BACKGROUND s/aims: Staining of internal limiting membrane with indocyanine green (ICG) has been reported to be associated with postoperative atrophic retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) change. Here the authors examined whether removing sodium from the solvent reduces ICG induced RPE cytotoxicity. METHODS Human RPE cells were exposed to ICG (0.25 and 0.025(More)
Cortical dysplasia has a strong clinical association with epilepsy and mental retardation, but the relationship between alterations in cortical structure and function in dysplasia-related disorders is poorly understood. The cerebral cortex of irradiated rats, an experimental model of cortical dysplasia, was studied using cresyl violet-stained sections and(More)
