Outcome of deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty patients with intraoperative Descemet 's membrane perforation: A retrospective cross-sectional study

Conclusion: Not all patients of intraoperative DM perforation (including macro perforation) needs to be converted to penetrating keratoplasty. DALK can be successfully done if the perforation is identified early and managed adequately. This is the only known study which has shown a large series of successful DALK even with macro perforations.

Rising demands in chemotherapy and limited supply of natural taxol have ultimately increased the cost of the drug. Semi synthesis using taxol precursors is not able to meet the global supply and has intensified the need to find alternative ways of taxol production. In the present st...

Minimizing the nanoparticles’ biohazard remains a challenge due to the insufficient understanding on the nanoparticle-induced cell death mechanism. In the presented study, we observed the lysosome and genome injuries and so caused cell cycle changes and regulations of retinal ganglion neuron cell 5 (RG...

Abstract SUMMARYSurveillance studies have shown that OXA-48-like carbapenemases are the most common carbapenemases in Enterobacterales in certain regions of the world and are being introduced on a regular basis into regions of nonendemicity, where they are responsible for nosocomial outbreaks. OXA-48, OXA-181, OXA-232, OXA-204, OXA-162, and OXA-244, in that order, are the most common enzymes identified among the OXA-48-like carbapenemase group. OXA-48 is associated with different Tn1999 variants on IncL plasmids and is endemic in North Africa and the Middle East. OXA-162 and OXA-244 are derivatives of OXA-48 and a...

Conclusions: Management of ocular hypotony is typically directed at the underlying etiology. Idiopathic hypotony poses a unique treatment challenge. If excess aqueous flow across the ciliary body face is responsible, intentional closure of the iridocorneal angle may preserve vision.
