During retrospective and prospective studies, we attempted to determine the clinical characteristics, treatment, and visual outcome of patients with pars planitis and to evaluate the association between pars planitis and multiple sclerosis (MS). The retrospective study included 44 patients with pars planitis, who had been examined between October 1986 and(More)
PURPOSE To develop an experimental animal model of corneal haze following photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). METHODS Fifteen Iber Braun hens underwent unilateral PRK for -9.00 D of myopia. The animals were sacrificed at 1, 3, and 6 months postoperatively, and light microscopy was performed. RESULTS Slit-lamp microscopy showed haze in the PRK-treated(More)
PURPOSE The authors evaluate logistic discriminant analysis as a method for interpreting visual field results in initial stages of several ophthalmic diseases. METHODS The authors retrospectively studied the visual field defects of 96 patients with early glaucomatous damage and prospectively studied 84 subjects with normal eyes (n = 28), cataracts (n =(More)
PURPOSE Conjunctival impression cytology (CIC) samples were used to determine the mean and normal range of mRNA levels of human MUC1, MUC2, MUC4, MUC5AC, and MUC7 mucin genes. METHODS Real time PCR was performed to determine normal mRNA levels in CIC samples of 24 male and 19 female healthy donors. Correlation coefficients between gene expression levels(More)
PURPOSE To identify clinical risk factors for development of postoperative PVR, to determine the incidence of this complication and its time of onset by a prospective multicentric study. METHODS A multicentric and prospective study of 223 patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) was conducted. Logistic regression analysis was used to identify(More)
To establish if olfactory bulb sensitivity to functional deprivation is related to the degree of development at birth, we studied the effects of surgical closure of one naris in the gerbil olfactory bulb development. The naris closure was performed at three different ages: at birth, P7 and P14 and maintained for 30 or 60 days. In coronal sections we(More)
PURPOSE To analyse the putative toxic effect of three commercially available non-preserved artificial tear formulations on in vitro human conjunctival cells. MATERIAL AND METHOD A conjunctival human epithelial cell line was exposed to Cellufresh, Oculotect and Acuolens formulations during 1, 3 and 24 hours. Cytotoxicity was measured by calculating the(More)
Spina bifida is associated with foot deformities, which may lead to foot ulcers, osteomyelitis, and limb amputation. Calcanectomy and Symes amputations have been reported successful in spina bifida. There is lack of evidence for transtibial amputations. This case describes a 27-yr-old woman with L4 level spina bifida who underwent bilateral transtibial(More)
not changed significantly. By means of this agent, hypoxic CFU could be identified in the bone marrow of restrained mice but not in pentobarbitone anaesthetized mice, indicating that the radioprotective effect of pentobarbitone anaesthesia is caused by some mechanism other than hypoxia. We also showed that pentobarbitone prevents the recruitment of resting(More)
