BACKGROUND To evaluate the indication, visual outcome, and complication rate after implantation of a posterior iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL) during penetrating keratoplasty. METHODS This retrospective study comprised 23 eyes (23 patients) without adequate capsule support undergoing posterior iris-claw aphakic IOL implantation (Verisyse/Artisan)(More)
Purpose Netrin-4, a secreted protein, is found in the basement membrane of blood vessels and acts as a key regulator of angiogenesis. Here we investigated the role of Netrin-4 in the mouse-model of suture-induced corneal hem- and lymphangiogenesis. Methods Corneal hem- and lymphangiogenesis were induced in Netrin-4-deficient (Ntn4-/-) and wild-type (WT)(More)
Netrins are a family of matrix-binding proteins that function as guidance signals. Netrin-4 displays pathologic roles in tumorigenesis and neovascularization. To answer the question whether netrin-4 acts either pro- or anti-angiogenic, angiogenesis in the retina was assessed in Ntn-4(-/-) mice with oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR) and laser-induced(More)
