A three-dimensional (3D) prosthesis was designed and built for a red-lored Amazon parrot ( Amazona autumnalis) with a pre-existing amputation of the distal left leg at the tibiotarsal-tarsometatarsal joint and injuries to the right leg caused by cage companion aggression. The prosthesis consisted of a straight main imprint, with a round element at both ends to provide stability, and a bridge connecting this to a socket without a bottom where the stump could be accommodated and held securely with self-adhesive bandaging...

BACKGROUND: The Boston Keratoprosthesis (B-KPro) is a therapeutic option for corneal replacement for visual rehabilitation in eyes with poor a prognosis for penetrating keratoplasty (high-risk eyes). Since 2009, this approach has been used in the MVZ Prof. Neuhann, Munich, and since 2013 also at the Department of Ophthalmology, University of Cologne. An overview of results from the first 73 eyes in these departments is presented. METHODS: All recipient eyes of both centers which received a B-KPro type I (BI-KPro) between November 2009 and March 2017 were included...

AIM: The aim of the study was to evaluate the contribution to outpatient care and the perspectives of employed and self-employed ophthalmologists in isolation and in comparison to other professional groups. METHOD: Based on statistical data (source: statistical information provided by the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians) from 31 December 2015, newly admitted physicians in 2015 and their contribution differentiated by employment relationships were evaluated according to head count and working time equivalents (using "planning of demand equivalents")...

Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I) is an autosomal recessive storage disorder that result as a consequence of a deficiency in the lysosomal hydrolase, a-L-iduronidase enzyme encoded by IDUA gene. Over a hundred causative variants in IDUA have been identified, which result in a progressive multi-systemic disease with a broad range of severity and disease progression reported across affected individuals. The aim of this study was the detection and interpretation of IDUA mutation in a family with two children affected with lethal MPS I...

PURPOSE: To investigate the temporal relationship between inferior macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (mGCIPL) loss and corresponding peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) defect on the optical coherence tomography (OCT) deviation map in glaucoma. DESIGN: Retrospective, observational study. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 151 patients with early-stage glaucoma (visual field [VF] mean deviation between -1.5 and -5.5 decibels [dB])...

MVZ provide community-based health care services improving integrated primary care and specialist care and allow hospital to outsource outpatient activities. They also provide patient-centered care and promote internal and external multidisciplinary coordination.</ce:para> <ce:para>MVZ can provide an example for possible changes to private specialist organisation and structuring of hospital services in France, while MSP mainly focus on primary care and only a few specialist CS have been created...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to investigate the prevalence of abnormal thinning of the inferior macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (mGCIPL) in glaucoma and to understand its relationship to abnormal regions of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL), including the macular vulnerability zone (MVZ). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We evaluated 186 eyes (186 patients) with glaucoma. An integrated deviation map was merged by superimposition of mGCIPL and pRNFL deviation maps (from a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography) onto RNFL photography as aligned by Photoshop software based on vascular landmarks...

Radiology is among the medical disciplines which require the highest investment costs in the healthcare system. The need to design efficient workflows to ensure maximum utilization of the equipment has long been known. In order to be able to establish a sound financial plan prior to a project or equipment purchase, the costs of an examination have to be broken down by modality and compared with the reimbursement rates. Obviously, the same holds true for operative decisions when scarce human resources have to be allocated...

We investigated protein expression in the medullary visceral zone (MVZ) of rats with multiple-organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) caused by subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) to discuss the possible regulatory mechanism of the MVZ in the course of SAH-induced MODS. A SAH-induced MODS model was established in rats by injecting arterial blood into the Willis' circle. Protein expression in the MVZ was analyzed by immunohistochemistry assay. Protein expression in the MVZ peaked 24-36 h after SAH, and was significantly higher than in the control and sham operation groups...

BACKGROUND: Testosterone deficiency represents a significant health risk factor for men but the importance has so far been underestimated. Besides physiological and age-related reduction, acquired testosterone deficiency may also occur. Testosterone deficiency is a possible result of commonly occurring diseases or is itself the basis for development of different diseases. The scope of the present investigation was measurement of serum testosterone levels in different age groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Serum testosterone levels were determined in samples from 5,735 healthy men at the LADR laboratory MVZ Dr...

Computers are ubiquitous in the life sciences and are associated with many of the practical and conceptual changes that characterize biology's twentieth-century transformation. Yet comparatively little has been written about how scientists use computers. Despite this relative lack of scholarly attention, the claim that computers revolutionized the life sciences by making the impossible possible is widespread, and relatively unchallenged. How did the introduction of computers into research programs shape scientific practice? The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (MVZ) at the University of California, Berkeley provides a tractable way into this under-examined question because it is possible to follow the computerization of data in the context of long-term research programs...

This study was designed to observe the role of FOS protein expression in the rat medullary visceral zone (MVZ) in multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) caused by subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), with and without severing the vagus nerve. We also investigated the regulatory and control mechanisms of the MVZ and the vagus nerve in MODS following SAH. A model of MODS following SAH was established by injecting arterial blood into the Willis' circle. The vagus nerve was cut off and blocked. The FOS protein expression in the MVZ was detected by immunohistochemistry...

There is a growing body of evidence that early glaucomatous damage involves the macula. The anatomical basis of this damage can be studied using frequency domain optical coherence tomography (fdOCT), by which the local thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and local retinal ganglion cell plus inner plexiform (RGC+) layer can be measured. Based upon averaged fdOCT results from healthy controls and patients, we show that: 1. For healthy controls, the average RGC+ layer thickness closely matches human histological data; 2...

Throughout the twentieth century calls to modernize natural history motivated a range of responses. It was unclear how research in natural history museums would participate in the significant technological and conceptual changes that were occurring in the life sciences. By the 1960s, the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley, was among the few university-based natural history museums that were able to maintain their specimen collections and support active research. The MVZ therefore provides a window to the modernization of natural history...
