreased by ≥200 μm2 or had not changed by more than 200 μm2. Patients were retreated if no further improvement or worsening was noted.. Results: Patients were 5 males and 6 females aged 33 to 58 years (mean 46.8±9.2 SD), who received a mean number of 3.5 IB treatments (±1.3; min: 2, max: 6). The mean retreatment interval was 3 months (±1.5; min: 1, max: 6). Mean follow-up duration was 23.8±2.9 months. At 20 months all ...

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a hereditary disorder that affects primarily the elastic tissues of skin, eyes and blood vessels. Its estimated prevalence is thought to be 1:25,000 - 100,000. PXE patients also carry an increased risk for cardiovascular and gastrointestinal diseases. Early diagnosis can play a crucial role in preventing early loss of vision and systemic complications in these patients however despite having characteristic clinical features; it is still to a large extent being under-diagnosed. Here we present two cases of PXE with reduced vision.
Case 1: A 49 year-old woman with history of Hepatitis C and chronic mild leucopenia presents with vision loss of the right eye. Distance-corrected visual acuity (DCVA) of the right eye was hand movement and of the left eye was 10/10. Yellow papules and plucked chicken skin lesions compatible with pseudoxanthoma elasticum were found in the cervical skin. Typical lesions of angioid streaks were visible in both eyes, as well as subfoveal CNV associated with rupture of the retinal pigmentary epithelium (RPE), an area of subretinal haemorrhage and macular subretinal fibrosis. A protocol of three ranibizumab intravitreal injections (IVI) was proposed despite the reserved prognosis. Case 2: 48 year-old man presents with loss of vision of the left eye. DCVA in OD was 10/10 and 4/10 in the OS at presentation. A subfoveal lesion compatible with an acquired vitelliform lesion with associated rupture of the RPE and subretinal fluid was found on the left eye. Careful examination revealed angioid streaks in ...

Five eyes of 4 patients (2 females, age 16-81 years) were included. The first eye had a history of bilateral Best vitelliform dystrophy and unilateral choroidal neovascularization. The second eye had angioid streaks complicated by choroidal neovascularization and underwent prior thermal laser photocoagulation. The third eye had a history of high myopia and scleral buckle for retinal detachment. The fourth patient had bilateral idiopathic retinochoroiditis. We identified 16 cases from 5 previous publications which support a MEWDS-like reaction to previous ocular insults ...
The recent development of photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the treatment of subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) has provoked considerable interest amongst UK ophthalmologists, patients, hospital managers, public health physicians and the media. The recent publication of the Treatment of Age-related Macular Degeneration (TAP) report1 and the further data expected soon from this and other randomised clinical trials is likely to have a major impact on service provision in the UK. The vast majority of cases of subfoveal CNV are caused by age-related macular degeneration (AMD) but other causes include pathological myopia, angioid streaks and punctate inner choroidopathy, especially in younger patients. Until very recently confluent argon laser photocoagulation has been the only treatment modality of proven clinical efficacy but after initial enthusiasm its role has become restricted to the treatment of eyes with extrafoveal CNV. In addition to PDT other therapeutic options for subfoveal CNV ...

