OBJECTIVES Porotic hyperostosis (PH), characterized by porotic lesions on the cranial vault, and cribra orbitalia (CO), a localized appearance of porotic lesions on the roof of the orbits, are relatively common osteological conditions. Their etiology has been the focus of several studies, and an association with anemia has long been suggested. Anemia often(More)
BACKGROUND In a retrospective study corneal sensitivity after keratomileusis in situ and keratomileusis myopica was measured. METHOD 5 points on the cornea were measured with the Draeger aesthesiometer at 18 eyes after keratomileusis myopica and at 66 eyes after keratomileusis in situ. RESULTS The ingrowth of corneal nerve fibres is delayed after(More)
new loop diuretic, in order to investigate its efficacy and to relate the diuretic response with the pretreatment plasma aldosterone concentration. Eleven patients responded to piretanide 12 mg/day (equivalent in potency to 80 mg furosemide); there was no response in nine patients. Both groups were similar with regard to liver function, plasma urea, serum(More)
In a retrospective study corneal sensitivity after refractive autokeratoplasty for correction of myopia was measured. Thirty-eight patients operated on for keratomileusis in situ and 18 patients for keratomileusis myopica were examined with the Draeger esthesiometer between 1 and 23 months after surgery. Three measurements points were on the refractive(More)
