AIM To report a novel method to quantify traction applied to the retina using vitreous cutters during pars plana vitrectomy. METHODS Fresh porcine eyes were positioned in a specially developed holder and transfixed to the retinal layers with a wire and the other end fixed to the load cell of a strain gauge. Five separate 20-gauge electrical drive(More)
PURPOSE We hypothesized that reaction times (RTs) for a switch release are faster for hand-controlled than for foot-controlled switches for physiological and anatomical reasons (e.g., nerve conduction speed). The risk of accidental trauma could be reduced if the surgeon reacted quicker and therefore improve the surgical outcome. METHOD We included 47(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to use a novel method to quantify the traction applied to the retina during vitrectomy. METHODS Five 20-gauge electric cutters were used. Fresh porcine eyes were positioned in a specially developed holder and transfixed to the retinal layers with a microwire, and the other end was fixed to the load cell of a strain(More)
The centro-peripheral gradient of development in dopaminergic (DA) amacrine cells of cat retina has been studied by TH immunocytochemical method. Type I of TH immunoreactive neurons is typical DA cell. They reveal a clear centro-peripheral gradient of differentiation and maturation in space and time course during postnatal development. (1) At P1 stage, the(More)
An improved post-embedding immunocytochemical technique was used to examine the coexistence of multi-neuroactive substances in neurons of young cat and newly hatched chicken retinas. We found that two classical neurotransmitters-glycine (Gly) and r-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and one neuropeptide, neurotensin (NT) were located in the amacrine cells of cat and(More)
