To evaluate the benefit of iris biopsy in cats with iris hyperpigmentation to differentiate melanosis from early feline diffuse iris melanoma (FDIM).
Intradural disc herniation (IDH) is defined as the displacement of the inter-vertebral disc nucleus pulposus into the dural sac. In this lumbar lesion, the affected level differs from that of a tradit...
As a treatment to replace regenerative medicine to treat limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD), we performed 4 consecutive cases of autologous transplantation of conjunctival explants by modifying simple...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of an investigational version of the Cutera enlightenTM laser that offers multiple wavelengths for removal of benign pigmented lesions.
The investigators propose the use of functional photoacoustic microscopy (fPAM) to evaluate both benign and malignant pigmented lesions for tumor depth. By comparing fPAM analysis to histo...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and long term outcomes of ex vivo cultured limbal stem cell on amniotic membrane transplantation for corneal surface reconstr...
The purpose of this study is to image pigmented skin lesions suspicious for melanoma with an imaging technology called in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy. This technology uses low int...
Spectrophotometric intracutaneous analysis (SIAscopy) is a new technique for imaging pigmented skin lesions and for diagnosing melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. The SIAscope is a port...
The most anterior portion of the uveal layer, separating the anterior chamber from the posterior. It consists of two layers - the stroma and the pigmented epithelium. Color of the iris depends on the amount of melanin in the stroma on reflection from the pigmented epithelium.
The pigmented vascular coat of the eyeball, consisting of the CHOROID; CILIARY BODY; and IRIS, which are continuous with each other. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
Tumors of the iris characterized by increased pigmentation of melanocytes. Iris nevi are composed of proliferated melanocytes and are associated with neurofibromatosis and malignant melanoma of the choroid and ciliary body. Malignant melanoma of the iris often originates from preexisting nevi.
A grouping of three closely linked conditions: iris nevus (or Cogan-Reese) syndrome, Chandler Syndrome, and essential (progressive) iris atrophy. The most common features of this syndrome are the movement of endothelial cells off the cornea onto the iris leading to corneal swelling, distortion of the iris, and variable degrees of distortion of the pupil. The abnormal cell movement plugs fluid outflow channels of the eye causing GLAUCOMA.
Inflammation of the anterior uvea comprising the iris, angle structures, and the ciliary body. Manifestations of this disorder include ciliary injection, exudation into the anterior chamber, iris changes, and adhesions between the iris and lens (posterior synechiae). Intraocular pressure may be increased or reduced.
