PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of a lateral tarsoconjunctival flap suspension procedure to improve paralytic eyelid malposition. METHODS Retrospective chart review (with photograph and videographic data) of consecutive patients between 2008 and 2013 with permanent unilateral paralytic eyelid malposition treated with a far lateral tarsoconjunctival flap(More)
Tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI)-induced thyroid dysfunction has been identified as an important but manageable adverse effect of targeted therapy. Several studies have suggested that patients who develop hypothyroidism respond better to TKIs, but this relationship is not well elucidated. We evaluated the relationship between new-onset hypothyroidism and(More)
A central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) can induce an ischemic and hypoxic state with resulting sequelae of macular edema and neovascularization. Many treatment options have been studied. Our review aims to investigate the safety and efficacy of the multiple treatment options of CRVO. A PubMed and Cochrane literature search was performed. Well-controlled(More)

Human NK cells are likely to be important effectors of xenograft rejection. Expression of HLA class I molecules by transfected porcine cells can protect them from human NK cell-mediated lysis; however, this strategy has the potential to augment the anti-graft response by recipient CD8(+) T cells recognizing foreign pig peptides presented by HLA. In this(More)
