In a masked investigation, tear lipid layer structure and non-invasive break-up time (NIBUT) of both eyes of 40 normal subjects were assessed with the Keeler Tearscope after unilateral manual expression of meibomian fluid from the lower lid. The HIRCAL grid (modified keratometer mire) provided the additional measure of tear thinning time (TTT). Twenty(More)
AIMS To determine the repeatability of measurement of the corneal sensation threshold using the Non-Contact Corneal Aesthesiometer (NCCA); to evaluate the effect of the air-jet diameter and stimulus duration on the threshold; and to compare the sensation thresholds found with the NCCA and with the Cochet-Bonnet Aesthesiometer (C-BA), on the same group of(More)
Shunt surgery is the usual treatment for infantile hydrocephalus, but its precise effects on ventricles and cortex are not well understood. Infant H-Tx rats with inherited hydrocephalus, which have progressive enlargement of the lateral ventricles and thinned cerebral cortex, have been used to study the effect of ventriculosubcutaneous shunts by(More)
Classification is important problem in data mining. Given a data set, classifier generates meaningful description for each class. Decision trees are most effective and widely used classification methods. There are several algorithms for induction of decision trees. These trees are first induced and then prune subtrees with subsequent pruning phase to(More)
OBJECTIVE In an effort to improve patient confidentiality as well as cosmesis, the authors have stopped shaving for all intracranial procedures. The objective was to determine whether this lack of shaving increased the postoperative infection rate. DESIGN A retrospective study was performed comparing all intracranial surgical procedures performed in the(More)
Background Aggressive intravenous fluid replacement regimens are traditionally employed with the intention of protecting patients from perioperative decreases in renal blood flow. In contrast to these regimens, Enhanced Recovery Pathways (ERPs) often employ in-traoperative goal-directed fluid therapy and postoperative fluid restriction with permissive(More)
