OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effects of topical cyclosporine A (CsA) 0.05% (Restasis) on the signs and symptoms of dry eye, on apoptosis, and on MMP-9 expression in conjunctiva epithelial cells in thyroid orbitopathy (TO)-related dry eye patients. METHODS Prospective, clinical study. Twenty-four eyes of 12 consecutive TO patients with dry eye findings(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the tear function tests and the ocular surface damage in Graves' disease (GD) patients either with or without thyroid associated orbitopathy (TAO). METHODS Forty-two eyes of 21 randomly selected patients with GD, and 30 eyes of 15 healthy subjects were included in this prospective study. The presence of TAO was evaluated clinically.(More)
The objective was to compare the bone height and bone density measurements of implant recipient sites by panoramic radiography and computed tomography. Thirty-seven sites of 21 patients were evaluated using both panoramic radiography and computed tomography. The bone height was measured as the vertical distance from the alveolar crest to the closest(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to compare ocular wavefront aberrations for pupil diameters of 4 mm and 6 mm, and contrast sensitivity, in eyes with AcrySof IQ and AcrySof Natural intraocular lenses (IOLs). METHODS Sixty eyes of 60 patients were enrolled in this prospective randomized study. After phacoemulsification the eyes received either AcrySof IQ SN60WF or(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, etiology and risk factors for mortality of patients with nosocomial candidemia. SUBJECTS AND METHODS This observational study was performed at Haydarpasa Numune Training and Research Hospital, a tertiary care hospital with 750 beds, between the years 2004 and 2007. Fifty defined cases with a(More)
Fourteen normal volunteers with no history suggesting previous or current knee pathology underwent axial computed tomographic examination of the patellofemoral joint. There were 11 men and 3 women, whose ages ranged from 10 to 46 years (average 25 years). Axial images were obtained at 0 degrees, 10 degrees, 20 degrees, 30 degrees, 40 degrees, and 60 degrees(More)
PURPOSE To compare the safety, efficacy, and functionality of half-moon supracapsular phacoemulsification, a variation of the nucleofractis technique, with those of the stop-and-chop technique. SETTING Atatürk Training and Research Hospital, 2nd Ophthalmology Department, Ankara, Turkey. METHODS This prospective randomized study comprised 100 eyes having(More)
Thirty-eight knees of 26 patients with anterior knee pain (12 bilateral) were included in the study. There were 22 women and 4 men, and their average age was 29 years. Axial computed tomography (CT) examination of both knees were done at 0 degrees, 10 degrees, 20 degrees, 30 degrees, 40 degrees and 60 degrees of flexion with and without muscle contraction.(More)
Many nucleofractis techniques introduced to date have both advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, the search for the most effective, functional, and safest technique continues. The half-moon supracapsular phacoemulsification technique, which the authors define as a new method, is a hybrid technique derived from both chopping and supracapsular techniques.(More)
