Corneal neovascularization is a serious condition that can lead to a profound decline in vision. The abnormal vessels block light, cause corneal scarring, compromise visual acuity, and may lead to inflammation and edema. Corneal neovascularization occurs when the balance between angiogenic and antiangiogenic factors is tipped toward angiogenic molecules.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate our experience with treatment of giant arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs) involving the renal and visceral vasculature and assess outcomes. METHODS Clinical data from 12 consecutive patients (10 women; median age 58 years, range 37-79) undergoing intervention for 14 giant renal/visceral AVFs over a 15-year period (1994-2008) were(More)
This paper investigates two different temporal finite element techniques, a multiple element (h-version) and single element (p-version) method, to analyze the stability of a system with a time-periodic coefficient and a time delay. The representative problem, known as the delayed damped Mathieu equation, is chosen to illustrate the combined effect of a time(More)
BACKGROUND Children with allergic disease have multiple risk factors for accidental injuries. OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of injuries requiring medical treatment in US children with allergic disease. METHODS The authors analyzed data from the 2007 to 2008 National Survey of Children's Health, including a nationally representative sample of(More)
Sleep disturbances are associated with poor health outcomes in adults. However, little is known about the sleep disturbances that occur in adult eczema. We studied the association between adult eczema and sleep disturbance and their impact on overall health and health care utilization. We used the 2012 National Health Interview Survey, a cross-sectional(More)
Over a million people died from road traffic injuries (RTI) globally in the year 2000 and as many as 50 million were injured. Yet there has been little work focused on the South Asia region, let alone the vulnerable segments of population such as children and adolescents. This study aims at measuring the burden of disease caused by urban road traffic(More)
Corneal lymphangiogenesis is the extension of lymphatic vessels into the normally alymphatic cornea, a process that compromises the cornea's immune-privileged state and facilitates herpetic stromal keratitis (HSK). HSK results most commonly from infection by herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) and is characterized by immune- and inflammation-mediated damage to(More)
Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) have become popular for a range of indications in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Though PICCs are generally safe, they can be associated with a variety of complications. We present here a case with embolic strokes due to inadvertent arterial placement of PICC, an uncommon but potentially(More)
IMPORTANCE Adults with eczema have multiple risk factors for accidental injury. However, little is known about the risk of injury in adult patients with eczema. OBJECTIVE To determine whether adult eczema is associated with an increased risk of injury. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS A prospective questionnaire-based study using the 2012 National(More)