PY - 2010/8/13. Y1 - 2010/8/13. N2 - The development of therapy with anti-angiogenics or vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors (anti-VEGF) has marked the beginning of a new era in neovascularization and macular edema treatment. Its main goals are the inhibition of growth and development of new vessels along with the reduction of vascular permeability. The advantages over conventional laser photocoagulation are evident as laser treatment always leaves scars and causes a retinal sensitivity deterioration.Starting with an outline of treatment principles, this volume covers all aspects of anti-VEGF therapy for ophthalmological disorders. In particular, specific chapters are dedicated to age-related macular degeneration, degenerative myopia, angioid streaks, inflammatory diseases, hereditary ...
Skin lesions appear during the second decade of life, with a progressive increase in number and severity during adolescence. The disease is clinically heterogeneous, being limited to only one organ in some patients but affecting all three organs in others. The skin lesions consist of yellow papules that may merge to form plaques. They appear mainly in the flexural areas of the neck and elbows, popliteal spaces and umbilical region, and are accompanied by loosening of the skin around the inguinal folds and armpits. Ophthalmological findings include retinal pigment epithelium anomalies, drusen, angioid streaks (fissuring of the Bruch membrane of the retina), and neovascularization and bleeding leading to retinal hemorrhage and, in many patients, loss of visual acuity. Involvement of the macula may lead to patients being declared as legally blind. Cardiovascular manifestations lead to intermittent claudication of the lower and/or upper limbs due to arteriosclerosis of medium-sized arteries with ...
The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation provides support and resources for children and adults born with hemangiomas, port wine stains, and other vascular birthmarks.
Usually, pseudoxanthoma elasticum affects the skin first, often in childhood but frequently later. Small, yellowish papular lesions form and cutaneous laxity mainly affects the neck, axillae (armpits), groin, and flexural creases (the inside parts of the elbows and knees). Skin may become lax and redundant. Many individuals have oblique mental creases (diagonal grooves of the chin).[2]. PXE first affects the retina through a dimpling of the Bruch membrane (a thin membrane separating the blood vessel-rich layer from the pigmented layer of the retina), that is only visible during ophthalmologic examinations. This is called peau dorange (a French term meaning that the retina resembles the skin of an orange). Eventually the mineralization of the elastic fibers in the Bruch membrane create cracks (angioid streaks) that radiate out from the optic nerve. Angioid streaks themselves do not cause distortion of vision, even if they cross into the foveal area. This symptom is present in almost all PXE ...
Pseudoxanthoma elasticum is a hereditary connective tissue disease related to a mutation in the ABCC6 gene located on chromosome 16p13.1, that encodes the multidrug resistance protein 6 (MRP6), which is one of the family of adenosine triphosphate-dependent membrane transport proteins, which are mostly expressed in the liver and kidneys. Two types of inheritance have been described: autosomal recessive in 90% of the cases and autosomal dominant, much rarer. Mutation in the ABCC6 gene provokes an absence of MRP6, which leads to an accumulation of substances with a high affinity for elastic tissues, resulting in the distortion of calcium deposits and fragmentation of elastic fibers.. Cutaneous manifestations include asymptomatic yellowish papules distributed symmetrically from the start of the neck that can extend to the flexure area. Although not pathognomonic, a characteristic ocular finding is the presence of angioid streaks that represent calcium deposits on the Bruch membrane. They can cause ...

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum is a disease whom frequency is estimated about 1/50000 to 1/100 000. There is a female preponderance with a sex-ratio of 2:1. PXE is transmitted according either to an autosomal dominant mode or to an autosomal recessive one. Mutations in the ABCC6 gene on chromosome 16p13.1 have recently been identified causing PXE. The elastic fibers slowly become mineralized mainly in the skin, the eyes, and the cardiovascular system. PXE is a multisystem disease that includes a spectrum of clinical manifestations affecting the skin, the eye or the cardiovascular system as well as other tissues. It can be responsible for severe and life threatening complications. Skin changes are usually the first manifestations and begin in early childhood. The vital prognosis of PXE depends on the severity of the cardiovascular lesions that could be responsible for sudden death in children and young adults.. Ocular manifestations are quite constant and include chorioretinal scarring, pigmentary ...

One embodiment provides a gaming system providing a multiple streak game associated with a base or primary wagering game. The multiple streak game includes a multiple streak having a multiple streak continuation condition and a single streak having a single streak continuation condition. The multiple streak is initially the active streak. If an outcome a play of the base or primary wagering game satisfies the multiple streak continuation condition, the multiple streak remains the active streak and the player may win an award. If the outcome does not satisfy the multiple streak continuation condition but satisfies the single streak continuation condition, the multiple streak ends, the at least one single streak is set as the active streak, and the player may win an award. If the outcome does not satisfy either the multiple streak continuation condition or the at least one single streak continuation condition, the multiple streak game ends.
A patient first presents to a physician with perfectly symmetric PXE skin lesions on the outer neck. These lesions are without symptoms but are of cosmetic concern. The manifestation of PXE on the skin is very distinctive. Small, yellow papules 1-5mm in diameter form in a linear pattern. The skin takes on a plucked chicken appearance. As the disease progresses other symptoms may occur like gastrointestinal bleeding, high blood pressure, chest pain, and blood in the urine.. The cause of PXE is the result of a mutation in a protein that is most abundant in the kidney and liver cells. It is not understood why this would lead to abnormalities in other organs.. Diagnosis is made on clinical findings and several lab tests. A physician may order a simple blood test, a urinalysis, and stool screen. A biopsy of the lesion in question may also be ordered.. Many of the changes that occur with PXE are irreversible but preventive measures may be taken to minimize the disease course. The sagging folds of ...
When we tried to ascertain the presence of claudication, the patient reported burning pain in both calves during ongoing and strenuous physical exercise, such as rapid walking for more than 1000 meters, with immediate relief at rest. He first noticed these symptoms when he was about 16 years old, and since then the symptoms have remained constant. He denied the presence of chest pain at rest or on exertion and reported no abdominal symptoms. He started to smoke few cigarettes a day 4 years before presentation. He denied the presence of arterial hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes. Because of acne-like skin lesion on the neck, a skin biopsy had been performed 14 years earlier. His parents, 4 siblings, wife, and 2 children (2 and 4 years of age) were to his knowledge devoid of any major disease. Physical examination revealed nonpalpable popliteal, posterior tibial, and dorsalis pedis pulses on both sides. Radial and femoral pulses were palpable. No trophic skin changes of the lower limbs ...
Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a genetic disease considered as a paradigm of ectopic mineralization disorders, being characterized by multisystem clinical manifestations due to progressive calcification of skin, eyes, and the cardiovascular system, resembling an age-related phenotype. Although fibroblasts do not express the pathogenic ABCC6 gene, nevertheless these cells are still under investigation because they regulate connective tissue homeostasis, generating the arena where cells and extracellular matrix components can promote pathologic calcification and where activation of pro-osteogenic factors can be associated to pathways involving mitochondrial metabolism. The aim of the present study was to integrate structural and bioenergenetic features to deeply investigate mitochondria from control and from PXE fibroblasts cultured in standard conditions and to explore the role of mitochondria in the development of the PXE fibroblasts pathologic phenotype. Proteomic, biochemical, and ...

