1. CBT-001 administered three times daily (TID) for 4 weeks has an acceptable safety profile when used in pterygium patients 2. CBT-001 administered TID for 4 weeks is more effecti...
Pterygium is known to induce with-the-rule astigmatism. Excision of pterygium will steepen the cornea and reduce corneal astigmatism. We postulate that the alteration of keratometry readin...
Pterygium is the growth of conjunctival tissue onto the cornea, usually from the nasal quadrant of the cornea.Visual acuity may be reduced due to direct invasion of the visual axis or asti...
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...
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the use of bevacizumab (Avastin) as an adjunctive medication during pterygium surgery in preventing pterygium recurrence. A pterygium i...
To confirm that mouse double minute 2 (MDM2) could inhibit p53 activity in human pterygium. And to show the disruption of MDM2-p53 interaction could reactive the functions of p53 in pterygium.
Pterygium, one of the most common ocular surface diseases, is characterized by inflammatory infiltrates, proliferation, angiogenesis, fibrosis, and extracellular matrix breakdown. The objective of thi...
Pterygium is a fibrovascular subepithelial growth of degenerative tissue over the limbus. It is a common condition worldwide that is especially prevalent in tropical countries within the "pterygium be...
After a long history in flaps' surgery, the perforator flaps became the most used flaps nowadays. From the beginning, their use as free flaps diminished substantially the donor site morbidity. In the ...
We describe a new surgical technique to treat primary pterygium, the head inversion technique, with its surgical outcomes. Seventy-five eyes of 75 consecutive patients with primary pterygium undergoin...
Tongues of skin and subcutaneous tissue, sometimes including muscle, cut away from the underlying parts but often still attached at one end. They retain their own microvasculature also transferred to the new site. They are used in plastic surgery for filling a defect in a neighboring region. The concept includes pedicled flaps, rotation flaps, tube flaps, etc.
An abnormal triangular fold of membrane in the interpalpebral fissure, extending from the conjunctiva to the cornea, being immovably united to the cornea at its apex, firmly attached to the sclera throughout its middle portion, and merged with the conjunctiva at its base. (Dorland, 27th ed)
