PURPOSE The goal of this study was to determine whether the medial rectus muscles of patients with a history of medial rectus underaction or overaction show alterations in the process of satellite cell activation when compared with normal age-matched control muscles. METHODS Medial rectus muscles were obtained with consent from adult patients undergoing(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To compare two intraocular irrigating solutions, Balanced Salt Solution Plus (BSS Plus) versus Lactated Ringer's (Ringer), for the preservation of corneal integrity after phacoemulsification. METHODS 110 patients undergoing phacoemulsification were randomised to either BSS Plus (n=55) or Ringer (n=55) as the irrigating solution. Patients(More)
PURPOSE To study the action of botulinum toxin A on isometric contraction of the medial and lateral rectus muscles in esotropic or exotropic patients. METHODS Isometric contraction in patients with strabismus (exotropic and esotropic) and in volunteers without strabismus was compared 30 days after the use of botulinum toxin A. RESULTS Findings show that(More)

PURPOSE To study the different ways of expressing the force-elongation relationship in medial rectus muscles in esotropia with and without muscular restriction. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty-nine passive force-elongation curves were obtained without restriction (group I, n = 13) and with restriction (group II, n = 10) by means of a manual pachymeter and a(More)
