  • blindness
  • HSK is clinically characterized by continuous relapses, however, due to lack of effective treatments, recurrent episodes would aggravate the corneal opacity, eventually leading to blindness. (alliedacademies.org)
  • neovascularization
  • Significant corneal neovascularization and inflammatory cell infiltration were observed in NSK patients before surgery. (alliedacademies.org)
  • Moreover, 4 eyes were accompanied with neovascularization at the corneal graft edge in the PKP group, while there was only 1 eye associated with neovascularization in the DLKP group. (alliedacademies.org)
  • However, surgical failure may still occur because of the elevated rejection rate resulting from corneal neovascularization and inflammation. (alliedacademies.org)
  • surgical
  • There is no one general-purpose surgical technique to treat corneal perforations. (hindawi.com)
  • A diagnosis of corneal perforation does not always require immediate surgical treatment. (hindawi.com)
  • Conclusion This study which is the largest of its kind shows that despite the seriousness of the critical corneal pathology and the surgical challenges that it poses, the outcomes of eCG are favourable with most patients keeping their eyesight and avoiding immediate rejection. (bmj.com)
  • acute
  • This model has been used to define factors in the cornea that are responsible for the relative immune privilege status of this tissue that enables corneal allografts to survive acute rejection in the absence of immunosuppressive therapy. (jove.com)
  • In addition to describing a model for acute corneal allograft rejection, we also present for the first time a model of late-term corneal allograft rejection. (jove.com)
  • inflammation
  • The aim of our study is to investigate the presence of LGR5 in SCs of healthy human tissues using immunohistochemistry and to analyze possible changes in its expression due to inflammation. (molvis.org)
  • diseases
  • The graft is taken from a recently dead individual with no known diseases or other factors that may affect the chance of survival of the donated tissue or the health of the recipient. (wikipedia.org)
  • In recent years, DLKP has been rapidly developed and widely used in the treatment of various corneal diseases. (alliedacademies.org)
  • However, it is not recommended for the Mooren's ulcer, a peripheral autoimmune-related ulcerative corneal diseases. (biomedcentral.com)
  • methods
  • Alternatives to the conventional closure methods have been investigated for many years 5 6 7 8 9 and may be divided into four major groups: biological glues, 9 10 11 synthetic adhesives, 9 chromophore-assisted laser welding, 12 and laser tissue welding. (arvojournals.org)
  • For the production of the tissue graft, various methods are used, the methods for the production of classical standard tissue preparations as well as those of regenerative medicine (decellularisation). (gbm-v.de)
