    2. Preventing Corneal Calcification Associated With Xylazine for Longitudinal Optical Coherence Tomography in Young Rodents

      Preventing Corneal Calcification Associated With Xylazine for Longitudinal Optical Coherence Tomography in Young Rodents
      Purpose : Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is widely used in clinical ophthalmology and recently gained popularity in laboratory research involving small rodents. Its noninvasive nature allows repeated measurements, thereby decreasing the number of animals required. However, when used at a conventional dosage, xylazine (an 2-adrenoceptor) can cause irreversible corneal calcification, especially among young rodents. In the present study, we test whether corneal calcification associated with xylazine is mediated by the ...

    3. Comparison of the pig and feline models for full thickness corneal transplantation

      Comparison of the pig and feline models for full thickness corneal transplantation
      Purpose  The goal of this study was to report on the advantages and limitations of the pig and feline models for experimental in vivo corneal transplantation.Methods  Ten healthy domestic pigs and ten healthy cats were used. Full thickness penetrating keratoplasty was performed using autologous (eight cases), allogeneic (seven cases) or human xenogeneic (three cases) tissue. In two other cases, the inflammatory response to partial thickness trephination (without transplantation) was ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography Anatomy of the Corneal Endothelial Transplantation Wound

      Optical Coherence Tomography Anatomy of the Corneal Endothelial Transplantation Wound
      Purpose: The goal of this study was to prospectively assess the deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty (DLEK) wound anatomy and its evolution during the 12 months after surgery, using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: The eyes of 8 patients (1 eye per patient) who consecutively underwent DLEK for Fuchs dystrophy or pseudophakic bullous keratopathy were prospectively studied before and 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery. The Stratus OCT apparatus ...
