Sight-threatening Graves' orbitopathy affects 3 to 5% of patients with Graves' orbitopathy.
Virtuosi impress audiences with their musical expressivity and with their theatrical flair. How do listeners use this auditory and visual information to judge performance quality? Both musicians and laypeople report a belief that sound should trump sight in the judgment of music performance, but surprisingly, their actual judgments reflect the opposite pattern. In a recent study, when presented with 6-second videos of music competition performers, listeners accurately guessed the winners only when the video...
Navigation (Image Guidance) is an essential tool in modern neurosurgery and most surgeons utilise an optical tracking system. While the technology is accurate and reliable, one often is confronted by the line of sight issues that interrupt the flow of an operation. While there have been feedback on this matter, the actual problem has not been accurately quantified, thus making this the primary aim of this study. It is particularly important, given that, robotic technology is gradually making its way into ne...
We present a severe sight-threatening complication from cosmetic intraocular iris implantation, highlighting the dangers of iris implants and medical tourism. Intraocular iris implants are single-piece silicone prostheses implanted in the anterior chamber. These devices were initially developed for the treatment of aniridia, however, more recently these devices have been marketed as a cosmetic procedure to individuals who wish to surgically change their eye colour.
To determine whether the line-of-sight approach improved the performance time and accuracy of ultrasound (US)-guided needle placement targeting the subdeltoid bursa in a cadaver among novice operators compared to the side approach. A secondary objective was to determine whether participants thought the APPLES (angle, position, perpendicular, line up, entry, sweep) mnemonic was a helpful guide for performing the procedure.
Active surveillance is a strategy for managing low-risk, localised prostate cancer, where men are observed with serial prostate-specific antigen assessments to identify signs of disease progression. Currently, there are no strategies to support active surveillance compliance nor are there interventions that can prevent or slow disease progression, ultimately delaying transition to active treatment before it is clinically required. Recently, we proposed that exercise may have a therapeutic potential in delay...
We study experimentally and numerically the motion of a self-phoretic active particle in two-dimensional loosely packed colloidal crystals at fluid interfaces. Two scenarios emerge depending on the interactions between the active particle and the lattice: the active particle either navigates throughout the crystal as an interstitial or is part of the lattice and behaves as an active atom. Active interstitials undergo a run-and-tumble-like motion, with the passive colloids of the crystal acting as tumbling s...
We fabricated electrochemical metallization (ECM) cells using a GaLaSO solid electrolyte, a InSnO inactive electrode and active electrodes consisting of various metals (Cu, Ag, Fe, Cu, Mo, Al). Devices with Ag and Cu active metals showed consistent and repeatable resistive switching behaviour, and had a retention of 3 and >43 days, respectively; both had switching speeds of < 5 ns. Devices with Cr and Fe active metals displayed incomplete or intermittent resistive switching, and devices with Mo and Al...
The immediate impact of rapid glucose lowering induced by bariatric surgery on diabetic retinopathy (DR) progression remains unclear. We present 3-year changes in the best-corrected visual acuity and DR grade in a retrospective observational study of 32 morbidly obese patients (64 eyes) who underwent Roux-en-Y-gastric bypass surgery. We found that despite overall benefits in vision, there was an initial progression from no retinopathy to background retinopathy in 18.9% and 21.7% at years 1 and 2 respectivel...
In the literature, an interlocutor's active listening responses such as "hmh" are often defined as "continuers", serving to prolong another interlocutor's turn. However, to date, experiments on the effect of non-interruptive active listening responses on a conversational partner's duration of talk have given contradictory results. Studies have shown one interlocutor's active listening responses to correlate sometimes with longer and sometimes with shorter turns of another interlocutor. To investigate this c...
Graves orbitopathy (GO) is an extrathyroidal manifestation of autoimmune thyroid disease. Early treatment with glucocorticoids in appropriately selected patients is recommended for active, moderate to severe, and sight-threatening disease. The recently published European Group on Graves Orbitopathy guidelines re-evaluated the recommended doses of intravenous methylprednisolone (ivMP) in response to the potential for adverse effects. We retrospectively reviewed our patient cohort treated with our ivMP protoc...
Numerous studies in visually deprived nonhuman animals have demonstrated sensitive periods for the functional development of the early visual cortex. However, in humans it is yet unknown which visual areas are shaped to which degree based on visual experience. The present study investigated the functional organization and processing capacities of early visual cortex in sight recovery individuals with either a history of congenital cataracts (CC) or late onset cataracts (developmental cataracts, DC). Visual ...
Endogenous circular RNAs (circRNAs) have been reported in various diseases. However, their role in active TB remains unknown. The study was aimed to determine plasma circRNA expression profile to characterize potential biomarker and improve our understanding of active TB pathogenesis. CircRNA expression profiles were screened by circRNA microarrays in active TB plasma samples. Dysregulated circRNAs were then verified by qRT-PCR. CircRNA targets were predicted based on analysis of circRNA-miRNA-mRNA interact...
The 'third eye' of the pineal complex is a curious component of the vertebrate brain associated with light sensation and melatonin production. A fossil lizard with a 'fourth eye' now calls for a reinterpretation of pineal evolution.
The 12/15-lipoxygenase (12/15-LOX) enzymes react with polyunsaturated fatty acids producing active lipid metabolites that are involved in plethora of human diseases including neurological disorders. A great many of elegant studies over the last decades have contributed to unraveling the mechanism how 12/15-lipoxygenase play a role in these diseases. And the way it works is mainly through apoptosis. However, recent years have found that the way 12/15-lipoxygenase works is also related to autophagy and ferrop...
The aim of this study was to compare the quality of electroretinogram (ERG) recordings using a custom built active electrode with attached amplifier versus a standard (passive) ERG electrode. Scotopic and photopic ERG responses were recorded from five adult albino rabbits using a custom built active electrode on one eye and a passive electrode on the other. For the active electrode, the ERG-jet electrode (Universo S.A., La Chaux-De-Fonds, Switzerland) was used as the transducer with the cable cut short and ...
Active recovery is often used by athletes after strenuous exercise or competition but its underlying mechanisms are not well understood. We hypothesized that active recovery speeds-up recovery processes within the muscle and the central nervous system (CNS).
Active surveillance is the preferred management of men with low-risk prostate cancer. Cancer-specific anxiety during active surveillance remains understudied. We sought to report long-term anxiety for men on active surveillance to determine if interventions need to be tailored to improve adherence.
