Transforming growth factor (TGF)-alpha, epidermal growth factor (EGF), and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) addition to quiescent, confluent monolayers of rabbit renal proximal tubule cells in primary culture stimulated [3H]thymidine incorporation. TGF-alpha and EGF promoted a 14-fold rise in thymidine incorporation over control levels with half-maximal(More)
The chicken lateral spiriform nucleus (Spl) receives its major input from the paleostriatum primitivum of the forebrain, projects almost exclusively upon the optic tectum, but receives no projections from the tectum. In the present study we show that not only do tectal ablations reduce the volume of the Spl, the cross-sectional area, and the number of Spl(More)
UNLABELLED The capsular tension ring (CTR) is a useful device for managing a zonular dialysis. However, insertion of the CTR has potential complications. The CTR can damage zonular fibers during deployment into the capsular bag. Also, the angle and point of initial contact of the CTR with the capsular bag relative to the orientation of the dialysis must be(More)
UNLABELLED An anterior zonulotomy technique to rescue a capsulorhexis tear-out is described. The technique uses microsurgical instruments that are capable of performing microprocedures within the confines of the anterior chamber. The anterior zonulotomy releases the tractional impediment caused by the anterior zonular fibers, enabling the surgeon to use(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study are to define the various stages of capsular contraction syndrome (CCS) and its effect on refractive error with hinge-based accommodating intraocular lenses (IOLs) and to describe a systematic approach for the management of the different stages of CCS. METHODS Hinge-based accommodative IOLs function via flexible hinges that(More)
