To review the current literature describing cases of fungal keratitis and endophthalmitis after Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) implantation and to characterize the antifungal activity of 0.01% hypochlorous acid against medically relevant fungi.
This article was published in the following journal.
Keratoprosthetics refer to the replacement of human corneal tissue with an artificially produced exchange product. The most widely implanted keratoprosthesis worldwide is the Boston Type I Keratopros...
To analyse the dynamics of telemetrically measured intraocular pressure (IOP) during year one after implantation of a Boston Keratoprosthesis Type I (BI-KPro) and to compare agreement of telemetric IO...
Glaucoma is the leading cause of vision loss in eyes with Boston Keratoprosthesis (KPro). Glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) have been shown to be effective in controlling glaucoma with KPro. Cicatricia...
This is a phase I/II prospective, randomized, multi-center, double-masked, vehicle-controlled clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of corneal collagen cross-linking the kerato...
The ARGOS-IO pressure sensor is intended to be implanted in the human eye in combination with Boston Keratoprosthesis (BKPro) surgery and to remain in place indefinitely. It is intended to...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the EYEMATE system in patients undergoing concomitant implantation of a BKPro type 1 and an EYEMATE sensor over the 2...
The Boston Keratoprosthesis type I (KPro) is a prosthetic cornea used to treat several causes of corneal blindness. Some categories of patients, including those with auto-immune diseases s...
This study aims to : 1. Diagnosis of Systemic fungal infections in ICU patients. 2. Detection the most common fungal species in ICU. 3. Detection of in vitro antifungal sens...
Pathogenic infections of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges. DNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; RNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; BACTERIAL INFECTIONS; MYCOPLASMA INFECTIONS; SPIROCHAETALES INFECTIONS; fungal infections; PROTOZOAN INFECTIONS; HELMINTHIASIS; and PRION DISEASES may involve the central nervous system as a primary or secondary process.
Infections resulting from the implantation of prosthetic devices. The infections may be acquired from intraoperative contamination (early) or hematogenously acquired from other sites (late).
Meningitis caused by fungal agents which may occur as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS or arise in immunocompetent hosts.
Pulmonary diseases caused by fungal infections, usually through hematogenous spread.
Mycoses which manifest as infections of deep tissue or blood.
