Modulated (frequency-domain) infrared photothermal radiometry (PTR) is used as a dynamic quantitative dental inspection tool complementary to modulated luminescence (LM) to quantify sound enamel or dentin. A dynamic high-spatial-resolution experimental imaging setup, which can provide simultaneous measurements of laser-induced modulated PTR and LM signals(More)
83 cases (97 eyes) of keratoplasty after chemical corneal injury were followed up for a mean 14 months with the results that 21 (21.6%) grafts were transparent and 76 (78.4%) opaque or semitransparent. The success rate depended on the severity of the chemical injury; it was 87.5% for type A corneal scarring and 15.7% for type B. The causes of graft failure(More)
Agitation, restlessness, and aggression are frequent neurobehavioural sequelae in the early stages of recovery from traumatic brain injury (TBI). These behavioural symptoms disrupt patient care and impede rehabilitation efforts. We review the current literature (1985 onwards) examining the pharmacological management of post-TBI agitation in both acute and(More)
An amplitude-sensitive optical heterodyne polarimeter was set up to monitor noninvasively the aqueous glucose concentration in a rabbit's eye. A Zeeman laser in conjunction with a Glan-Thompson analyzer was used to generate an optical heterodyne signal. The amplitude of the heterodyne signal linearly related to the optical rotation angle of the aqueous(More)
Coupled resonator filters designed using a single-layer coupler require coupling materials with an acoustic impedance less than 5.0 MRayl. Carbon-doped oxide, with an acoustic impedance of 4.8 MRayl and an acoustic attenuation of 200 to 600 dB/cm at 1 GHz, can be used as a single-layer coupler to produce a competitive 2-stage coupled resonator filter for(More)
In situ high-pressure x-ray diffraction, low-temperature resistivity, and magnetization experiments were performed on a La(32)Ce(32)Al(16)Ni(5)Cu(15) bulk metallic glass (BMG). A sudden change in compressibility at approximately 14 GPa and a rapid increase of resistivity at approximately 12 K were detected, whereas magnetic phase transformation and magnetic(More)
Keratoplasty was performed on 3482 eyes from 1965 to 1986 in our hospital. Five eyes (0.14%) were infected in the early postoperative period. Two eyes had endophthalmitis. These seven eyes were operated on again and with local and systemic antibiotics treated as well. Followed up for 36 days to 7 years, six eyes remained safe (5 eyes transparent and 1 eye(More)

The chief causes of corneal blindness was found to be corneal inflammatory diseases and injury in 83.4% of the 3,499 cases (3,993 eyes) of corneal blindness that presented themselves during 1983-1985 at the authors' hospital. The important diseases in order of frequency were herpes simplex keratitis (42.8%), bacterial keratitis (17.4%), corneal injuries(More)
166 patients of corneal perforation from HSK, suppurative corneal ulcer and chemical or thermal burn were treated by penetrating keratoplasty. In the group of HSK, 69.8% of the grafts remained transparent and vision was restored to 0.05-1.0 in 81 cases (69.8); in the group of suppurative corneal ulcer, 40% of the grafts were transparent and vision was(More)
