    2. Optical coherence tomography angiography of the peripapillary retina and optic nerve head in dominant optic atrophy

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of the peripapillary retina and optic nerve head in dominant optic atrophy
      Peripapillar and nerve head vessel density (VD) was measured in 10 patients affected by Dominant optic atrophy (DOA) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) and compared to the measurements of 15 age- and gender-matched controls. DOA patients showed VD reduction, mostly in the temporal and inferotemporal peripapillary sectors, according to the preferential involvement of the papillomacular bundle. Despite poor best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), OCT-A revealed good repeatability. VD correlated with ...

    3. Impact of Culprit Plaque and Atherothrombotic Components on Incomplete Stent Apposition in Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction Treated With Everolimus-Eluting Stents – An OCTAVIA Substudy –

      Impact of Culprit Plaque and Atherothrombotic Components on Incomplete Stent Apposition in Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction Treated With Everolimus-Eluting Stents – An OCTAVIA Substudy –
      Background: The role of culprit plaque and related atherothrombotic components on incomplete stent apposition (ISA) occurrence after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (p-PCI) is unknown. Methods and Results: ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing p-PCI with an everolimus-eluting stent were prospectively investigated with optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the infarct-related artery before, after stenting and at 9 months. OCT data, aspirated thrombus and serum inflammatory biomarkers were analyzed. 114 patients ...

      Mechanisms of Atherothrombosis and Vascular Response to Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Women Versus Men With Acute Myocardial Infarction : Results of the OCTAVIA (Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment of Gender Diversity in Primary Angiop
      Objectives This study sought to assess in vivo sex differences in the pathophysiology of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and vascular response to primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background There is no consensus on whether differences in the pathophysiology of STEMI and response to primary PCI between women and men reflect biological factors as opposed to differences in age. Methods In this prospective, multicenter study, 140 age-matched men and women ...

    6. Frequency doubling technology, optical coherence technology and pattern electroretinogram in ocular hypertension

      Frequency doubling technology, optical coherence technology and pattern electroretinogram in ocular hypertension
      Background To assess which of three methods, namely, optical coherence tomography (OCT), pattern electroretinogram (PERG) or frequency-doubling technology (FDT), is the most sensitive and specific for detecting early glaucomatous damage in ocular hypertension (OH). Methods Fifty-two patients with OH (24 men and 28 women, mean age of 56+/-9.6 years) with an intraocular pressure (IOP) 21 mmHg and fifty-two control patients (25 men and 27 women, mean age of ...

  2. About University of Bologna

    University of Bologna

    University of Bologna (Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna, UNIBO) is one of the oldest continually operating degree-granting universities in the world, and the second largest university in Italy. It was probably the first university founded in the western world (conventionally AD 1088, but the true date is uncertain) and since 2000, its motto has been Alma mater studiorum (Latin for "fostering mother of studies"). The university of Bologna received a charter from Frederick I Barbarossa in 1158, but in the 19th century, a committee of historians led by Giosuè Carducci traced the birth of the University back to 1088, making it arguably the longest-lived university in the West. The University of Bologna is historically notable for its teaching of canon and civil law, and is presently one of the most important universities in Europe.

     

    The University counts about 100,000 students in its 23 faculties. It has branch centers in Reggio nell'Emilia, Imola, Ravenna, Forlì, Cesena and Rimini and a branch center abroad in Buenos Aires.
