The achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in ultracold vapors of alkali atoms has given enormous impulse to the theoretical and experimental study of dilute atomic gases in condensed quantum states inside magnetic traps and optical lattices. This article offers a short survey on mathematical models and theories as well as numerical methods for BEC(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the results of graded decompression of orbital fat and walls in Graves' orbitopathy (GO) considering the degree of proptosis reduction at surgery and preoperative computed tomography (CT) findings. METHODS This is a retrospective interventional case series. Graded orbital fat and wall decompression was performed in 90 orbits of 55(More)
PURPOSE To determine long-term surgical findings and outcomes after vitrectomy for symptomatic lamellar macular holes. METHODS This is a retrospective, consecutive, interventional case series. Sixteen patients (31 eyes) with lamellar macular holes and central visual loss participated in the study. All patients underwent 3-port pars plana vitrectomy with(More)
Intravitreal injection of bevacizumab has been shown to satisfactorily treat retinopathy of prematurity; nevertheless, the safety of antivascular endothelial growth factor therapy in children remains uncertain. We report a patient with bilateral, zone 1, stage 3 plus retinopathy of prematurity who was treated with combined laser photocoagulation and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate an association between the levels of serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)-receptor autoantibodies (TRAbs) and Graves' orbitopathy (GO) activity/severity scores, and compare the performance of three different TRAb assays in assessing the clinical manifestations of GO. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cross-sectional study. Medical records of(More)
PURPOSE We investigated the effects of quercetin on fibrotic markers and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) in primary cells and whole orbital tissues from Graves' orbitopathy (GO). METHODS Orbital fat tissues were harvested from GO for primary cell and tissue cultures during orbital fat decompression. To determine noncytotoxic dose and time of quercetin(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is a possible cause of ocular discomfort in patients wearing an ocular prosthesis, with the paired normal eye used as a control. METHODS Thirty consecutive patients with a unilateral ocular prosthesis completed a questionnaire designed to identify MGD-related ocular symptoms. Both eyelids of(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of placement of the absorbable packing material Nasopore at the anastomosis site of newly formed mucosal flaps on postoperative re-bleeding, discomfort, and on the success rate of dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). METHODS A review of the medical records of patients with primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction that(More)
To evaluate the efficacy of subconjunctival triamcinolone injection for treating upper eyelid retraction caused by thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO). Prospective single blind randomized clinical trial. Patients diagnosed with TAO-associated eyelid retraction and/or swelling <6 months before study onset were randomly assigned to triamcinolone-injected(More)
BACKGROUND Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk) is critical for activation of B cells and myeloid cells. This study aimed to characterize the effects of HM71224, a novel Btk inhibitor, both in vitro and in a mouse model of experimental arthritis. METHODS The kinase inhibition profile of HM71224 was analyzed. The in vitro effects of HM71224 on B cells and(More)
