Actively developed horizontal muscle forces and tissue stiffnesses were measured in 29 normal orthophoric volunteer subjects (18 to 33 years old) by means of noninvasive length-tension forceps. Mean active fixation force developed at 50 deg extreme gaze was 26% greater for the medial rectus (74.8 gm) than for the lateral rectus (59.1 gm). The variation of(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Metoclopramide nasal spray, unlike oral tablets, is absorbed even when patients have delayed gastric emptying or nausea and vomiting. We performed a randomized phase 2b study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 10-mg and 14-mg metoclopramide nasal spray vs placebo in patients with diabetes and gastroparesis. METHODS We performed a(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer and a leading cause of death for both men and women in North America. The staging of the CRC at the time of diagnosis is the single most important prognostic factor in determining recurrence and survival. Until 2008, accurate evaluation of CRC stages I and II was based on examination of regional lymph(More)
Fifty-six patients underwent an adjustable rectus muscle recession procedure. This procedure permits the surgeon to enhance or diminish the amount of muscle recession on the evening after surgery or the first postoperative day if cover-testing indicates an inappropriate amount of undercorrection or overcorrection. The adjustable rectus muscle recession(More)
BACKGROUND Delayed gastric emptying symptoms interfere with the absorption of oral medications. Intranasal metoclopramide is being developed as an alternative to oral metoclopramide for patients with diabetic gastroparesis. METHODS To compare the efficacy and safety of metoclopramide nasal spray to oral tablets in diabetic patients with symptoms of(More)
BACKGROUND Current anti-Helicobacter pylori treatment regimens are costly and because of the increasing antibiotic resistance, are becoming ineffective. AIM To evaluate a triple-layer tablet containing 100 mg bismuth subcitrate, 250 mg metronidazole, and 250 mg tetracycline in a single triple-layer tablet. METHODS H. pylori-infected adult patients(More)
A colony of Macaca nemestrina monkeys was screened for naturally occurring strabismus. Thirteen cases of naturally occurring strabismus were documented, 12 esotropes and one exotrope. The characteristics of the strabismus in these monkeys were similar to those of human clinical cases. Four of the affected monkeys showed interocular differences in grating(More)
