In 16 cases with the worm in anterior chamber (AC), paracentesis was performed through modified clear corneal stab incision using a 2.8 mm keratome. In one case of worm in vitreous, paracentesis was performed through pars...

In Germany, the surgical removal of as much vitreous as possible (vitrectomy) is a common treatment of equine recurrent uveitis (ERU). Intraocular leptospiral infection has been found to be the reason for an immune-mediated reaction which finally causes the typical signs of ERU. Inflammatory...

Abstract

Cyclosporine A (CsA) is a potent immunosuppressive drug which is used in the therapy of equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) in form of a suprachoroidal CsA-implant which achieves high drug concentrations in the vitreous. This should be particularly effective in the Appaloosa horse which shows a special...

Abstract

The effects of an intravitreal device releasing cyclosporine A (CsA) on recurrent inflammatory episodes in experimental uveitis in horses is studied. Nine normal horses were immunized peripherally with H37RA-mTB antigen twice, then intravitreally given 25 µg of H37RA-mTB antigen in the right eye...

Abstract

Vitrectomy was performed in 12 horses with chronic ERU. At follow-up examinations of 11 operated eyes, 9 had normal i.o. pressure. The vitreous chambers were clear in 9 cases, 2 contained only small floaters. Two eyes with preoperative posterior synechia had subnormal i.o. pressure. No recurrences...
