    1. Optical Coherence Tomography of the Aging Kidney

      Optical Coherence Tomography of the Aging Kidney

      Objectives: The aging kidney exhibits a progressive decline in renal function with characteristic histopathologic changes and is a risk factor for renal transplant. However, the degree to which the kidney exhibits this decline depends on several factors that vary from one individual to the next. Optical coherence tomography is an evolving noninvasive imaging technology that has recently been used to evaluate acute tubular necrosis of living-human donor kidneys before their transplant. With the increasing use of kidneys from older individuals, it is important to determine whether optical coherence tomography also can distinguish the histopathology associated with aging. Materials and Methods ...

    2. Histopathologic and Optical Coherence Tomography Observation After Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty in Rabbits

      Histopathologic and Optical Coherence Tomography Observation After Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty in Rabbits

      Objectives: To study the histopathologic and optical coherence tomography changes after Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty in rabbits. Materials and Methods: Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty was performed in 14 rabbit eyes and descemetorhexis was performed in 10 rabbits, as control. Histopathologic examination and anterior-segment optical coherence tomography were conducted in the Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty group at 1, 2, 4, and 8 weeks. For the control group, histopathologic examination was performed before surgery and at 1, 2, 4, and 8 weeks after surgery. Results: In the Descemet’s Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty group, corneas cleared completely within 2 weeks ...
