PURPOSE This pilot study investigated whether high-resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) could detect differences in inner retinal layer (IRL), peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), and macular thickness between patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and controls. METHODS Both eyes of patients with PD and age-matched(More)
PURPOSE To report our experience with bilateral placement of dexamethasone 0.7 mg (DEX) sustained-release intravitreal implant in the management of noninfectious posterior uveitis or macular edema secondary to retinal vein occlusion. METHODS A retrospective chart review of patients with bilateral noninfectious posterior uveitis and macular edema secondary(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although the deleterious role of several proinflammatory mediators, including P-selectin, in reperfused stroke is well established, the role of E-selectin has not been fully characterized. METHODS E-selectin mRNA expression was studied at 4, 10, and 24 hours after reperfusion with reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction(More)
PURPOSE Histopathologic studies have reported retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thinning in various neurodegenerative diseases. Attempts to quantify this loss in vivo have relied on time-domain optical coherence tomography (TDOCT), which has low resolution and requires substantial interpolation of data for volume measurements. We hypothesized that the(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationship between retinal ischaemia and the presence of macular oedema (DMO) in patients with diabetic retinopathy (DR) using ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography (UWFA) imaging. METHODS A retrospective review of 122 eyes of 70 treatment-naïve diabetic patients who underwent diagnostic UWFA using the Optos 200Tx imaging(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to assess whether the resolution offered by two different, recently commercially available high-resolution, spectral-domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) instruments allows for detailed anatomic characterization of the critical device-donor cornea interface in eyes implanted with the Boston(More)
PURPOSE Age-related degradation of the elastic lamina in Bruch's membrane may have a permissive effect on the growth of choroidal neovascularization (CNV). This study investigated the influence of defective elastic fiber maintenance in the development of laser-induced CNV. METHODS A mouse lacking lysyl oxidase-like (LOXL)-1, an enzyme essential for(More)
We consider the possibility of automatically modifying the user's viewpoint orientation for the purpose of enhancing the navigation experience. We concentrate on outdoor virtual environments where the terrain is uneven as well as certain cases of indoor at environment floors, respectively on environments where focus-drawing objects and different types of(More)
We present a method to connect VRML and Java components in a web page using EA1 which makes possible to interactively generate and edit VRML meshes. The meshes used are based on regular grids, to provide an interaction and modeling approach that uses the internal semantics of such a mesh by linking the available modeling operations either to single(More)
We present a review of the computer animation literature, mainly concentrating on articulated characters and at least some degree of inter-activity or real time simulation. Advances in different techniques such as key-frame, motion capture (also known as mocap), dynamics, inverse kine-matics (IK), controller systems, and even neural networks are discussed.(More)
