AIM To evaluate the efficacy and safety of replacing latanoprost with another prostaglandin analogue (PGA) in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension requiring additional intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering while on latanoprost. METHODS Prospective, randomised, investigator-masked, multicentre clinical trial. Patients on latanoprost 0.005%(More)
Twenty annular and 12 cruciform pulleys were dissected from four unembalmed fresh cadaveric fingers and stained with haematoxylin and eosin, Verhoeff-van Gieson stain for elastin, alcian blue stain for hyaluronic acid, and a separate stain for S-100 to identify chondroid cells. Three distinct layers were identified in both annular and cruciform pulleys: an(More)
The extensor retinaculum of the wrist has been used for reconstruction of the annular pulleys of the flexor sheath. We examined the histologic structure of the extensor retinaculum and tendon sheath of the wrist and ankle in cadaveric specimens using hematoxylin-eosin and Verhoeff-van Gieson stains to detect elastin and alcian blue to detect hyaluronic(More)
We performed a combined retrospective and prospective study on the utility of obtaining radiographs in patients with trigger finger. Ninety-three patients with a total of 110 involved fingers were reviewed. The average age of the patients was 52 years, and 61% had involvement of their dominant hand. There were 54 women and 39 men. Eighty-four percent of the(More)
Since the mallet finger that is treated with isolated splinting of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint can be moved freely proximal to the DIP joint, we sought to determine whether such motion might cause a tendon gap that could explain the extensor lag that often follows treatment. Experiments were performed on 32 cadaveric fingers with open mallet(More)
