Morphometric analysis of Bruch's membrane, the choriocapillaris, and the choroid in aging.
PURPOSE To quantify changes in choriocapillary density and in thickness of Bruch's membrane, the chhorocapillaris, and the choroid in 95 unpaired, histologically normal human maculae aged 6 to 100 years and in 25 Maculae with advanced age-related macular degeneration. Expand

Late degradation tissue response to poly(L-lactide) bone plates and screws.
Patients with fractures of the zygomatic bone were treated with high molecular weight poly(L-lactic) acid (PLLA) bone plates and screws. Three years after implantation four patients returned to ourExpand

Histologic features of the early stages of age-related macular degeneration. A statistical analysis.
The age distribution, frequency, and correlation among histologic macular changes, including formation of a basal laminar deposit, drusen, and thickening and calcification of Bruch's membrane, were studied by light microscopy. Expand

Early stages of age-related macular degeneration: an immunofluorescence and electron microscopy study.
In subretinal neovascularisation capillaries originating from the choriocapillaris must cross Bruch's membrane to reach the subretinal pigment epithelial space. Thus gaps in Bruch's membrane have toExpand

Foreign body reactions to resorbable poly(L-lactide) bone plates and screws used for the fixation of unstable zygomatic fractures.
In a previous article in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the initial results of treating 10 patients with solitary, unstable, displaced zygomatic fractures using resorbableExpand

Idiopathic infantile arterial calcification in siblings: radiologic diagnosis and successful treatment.
Idiopathic infantile arterial calcification is a disorder of unknown etiology manifested by widespread arterial calcification. This usually leads to early death from coronary artery occlusion. In 12Expand

Transglutaminase catalyzes differential crosslinking of small heat shock proteins and amyloid‐β
Crosslinking of proteins by tissue transglutaminase (tTG) is enhanced in amyloid (Aβ) deposits characteristic of Alzheimer's disease and sporadic inclusion body myositis. Small heat shock proteinsExpand

Polysaccharide localization, coccolith formation, and Golgi dynamics in the coccolithophorid Hymenomonas carterae.
The periodic acid-thiocarbohydrazide-silver proteinate staining technique according to Thiéry (1967) was employed for visualization of the ultrastructural localization of polysaccharides in theExpand

In vivo degradation and biocompatibility study of in vitro pre-degraded as-polymerized polyactide particles.
The degradation of high molecular weight as-polymerized poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) is very slow; it takes more than 5.6 yr for total resorption. Moreover, the degradation products of as-polymerized PLLAExpand

Increased prevalence of disciform macular degeneration after cataract extraction with implantation of an intraocular lens.
After cataract extraction with implantation of an intraocular lens the increased transmission of ultraviolet and blue light may accelerate the development of age-related macular degeneration byExpand
