Bone thickness of the palate for orthodontic mini-implant anchorage in adults.
INTRODUCTION The palate is a suitable site for the placement of orthodontic mini-implants. This study was conducted to assess the bone thickness of the palate to provide a more reliable guide forExpand

Reversal of lamina cribrosa displacement and thickness after trabeculectomy in glaucoma.
PURPOSE To investigate the response of the lamina cribrosa (LC) and prelaminar tissue to glaucoma surgery using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and to determine the factorsExpand

Prevalence of third molar impaction in orthodontic patients treated nonextraction and with extraction of 4 premolars.
The purposes of this study were to confirm that premolar extraction treatment is associated with mesial movement of the molars concomitant with an increase in the eruption space for the third molarsExpand

Ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials induced by air-conducted sound in patients with acute brainstem lesions
OBJECTIVE The ocular vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (oVEMP), a recently documented otolith-ocular reflex, is considered to reflect the central projections of the primary otolithic afferentExpand

Recent structural alteration of the peripheral lamina cribrosa near the location of disc hemorrhage in glaucoma.
PURPOSE We investigated whether disc hemorrhage (DH) is associated with the recent structural alteration of the peripheral lamina cribrosa (LC) as assessed by enhanced depth imaging (EDI)Expand

Three-dimensional evaluation of the lamina cribrosa using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in glaucoma.
PURPOSE To introduce a novel, digital, three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the optic nerve head (ONH) and to use this method to evaluate the 3D configuration of the lamina cribrosa (LC) inExpand

The Effect of Low Glucose Degradation Product Dialysis Solution on Epithelial-To-Mesenchymal Transition in Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis Patients
♦ Background Human peritoneal mesothelial cells (HPMCs) undergo a transition from an epithelial phenotype to a mesenchymal phenotype (EMT) during peritoneal dialysis (PD). That transition may beExpand

Differentiation of parapapillary atrophy using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.
PURPOSE To develop a classification of parapapillary atrophy (PPA) based on its relationship with the location of Bruch's membrane (BM) termination in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients. Expand

Rotational resistance of surface-treated mini-implants.
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that there is no difference in the stability and resistance to rotational moments of early loaded sandblasted and acid-etched (SLA) mini-implants and those ofExpand
