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)
Basis Science launched Advanced Sleep Analysis in January 2014 and became the first wrist-based tracker to detect REM, deep (slow wave), and light Non-REM sleep stages. Advanced Sleep Analysis combines sleep stage, toss-and-turn, sleep duration metrics, and more to provide users with a comprehensive view of their sleep. To further develop and validate the(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)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Aortic dissection generally is an acute catastrophe. Rapid diagnosis is critical. We hypothesized that the quality of history taking contributes to the accuracy of diagnosis in patients with dissection. DESIGN Retrospective chart review of 83 patients, whose diagnosis of aortic dissection was confirmed by autopsy, surgery, CT scan,(More)
The aim of this study was to describe the anatomy of the extensor pollicis brevis tendon, in particular its insertion, in 44 preserved hands from 23 cadavers. We found that only 25% of the tendons were inserted in the conventional way, viz, into the base of the proximal phalanx, and confirmed that the course and insertion of the extensor pollicis brevis(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)
