PURPOSE This retrospective study was done to identify risk factors for cataract formation and cataract extraction after penetrating keratoplasty to determine whether a combined procedure (simultaneous cataract extraction with keratoplasty) or penetrating keratoplasty alone should be performed. METHODS Variables from 342 phakic eyes having undergone(More)
Two patients with intraretinal foreign bodies and traumatic cataracts were treated with pars plana lensectomy, vitrectomy, and removal of the foreign body. In each case, it was technically possible to preserve the anterior capsule despite small but obvious rents caused by the foreign body. This allowed support for the placement of a posterior chamber(More)
The objectives were to assess motility, fertilizing capacity, structural integrity, and mitochondrial function in fresh versus frozen-thawed (15% DMSO was used as a cryoprotectant) sperm from red seabream (Pagrus major). Mean (+/-S.D.) rates of motility, fertilization and hatching of frozen-thawed sperm were 81.0+/-5.4, 92.8+/-1.9, and 91.8+/-5.2%,(More)
BACKGROUND The main ingredient of most repellents on the market is DEET, an effective compound that has the disadvantages of toxic reactions as well as damaging effects on plastic and synthetic fabric. DEET alternatives are urgently needed. METHODS The repellent activities of 11 kinds of essential oils were tested against Aedes albopictus Skuse by a(More)
In this paper we present Kratos, an autonomous ground robot capable of static obstacle field navigation and lane following. A sole color stereo camera provides all environmental data. We detect obstacles by generating a 3D point cloud and then searching for nearby points of differing heights, and represent the results as a cost map of the environment. For(More)