Diseases such as pseudoxanthoma elasticum are hallmarked by calcification of soft tissues. In order to prevent and remove these unwanted calcifications, scientists are searching for the essential ingredients that cause the calcifications to occur.

This guy is my hero. He has the longest current running streak in America. As of February 25, 2016, the United States Running Streak Association reports the length of Sutherlands running streak as 17077 days (46.75 years). In addition to his amazing running streak, Jon has had a pretty colorful life. According to this article on ESPN, after running in college (at which time he began his running streak), Sutherland has worked in the rock and roll music industry, hes been a writer, and hes been a high school track coach. He has kept his running streak going through hectic schedules, broke bones, and torn muscles. Throughout all these 17077 days, Jon has run at least a mile a day, every day.. One reason I love to read about Jon Sutherland is that the success of his running streak defies all the conventional, overly cautious running wisdom. Unlike a great number of American runners, Sutherland runs without fear. Runners are told by doctors, physical therapists, and all manner of medical and ...
Randy Winn didnt have the blues over losing his 20-game hitting streak Tuesday night, even though it was the eighth longest since the Giants moved to San Francisco in 1958 and the longest by a switch hitter over that four-decade span. Winn said he was lucky to get as far as he did. On May 11, he didnt start because of a sore back but entered as a defensive replacement and reached on a bunt single to push his streak to 12 games.. He chopped an infield single against Roy Oswalt in Houston on May 17 to make it 16 consecutive games.. The streak didnt survive a second encounter with Oswalt, though. Winn grounded out three times, struck out in the seventh and was stranded in the on-deck circle in the eighth.. He pitched me pretty tough, Winn said. The last at-bat, I got a couple pitches to hit and I fouled them off. Before that, he didnt give me a whole lot.. Winn batted .388 during his streak, which was the longest by a Giant since Robby Thompson had a 21-game streak in 1993. Previously, the ...
It looks like you streaked several times from the same sample of yeast, and that there was a bit too much liquid in each streak (they resemble puddles). The liquid should be nearly invisible on your when applied to the plate. Also the plate surface should be a bit dry, so liquid is absorbed quickly.. The streaking technique is important too: the plate in the second picture was streak at least twice, but yeast was only added once. They dipped the inoculating loop in the yeast sample for the streak on the left, then the loop was sterilized and used for the second streak on the right - without adding any more yeast. The yeast in the right streak came from the streak on the left. Many people will repeat the steak & sterilize steps 4 or 5 times as they work around the plate, spread the yeast thinner and thinner. I also suspect that the first streak plate in second picture was streaked over again, to get the single cell colonies between the heavy streaks. This page from the Maltose Falcons provides a ...
Sudden growth on streak plates - posted in Microbiology: Hi, Im currently trying to isolate bacteria in pure culture from sponge samples.

The streak is over. Well, that didnt take long. I made it 26 days straight for my run-streak. My best streaking attempt was 101 days. This time, I thought I would make it to January 1st (39 days), then decide whether to continue. Guess I dont need to make that decision now! Im not streaking. Its over. And I feel good about it.
