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 Keratoprosthesis (BI-KPro, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, MA, USA).
As statisticians develop new methodological approaches, there are many factors that influence whether others will utilize their work. This paper is a bibliometric study that identifies and quantifies associations between characteristics of new biostatistics methods and their citation counts. Of primary interest was the association between numbers of citations and whether software code was available to the reader.
To compare the outcomes of Boston keratoprosthesis type 1 implantation after failed keratoplasty in patients who are blind or sighted in the contralateral eye.
To evaluate the long-term outcomes of Boston type I keratoprosthesis (B-Kpro) in the management of patients with ocular burn injuries.
The Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) is the most commonly used artificial cornea. It has been proven to be successful for severe corneal disease not amenable to keratoplasty. We have observed our patients reporting debilitating glare despite attaining good visual acuities. This motivated us to objectively measure light scatter in eyes with a KPro.
Extravagant claims were made for proprietary dental anesthetics in Boston, MA, in the late 1800s. For instance, in 1883, Urial K. Mayo introduced an inhaled Vegetable Anaesthetic comprised of nitrous oxide that had been uselessly pretreated with botanical material. This misguided concept may have been inspired by homeopathy, but it was also in line with the earlier false belief of Elton R. Smilie, Charles T. Jackson, and William T.G. Morton that sulfuric ether could volatilize opium at room temperature. In ...
To analyse the anatomical and functionaloutcomes of Boston type II keratoprosthesis at a tertiary eye care centre in South India. Retrospective chart review of 10 patients operated with Boston keratoprosthesis Type 2 between Feb 2013 and June 2017 were analysed. Outcome measures analysed included, visual outcome, device retention and postoperative complications. The most common indication for surgery was SJS in 80% (8 of 10 eyes). Mean follow-up duration was 2.75 years (0.5-5 years, SD - 1.71, median 32...
To report the outcomes of the Boston type I keratoprosthesis (KPro) as the primary penetrating corneal procedure.
Impairments in the Boston Naming Test (BNT), which measures confrontational word retrieval, frequently accompanies Alzheimer's dementia (AD) and may predict a more rapid progression of illness. This study aims to validate the Thai version of the 15-item BNT (T-BNT) in participants with AD and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) and to externally validate the T-BNT using clinical and biomarker measurements.
This study examined men's participation and performance in the Boston Marathon. Data from all 368,940 official male finishers in the Boston Marathon from 1897 through 2017 were analyzed using different analyses and regression models for all runners, annual top hundred finishers, annual top ten finishers and annual winners. Effect of calendar year on race time was examined alone, in a uni-variable model, and together with country of origin and weather conditions (average air temperature and precipitation) in...
Shared random parameter models (SRPMs) were first introduced by researchers at the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Biostatistics Branch for analyzing longitudinal data with informative dropout (Wu and Carroll, 1987; Wu and Bailey, 1988; Follmann and Wu, 1995; Albert and Follmann, 2000; Albert et al, 2002). This work was all focused on characterizing the longitudinal data process in the presence of an informative missing data mechanism that is treated as a nuisance. Shared random parameter mo...
The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between nerve conduction studies and three commonly used patient-reported outcome measures (Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand [DASH], Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire [MHQ], and the Polish version of the Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire [BCTQ]) METHODS: A total of 218 consecutive patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) completed the BCTQ, MHQ, and DASH questionnaires followed by nerve conduction studies on their first visit to the c...
The congress of the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research is one of the main worldwide forums for the dissemination of research and knowledge on healthcare economics. Brazil is the largest country in Latin America, with a per-capita gross domestic product of $15 200 in 2017 and healthcare expenditure of the order of $1 318 per inhabitant. Brazilian specialists participated actively in the society's latest congress, which took place in Boston, Massachusetts, from May 20 to 24, 201...
