  1. 1. Aspects on prostanoid and cholinergic effects on aqueous humour dynamics in human eyes

    Author : Christina Lindén; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aqueous flow; blood-aqueous barrier; flare; human; intraocular pressure IOP ; latanoprost; physostigmine; prostaglandins; uveoscleral flow;

    Abstract : The discovery of the ocular hypotensive effect of topically applied prostaglandins (PGs) has raised a number of questions about the mechanisms of action involved. The aim of the present thesis was to answer some of these questions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cataract surgery in patients with diabetes mellitus : clinical studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Anna Zaczek; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetic retinopathy; clinically significant macular edema; miosis; mydriasis; neuropathy; phenylephrine; pilocarpine; visual acuity; laser flare intensity; cataract surgery; phacoemulsification; blood-aqueous barrier; postoperative inflammation; posterior capsule opacification; intraocular lens; Scheimflug camera;

    Abstract : The aim was to evaluate phacoemulsification cataract extraction with small incision and implantation of heparin-coated intraocular lens (IOL) in the capsular bag in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). The aqueous flare intensity, which reflects the protein concentration in the aqueous humor, was used to evaluate blood-aqueous function in patients with DM type I and type II. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inflammatory response after cataract surgery : Randomized controlled clinical and laboratory studies of different surgical techniques

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Carl-Gustaf Laurell; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cataract extraction; phacoemulsification; inflammation; blood-aqueousbarrier; anti-inflammatory agents; heparin surface modified intraocular lens; fluorophotometry; prostaglandins; after-cataract; corneal oedema; lasers; comparative study; randomize;

    Abstract : During the last few years the phacoemulsification technique for cataract extractionhas improved considerably. Because of this development phacoemulsification has recentlysuperseded extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) as the preferred method. READ MORE
