Photophobia in a blind eye after removal of a progressive orbital optic glioma with denervation Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Optic glioma (OPG) accounts for 4-8% of all brain tumors in children. En-block removal of intraorbital tumor is recommended in cases with disfiguring exophthalmos and impaired vision. Surgical resection of intraorbital optic nerve (ON) poses the risks of permanent ptosis and globe atrophy. We present here the case of a 4-year-old boy with exophthalmos and near blindness due to an intraorbital OPG. Despite chemotherapy he showed progressive ...
Effects of high-intensity interval training on optic nerve head and macular perfusion using optical coherence tomography angiography in healthy adults Vrije Universiteit Brussel
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has been identified to be efficient for increasing health-related fitness in general and in lifestyle-induced chronic diseases such as hypertension, obesity and metabolic syndrome. This study aimed to evaluate HIIT effects on optic nerve head (ONH) and macular perfusion in healthy adults using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA).
METHODS: Fifty-eight healthy ...

One-year optical coherence tomography findings in patients with late and very-late stent thrombosis treated with intravascular imaging guided percutaneous coronary intervention UZBrussel
Patients with late/very-late stent thrombosis (ST) are at high risk of recurrent-ST. The mechanisms of recurrent-ST are largely unknown. The objective is to describe the 1-year optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings of patients suffering from late/very-late ST treated with intravascular imaging guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). All consecutive patients with late/very-late ST undergoing intravascular imaging guided PCI were ...
