PURPOSE To investigate the rate and the degree of the ocular hypertensive response to dexamethasone ointment in children undergoing eyelid surgery. METHODS Dexamethasone ointment (Dexcosil) was applied three times a day for the first week and twice a day for the second to third week postoperatively to children undergoing epiblepharon surgery. Intraocular(More)

The palladium-catalyzed diacetoxylation and trifluoromethanesulfonic acid-catalyzed diacetoxylation using inexpensive and environmentally friendly hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid were successfully conducted with the help of microchemical technology. Excellent yield and selectivity were achieved in significantly shortened reaction times without the(More)
Statistical dependence between failure modes induces a difficulty in evaluating structural reliability. Instead, the dependence is often ignored and the sum of individual reliabilities has been used as a conservative approximation. However, it is not well known that the error of ignoring dependence between failure modes depends on the level of reliability.(More)
