Cicatricial conjunctival constriction rings caused by trauma seriously influences visual function and causes blepharon deformities. The treatment of cicatricial conjunctival constriction rings is intractable.

To describe a novel technique to correct cicatricial lower lid entropion and retraction using a transverse lower lid tarsotomy with an interposed tarsoconjunctival flap posterior lamellar spacer.
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...

To evaluate the efficacy in degree of ptosis correction achieved by single suture Mueller muscle conjunctival resection (ssMMCR) when compared with that of traditional MMCR.
Bacterial cell division is orchestrated by the Z ring, which is formed by single-stranded treadmilling protofilaments of FtsZ. In Streptomyces, during sporulation, multiple Z rings are assembled and l...
Cicatricial pemphigoid is an autoimmune blistering disease which affects the skin, mucous membranes, and, in a small subset of patients, the eye. Progressive ocular disease can lead to ir...
This is a single-center, open-label clinical study to study the efficacy of apremilast in the treatment of mild to moderate central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia. The investigators hypo...
This is a single-institution, phase II study to determine the event-free survival at 1 year post allogeneic transplant and serial mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) infusions from a related donor...
The aim of the study is to show a reduction of a re-rupture rate with an ACL (antero crusader ligament) + ALL (anterolateral ligament) combined technique compared to a classical Kenneth-Jo...
Alopecia is a common, distressing condition that is sometimes difficult to diagnose and treat. Losing hair is not usually health threatening; it can scar a young child's vulnerable ...
A disorder present in the newborn infant in which constriction rings or bands, causing soft tissue depressions, encircle digits, extremities, or limbs and sometimes the neck, thorax, or abdomen. They may be associated with intrauterine amputations.
Corneal and conjunctival dryness due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Filamentary keratitis or erosion of the conjunctival and corneal epithelium may be caused by these disorders. Sensation of the presence of a foreign body in the eye and burning of the eyes may occur.
DNA of kinetoplasts which are specialized MITOCHONDRIA of trypanosomes and related parasitic protozoa within the order KINETOPLASTIDA. Kinetoplast DNA consists of a complex network of numerous catenated rings of two classes; the first being a large number of small DNA duplex rings, called minicircles, approximately 2000 base pairs in length, and the second being several dozen much larger rings, called maxicircles, approximately 37 kb in length.
An elevated scar, resembling a KELOID, but which does not spread into surrounding tissues. It is formed by enlargement and overgrowth of cicatricial tissue and regresses spontaneously.
Compounds with three fused rings that appear like a naphthalene fused to piperidone or like a benz(de)isoquinoline-1,3-dione (not to be confused with BENZYLISOQUINOLINES which have a methyl separating the naphthyl from the benzyl rings). Members are CYTOTOXINS.
