The 2017 EVRS Clinical Study is ENDOPHTHALMITIS

The EVRS is conducting a study on endophthalmitis to determine if the conclusions of the EVS study, published in 1995 but still guiding the treatment by many ophthalmologists, are still valid. Please help us complete this study by submitting your cases.

You can submit your way of treatment, your strategy, your decision-making process in Endophthalmitis. All presentations on this subject will be grouped together in a session and discussed along with the EVRS Endophthalmitis Study results. Every EVRS member is called upon to participate in this study. In doing so, you will not only participate in the largest study ever on Endophthalmitis but also learn a lot about the best strategy for this complicated condition.

Florence is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany and of the Metropolitan City of Florence. It is the most populous city in Tuscany.

Florence was a centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the wealthiest cities of the time. It is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, and has been called "the Athens of the Middle Ages". A turbulent political history includes periods of rule by the powerful Medici family, and numerous religious and republican revolutions. From 1865 to 1871 the city was the capital of the recently established Kingdom of Italy. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. The city is noted for its culture, Renaissance art and architecture and monuments. The city also contains numerous museums and art galleries, such as the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Pitti, and still exerts an influence in the fields of art, culture and politics. Due to Florence's artistic and architectural heritage, it has been ranked by Forbes as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Florence is also an important city in Italian fashion.

 

The Teatro della Pergola is a historic opera house in Florence, Italy. It is located in the centre of the city on the Via della Pergola, from which the theatre takes its name. It was built in 1656 under the patronage of Cardinal Gian Carlo de' Medici to designs by the architect Ferdinando Tacca, son of the sculptor Pietro Tacca; its inaugural production was the opera buffa, Il potestà di Colognole by Jacopo Melani. The opera house, the first to be built with superposed tiers of boxes rather than raked semi-circular seating in the Roman fashion, is considered to be the oldest in Italy, having occupied the same site for more than 350 years. It has two auditoria, the Sala Grande and the Saloncino, a former ballroom located upstairs which has been used as a recital hall since 1804.

 

The Palazzo Vecchio is the town hall of Florence, Italy. It overlooks the Piazza della Signoria with its copy of Michelangelo's David statue as well as the gallery of statues in the adjacent Loggia dei Lanzi.

 

 

Located in the middle of the historic centre of Florence, very close to the Duomo, Piazza Santa Croce and Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Borghese is one of the most striking examples of neoclassic architecture of the tuscan capital. Although it preserves an impressive facade, this building often passes unnoticed, almost suffocated by the anxiety of the road. Once inside, however, the beauty and the pomp are dazzling: the imposing honour staircase leads to the noble floor. The heart of the building is formed by the Mirror Room and the Monumental Gallery (or Reception Hall), which is a true architectural and artistic jewel: two hundred square meters of frescoes, plasters, bas-reliefs, niches, statues, columns and draperies.

 

The Palazzo Pitti is a vast, mainly Renaissance, palace in Florence, Italy. It is situated on the south side of the River Arno, a short distance from the Ponte Vecchio. The core of the present palazzo dates from 1458 and was originally the town residence of Luca Pitti, an ambitious Florentine banker. The palace was bought by the Medici family in 1549 and became the chief residence of the ruling families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. It grew as a great treasure house as later generations amassed paintings, plates, jewelry and luxurious possessions. In the late 18th century, the palazzo was used as a power base by Napoleon, and later served for a brief period as the principal royal palace of the newly united Italy. The palace and its contents were donated to the Italian people by King Victor Emmanuel III in 1919. The palazzo is now the largest museum complex in Florence.
