To compare anatomical and functional results between three types of keratoprosthesis (KPro) in chemical injury and autoimmune disease.

Name: The ocular surface
We describe the piezo-osteotomy feasibility in rehabilitation and harvesting of osteo-odonto lamina in modified osteo-odonto keratoprosthesis (MOOKP) surgery. Surgery was evaluated regarding operative...
To compare the clinical examination and computerized tomography (CT) scanning methods for the detection of laminar resorption in eyes with osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP).
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...
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 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...
The purpose of this study is to determine wether autologous bone graft from iliac crest enhances bone union of tibial osteotomies, in the treatment of varus knee deformity.
The purpose of this study: In a prospective randomized study with 2 years of follow-up we want to compare the migration of the uncemented trabecular metal (TM) versus the cemented tibial ...
Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)
City located in Massachusetts.
The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.
The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
Disease or damage involving the SCIATIC NERVE, which divides into the PERONEAL NERVE and TIBIAL NERVE (see also PERONEAL NEUROPATHIES and TIBIAL NEUROPATHY). Clinical manifestations may include SCIATICA or pain localized to the hip, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of posterior thigh muscles and muscles innervated by the peroneal and tibial nerves, and sensory loss involving the lateral and posterior thigh, posterior and lateral leg, and sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve may be affected by trauma; ISCHEMIA; COLLAGEN DISEASES; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1363)
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Autoimmune disorders are conditions that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. Normally the immune system's white blood cells help protect ...
