PURPOSE: To report the clinical outcomes of scleral Misa® lenses (Microlens Contactlens Technolgy, Arnhem, Netherlands) for visual rehabilitation in patients with pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD). MEHODS: In this prospective interventional case series, 24 eyes of 12 PMD patients were fitted with scleral Misa® lenses. Patients were followed regularly for continuous daily wearing time (CDWT), contact lens handling issues, visual acuity, and any subjective or objective contact lens related complications...

BACKGROUND: Blunt injuries of the supra-aortic branches are rare entity, and majority of patients die before arrival at the hospital. Those who arrive alive require complex and fast procedure that requires sternotomy. We report 3 successfully managed cases. CASE REPORTS: We report 3 patients with injury of supra-aortic branches. One was treated urgently due to longitudinal rupture on the posterior wall of innominate artery after car accident, and another 2 had chronic false aneurysm located at the very orifice of the right subclavian and left common carotid artery...

OBJECTIVE: To study the metabonomic for acute hepatic injury in rats and the hepato-protective effect of Xiaoyao Powder in rats. METHODS: Male rats were treated with Xiaoyao Powder decoction through intragastric for 7 days. 0.2% CCl4 peanut oil solution were given by intraperitoneal injection in one hour after 7 days. The rats were fasted for 16 hours, but water was given. Hepatic tissues were used for histopathological examination. Pre-column derivatization-GC-MS was used to detect the changes in rats serum metabolites...

This paper reports on some of the key outcomes of a 3 year £1.5m Technology Strategy Board (TSB) funded research programme to develop a small footprint, versatile, counter-current chromatography purification technology and methodology which can be operated at a range of scales in both batch and continuous modes and that can be inserted into existing process plant and systems. Our consortium, integrates technology providers (Dynamic Extractions) and the scientific development team (Brunel) with end user needs (GSK & Pfizer), addressing major production challenges aimed at providing flexible, low capital platform technology driving substantial cost efficiency in both drug development and drug manufacturing processes...

BACKGROUND: The advent of modern endosseous implant design and improved surface technology has allowed the development of new restorative techniques that decrease patient's total treatment time. Utilizing the latest scanning, CAD/CAM and manufacturing technolgies we are able to manufacture individualized dental restoration with high accuracy and a perfect precision of fit. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This report describes the rehabilitation of a completely edentulous patient utilizing a CT-based implant planning with computer-assisted surgical design, simultaneous CAD/CAM fabrication of a surgical template, a flapless surgical placement of the implants, and a prefabricated fixed complete denture for an immediately loaded restoration according to Nobel Biocare's Teeth-in-an-Hour™ (Nobel Biocare Goteborg, Sweden) protocol...

In minimally-invasive intraluminal diagnosis or treatment, catheters or endoscopes need a high degree of operator ability for guidance to appropriate routes, especially in small peripheral regions. Movable microstructures and assistant guiding technolgies should be developed to make these procedures easier. The use of magnetism, which can give force to simple internal objects safely with no contact, is a possible option. To facilitate the realization of magnetic operation in clinical medicine, magnetically operated microforceps which assist endoscopic submucosal dissections in the stomach have been developed, and are being tested in clinical trials...

At Southern Ohio Medical Center (SOMC), the medical imaging department and the radiologists expressed a strong desire to improve workflow. The improved workflow was a major motivating factor toward implementing a new RIS and speech recognition technology. The need to monitor workflow in a real-time fashion and to evaluate productivity and resources necessitated that a new solution be found. A decision was made to roll out both the new RIS product and speech recognition to maximize the resources to interface and implement the new solution...

Successful integration of knowledge-based functions in the electronic patient record depends on direct and context-sensitive accessibility and availability to clinicians and must suit their workflow. In this paper we describe an exemplary integration of an existing standalone scoring system for acute abdominal pain into two different commercial hospital information systems using Java/Corba technolgy.
