PURPOSE To identify whether histopathologic presence of neovascularization is predictive for allograft failure following penetrating keratoplasty for herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis. METHODS Retrospective, interventional case series of 62 consecutive patients with HSV keratitis who underwent penetrating keratoplasty at the Kellogg Eye Center between(More)
PURPOSE To identify histopathologic features predictive for adverse allograft outcomes following penetrating keratoplasty for herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis. METHODS Retrospective, interventional case series of 62 consecutive patients with HSV keratitis who underwent penetrating keratoplasty at the Kellogg Eye Center from 1990 through 2000. A(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the association between ischemic times, cytokines-interleukin (IL)-6, IL-1b, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, sIL-2r, IL-8, and IL-10-and alterations in gaseous exchange. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study of 42 orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) recipients examined ischemic times and respiratory variables(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify whether histopathologic and immunoassay biomarkers of inflammation are predictive for allograft rejection after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) for herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis. DESIGN Retrospective, interventional case series with prospective component of pathologic evaluation of frozen tissue. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-two(More)
PURPOSE To describe a subclass of venous malformations of the orbit whose hemodynamic properties make them ideal for treatment with the technique of intraoperative embolization using cyanoacrylate glue followed by direct surgical excision. METHODS A retrospective, noncomparative clinical study of 3 patients with "low-outflow" venous lesions of the(More)
BACKGROUND The present study sought to identify whether there were higher inflammatory cytokine levels in blood samples drawn from the pulmonary artery, radial artery, portal vein, or reperfused graft during each transplantation phase to determine the best site. METHODS We examined 39 consecutive patients undergoing liver transplantation for their blood(More)
