Three rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) performed a simultaneous chaining task in which stimuli had to be sorted according to their visual properties. Each stimulus could vary independently along two dimensions (luminosity and radius), and a cue indicating which dimension to sort by was random trial to trial. These rapid and unpredictable changes constitute a(More)
OBJECTIVE An overabundance of bacteria in the chronic wound plays a significant role in the decreased ability for primary closure. One means of decreasing the bioburden in a wound is to operatively debride the wound for wound bed optimization prior to application of other therapy, such as Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT). We undertook a prospective(More)
OBJECTIVE It is commonly believed that sharp surgical debridement provides adequate bacteria control for local wound beds, despite limited supporting scientific evidence. We undertook a prospective study to evaluate the reduction in planktonic bacteria pre- and post-operative debridement in critically colonised wounds. METHOD Twelve patients,(More)
OBJECTIVE Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has previously been shown to be effective in closing diabetic foot wounds that have undergone amputation over a 16-week period. For patients with plantar foot wounds, NPWT is a key therapy. An alternative NPWT with and without a novel soft, flexible port system needs to be evaluated for its comparable(More)
PURPOSE The study was performed to study the effect of cycloplegia on anterior chamber depth (ACD) in cataract eyes. One instrument (Lenstar) was used for all measurements. METHODS Anterior chamber depth calculations were taken with the Lenstar in cataract eyes with a mean age of 71.9±8.8 years before instilling cycloplegic drops. Two drops of Tropicamide(More)
A 53-year-old woman presented with a 1-month history of decreased vision and progressive left periorbital fullness. Exam and radiography confirmed a left lacrimal gland mass causing mass effect on the globe and a compressive optic neuropathy. Orbitotomy with excisional biopsy confirmed carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma with epithelial and myoepithelial(More)
