To determine whether scleral topical application of mitomycin-C (MMC) results in measurable plasma levels of systemic absorption.
This article was published in the following journal.
To report a surgical approach combining scleral patch graft and tenonplasty for successful management of refractory Pseudomonas scleritis following pterygium removal with mitomycin C application.
Pterygium is a fibrovascular subepithelial growth of degenerative tissue over the limbus. It is a common condition worldwide that is especially prevalent in tropical countries within the "pterygium be...
We describe a new surgical technique to treat primary pterygium, the head inversion technique, with its surgical outcomes. Seventy-five eyes of 75 consecutive patients with primary pterygium undergoin...
To confirm that mouse double minute 2 (MDM2) could inhibit p53 activity in human pterygium. And to show the disruption of MDM2-p53 interaction could reactive the functions of p53 in pterygium.
To determine how photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and mitomycin C (MMC) affect corneal nerves and their regeneration over time after surgery.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the use of bevacizumab (Avastin) as an adjunctive medication during pterygium surgery in preventing pterygium recurrence. A pterygium i...
To evaluate changes in endothelial cell count after pterygium surgery with mitomycin C (MMC) 0.02%
Pterygium is characterized by encroachment of a ﬂeshy fibrovascular tissue from the bulbar conjunctiva on to the cornea. Although previously thought to be a solely degenerative disease, ...
1. CBT-001 administered three times daily (TID) for 4 weeks has an acceptable safety profile when used in pterygium patients 2. CBT-001 administered TID for 4 weeks is more effecti...
Recurrent or secondary pterygium often has often a growing fibrovascular tissue more exuberant than the primary. Histological findings differ from the primary, since the typical changes in...
Toxic antibiotic of the mitomycin group, obtained from MITOMYCIN and also from Streptomyces ardus and other species. It is proposed as an antineoplastic agent, with some antibiotic properties.
An enediyne that alkylates DNA and RNA like MITOMYCIN does, so it is cytotoxic.
The active sympathomimetic hormone from the adrenal medulla. It stimulates both the alpha- and beta- adrenergic systems, causes systemic vasoconstriction and gastrointestinal relaxation, stimulates the heart, and dilates bronchi and cerebral vessels. It is used in asthma and cardiac failure and to delay absorption of local anesthetics.
A syndrome characterized by progressive life-threatening RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY in the absence of known LUNG DISEASES, usually following a systemic insult such as surgery or major TRAUMA.
An abnormal triangular fold of membrane in the interpalpebral fissure, extending from the conjunctiva to the cornea, being immovably united to the cornea at its apex, firmly attached to the sclera throughout its middle portion, and merged with the conjunctiva at its base. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
