PURPOSE To induce chronic intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation in rat eyes by circumlimbal suture. METHODS Anesthetized (isoflurane) Long-Evans rats underwent unilateral circumlimbal suture implantation while the fellow eyes served as untreated controls (n = 15). A sham group (n = 8) received the same procedure except that the suture was loosely tied.(More)
In this study, we developed a CT-based computer-assisted pre-operative planning and simulating system for the calcaneal osteotomy by integrating different software's function. This system uses the full-scaled 3D reverse engineering technique in designing and developing preoperative planning modules for the calcaneal osteotomy surgery. The planning system(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the contribution of matrix degradation in the two-layer avian sclera to the development of myopia. METHODS Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) was used to inhibit chick scleral collagen degradation with (3)H-proline, a marker for this effect. Ex vivo scleral culture experiments confirmed TIMP-2 doses for in vivo(More)
