AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of this randomized and double blinded pilot clinical trial was to investigate the anti-diabetic efficacy of the Rauvolfia-Citrus (RC) tea in humans. We have earlier shown that a combination of calorie-restriction and chronic administration of the RC tea to the genetic diabetic (BKS-db) mice resulted in the normalization of blood(More)
The clinicopathological characteristics of 343 naevi of the conjunctiva were studied. A significant increase in the number of naevi excised per annum was observed. This may have been caused by an increased exposure to actinic rays. Approximately even distribution in the three main locations: caruncle, limbal area and eyeball, was found. Intrastromal naevi(More)
PURPOSE To compare the ability of cohesive and dispersive ophthalmic viscoelastic devices (OVDs) to protect the corneal endothelium following in-the-bag phacoemulsification with implantation of a foldable posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS In a prospective single-masked randomized study, 60 eyes of 60 cataract patients were assigned to(More)
Intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS) during cataract surgery is characterized by iris fluttering, iris prolapse towards the incisions, and a progressive pupillary constriction leading to high rates of complications. The syndrome has been reported following the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia with α-1(a) adrenergic receptor inhibitors,(More)
In Denmark the number of cataract extractions has increased to 350% from 1980 to 1991. During the same period the elderly population at risk has only increased to 117%, and thus cannot account for the large increase in the number of extractions. In order to investigate whether more comprehensive clinical indications could be a possible explanation, we(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe international variation in anesthesia care and monitoring during cataract surgery and to discuss its implications for cost and safety. METHODS A standardized questionnaire was sent to random samples of ophthalmologists in the United States, Canada, and Barcelona, Spain, and to all ophthalmologists in Denmark. The survey was(More)
The clinicopathological characteristics of 343 naevi of the conjunctiva were studied. A significant increase in the number of naevi excised per year was observed. This may have been caused by an increased exposure to actinic rays. An approximately even distribution was found between the three main locations: caruncle, limbal area and eye ball. Intrastromal(More)
This Danish multicenter study was undertaken to evaluate current indications for cataract extraction and to compare the heath status among patients enlisted for cataract surgery with that reported for the background population. A consecutive sample of 290 patients from all ophthalmic hospital departments in Denmark was examined and interviewed prior to(More)
