PURPOSE The aim of this study was to identify the presence of collagen-binding integrin subunits in human scleral fibroblasts (HSFs) and investigate their actual functions in maintaining the mechanical creep properties of the HSFs-seeded collagen matrix. METHODS Primary HSFs were cultured in vitro. Reverse- transcription PCR was used to detect mRNA(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the relationship between unilateral congenital ptosis in patients older than eight years and their refractive state and spherical equivalent refraction (SER). METHODS The study involved a review of the clinical records of 85 patients admitted to the First Affiliated Hospital, Sun Yat-sen(More)
Both diabetes and periodontal disease are prevalent in China. Poor oral hygiene practice is the major cause of periodontal disease. An association between oral hygiene practice and blood glucose level was reported in individuals with diabetes, but not in the general population. We examined the association in a population-based random survey recruiting 2,105(More)
PURPOSE Fibulin-1 (FBLN1) mRNA is expressed in human sclera and is an important adhesion modulatory protein that can affect cell-matrix interactions and tissue remodeling. Scleral remodeling is influenced by all-trans retinoic acid (RA). Our purpose was to confirm the presence of fibulin-1 protein in guinea pig sclera and investigate the effect of RA on the(More)
PURPOSE To describe a strategy for reducing the risk of posterior dislocation of a fluocinolone implant during exchange or removal. DESIGN Case report and in vitro model. METHODS Description of a surgical case and an in vitro experiment evaluating the role of infusion pressure in maintaining implant stability in surgery. RESULTS Use of an elevated(More)
AIMS To characterise the clinical features of human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-B27+acute anterior uveitis (AAU) patients with or without ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and investigate the retinal vascular involvement in these patients. METHODS A total of 1056 HLA-B27+ AAU patients (1525 eyes) were retrospectively studied from April 2008 to February 2016.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the optimal strategy for surgical management of traumatic cataract with posterior capsular rupture. METHODS We describe four cases of traumatic cataract with posterior capsular rupture and an in vitro model built to evaluate the optimal infusion pressure during surgery. RESULTS All patients underwent cataract surgery. By using an(More)
