PURPOSE To study the incidence of and risk factors for postoperative capsular block syndrome (CBS) and propose a new classification based on etiology. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Kyungpook National University Hospital, Daegu, Republic of Korea. METHODS Charts of 1100 eyes of 990 patients who had phacoemulsification and posterior chamber(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and report the efficacy of fibrin glue (FG)-assisted augmented amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) in patients with large corneal perforations. METHODS In a retrospective case series, 10 patients with corneal perforations more than 2 mm in diameter were treated with "FG-assisted augmented AMT." A 5- or 7-ply "augmented amniotic(More)
Horse health has become a major concern with the expansion of horse-related industries and sports; the importance of healthy muscles for horse performance and daily activities is undisputed. Here we generated equine-induced pluripotent stem cells (E-iPSCs) by reprogramming equine adipose-derived stem cells (E-ADSCs) into iPSCs using a polycistronic(More)
PURPOSE Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) harbors high concentrations of growth factors related to the promotion of wound healing. We evaluated the efficacy of PRP eyedrops in the treatment of persistent epithelial defects (PEDs). METHODS Autologous PRP and autologous serum (AS) were prepared from whole blood. The concentrations of transforming growth factor(More)
87-year-old female underwent open reduction of distal femoral fracture and internal fixation with locking compression plate and bone graft. She was operated for ipsilateral proximal femoral fractures and stabilized by intramedullary interlocked nail 5 years ago. She developed stress fracture proximal to locked plate. We inserted Huckstep nail after removal(More)
Traumatic anterior dislocation of the hip is rare. Bilateral traumatic anterior dislocation is an even rarer injury; indeed, only 5 cases have been reported in the English literature. We describe a case of a bilateral traumatic anterior dislocation of the hip and a concomitant unstable lumbar burst fracture following a mechanism of injury distinctly(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of unstable thoracolumbar fractures is controversial regarding short or long segment pedicle screw fixation. Although long level fixation is better, it can decrease one motion segment distally, thus increasing load to lower discs. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 31 unstable thoracolumbar fractures with partial or intact neurology.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the corneal toxicity of intracameral bevacizumab in rabbit eyes and also the effects of intracameral bevacizumab in neovascular glaucoma patients combined with Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Intracameral bevacizumab (1.25 mg/0.05 mL) was injected into 5 eyes of 5 New Zealand white rabbits. A balanced salt(More)
An intraoperative surgical microscope is an essential tool in a neuro- or ophthalmological surgical environment. Yet, it has an inherent limitation to classify subsurface information because it only provides the surface images. To compensate for and assist in this problem, combining the surgical microscope with optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) eye drops in the treatment of recurrent corneal erosions (RCE). METHODS A total of 47 eyes were included in this retrospective study. Clinical records of 20 consecutive patients with RCE who had been treated with conventional lubricant eye drops (conventional treatment group) from June 2006 to(More)
