We present a clinicopathological analysis of an explanted STAAR model B silicone intraocular lens (IOL) that was sent to the Center for Intraocular Lens Research for evaluation. Extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE), using phacoemulsification and insertion of the silicone IOL, had been accomplished through a 3-mm scleral tunnel incision. The IOL was(More)
We greatly appreciate the comments of Dr. Rutte et al. regarding our recent study on the effectiveness of sexual counseling models in health care [1]. We agree with them that to find a more cost-effective alternative for standard models, such as Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestions, and Intensive Therapy (PLISSIT), we should perform a(More)
The possibility that undesirable visual complications such as glare, halo, monocular diplopia, or other visual aberrations can result from the presence of posterior chamber lens optic edges or such lens elements as positioning holes or loop-optic junctions within the pupillary aperture has received little attention. There is recent clinical evidence that(More)
We illustrate, from the pathologist's viewpoint, the configuration of posterior chamber lens loops within the eye. The final configuration of these loops is often a "C" shape, particularly following capsular fixation. When one or both loops are placed in the ciliary sulcus, where tissue resistance to loop compressive forces is less than in the capsular sac,(More)
We performed clinicopathologic analyses of 28 explanted anterior chamber intraocular lenses (Stableflex). Two factors strongly indicated that this lens can be difficult to remove: (1) the clinical histories obtained from the explanting surgeons who, with few exceptions, stated that removal was extremely difficult; and (2) our scanning electron microscopic(More)
Recombinant murine gamma-interferon (IFN) was tested for its ability to enhance murine polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) fungicidal activity in vitro. PMNs, elicited by intraperitoneal injection of thioglycollate 4 hr prior to collection, were treated with 0.00003-300,000 units of IFN per milliliter for 1 hr prior to challenge with yeast form Blastomyces(More)
Over a period of 27 months, November 1983 to February 1986, 75 eyes obtained postmortem with posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs) were examined at the Center for Intraocular Lens Research, University of Utah Health Sciences Center. These IOLs were studied by histopathological techniques to determine the location of the loops. The most common(More)
OBJECTIVE To statistically evaluate published clinical efficacy data related to the use of pulsed radio frequency energy (PRFE) therapy in 3 clinical applications. BACKGROUND Numerous clinical studies have reported efficacy outcomes for PRFE therapy use in the palliative treatment of both postoperative and nonpostoperative pain and edema, and for its use(More)
OBJECTIVE : The purpose of the study was to evaluate the benefit of using pulsed radiofrequency energy (PRFE) therapy in the treatment of chronic pressure ulcers. DESIGN : A retrospective analysis was performed using case series data from the Provant Wound Registry, which consists of demographic characteristics and wound healing outcomes for patients(More)
