Data on the elastic properties of corneal tissue are needed to define the parameters involved in a model for radial keratotomy. Using bovine corneal tissue, we measured stress-strain relationships of tissue at different locations in the cornea. From this data we calculated Young's modulus of elasticity of five specimens at peripheral and central corneal(More)
PURPOSE We studied the efficacy of using radial keratotomy incisions as a surgical method of increasing outflow facility in enucleated bovine eyes. METHODS Each freshly enucleated bovine eye (n = 23) was cannulated to a system measuring the rate of flow into the eyes. Preoperatively, corneal thickness measurements were determined for all treated eyes.(More)
Advances in the life sciences are now closely linked to the availability of new experimental tools that allow for the manipulation of biomolecules and the study of biological processes at the molecular level. In this context, we have optimized a synthesis process to obtain glutathione‐capped fluorescent CdS nanoparticles to specifically (More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Cell therapy in neurological disability after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is in its initial clinical stage. We describe our preliminary clinical experience with three patients with diffuse axonal injury (DAI) who were treated with intrathecal administration of autologous mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs). METHODS Three patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Recent reports have suggested that a secondary effect of radial keratotomy may be a reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP) levels. METHODS In an effort to study the relationship of radial keratotomy to IOP, we compared the mean IOP from the baseline and follow-up visits during 1 year after surgery of operated versus nonoperated eyes of(More)
