To find clinical demographics of pterygium surgery and prevalence of conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) in pterygium specimen.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: International ophthalmology
To assess if anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) is a noninvasive diagnostic method suitable to differentiate benign corneo-conjunctival lesions (pterygium) from premalignant lesion...
There is no consensus about the best method for pterygium excision. Variable recurrence rates have been reported in the literature depending on the surgical technique.
The aim of the study was to compare loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) as treatment for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 2/3 in HIV- versus HIV+ women.
Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) may progress to cervical cancer if left untreated. The loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) of the transitional zone of the cervix is a standard form...
Femtosecond laser-assisted conjunctival autografts (CAG) preparation was recently proposed. This study reports the outcomes of the first clinical trial on the use of laser to prepare CAG in pterygium ...
To study the efficacy and safety of amniotic membrane transplantation as an adjunctive therapy after surgical excision of primary pterygium and compare the clinical outcomes with conjuncti...
Pterygium is a fibrovascular wing shaped encroachment of conjunctival fold on to the cornea with elastotic degeneration of a subconjunctival tissue, The standard treatment for pterygium is...
To compare the efficacy of rotational narrow strip conjunctival graft to full conjunctival graft in primary pterygium excision. Risk analysis of factors that may affects the recurrence rat...
Pterygium excision surgery involves excising the abnormal growth from the cornea and filling the defect with a conjunctival (white of the eye) graft from the superior part of the eye. This...
The treatment of pterygium is still quite controversial. Previous studies using a large incision for pterygium excision and a large graft and has reported a very low recurrence rate with t...
A premalignant change arising in the prostatic epithelium, regarded as the most important and most likely precursor of prostatic adenocarcinoma. The neoplasia takes the form of an intra-acinar or ductal proliferation of secretory cells with unequivocal nuclear anaplasia, which corresponds to nuclear grade 2 and 3 invasive prostate cancer.
Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
A form of multiple endocrine neoplasia that is characterized by the combined occurrence of tumors in the PARATHYROID GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, and the PANCREATIC ISLETS. The resulting clinical signs include HYPERPARATHYROIDISM; HYPERCALCEMIA; HYPERPROLACTINEMIA; CUSHING DISEASE; GASTRINOMA; and ZOLLINGER-ELLISON SYNDROME. This disease is due to loss-of-function of the MEN1 gene, a tumor suppressor gene (GENES, TUMOR SUPPRESSOR) on CHROMOSOME 11 (Locus: 11q13).
A malignancy arising in uterine cervical epithelium and confined thereto, representing a continuum of histological changes ranging from well-differentiated CIN 1 (formerly, mild dysplasia) to severe dysplasia/carcinoma in situ, CIN 3. The lesion arises at the squamocolumnar cell junction at the transformation zone of the endocervical canal, with a variable tendency to develop invasive epidermoid carcinoma, a tendency that is enhanced by concomitant human papillomaviral infection. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
T Lymphocytes with limited diversity of receptors (e.g., ALPHA E INTEGRINS) in the epidermis of the skin and the mucosal linings. They recognize common microbes via T-CELL RECEPTORS and PATHOGEN-ASSOCIATED MOLECULAR PATTERN MOLECULES and function as effector cells for INNATE IMMUNITY. Activation of intraepithelial lymphocytes is a marker for various gastrointestinal diseases (e.g., CELIAC DISEASE; HAIRY CELL LEUKEMIA; and ENTEROPATHY-ASSOCIATED T-CELL LYMPHOMA).
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...
