Medtronic its dissection launched in May 2010 and is a total of 50 patients to register in 25 centers in the United States. Zvonimir Krajcer, Director of Peripheral Vascular Disease Service at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, the study treated the first patient with type B aortic dissection. Patients with acute, complicated type B aortic dissection require immediate treatment, Valiant the Valiant Captivia system very promising as a minimally invasive treatment for this challenging patient population, said Dr. Krajcer. This study will help to determine if the Valiant Captivia safe and effective alternative safe and effective alternative to invasive surgery for these patients .
Jules Hillier, Director of Communications, said: Involving young people in our work is the key to what Brook does and it was fantastic, with the volunteers on the compilation and presentation of of their campaign to work we look forward. Development and expansion of of the campaign next year.‘The measurement accuracy intraocular pressure is decisive by identifying and the treatment of glaucoma,’in the article. Some properties of the cornea including its thickness at the center and the radius his curve have been known to affect the accuracy of this measurement. Renyi Wu, the Singapore Eye Research Institute, and colleagues investigated the the prevalence and consequences corneal arch in 3,015 people aged between 40 to 80 Participants underwent interview and eye exams, including the cornea arcus measurements, assessment of intraocular pressure and identification the cornea with a slit lamp.. Ocular pressure the only treatable risk factor for glaucoma, which frequent cause of irreversible blindness worldwide, according to background information in the article.
There is no known explanation for the association of corneal arcus with higher intraocular pressure, the authors write. 2010time may be changes in the biomechanical properties corneal in the her eyes with the cornea arc to be how such mechanisms to emerge as major influence clinical tag, intraocular pressure measurements. More research is needed the clinical impact the clinical significance of these findings for intraocular pressure assessment at eyes of with corneal arcus, the authors conclude. Surv Ophthalmol 2010.
