Salt is important in the pathogenesis of hypertension (HT). Salt-sensitive hypertension (SSH) accounts for about half of all HT cases. In SSH, sodium/potassium adenosine triphosphatase (Na/K-ATPase) a...
The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of intraocular lymphatic vessels in patients with uveal melanomas and extrascleral extension using a panel of lymphatic markers. The following imm...
We demonstrate an optimized optical platform for the three-dimensional (3-D) visualization of crystalline lens opacities in vivo in the eyes of patients with different types and grades of cataracts. W...
The aim of this study was to determine the inter- and intra-observer variability of the modified Outerbridge cartilage classification system in canine joints evaluated via arthroscopy.
The combination of grading and staging is the basis of current standard of care for prediction for most cancers. D. F. Gleason created the current prostate cancer (PCa) grading system. This system has...
To study the correlations among the dysfunctional lens index (DLI), Lens Opacities Classification System III (LOCS III) nuclear opalescence grading score, preoperative corrected distance v...
Congenital cataracts (CC) are the leading cause of childhood visual disabilities and treatable childhood blindness worldwide1. CC patients have a wide range of presentations of lens opacit...
Salt-sensitive hypertension (SSH) accounts for about the half of all Hypertension (HT) cases .In SSH, Na+/K+-ATPase activity is impaired. Impaired Na+/K+-ATPase activity in the lens epithe...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of Avastin introduced into the inside of the eyeball in causing shrinkage of the uveal melanoma (tumor of the eye). Avasti...
The goal of the present study is to evaluate the prevalence of radiation-associated lens opacities among interventional cardiology staff members (such as physicians, technicians, and nurse...
Tumors of the choroid; most common intraocular tumors are malignant melanomas of the choroid. These usually occur after puberty and increase in incidence with advancing age. Most malignant melanomas of the uveal tract develop from benign melanomas (nevi).
A plant subclass of the class Liliopsida (monocotyledons) in the Chronquist classification system. This is equivalent to the Alismatales order in the APG classification system. It is a primitive group of more or less aquatic plants.
Tumors or cancer of ENDOMETRIUM, the mucous lining of the UTERUS. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Their classification and grading are based on the various cell types and the percent of undifferentiated cells.
Insertion of an artificial lens to replace the natural CRYSTALLINE LENS after CATARACT EXTRACTION or to supplement the natural lens which is left in place.
A collective term for the various types of nevi and melanomas.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
